Nintendo Direct

I was just thinking we were overdue for another Nintendo Direct. This one wasn’t sprung on us like the one with the EarthBound announcement; we have just about 24 hours’ notice this time. But it goes out of its way to mention that it’ll cover “games coming this year,” so I suspect it’ll be a lot like this Nintendo Direct, the one that covered the games of summer 2013. Expect a release date for games like The Wind Waker HD, A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World. This is probably their chance to go into more detail about the games of E3 2013.

Nintendo Direct: August 7th, 2013

Have you all been vigilant about following the rumors of the fall System Update coming to the Wii U? Methinks some sort of “cross-play” between Virtual Console games on the Wii U and the 3DS is imminent—perhaps we can expect details about that during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct. Somewhat related—Miiverse still hasn’t come to the 3DS as promised. There’s so much to speculate about, and there are only 24 hours to place your proverbial bets!

What do you all see coming? I’ll be here in the morning to cover it (along with others), as usual. More information as it comes.

    I’d think this is the Wonderful 101 ND. Not expecting any new game announcements or anything.

    maybe we might hear more of Shin Megami Tensai X Fire Emblem for the Wii considering we really haven’t heard anything or seen anything in retrospec since Janurary. I mean it would make sense because afterall Shin Megami Tensai IV just came out and they are promoting both games. Maybe we might hear more of the New 3D Zelda as well. Cause at E3 they said they could have shown it but didn’t want to yet.

      That’s a good point, I forgot about the new Wii U Zelda. I’d love to see what they’ve been working on!

    I’m betting on details for SMTxFE, X, A Link Between Worlds, and Pokémon X/Y, since information is limited on them. Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway.

    Details on DKCTF would be nice, but not really as necessary since we pretty much know what to expect.

    They’ll probably talk about Mario Kart and Mario though first.

    Nintendo Directs are always fun, even if they don’t really announce any new games.

    I’m a dreamer, but I’d like to hear an announcement that Dragon Quest 7, Slime Morimori 3, Dragon Quest Monsters and Dragon Quest Monsters 2 (all 3DS) have all been announced for a western release. I’d take even ONE of those being announced.

    I am ready for the direct
