Happy early Valentine's Day, Pipeliners!

 

Thanks to Twitter, I was just made aware of a Nintendo Direct airing tomorrow at 6AM PST. That's what, 9AM Eastern Time? (which we all know is the superior time zone hehehe)

 

Anywho, I thought we might discuss what's going to go on in tomorrow's Nintendo Direct. After the past few bits of news that Nintendo has released, I'm getting pretty excited to hear any new news from Nintendo. Especially if it is Pokemon or Zelda related. Or anything for 3DS.

 

According to @MyNintendoNews on Twitter, the North America Nintendo Direct tomorrow will feature news from the 3DS AND the Wii U. The European Nintendo Direct will only feature 3DS.

 

Since I am technically in class right now and haven't yet had the time to go research this anymore, does anyone have anything to share?

 

Personally, I'm hoping for a release date for Windwaker HD or something awesome for the 3DS. As well as some more news about Pokemon X and Y.

If there's not a New Leaf release date, I'm going to become violent.

I've contacted my super secret sources, and there appears to be less rumors for this one then the last one. I suspect it's more details on previous games, possibly a definite release date for Wonderful 101. Also, I've heard a little bit about a mention for Animal Crossing. Definitely nothing in the way of release dates though.

 

Also, expect some third party news.

Yeah, it's probably nothing too huge. Especially considering the last two ND's were pretty big. I'm hoping, though, that this one will give some release dates for several games.

It happened already, right? Did anybody watch this? 

 

Apparently Nintendo has named 2013 The Year of Luigi, with releases of lots of Luigi games. Including Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Lario & Luigi: Dream Team, New Super Luigi U, and Fore!.

 

Right now, my favorite bit of news is about Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D! YES. Donkey Kong Country on the 3DS. I have been made a happy happy person. 

 

A full rundown of news from this Nintendo Direct can be found here at My Nintendo News.

Donkey Kong Country 3D = so dumb. Why not a whole new game? Or at the very least add some twists to it like Donkey Kong Land did. I really hope that isn't what Retro is working on so secretively.

 

Everything else is kind of cool. I'm especially happy with the more in-depth look with Luigi's Mansion, it still seems they removed the character ghosts. But they added boss ghosts, a bit more wider array or minion ghosts, and also added character to the mansions themselves.

 

I'm definitely getting Mario Golf. I actually played the GC one a lot!

 

Also, Dillion for Smash Bros 4 is becoming more likely.

I guess that was more them being kind of lazy and rather than work on a new DK game, re-release one for another console. Do you realize how many times Donkey Kong Country has been done and re-done? Don't get me wrong, I still wouldn't mind having this.

 

BUT. It has been a long time since they've done too much with Donkey Kong. It needs a new title. Or at the very least a re-make of Donkey Kong 64 for the 3DS instead. I've never played Donkey Kong Country Returns, but DK64 and DKC were both awesome games.

To be honest I would've way more preferred a DK64 remake. It's waaaay too early for DKC Returns to make it's return. They could've even remade the original DKC into 3D.

 

I think the only benefit of this is that they can possibly add more levels, plus they will probably more DLC (not sure if benefit or shameless attempt at getting money).

Yes, I as well would have rather seen a DK64 remake. That was one of the best games on the N64, in my opinion. I am surprised it has not been re-made yet.

Remade my foot, I am more surprised that they have not added DK64 to the virtual console service in any form Wii, 3DS, or I will be surprised if it finally shows up on the Wii U's Virtual Console service.

 

As for Mario and Luigi Dream Team and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon I can't wait to get my hands on those games for my 3DS. Wii U wise it will be all about Outset Island and Wind Waker HD for me on that front. Wii Street U would be better if the images were updated to a more recent look on the world.

I have not played Luigi's Mansion in forever. I actually look forward to getting to play Dark Moon. I hope there will be a demo in the eShop.

I'd be happier if the demo is free. If they have one later that is.

Your sources were wrong and I'm so glad. :'D Animal Crossing's coming out June 9th.

My sources sometimes feed my false information. Typical Nintendo employees.

You with your "Nintendo employees" and Mage with his roommate who can playtest the latest Pokemon game long before it is released.

 

I'm still very suspicious of it all. </3
