Nintendo usually does a ND every month and when they couldn't in December they specifically called attention to it. In fact, just two days ago I was wondering when they'd announce this month's.

It seems like they just fall out of the sky because they only announce them a day ahead of time, before there was a couple days (up to a week sometimes) lead-in.

I reckon investors are waiting to have some positive news as regards Wii U's profitablity in the future, so it would be a perect time to drop a couple bombs.

Well, all the promised launch window games are now Q2, so there goes that. Q3 is summer, so that doesn't really have to be jampacked. But yeah, they need something especially for the investor meeting. Though last year it basically boiled down to ,,Well, we're making some new 2D Mario, wait for footage later''. In one of the last JP Directs, Monolith has been teased, so hopefully that could lead to something tomorrow. But recent actions for the WiiU made me cautious.

Price drop after 1/2 month on sale? Come on now. Even the 3DS wasn't this early.

The possibilities! New Wii U games! Can't handle the hype. Will we finally hear about the other unannounced Wii U games in the launch window Reggie mentioned before? Personally I hope they save the later in the year, bigger stuff for reveal at E3, and use this for something along the lines of Yoshi's Land for Summer release, etc.

I am certain they could figure out a better control scheme for the gamepad if they were forced to

Best part is that taking into account we have absolutely no clue about Nintendo first party games beyond March aside for Pikmin 3, they will deliver no matter what do they show. At this point, they would really have to go out of their way to have a failed ND.

True, but it still doesn't stop the sting of crappy digital triggers.

Unlikely that that's something that'd be announced in a Direct, it directly affects too few people. I'm not saying it's insignificant - it's really something that should be fixed! - but it's not really useful information except to a minority.

Hyped for this. Anything new will be great. And Europe are still awaiting an official Q1 release list aren't they?

I'm curious how GC VC will be possible, since many GC games weren't shy about using the analog triggers and the GamePad/Protroller doesn't have them.

I don't see how any of those could control the water like analog triggers can. Anyway, I shouldn't have said that it's impossible as they can probably get it to work even if it isn't as smooth as with triggers. I just hope that the re-release is through an HD remaster instead of a simple port.

I don't think there will be much. Probably just release dates for Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, etc.

We might see a trailer for Bayonetta 2. I highly doubt any big game reveals. Maybe some more ports.

I think they have to and should be saving most everything they have for E3.

Surprised there's no hype for details on The Wonderful 101. Everyone's all "Bayonetta 2! Bayonetta 2!" but Kamiya himself is directing TW101. It looks great, yet we barely know anything beyond one level of the game.
