Nintendo Direct EU [and now US] about Wii U + 3DS on 5th Dec @ 5pm GMT

if nintendo announces the nin id-miiverse for 3ds along with the migration of already nin ids, (so everything connected with your first nin id)i will not eat chocolate for one WHOLE MONTH. believe me that would be huge for me .. : p
 
Nintendo, just tell me that Skip have been quiet for a while because there are new Art Style games coming to WiiU and 3DS and you can have me for eternity. Anytime you want, even if I'm tired or had a rough day
 
American and European one? What?! They're simultaneous what!?

Only 8:12 in Japan...there's still time. BUT! If it were to be simultaneous it'd mean it was at like 2AM...
 
What are the known Wii U games that aren't released yet? They have to fill Dec/Jan with something, right?

Want to confess something. Every time a nintendo direct is announced, I'm always at work and I learn it from the gaf forum. It's a very small but unique feeling every single time! Pure joy while your trying to sell g-plus for consoles...
 
I wonder if Wii U will be at the VGAs at all?




Pikmin 3
Lego City Stories
Wonderful 101
Game & Wario
Nintendo seems to be in love with Nintendo Directs not sure they would give exclusives to VGAs but they should do something

Bayonetta 2 could have benefited from VGAs this year even some early stage clips would help.
Or some other core game that is coming to Wii U we least expect.
 
I certainly would like to know what they're releasing on 3DS and Wii U from now until the end of March. We don't have any release dates right now. Last year, we got jack shit from Mario Kart 7 (Dec 4) to Kid Icarus Uprising (March 23). Let's not do that again, Nintendo.
We had resident evil revelations in February.
 
If it's Good Feel, I'll get joy. I felt Wario Shake It was great playing, and Epic Yard played and felt incredibly well and was great fun. It was just tuned to be as incredibly easy for kid access.

Really, of all the second-party-ish teams, I'd peg Good Feel as the best choice to do a Yoshi game right now.
That's why I continue to hope that, eventually, Good Feel will start tapping into their old Konami roots. I mean, we got at least one director there that worked on the Goemon series. They could probably bang out a decent platformer that's more than just a pretty face, if they were allowed to. And honestly, I think Yoshi deserves that much.

Think we're due for a JP Nintendo Direct, as well. Wouldn't be surprised to see one announced tonight or sometime in the next week or so. As already mentioned, Nintendo's release calendar for January in Japan is an absolute wasteland.
I thought the rumor was that Japan was going to get a ND of their own next week...? Or was I mistaken?

If the rumor about Retro making a game targetting Xbox360/PS3 players is correct, Nintendo should take the chance to tease them and us at the VGA's. Don't see it happen tbh
 
Just read the 3DS+ and 3DS rumors from dualpixel.

I have never heard of this site in my life. Is the source legitimate?
Some outrageous stuff posted there. Not sure if I should post it or not.

I'm so conflicted... is this a joke site?

Just read them, absolute bollocks. Things I wish were true: a model with upgraded cameras (with flash), new web browser, social app that combines facebook, twitter and google+ (although why would they do that, now they have miiverse?)

3d stylus, circle pad built in and new clickable sticks, retractable controller, skype... just absolute nonsense. Skype is Microsoft owned.

Thanks for bringing me back down to earth. It would make more sense for miiverse to be rolled into the 3DS operating system somehow.

... I'd like to see a Wave Race 3DS.
me too

We've had like five locked threads about their next gen console rumors, including things like projectors built into the next Xbox and augmented reality glasses for the next Playstation. They are insane.

It's all starting to make sense. The rumor post read like the videogame news equivalent to the Onion.
So thats why the 'nintendo goes' site is banned as well I see.

JP Direct 8PM

Wii U detailing release in 3 days/launch titles. No mention of 3DS.

It's on like Donkey Kong.

TT______TT Hype deflated
 
From that Dual Pixels site:

PLEASE NOTE: This could all be true right now, but all of it could change tomorrow because THATS how gaming development works. I am not in any way, shape, or form trying to cover my ass if things don’t turn out the way we said it would. The reason that I put this up is because I see truth in this, not so I can spread fake things just to get people excited.
This is just pathetic.

Oh JP one too. That'll likely all be WiiU stuff then.
Guess Europe will be doing the 3DS deal...and the Japanese localisations with US.
 

Wow, the Nintendo Network is down. Surely this is totally unusual and not at all like the entire back end of last month.

I wish that figurine was something genuinely new. A Nintendo Direct for a game we already know about when we're facing another potential drought bums me out. As it is, we're overdue for a bunch of so far inaccessible features, like a full rundown of TVii's operation and anything to do with NFC.
 
The main Miiverse home menu probably not, but Miiverse itself could be implemented I think. The 3DS already lets you boot the web browser while a game is suspended, and given the 3DS is indeed browser based all you'd need is an associated application that directs you straight to it. The 3DS also already has screen capture. Every time you hit home it snaps a screenshot of both screens.
Wait what?! How the hell do you save the pictures?

It's not really a safe bet they're alluding to something. Iwata was making a Donkey Kong joke with the bananas. That became an oft-quoted meme on forums, so Trinen just referenced the meme. That's it.
Fair enough, I think it would have been better if I had phrased my words to sound more like an opinion instead. It's definitely what I believe but if you think it's not as important as I do, that's fine too.
