The usual, Zelda, Metroid, and F-Zero. Although would be more interested in something new, original and surprising.

If they announced any of those games, that would be extremely surprising this early in the life span of the console.

But when they say new, do they mean new games that acutally haven't been announced ever, or games that were mentioned or showcased briefly (I.E. Wii Fit U, Wonderful 101) but are considered new beacuse they haven't been given release dates?

I hope a Wii Sports sequel, and a first party franchise at least will be announced.

I wonder if it'll focus on 1st or 3rd party games? These events have tended to focus on the later with a smattering of 1st party announcements.
To me this is very sensible of Nintendo. The line up from now till June looks decent enough but beyond that there's nothing. Perhaps tomorrow we'll see a big announcement or two of games that'll be playable at E3? An update on Smash would be nice, keep the trailer and playable demo till E3 but perhaps a title or a progress report would be nice.
I hope they give Mario a rest. Now I'm not saying I'd complain if they announced a 3D Mario game, far from it; but after last year I think it's time Zelda came back and perhaps some of the lesser known titles. After Kid Icarus last year I'd love to see another franchise see some love. F-Zero, Metroid- surprise me.
My prediction is a title or two we don't know about but the big guns will, rightfully, be held back till June.
Hi.
Thanks for reading, you know its nice to see people like you reading what I have to say, and I aplaud you for puting up with my bad gramar and spelling mistacks.

I think it'll be features like the google map app thing, as well as talking more about the up and coming games like pikimin and lego city undercover. Id be surprised if they revel anything new, id like them too, but i doubt we will see them do that.

Shame it's an awkward time, I would have loved to watch it.
Guess I'll just catch up later. I will scream my head off if it's Rhythm Thief 2 on Wii U. I may be murdered for this, but I'd be much happier with that announcement than a new Zelda.

If Nintendo Directs from the past (aside from Pokémon x&y) are anything to go by, Nintendo's meaning of New is 'Games yet to be released'.
So I'm guessing it will be details on wonderful 101 and Game & Wario etc.
Not getting my hopes up this time :(

I think you may be disappointed. Not that I know anything of course. Wonder if we'll see Resident Evil Revelations Wii U tomorrow?

Oh dear. Please tell me a multiplatform port of a 3DS game isn't the ENTIRE focus of the ND? Really hoping we get at least a few other game announcements..

I reckon they'll draw attention to the games which will expected to sell well in the near future (Lego City Undercover, Pikmin 3 etc) BUT will possibly throw us a couple of bones in terms of trailers for as yet unannounced opuses.

Maybe they'll announce what Retro Studios is currently developing, for example?

Hopefully a new mario kart to celebrate the 20th anniversary and a new wii sports. I'd love to see what they do with the gamepad in either of the two, the golf and baseball games have shown what kind of thing could be done in wii u sports. Or maybe a new game which could support 2 gamepads, that would be awesome! But it will most likely just be some news on games yet to be released. :roll:

My body is ready for a new franchise, maybe one that targets those guys that still think Nintendo is for babies. But personally I love the wonderfully colourful and interesting Nintendo worlds.

I wonder if we'll hear about those new Sonic games SEGA said are coming out this this year.

Anything, as long as it doesn't suck. The Wii U has an awful lack of content past March, and we literally have nothing to look forward to at the moment. I'm hoping for a new IP straight from Nintendo themselves, though I wouldn't be too surprised if it was a major one of their franchises like Zelda or Metroid. As long as its not Mario, I'll be content.

Yay! Can't wait! I hope it showcases more future games (of course unlikely to give a release date, but maybe a time frame?) and some release dates for expected games. Like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101.

The Wii U needs this badly as it has a lot of negative news story's floating about.

I really need something positive to look forward too before Microsoft and Sony steal the spot light away from Wii U.
