New Nintendo Direct tonight at 10pm - Well worth watching


Nintendo has announced that it will host a Nintendo Direct session tonight at 10pm. The firm will be discussing WiiU and 3DS titles releasing by the end of spring and we've heard from inside sources that it'll be well worth watching.




Excited?

Hopefully this will have a release date for Smash Bros and Bayonetta 2.

Lets hope they announce something to fill the gap between DK and MK8 on the wii-u for us people without a 3ds.
JoeToots 10 months ago
@Gloria: I would say that getting a release date for Smash is highly unlikely. They may come out and say that it will be out Q4 2014. Wanted checklist: 1) Mario Strikers U announcement 2) New X trailer and hopefully some details 3) Kirby release date 4) Sonic Boom details 5) Suprises

Unlikely, but not impossible.
Gloria 10 months ago
So they finally announce Rune Factory 4 release date in EU?

Is that wild speculation about Mario Strikers or has there been some leaks or something?

So excited!!!!

Sorry I'm not falling for this any more, Nintendo are a continuous let down - they will probably be announcing another Mario game. All that Nintendo need to do is learn from the handheld machine they have made and bring some of them ideas to the WiiU. Also they should be finding a way to link your DS to the WiiU in the same was the PlayStation does with the Vita. Imagine a Pokemon game for WiiU that allows you to take your handheld world onto the big screen, trade pokemon on-line, take pokemon you find on your DS into the WiiU game.... this alone would sell more units and its something I have though of in seconds. Nintendo need to pull their finger out OR give up on consoles and stick with the handheld industry.

@Blindlana. The developer of Mario Strikers, Punch Out and LM2 has put out a tweet telling people to watch the direct. The japnese developers only do this if they have a game in the direct. There was also tweets from developers of Smash Bros, X and Bayonetta 2. This direct will be big, just like last years.
MrPenguinKnight 10 months ago
Few things Paul. 1st: Nintendo do try to bring new ideas into their games, hell they are one of the few that actually do. 2nd: Nintendo have said that they are working on the Handhend/Home Console interactivity. 3rd: Gamefreak own a majority stake in Pokemon franchise & they need to give the go ahead for a console Pokemon game & sadly I don't see a traditional Pokemon game for a Home Console anytime soon, the best thing we can hope for it a sequel the Pokemon XD

OK, you defend Nintendo, the rest of the gaming community see how much they are failing over the last 3 generations of consoles. Where were Nintendo at E3? The WiiU came out in 2012, name me 5 strong console selling games that we simply cannot do without? you cant, because they don't have anything. All Nintendo do is throw out the odd next gen zelda picture to keep people like us hanging around. Maybe they should have worked on the interactivity back in 2010 before they released the machine. Gamefreak will be making plenty of money out of any Pokemon title so are you saying that they are holding Nintendo back? I doubt it. Look lets face it..... Nintendo need to step up and improve, and quick, they are miles behind their competitors. Believe me, I want them to do well, I have a WiiU collecting dust at home.
paulaw 10 months ago
The thing I struggle to understand, as a WiiU owner, is how can anyone else who owns the console not be seriously disappointed with the lack of movement from Nintendo? A huge concern at the moment is that Watch_Dogs might end up being cancelled all together, im not bothered by this as I will be getting it on the PS4 but if you think about it... developers have to work extra on the WiiU games to integrate the controller - they will look at the percentage of gamers that are WiiU only and question if its worth the time!
paulaw 10 months ago
1: Nintendo were at E3, they just didn't have a conference. 2: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, Rayman Legends, Splinter Cell Blacklist, ZombiU, Lego City, that enough for you? 3: Gamefreak don't want traditional Pokemon games on home consoles since they would need to develop it themselves & they think it will take away from the Handheld side. 4: They aren't competing with Microsoft & Sony. 5: Won't need to work extra since most Devs have jumped on that "Second Screen experience" like Smartglass & Vita, even though they were complaining about it when the Wii U was first released
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I own a WiiU and i think it sucks.
JoeToots 10 months ago
No one cares what you think Toots
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
your mum does ;) (sorry i have to get childish)
JoeToots 10 months ago
Loli you are clearly a huge Nintendo fan and that's fine but No, its not enough. Dont try telling me that games like Splinter Cell, a Zelda HD remake and Wonderful 101 are console sellers we all need to have! they aint, they are OK games but I would expect any console that's into its 2nd year to have a much stronger catalogue of games. Exactly they didn't have a conference at E3 because they have NOTHING!!I don't really have much to prove here, I am talking about hard facts that you clearly don't like to hear, this machine needs to improve, and it need to do it QUICK. I am fortunate that I am in the position to own more than one console but if I had chosen the WiiU over anything else, I would be hugely disappointed. I love your 4th comment about not competing with Sony and Microsoft, that's one thing you got right - they simply CANNOT compete. Without the handhelds they would been doomed. I am speaking for thousands of WiiU owners who expect more, we expect more / better games and hopefully tonight will give us something decent to look forward to but....I doubt it.
paulaw 10 months ago
paulaw is right Nox just accept you're wrong.
JoeToots 10 months ago
I only said " Is that enough" cos you only asked me to name 5 & I'm not saying the console doesn't need to improve, it quite clearly does. Also that didn't have conference cos it would have been a waste to sick all those resources into having one only to be overshadowed by the Xbone/PS4 reveal.
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Oh & if I only had my Wii U and no 3DS, PS3 or PC that could run games then I would be disappointed as well
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Nox you're failing hard here.
JoeToots 10 months ago
I'm not trying to "Win" I'm just having a discussion
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
yes but you look stupid.
JoeToots 10 months ago
@paulaw - "see how much they are failing over the last 3 generations of consoles" - sorry but the Wii beat both 360 and PS3 last gen - where were you?
Peeph 10 months ago
Life would be boring if you never acted stupid every once & a while
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I think he was talking about the games front not the sales. The Wii did have a bunch of system sellers but not as much and the 360 & no where no as much as the PS3 had/has
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Meh, I think the Wii U is fine, there's plenty of great games you can't play on anything else, it's my main console and I'm not disappointed. It doesn't have great third party support, but it's no big deal really, most multip[latform games are generic dross anyway.
Gloria 10 months ago
wiiU sucks.
JoeToots 10 months ago
@joe toots - think I'm gonna quote you for my reply - “ your mum does ;) (sorry i have to get childish) ” Joe Toots 36 minutes ago

Ha!
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
wii-u army unite!
JoeToots 10 months ago
I have loved nintendo since the beginning with the nes and gort every console up to wiiu, and will always love it but paul is right the wiiu was very disappointing, im sorry to say because nintendo is amazing, but its not really moving at all i wish it was but its not just have to deal with it that nintedo is dieing, they would off if it wasn't for the hardcore fans thats just keeping it alive, they really have to do something special before its too late r.i.p nintendo lol
darren 10 months ago
Well if Mario Strikers is announced and Bayonetta 2 gets a release date I will be happy
Bindiana 10 months ago
I don't even know why i call it a wii-u i should just call it my netflix machine
JoeToots 10 months ago
If im honest if they announced mario strikers i'd be happy.
JoeToots 10 months ago
im loyal to zelda i just got the zelda 3ds xl and game but unless they bring out a worthy zelda game to buy it then and not a old one with a sharper look, i may get the zelda wii u but thats a maydo, i did have a wiiu but was so disappointed in it i wasn't played it so i gave it to a god friend who would get more use out off it than i would and with the ps3 ps4 vita 3ds no point in having it at the moment
darren 10 months ago
the 360 dont come out off the box no more and the xb1 lol dont make me laugh i will be getting a wii u before i get that pile of steaming console waste, im sorry to all xbox fanboys or any type off fans but its just my opinion, xbox never sucked so much as it does now, looks whos on top playstation and why because its that much better than the rest, but i n saying that i read that the 3ds sold more than any other next gen console didn't it
darren 10 months ago
Calm down
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
U mad?
JoeToots 10 months ago
Nintendo is dieing? ROFL, I've heard that before.
Gloria 10 months ago
We're all slowly dieing to be fair.
JoeToots 10 months ago
Nintendo are slowly dying, everyone here is slowly dying, hell everyone in the world is slowly dying
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
if nintendo does another console please dont let it be another wii, lets hope they can catch up a bit because it will either kill them or save them, i just hope xbox will just die already
darren 10 months ago
i will be getting another wii but only after the new exciting ps4 games, but cant really say the same for the wii u tho sounds good but not that exciting, probably get it next year
darren 10 months ago
^fanboy
JoeToots 10 months ago
The console isn't the problem, it's the third party developers that are the problem, they are the ones who need sorting out, not Nintendo.
Gloria 10 months ago
nope not me i have a wii, 3ds xl, xbox original, xbox 360, a gamecube, i do like and love others thats not playstation, but i cant hide from the fact that playstation is better its not just my opinion, its a fact
darren 10 months ago
yes gloria it is the 3rd party thats the problem not nintendo
darren 10 months ago
Saying "not just my opinion, its a fact" is a common Fanboy quote
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
no not really but good try tho
darren 10 months ago
Like me saying that it is a fact that the Gamecube was the best console ever and the people that didn't buy it should burn in the fiery pits of hell
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
They should though ;)
Gloria 10 months ago
That is my Opinion
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
ok if im a fanboy then im a fanboy off nintendo becaause i love them, a fanboy off xbox because i love the 1st 2 consoles and a fanboy off playstation because its awesome
darren 10 months ago
I didn't buy it... I should burn in the fiery pits of hell... I guess if its a fact its a fact :)
RTLF 10 months ago
Is it too late to buy a gamecube and save my soul?
RTLF 10 months ago
I'm just saying don't go around saying stuff is a fact. Everyone shits the same
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
You are too late. Get ready for the Devils lube
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
.........oh boy
RTLF 10 months ago
the best console ever in my opinion is the n64, im not saying its a fact because i think it is, its just is if im wrong i am sorry i got it wrong my god you people take it way to seriously lol who cares they are just machines
darren 10 months ago
darren its all a bit of banter, if its any consolation I agree with 90% of what you say
RTLF 10 months ago
The best console ever is anything i can play battlefield on.
JoeToots 10 months ago
We are all just machines.
Gloria 10 months ago
i like playstation so i got a ps4 anybody else just do what thy like it makes no differents to me, was j ust agreeing with paul now hes gone and im here all alone with these nintendo "fanboys" lol what a crappy term
darren 10 months ago
You haven't been hare long have you Darren? We are all messing with you. BTW ....... DREAMCAST 2 IS THE BEST CONSOLE EVER & I WILL KNOCK ANYONE OUT WHO SAYS OTHERWISE!
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
ooh! Gamecube's for £20 on ebay... maybe its not too late... Nox/Gloria, Top 5 most essential games to get for Gamecube?
RTLF 10 months ago
The Gizmondo beats Dreamcast 2 all day Nox
Bindiana 10 months ago
Smash Bros, Eternal Darkness, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (Although it is expensive to get) Paper Mario & the Thousand Year Door (Same) Starfox Adventures
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Those are the ones from the top of my head. I'm sure Gloria could add to it
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I haven't gone Darren its just all becoming a little.....crazy? I am also at work! Everyone will have their own opinions on what is best. If I was to pick my best all time console I would go with the PlayStation. At the time it was mind blowing, great games, great graphics and I felt it changed the gaming world at the time. If I had my way all of the consoles would be a success and I would have them all! I own a WiiU, high spec PC and a PS4 so I can speak from my experience and say that the WiiU is failing, it needs to step up and prove itself against the big boys! Hardcore Nintendo fans will not want to criticise the WiiU...... I just cant understand how anyone who owns one can say its doing great.... its not. its a mess, its got a couple of decent games and lacks in many areas. They need to do something about it and hopefully they will.
paulaw 10 months ago
Double Dash, Sunshine, Metroid Prime, F-Zero GX are all great too ;)
Gloria 10 months ago
Killer 7, timesplitters 2, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, metroid prime and Super Mario Sunshine
JoeToots 10 months ago
Surprised you didnt say Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia Nox very disappointed haha
Bindiana 10 months ago
It isn't doing great, the console is in trouble as it stands right now but no way in hell are they "Nintendoomed
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
and obviously Super Mario Strikers
JoeToots 10 months ago
They would be without the handhelds - as I said before. Forget the Gamecube, that's the past, they aint making money from that any more. The WiiU is costing them. Give it a few years, Nintendo will give up on consoles.
paulaw 10 months ago
did anyone ever play Viewtiful Joe?
JoeToots 10 months ago
Skies of Arcadia is even more expensive than Path of Radiance to get & Tales of Symphoniais released on the PS3 soon. How did I miss Mario Sunshine? It is one of my favorite games ever
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Oh all the Viewtiful Joe games are must plays as well
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Viewtiful Joe was ace, wish they'd bring him back.
Gloria 10 months ago
Ah S*** the bed! the games are more expensive than the console! :'-(
RTLF 10 months ago
if nintendo brings out a better connsole than the wii, then it may become my favourite again, even more than the ps4 i have a weekness for nintendo
darren 10 months ago
If Nintendo give up then the whole games industry will fold.
Gloria 10 months ago
Although the Gamecube versions are a bit more to get. I also loved Gladius
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I really want to get skies of arcadia again but it is really expensive, along with what everyone else has mentioned for the gamecube there is also Phantasy Star online the offline still works and is pretty fun on co-op. If you enjoyed the old resident evil games then Resident Evil 0 is pretty good. Remember the Wii can still play gamecube games although it does not look as good as the gamecube console wise the games still play fine.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
ok do we all agree that the wii isn't as good as we hoped it would be lets move on to something else
darren 10 months ago
Seriously though, out of all the one's which have been mentioned which would be your top 5?
RTLF 10 months ago
Gedt Resident Evil 0 Archives & the Metrioid Prime Trilogy for the Wii
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
What Genre do you like most?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Zombieflamingo, not a big fan of the wii controller if I'm honest, and feeling like snapping up some retro kit...
RTLF 10 months ago
Get a Wavebird
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
No darren, nobody is moving on.
Gloria 10 months ago
I like all genre's, I just wanna know what everyone's personal selections would be if they could only choose 5? Obviously not gonna be able to pick up many games at the prices they are going for
RTLF 10 months ago
1. Phantasy Star Online. 2. Eternal Darkness. 3.Skies of Arcadia. 4. Lost kingdoms 5. Pokemon Coliseum. The gamecube controller works on the Wii, it plugs into the top with the memory cards.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Darren this is a Thread about Nintendo, course we are going to talk about Nintendo
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
On topic though I hope we get to see more about X though as what I have seen so far interests me.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
My top 5 would be Paper Mario, Smash Bros, Eternal Darkness, Mario Sunshine & Pokemon Gale of Darkness XD
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Also the Resident Evil remake was really good as well. Never played Gale of Darkness I assume it was just like the other one?
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Would love to see more of the new Xeno & Fire Emblem X Megaten
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Is that a smiley at the end there or is the game actually called "XD" ?
RTLF 10 months ago
Gale of Darkness is a lot better than Coliseum but yes they are both the same gameplay style
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness is the official name I think
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
don't answer that, just kidding ;)
RTLF 10 months ago
my favourite games are zelda ocarina off time, the last of us, uncharted 2, final fantasy x not sure if i have another 1 i dont put it in my favourite games off all time just because its good and i like it it has to have the feel like zelda does and the last of us, 2 souls is coming close just not sure yet
darren 10 months ago
Its the actual name. I enjoyed coliseum so I might pick up Gale of Darkness as some point, I had the gamecube set up playing PSO at the weekend on split screen still loads of fun and the controllers are still surprisingly comfy.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Ok thx for that, surprised Gloria didn't pitch in with hers, maybe she went for a cuppa. Will let you know when my soul has avoided a fiery fate and what I went for in the end. p.s. isn't there a mario kart worth getting for the gamecube?
RTLF 10 months ago
Might just be me but I didn't really enjoy the Mario Kart on the gamecube. Think it was called double dash.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Yea thats the one, found it on ebay... ok probably better to avoid then. Would you say it'd also be better to avoid phantasy star online since i have no-one to play it with?
RTLF 10 months ago
any ps4 gamers here with tomb raider
darren 10 months ago
a bit off topic but yea
RTLF 10 months ago
Probably it has a sort of single player story but the main fun is co-op with friends so unless you could get it for really cheap I would avoid it.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
sound advice, thanks
RTLF 10 months ago
just looking for a bit of trophy boosting on the more troublesome online trophies
darren 10 months ago
Its all right if you fancy a really good single player game I would go for Eternal Darkness it has multiple endings as well for replay.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Could help you with that, I have them all(Online one's) apart from True Commitment and shopaholic. Easy to boost them with help, just add me, PSN ID is same as my name on here
RTLF 10 months ago
ok thanks we can tomorrow or saturday if you want
darren 10 months ago
whoops forgot to leave a message but i just sent it
darren 10 months ago
Definitely eyeing up Eternal Darkness, around £10 on ebay... not bad considering smash bros is around the £30 mark... Fire Emblem just takes the biscuit, mostly around the £100 mark o_O
RTLF 10 months ago
It's the Gamecube Phantasy Star the same as the one on the 360?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
@darren, yea sure just gimme a shout when you see me online
RTLF 10 months ago
I bought my Gamecube with Fire Emblem for around £45 a few years back
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I would say get FE: Path of Radiance for the Wii as well but prices for that jamp up around to time Awakening was released
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Sorry, the Wii game is Radiant Dawn (One of my top games of all time)
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Hey I'll buy them off you for £50 ;)
RTLF 10 months ago
What? Path of Radiance & my Gamecube?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Double Dash was great, used to play it online with the broadband adaptor and the warp pipe software.
Gloria 10 months ago
Yea that happens, shame really... definitely gonna get the console though as never got round to actually trying it and heard/hear good things. Will then get the good games that are still cheap and keep my ear to the ground to find bargains on the others
RTLF 10 months ago
Yea of course, you said you got them for £45... So thats a profit, come on, Deal or no Deal? :D
RTLF 10 months ago
Are you joking? I can't tell if you are joking. Also what about P&P?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Btw the game has no Manual (Which I never knew when I bought it)
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Well I'm serious of course but jokingly as I don't believe you'll sell it
RTLF 10 months ago
@Gloria, guessing the online community will be dead now though eh? :)
RTLF 10 months ago
@Nox gotta go now, but you can catch me on psn
RTLF 10 months ago
Yes, I expect the online community would be non existent now, wasn't exactly big back then really, was fun though, and Double Dash is great for local multiplayer. I don't know why it gets so much hate, it's one of my favourite Mario Karts, just glad some of the tracks are playable on the Wii and 3DS games. and no doubt MK8 too.
Gloria 10 months ago
@Nox no the gamecube one was different from the 360 one, it was better in my opinion although the 360 one had a better single player story though unfortunately the servers are not up anymore and there is no offline co-op. I did want to try the PSP version but never had one and by the time I bought the vita it had been removed from the store.
