Another Nintendo Direct is among us. On September 1st at 7am PT, we will be given a bunch of news surrounding the Nintendo 3DS.  On the Software side, the Nintendo 3DS has lots of titles coming very soon that will likely get covered such as:

  • Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse
  • Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice
  • Dragon Quest VII
  • Yokai Watch 2
  • Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice
  • Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack
  • Pokemon Sun and Moon
  • Mario Party Star Rush
  • Ever Oasis

However what is more interesting and more fun is to think about what will be getting announced? There usually is some sort of crazy surprise hidden in these directs. Recently they have announced the Galaxy Nintendo 3DS. It seems incredibly random to just announce a variant out of the blue. Could this be part of a bigger announcement to come?

Let us know what new titles you think will get announced? Mother 3? A new Mario or Mega Man? Monster Hunter Stories?
