Nintendo Direct

Nintendo announced this morning that there will be yet another Nintendo Direct tomorrow in time for Valentine’s Day, this time with a bit of a notice. Maybe Nintendo has finally learned that announcing a Direct Feed before a few hours of its actual broadcasting isn’t the greatest idea eh? I think we can all agree that a 24 hour notice goes a long way. Well anyway, Nintendo will spend the majority of the feed talking about the future games for the Nintendo 3DS. However, they will also talk about future Wii U titles in the broadcast for North America.

Unlike the last Nintendo Direct, which was global announcements for the Wii U for every region, this will encompass regional presentations running at the same time like most of the past Nintendo Directs. The Nintendo of America stream happens at  9 a.m. Eastern time (6 a.m. Pacific time), while the Nintendo of Europe stream begins at 2 p.m. (UK time)

The last Nintendo Direct created quite a stir, will this one top it? Tomorrow is sure to be interesting either way.

  • Fire Emblem Euro release date, or I quit!


  • I wouldn’t have my Valentine’s Day any other way! Wake up early just to watch this! Hoping for news on Bravely Default and Animal Crossing New Leaf. Maybe even a nice cool Zelda Wii U Bundle. That would make me buy a Wii U in a heart beat.

  • Surely, they don’t have as many gamechangers this time around?

  • I very much doubt it. But then, I keep my expectations for Nintendo abysmally low.

  • Last Nintendo Direct was all about 1st/2nd party games, and Satoru Iwata said they would talk about 3rd party games at another time. Maybe this is that time… please?

  • Will it top the last Nintendo Direct? I doubt it, but I hope it’s good.
