I didn't know if someone was going to make a forum about this, and I didn't see an NL article on it, so I thought I'd post some of the news from the Japanese Nintendo Direct. In Japan we got a decent one.

-Dragon Quest X
-Zero 2(Fatal Frame2) Wii edition
-Kirby Anniversary Collection, also an explanation on Kirby goods for the Club Nintendo, with added bonuses for members who register Kirby games.
-Pokemon Black 2/White 2
-Smash Brothers WiiU and 3DS with Namco members, also mentioning messages from Sakurai and other crew on the Nintendo website
-Culdcept, a turn based board-game style RPG
-Pocket Soccer League, with online support and ranking posts for players teams
-Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers an RPG from Atlus
-Lost Heroes from Namco, a cross-over RPG with Ultra-man, Kamen Raider and Gundun characters
-Sengoku Musou Chronicle 2nd
-AKB48+Me a 3DS music game featuring (extremely) popular group AKB48
-Ex-Troopers, a cel-shaded action game similar to Sin and Punishment, from Capcom
-Project X (pronounced cross) Zone, the now infamous tile RPG game from Namco, Sega, and Capcom, with an explanation on the battles
-Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, a fantasy RPG from Square-Enix. The demo is on the e-shop in Japan right now. The music and voice acting sounds great.
-New Super Mario Bros. 2, with an explanation on the new gold items in the game, and Gold Rush mode, and the ability to share coin high-scores online
-Dr. Kawashima Oni brain training in 5 minutes. (Oni can mean Devil, but also refers to someone doing something very seriously). Had an explanation on "1 back" mode, which tests your working memory.
-Presentation on LL size 3DS, with an explanation on the size differences, and that it will not come with an adapter, but will use the same as 3DS.
-New Artistic taste classroom (I believe its called New art studio in the west?), this game is recommended for the larger 3DS
-Animal Crossing 3DS (とびだす どうぶつの森, like, "coming out-animal forest") With an explanation on the customization of both the inside and outside of the houses
E-Shop titles
-Gyoretsu Nagerupu, a puzzle game where you match colors with same people standing in a procession
-An explanation on the 1 year anniversary of the e-shop with 20% sale.
-Kid Icarus AR card game in 3 volumes, sold from the Nintendo web page
-New download quests for Monster Hunter 3G
-New demos coming for Devil Summoner, Ex-troopers, Sengoku Musou Chronicle 2nd, and Lost Heroes

And also a post-presentation video for Dragon Quest X.

Lots of good stuff coming. :)

Just an extra note. I will be in and out of the apartment this weekend. I know this page looks a little sloppy, so I'll be cleaning it up and adding more details when I can.

@arrmixer Not really. I mean, there's college textbooks, but I rarely keep those around. I don't really study with books, I have a ton of dictionaries, both paper and electronic, and I study with novels, music, television and some online programs, but usually I just practice in conversations.

So...false alarm for us in EU and NA really then?
Seeing as we're not getting a Nintendo direct and the news seems all for Japan.
I hope this isnt going to become a trend - Japan only presentations...

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

It most likely will be a regular thing, these Japan-only presentations, though there will be NA and EU ones as well sometimes.

Anyway, there is not an Aug. 29th Nintendo Direct thread that someone else has made, something much less formal than what I was planning. You can chat about it there.

@Marakuto I always feel bad, because there's all these games that players in the west wish they could play, and when they're available here and I don't play them I feel like its sort of a shame. I've actually never played an Animal Crossing games (we call it 動物の森 Forest of the Animals, I like that title better), or Pokemon, or a lot of these other franchises.

If only we could gift games on 3DS and from other regions at that, then I could give tsuchinoko VVVVVV and he could give me something cool as well
