Seeing as they've recently given out a load of release dates this will hopefully be some previously unannounced games.

To quote the Nintendo twitter feed: "Mr Iwata will reveal new games for #WiiU in a new #NintendoDirectEU at 2pm GMT on 23/01"

Looks like this is the panic stations Nintendo direct everyone's been expecting since Christmas sales figures for the Wii U came out. They're gonna need to pull out the biggest guns they have for this one. It's go big or go home time for Wii U.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
I'm pretty sure even the 360 ans PS3 (especially the latter),were not over night success stories, I can remember when the 360 came out I was still in school, and next to nobody had one, but if I look now at the amount of kiddos with one there is probably about 20x more, if not even more.

Kevin this is why people say you are a troll.

PrometheusFan's avatar
People will call me a troll regardless, but if that's the sort of post people regard as trolling then they probably don't know what the actual definition of "trolling" is. If I'd posted something like "lolz, Ninty don't got no new games to bring out cuz they suck and their console sucks" then yes, that would absolutely be trolling, but saying Nintendo needs to pull out something big to get people interested in the Wii U? That's mere observation.

I'm not saying your a troll right now it just reads like your a troll I actually enjoy your posts most of the time (It is good for a little chuckle)

Why does everyone assume all trolls are illiterate?
Making inflammatory comments to provoke a reaction is trolling, and can be as well or badly written as the troll wants, or can manage.

I really hope Monolith Softs new game is shown with an EU release confirmation. Xenoblade Chronicles was magical.
PrometheusFan's avatar
It was easily the best first party release from Nintendo this generation imo... but boy did we have to pry it out of Japan with a proverbial crowbar to Nintendo's fingers. If they have any sense they'll avoid future upset by just announcing an english language release for their new game from the start.

Save some games for E3 Nintendo. You're going to need a very good E3 if you are to combat the attention Sony and Microsoft will be getting.
Dead's avatar
I'm sure they will have plenty to announce and show at E3, there's plenty of games that have yet to be announced.
Dead 4 years ago
Robichoico's avatar
They only need to save Mario, Zelda and Metroid for E3 for it to be a success really. Hell Only announce Zelda and it'll probably get as much, if not more coverage than the others.

I don't think merely relying on the announcement of a new game everyone knows is coming anyway is going to be enough on it's own. I mean, no one was rushing out to buy a Gamecube when Twilight Princess was announced, were they? Even when the big Mario, Zelda and Metroid titles got released on Gamecube, it did nothing... on Wii it was already popular without those titles, so the question is if Nintendo's "go to" franchises can be relied on to "carry" hardware on their own anymore. Well... all I'll say there is that the Wii U DID launch with a new Mario title...
PrometheusFan 4 years ago
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Twilight Princess got released at the very end of the Gamecube's live cycle so I assume all the people already had one also I for one didn't even know Twilight Princess was a Gamecube title till a few years ago when I saw a list of the Gamecube's rarest games. (Twilight Princess was the reason I got a Wii)

That was probably a bad example for me to use. Should have said Wind Waker.

I'd love to see a Zelda or Metroid at E3, that'll be absolutely epic. I don't own the Wii U yet but an announcement like that would get me seriously considering it.

I will give you The Wind Waker Kevin since some people weren't happy when it was revealed to be Cel-shaded but I thought it looked beautiful & in my opinion it still does look beautiful. The Wind Waker still looks better than a lot of the games today, the game is timeless
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Robichoico's avatar
Yeah the Wind Waker is one of the hilarious ones. Americans and ignorant people hated it at first because of the design. Then it went on to do pretty well, enough that it was considered one of the best games in the last decade. (despite one or two big flaws)
Robichoico 4 years ago
Dead's avatar
Wind Waker is brilliant, easily my favourite Zelda game, and I love the art style, really love toon style games :)

We've seen quite a few new Indie games getting announced over the past week. Seems like Nintendo is focusing on making new talent. I'm not expecting a huge amount. Maybe a big name like Metroid, Mario or Starfox to tide us over till E3 where the other big guns will sit. Either way it'll be a few months before we do see these. Not gonna help sales currently.
Dead's avatar
I'm hoping for a new Starfox, and F-Zero.
Dead 4 years ago
Robichoico's avatar
I never really got into either of those two so they're kinda eh for me. If Nintendo can announce a Tomb Raider to come out the same time as the other consoles that would make me so happy. But doubtful. I'm gonna be optimistic and hope they announce a new Metroid game, A Yoshi Game, a New Ice Climbers and finally confirm the rumoured One Piece: New World Cruise from a few month back.

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
To be fair if an exclusive One Piece game is annoused/released I would go out and buy a Wii U right away
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Dead's avatar
There's definitely a Yoshi game coming, was leaked by Bestbuy, could be an official announcement for that tomorrow, although I hope not, I want it to be something unexpected.

Funnily enough there was a new One Piece game announced for release in Europe just today. Once again PS3 only. I admit I am actually a bit surprised that this one isn't going on Wii U as well, given that the related Fist of the North Star game is coming to Wii U.

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
If you are talking about One Piece Kaizoku Musou 2(Pirate Warriors 2) it was announced for Europe a while ago
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Robichoico's avatar
There's Pirate Warriors 2 for the PS3/Vita (PS3 only west side it seems) but there was a One Piece: New World Cruise based on the previous Unlimited games name dropped a few months back.

Also, I don't expect anything spectacular, but who else is hoping for something Smash Bros-related?
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
Smash Bros on the 3DS and Wii U announced for late this year would be the best news. Not that it'll happen.

Well it is still possible that they will show some kind of title or logo today, to spark anticipation. Of course, they'll be saving all the best stuff for E3.

To be honest, it's only meant to be like a 35 minute video. The chances of much being announced today are pretty slim, unfortunately. Let's all try not to get our hopes up TOO high.

Mario Kart will be shown at E3 apparently. That'd be nice. There's now a Mario Party-style game for Miis.

HOLY SHEET! Shin Megami Tensei Meets Fire Emblem!!!!!!!! And now a new Zelda announcement! I was wrong. I am now pretty excited!

I liked the Shin Megami Tensei game I had on PS2, and Fire Emblem is ridiculously awesome.

SMT Meets Fire Emblem, Zelda, Yoshi's Epic Yarn and some kind of Xenoblade/Monster Hunter/Phantasy Star Online game. I can't hold my man juices in for much longer!

I must say, from previous experiences I wasn't expecting much. I am happy to admit that I was mistaken this time. Well played Nintendo. Well played.

Nice, Wonderful 101 looks fantastic, very Viewtiful Joe like in the art style, new Yoshi looks promising too. I think Mario Kart and Smash Bros being playable at E3 could mean a Christmas launch for one of them at least. Happy about the Wind Waker remake too, it's my favourite Zelda, and I will happily buy it again. Miiverse improvements and the 30p NES games are good too, not to bothered about much else, but others will be, and it's sure to get people interested.

E3 will be interesting indeed. It could potentially be the best one since 2007.

That was just WIN, WIN, WIN! New Yoshi.....YES! I've been holding back on buying a Wii U until an announcement like this was made. I would buy a Wii U just for the Wind Waker HD remake, but the fact that there is a new Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart AND Smash Bros?!?! All I gotta do now is wait for the bundle preorders to start apperaing on here once release dates are known.....
