The time for the direct seems pretty late for Japan - 11pm. I wonder if that's an indication that it'll involve news which is more relevant to the West instead...

That, or Iwata fancied a lie-in.

Hopefully it will give me reason not to throw my Wii U in the disposal. I only use it for surfing the web since Zombi U is about up.
Blimey. That's a fairly extreme response; most GAFers simply threaten to trade it in. Are you taking cues from the "Amir0x Toilet Bowl School of Photography" on this one?

Could perhaps be a trailer for SSB? Since that series is huge in the west. Just a CGI trailer and some sort of information on connectivity between 3DS and Wii U version?


I hope its a new Advance Wars game!

Not getting roped in- I can only have my heart-broken once a year and I always try and leave that for E3.

I see this as planned before the Wii U's poor sales.

I hope the Wii U's poor sales make them show games that are still a ways away.

I think regardless of the sales, this will show a lot on the Virtual Console: which could be the difference of me buying one in the next few months, or next few years.

Two hours later and I could watch that.

But fuck yeah, new games!
Please let there be awesome ones.

New Bayonetta 2 trailer, please, based Iwata! ;_;

Cheesemeister, I'm counting on you and your Twitter skills!


EDIT: Why is there the wrong hype train picture in the OP?! :mad:

Not anywhere
"We realized Wii U sales have not been encouraging lately, so we decided to do an Amnesia Fortnight and created a new Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Mother in two weeks. I hope you can enjoy it."

I wonder if we will actually see complete new games (e.g. Yoshi's Land, Smash Bros., Retro game) or if we 'just' get new information on TW101, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin, etc.

I hope they show something good, my friend has already lost 500$ at the stock market. Knowing how things usually go with Nintendo, it'll drop even further though :(
