Yeah, that's Nintendo's general E3 website, not their Direct one.

I expect Sony to steal the show.

All I want out of the PS4 Conference is more inFamos Second Son footage and price.

W101 wasnt worth it, but making a big deal of Batman was ? Wtf.

If anything I find it pleasantly surprising that Nintendo put that game among the silhouettes as opposed to whatever else they could plug for other games. I hope Nintendo can keep pushing the title so it can truly become that new quality IP they could benefit from. The game looks fantastic.

The story was Batman was a last minute thing due to Aliens being pulled. Maybe Nintendo at that point realized Aliens was a scam

That makes a lot of sense, actually, since this isn't their Direct site, just their E3 one. I can definitely see the new 3D Mario, NSLU, Pikmin 3, M&L4, TWWHD and TW101 being playable on the show floor. Wouldn't be surprised if these are also the titles that will have playable demos at participating Best Buy locations.

I think they could easily edit the end and front part of the video within 12 hours. Add a surprise or something for reaction.

I'm looking forward to it, but I agree with some: PLEASE NO MORE PIKMAN FOOTAGE! We've seen enough! I wouldn't mind if they show no more Wonderful 101 as well. Both games are very close to release. Gotta give more footage on games we've never seen before. More X footage or Smash Bros!

Hehe, people posting about an hour being short. Nintendo's pressers were always pretty short, around 60-70 minutes long. The longest one I can remember was about 75 minutes, when they revealed the3DS.

But what are you saying? That they won't talk about Pikmin/W101 or that they won't talk about 3DS games?

If it's the former, I think there is a very small chance they don't dedicate time to Pikmin 3/W101.

As long as Nintendo shows me new 3d Mario, Smash Bros, Mario kart, and whatever retro is working on, then I am happy. And if I am remembering correctly, I think all of those besides retro have been confirmed. Also, I'm in the camp hoping that retro is working on a new IP.

Yeah, they've almost always been close to 50 minutes or so.

Plus given that this is going to be a Nintendo Direct instead of an E3 presser, I'm hoping that they cut the fat and forego the parts of E3 where they have charts and graphs with spin about their sales and stuff and just focus on the game presentations.

Choo Choo... I guess.

Both have multiplayer modes that haven't been particularly detailed yet, so I'm guessing that's what the focus will be on when they're shown off.

They have no reason to spend much time on charts and shit since the people interested in that stuff are getting their own conference.

It wasn't really 25 minutes was it? No way.

I hope they spend a good amount of time on The Wonderful 101 since in the Summer/Fall Direct all it got was a title and a release date. Maybe as part of a Platinum Direct with it, some Bayonetta 2, and Viewtiful Joe 3.

I CAN DREAM CAN'T I

also 1(01), 2, 3 it's so obvious


Otherwise, I expect what we know, Retro doing something, no EBA because they hate me, and a real Nintendo Land Theme Park after last year's disappointment.

Pretty sure that was part of the entire reason why they wanted to splinter the conferences, so they could focus on one subject and let people watch what they wanted to watch, so this Direct ought to be exclusively about games and software.

Let's be honest, we're probably going to see a few things on the presser that we probably aren't going to be excited about anyway (Wii Fit U and Wii Party U for one), but I can see them dedicating five minutes on average for one title and give the more in-depth treatment for the journalist press show. I doubt Nintendo wouldn't be aware enough about their public reception to the point that they'd splinter the conferences, but not trim the fat while they're at it.

Right? Lighten up folks, jeez.

Are Nintendo really going to put silhouettes from unannounced/revealed games on their teaser site? Is one whole hour really not enough time to show a shit-ton of new stuff? Lets not forget that this is a Direct, not a live stage presentation which is 30% Applause/Awkward Silences/People walking on and off stage. An hour long of just showing future games (ie post summer releases) is fucking plenty.

There is no teasing with their fans. Every single screenshot or trailer they leak, or Iwata's words for that matter, are scrutinized and speculated to no degree. No matter what silhouette teaser they show us, we will figure it out. Unless it's some brand new franchise or obscure plant life on zebes.

That's why a Samus or Starfox tease would sort of blow it.

I think it's more about the fact that people know what's going to fill a lot of those slots, whereas typically its relatively unknown what will be shown.
I personally am excited for this direct, whether its filled with previously seen games or not, it should still be good.
