Tomorrow's Direct focusing on Spring / Summer titles.

A new #NintendoDirectEU with a focus on #WiiU spring/summer titles will be streamed tomorrow, 17/5 at 4pm CEST http://ow.ly/i/283XY
E3 Direct will focus on Autumn and beyond.

For #WiiU titles coming this autumn and beyond, there will be a #NintendoDirectEU around E3 time in June http://ow.ly/l5Q8e
EDIT: oops, meant to post this in the Nintendo section. Oh well.....

Having watched a couple of Nintendo Directs, I have but one question:
What exactly does Iwata have jammed up his rectum to explain that bizarre posture?

Good luck.

Nintendo Direct is a good idea, but not a single one of them, has me convinced that Nintendo's woes are going way anytime soon!

That's what happens when Reggie comes around to kick your ass.

Mr. Iwata is lucky he managed to run away in enough time to keep his name.

I can't wait to see what old and overused IP's we'll be getting this year! Nintendo Direct, THE number 1 source for Nintendo fans, ...and Nintendo fans only, everyone else can go screw themselves.

I'm looking forward to this but I have to go out and meet my boyfriend, damn him. I think the summer one will be the most interesting one but any news on Wii U games is good at this time so I'm a bit gutted I'm gonna miss it.

Yeah, Microsoft and Sony, watch and learn how Nintendo give you a botched 50hz conversion of a 19 year old game, with subtitles in 3 different languages simultaneously plastered all over the screen.



To be fair, I'm interested to see what they have to say. Can they turn things around? I've just about lost all hope to be honest.

Even if the IPs are old and overused (even though you're clearly referring to Mario and the various titles are all of different genres/gameplay style), that doesn't stop them being good games or stop them from selling well.

Just when are they going to bring out a BIG HD title?


If I was a hardcore Nintendo fanboy: I would say they are 'coming soon' !! But I think they are have trouble developing HD standard titles. You don't think?

Also, when they do bring out that BIG HD zelda experience, I DON'T want to look at my low res Tablet Controller, thank you!!

I wouldn't expect much from this Nintendo Direct (maybe 1 new game announcement at best).

From the sounds of it it's basically an "update" Direct for 1st party games they have already shown...the new stuff will be in 3 weeks time at the E3 Nintendo Direct. I think this will just be a "clear the decks" type of direct (get all the news out about announced games so they concentrate on the newness next time)

Expect more from-
Pikmin 3
Wonderful 101 (maybe a date)
Wii Fit U
Wii U Party
Super Luigi U
Game & Wario.

...and maybe a few 3DS bits and pieces.

We might get Wind Waker reborn footage....if we're very,very lucky....

...and maybe some detail about what's happening with their next big system update.

If they show more of the new Xeno_____ game, this could be rather exciting.

Pikmin 3 looked lush.

Still, it would have been nice to have had a couple of second teaser for what they'll be showing around E3 time at the next Nintendo Direct....even just a split second reflection Samus' face in her visor (like in Metroid Pime when you hit electrical traps).....a man can dream

I don't get SEGA sometimes, they have the Nintendo exclusives, and then the next few games are on like EVERY console ever (Even the damn Vita gets them!) and then they go Nintendo exclusive for one game again??

All in all, usual Nintendo tosh, oh look another Mario Olympics game, so amazing, , Nintendo have got to the point where they have partnered with SEGA to get games, which is the only interesting thing really as SEGA still make good games, a shame the next Sonic game won't be available on all platforms, but at least we'll be getting the remastered versions of Sonic 1 and 2 whilst the Wii U gets the old emulated ones.

I'm not criticising Super Metroid. It's Nintendo's lazy attitude that's the problem.

UK (and English speaking EU) gamers should have been able to download the English language 60hz version that's available in the USA.. Instead, everybody has been lumbered with a crappy, decades old 50hz botch job, with a ridiculous translation solution.

That kind of attitude makes me want to part with 300 even less than I did already.

Pikmin 3 looked good. I will be disappointed if it is only single player though. It's just a shame there was not a killer announcement such as a mario kart/ smash bros game though.

Couldn't be happier with the news of THREE exclusive Sonic titles for both 3DS and Wii U. Nintendo done well to chase after this as imo the Nintendo consoles have become Sonic's natural home over the years and while Sonic may not be as big as he once was, it's still a big draw for hardcore gamers.

It's exciting to think we will be getting both a brand new 3D Sonic AND Mario game by Christmas. Sonic: Lost World looks like it could be great, hope they do some cool things with the Gamepad and also allow W&N support. Most of all I'm hoping for the last mystery title is to be Sonic Colours 2!! Oh yeah please let that happen Sega!

A SUMO guy kind of teased a Sonic vs. Mario Kart on Twitter earlier, which could be that third exclusive title. Could be a good gae.

That would be interesting. I'm personally hoping for a Sonic Adventure 3!

...wait, SUMO are also doing the next LittleBigPlanet games arn't they?

Sonic Vs Mario Kart and also LittleBigPlanet Karting under the same roof, ...that's a pretty big task, I have faith though, SUMO have done brilliant work with the SEGA All Stars Series.
