Looks like SalesGAF was right. I hope something good comes from this.

First Smash Trailer. I can FEEL it!!

Please don't do this to me. My hype went from 2/10 to 11/10 after reading that. I'd kill for a trailer.
KILL!

I doubt this. This is probably panic mode Nintendo we're dealing with, so they're gonna announce projects that are near completion and releasing soon, to drive up WiiU sales.

I'm expecting one or two announcements to fill out their summer/Sept release.

Then the rest will be saved for e3.
I also imagine we may get the first taste of Monolithsoft next major title.

Hope it's an actual first-party announcement, or something from Platinum, and not Project Fanservice or Pikmim 3 online functionality.

I know something that doesn't take much time to develop to drive up sales...
F-Zero GX HD Edition. I'm sorry.

Pretty sure the whole Direct will be First-Party focused. Or at least about Nintendo published titles.

Maybe Nintendo took part in the THQ auction and will use this as a chance to announce their newest acquisitions lol.

Would be amazing, easily do able given Nintendo's financial position and make a lot of sense in the West. Read last part for why it won't happen.

Reading the description of the event, should we change the title?
No mention of "NEW GAMES" at all, but "incoming services and games", that means "already announced things we would like to present better and deeper", imho.

They have to announce games sooner of later.

Didn't Iwata said there would be OS fixes before the end of December? Did it materialize?

This is good to know, Wii U needs some fresh news to revitalise its image.

Seems like they possibly might have or will buy something

That tweet is from November though; so it doesn't really fit the timeline of things with THQ.

Picking up a studio would be good for Ninty if;
- Their struggling with HD
- They need a game ready to go in 2013
- And they feel they need another studio to let them support 3DS/WiiU equally

TWEWY?

Soryy, i had to :(

They'll obviously show:
Exclusive RE7 directed by Mikami
Chrono Cross Sequel
FF7 remake
F-Zero UX made by GX team
New Waverace
Eternal Darkness 2 made by Retro and ex SK staff
Half-Life 3

This much is obvious.

Considering their last two Nintendo directs delivered on the hype, I expect Half Life 3 as a WiiU exclusive.

The only question is, will Shenmue 3 be there, or are they saving that for E3?
