About time too. Hope its a biggie. Zelda or Metroid would be great. Would love to see a side scrolling Metroid on 3ds too. Super Metroid still my fave in the series.

I wonder how many 'new' games? Or will it just be release dates for ones we know of already? Like pikmin, wii fit u, wonderful 101. Can't see nothing major although a wii u luigi's mansion would not surprise me with the amount of games that seem to be taking up the idea of handheld and console release lately or even a wii sports u.

I'm actually hoping for some interesting new e shop games and maybe some old ones like meatboy being announced for it.

Of course the trouble with saying new games is that people immediately expect big revelations. It could indeed mean games that have yet to be released. Still, if Nintendo were to show off a new trailer for, say Bayonetta 2, you wouldn't be disappointed. Not saying they will of course because I know as much as you do about this broadcast. Nothing!

I was very wrong about the Pokemon prediction, but I'm going to remain skeptical about this one. We know it's focus is Wii U "titles" and "services" so we can't expect a ton of games.

I bet they'll talk about upcoming games such as Lego City Stories, Pikmin etc. Stuff we already know about. I think they'll try and make a big announcement out of Resident Evil Revelations, but unfortunately we heard about that just yesterday...

However, I don't think it's out of the question for them to talk about Bayonetta 2, they may even go as far as to show us Retro Studios' game, which I'm guessing is Starfox. I'd bet that we won't hear about those titles, though.

That's my prediction.

Whatever happened to that Yoshi game that was supposed to be developed by Good Feel? Was it cancelled? Because I can remember seeing a notification about it on Super Mario Wiki. Or was it just a rumour?

I hope they annouce an Update to the 3DS that takes away Friend codes completely and allows you to put your NNID in there. Ether that or annouce that Mortal Kombat is coming for WiiU.

I want to see some news on the new Super Smash Bros game, haven't seen any for a while. Just have to wait and see though.

I'm assuming that Resident Evil Revelations will be shown, but other than that I cant think of what they will be showcasing. But I will predict that no new Mario, Zelda or Smash Bross game will be mentioned.

Still, you have to assume it's quite big. After all, if it was just an update I would assume that Satoru Shibata would be presenting it. The fact that it's the Top-Dog Iwata hints at something more interesting.

So you have to re-buy virtual console games that you already purchased on Wii and transferred to Wii U. Nothing short of disgusting.

So this is a disappointing watch.

"NintendoDirect will focus on new games". Speaks about Miiverse for 15 minutes and tells us new game info will come at E3. And I'm sure that fire Emblem thing would be interesting if I was Japanese.

Wind Waker HD.

God exists!

:D :D :D

So 2 new Zelda games for Wii U. Wind Waker for the Wii U will have a better gaming experience and you'll be able to play on TV or on the gamepad.

This is MORE than I expected, I totally forgive them for taking longer with the new title. Well done Nintendo 8)

We have new 3D Mario, a new Zelda, a remake of Wind Waker, a Yoshi game, a Fire Emblem crossover and new details for already announced games. What more do you want?!

Hey ho, a new HD Zelda game. Tetra and Toon Link look more shiny. Should be interesting.
