Kirby's freaking dream collection! Or when that naturally doesn't happen, give us an Animal Crossing release date! :D

Sounds good. Don't know whether to watch it live here, or wait until it appears on the Nintendo Channel so I can watch it on my TV.
Who am I kidding, I'll just end up doing both! =D

Nintendo Direct to showcase games for Wii U and 3DS. For Wii U they should be looking at games just beyond the launch window as well as recap on games that are coming out during the window. Also news on restructuring Wii Mode AND Wii U Virtual Console would be nice, and any further performance updates be ready and available, ending with full Nintendo TVii support in the UK (and hopefully with a partnership with Sky, plus other broadcasters for catch-up support etc).

For the 3DS, I want to see upcoming games, any further Virtual Console offerings, and if any further media apps (such as Netflix) become available.

However, I really want them to announce how 3DS/Wii U crossplay will work, AND most importantly, I want Nintendo to announce a universal eShop that makes life easier for everyone with the complete integration of Wii Shop Channel into the Wii U eShop, and I want full integration of one's email address link all of their Nintendo hardware to their Nintendo Network ID. Said eShop also needs to be accessible on PC, Tablet, Phone and any other internet-enabled device (which they're working on), and allow you to purchase software for any of your Nintendo hardware, allow for it to be downloaded to said hardware, and if said software is available on other Nintendo hardware, to allow you to download it to your other hardware at next to no additional charge. This section may be seen as a pipe dream, but if Nintendo deliver on this section in its entirety, Nintendo Network would finally be on par with what people want from a digital medium.

LEGO City Undercover 3DS information. Next to nothing of it.
And I won't get my hopes up high, but most people on ACC and the forum thread here will be hoping for Animal Crossing 3DS info, and possibly release.

With the Wii U you can watch it on your TV!

I'm hoping that they announce some new games here. These things are awesome and I love each one, but they have a habit of showing trailers/clips of things we have already seen loads of. (I'm guessing Lugi's mansion will be there though!)

I am starting to find these a bit frustrating. They just seem so random and they always confirm little things- Never anything that big. I mean you look at the 3DS launch line up there's nothing on it pass sticker star. I blame these random Nintendo Directs. I want Majoras Mask 3D.
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

Oh, also confirm a UK release for Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright. That would be awesome!

I wonder how many people are going to be watching the presentation on their Wii U's today? It's a challenge I'm most likely going to accept myself. Any other takers? =3
