if Nintendo even mentions Mother it will only be to troll Mother fans.

Wii U Virtual Console with free license transfers from Wii VC, please.

That would be enough for me, but some new game announcements sound cool too, and hopefully talk about a big system update. Maybe with a Photo Channel like the Wii, Wii mode improvements, etc.

MUST. NOT. HYPE.

Monolith's game almost certainly isn't Mother. Itoi said he wasn't talking about a new game, and I think Iwata mentioned that Monolith's game would be a new IP, so it's ruled out on two fronts.

I'm just excited to hear something about NEW games, especially from Nintendo. After all, I bought a Wii U almost purely for Nintendo games, with everything else as bonuses.

The new IP is the game where they've mentioned trying to top Bethesda, so it should be pretty interesting.

Uh, so does this mean we probably won't see any real game reveals, just "so and so is hard at work developing a title we'll reveal in the near future"?

He's been talking about a "Mother (series) revival" on twitter. He also keeps talking about Mother 2 (Earthbound) and talking about how he misses fighting Master Belch, and doing other things in that game. Speculation is that there's either a re-release of the series a la Mother 1 + 2 or a remake of Mother 1/2 in the works. If Nintendo was smart, they'd commission their big RPG guns (Monolith Soft) on a remake of Mother 2, which sold buckets in Japan.

What I REALLY want is for them and Grezzo to create a brand-new RPG, collectively they created the Mana series, plus the founder of Grezzo and main creator, also created Chocobo and Moogle, true story!

I don't think it's a terrible prediction. I just don't see a game as massive as Smash being ready any time in 2013. :/

The Nintendo Direct starts, while billions of fans are watching. A giant flying yoshi appears to the japanese sky and Iwata can be seen sitting on its head. After a backflip, he lands on the ND room, wearing nothing except Mario's trousers. His body makes every woman explode, while yelling "Iwata!. His fabulous hairs shine on the sun. He picks up a cocumber and a mango, and using a mysterious technique, he merges them. The fusion's product is Super Mario Universe. Then, Sakurai appears to announce Kid Icarus: Uprising 2, while a trailer for SSB4 also appears as a hologram. Then Iwata punches the earth and a ton of Wii u exclusives appear, among them a Zelda game, Half Life 3, Shenmue 4, Iwata Brothers U., GTA VI, Xenoblade 2, Mother 4, Metroid Prime 4 and Doneky Kong Country HD Collection. The Nintendo Direct ends with Iwata laughing while he announces PS4 and Xbox 3 as Wii U accessories.

I think now would be a good opportunity for Nintendo to atleast reveal a small trailer of Monolith's new game so they can start to build some anticipation. (not that there isn't any already, evidently)

Even if they just mention Takahashi, it'd be heaven.

Yeah.. but why would they continue adding/ selling Wii VC games on Wii U if theyre dumping them in Wii mode forever? That would make a lot of people angry, specially Wii U owners who never got the Wii. I dont think "We know you just bought Super Mario Bros through the WiiU's Wii Mode, but if you want it on your GamePad outside the Wii mode you have to pay $5 again" will sit well with anyone. Nintendo can't be that inept..

We should all be expecting some sort of transfer, and if there isnt then we complain until there is.
