HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED.

I'm far too lazy to find all of the stories and write about them here, so I'm stealing this post from Destructoid.

-------------------------------

Not sure if this should be in the Wii U area or if this is fine here but OKAY COMMENCE THREAD.

Tomorrow (1/23) at 2PM GMT, Nintendo will be hosting a Nintendo Direct conference to discuss upcoming Wii U titles (aka not New Leaf).

SO WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO?

I don't have a Wii U, but some of the titles I see may persuade me to trade in the Wii and get a Wii U once tax returns are back.

My biggest influence would definitely be a LoZ title.

The fact that this is happening has me unsure what to think. It would be awesome of Nintendo is starting to announce major first party titles outside of E3 (something happening more and more often; for example, Pokémon X and Y), but I'm hesitant to get too excited because traditionally E3 is where all of the awesome happens.

I'm expecting to see a lot of third party games we already know about, and maybe a surprise (the surprise being an announcement that exciting-upcoming-third-party-game is coming to WiiU in addition to PS3 and Xbox 360).

I really hope the real announcements are about first party games that fans will care about.

There are two things I am convinced we will not see: The Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros.

There are two things I'd like to see. Both seem unlikely, but are more realistic than some others.

1. I want to see Retro Studio's new game
I'd love to see Retro tackle reviving an old franchise (StarTropics is a favorite when this idea comes up) or developing a new franchise. However, right now I think the most likely project is a 2D Metroid game.

Retro Studios has more-or-less defined the Metroid series for the past decade. After that, they switched over and developed the best Donkey Kong game since, well, ever. I think they could take their experiences with Donkey Kong and apply it to Metroid to make the perfect 2D Metroid game.

2. I want an official announcement detailing the Mother republication project.
There are a few theories, but no details on this project other than a couple brief mentions that it exists. I think it's more likely that, whatever it is, it will appear on the 3DS, but I'd love to be surprised. My biggest hope is that this is a full remake of the original Mother.

Makes me wonder as well what they're going to announce at E3. The E3 announcements have still got to be better than the Nintendo Direct ones. IMO, I think they'll save a LoZ announcement for E3.

As long as Mario and/or Zelda is around, Nintendo will stay. But I want to hear an actual new franchise to come out, that would be cool!

There has been a ton of rumors going about with new Wii U titles. Although I doubt that anything new will be announced in this Direct. It's entirely possibly they could. Besides a lot of press sites have been hinting at something by saying "You might want to stay tuned to us, just saying." As if something new will be around. It's all eerie, but exciting.

Also I'm prepared to dodge the table flippers.

I've pretty much learned not to set the bar very high with these Nintendo Direct conferences.

I'd just like to see something that makes me want to buy a Wii U, and that could really be any number of things.

I dunno, Nintendo seems pretty set on convincing us otherwise. After all, the last Nintendo Direct announced the biggest changes to Pokémon ever. They've also used it in the past to make surprise announcements like Xenoblade.

It really looks like Nintendo is planning to do more Nintendo Direct more often to keep us informed and/or excited about Nintendo.

"We know this is a Wii U Nintendo Direct, but we have some good information regard an upcoming Animal Crossing title..."

I like to dream.

I fixed your quote so it applies to me.

Also, I SHOULD BE WATCHING THE CONFERENCE RIGHT NOW BUT I'M NOT

I just updated the first post with all of the announcements.

...

OH MY GOD WIND WAKER HD.

I didn't think this was really something I wanted that badly but looking at those comparisons in the video made me excited in lots of ways and lots of places so I guess I need it really really badly.

Well look at me being completely wrong. Both things I guaranteed wouldn't show we're talked about.

I'm so happy you were wrong, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Also, my wish was granted. I now want a Wii U. All in all, this was a successful conference.

Well we technically didn't hear anything about Smash Brothers other than it needs more time.

But anyway, this Nintendo Direct was actually pretty sweet :) Lots of things to be excited for (especially that Yoshi game <3)

I like how before it, everyone was saying how bad it usually is and that it will be bad like usual. Now everyone seems hyped up about it. :v
