I think after the direct we will get either a bayonetta 2 demo or bayonetta 1 on the eshop. I don't think its a simple coincidence that the direct is airing the same day as the north american eshop update.

If there would be a demo, it must to be very good in order to prevent what happened with W101.

I think it is just a coincidence. They've added demos and games before on any other day

The wonderful 101 is a great game, I really like it. Did the demo do it damage, or do people assume it did?

The demo for W101 gave a very wrong idea of what the game was like, you got thrown in the pool without knowing how to swim with hardly any explanation. It wasn't till I got the game that I really could enjoy it and that the demo made sense.

Everything can change, but I'm never changing who I am

I personally think the demo of W101 was good. It was easier than the main game because it started you off with a couple of Unite Morphs that were very handy. I think it sold poorly because it was about as niche a game as you could get and it decided to launch almost directly against Pikmin 3, not to mention that GTAV was the in thing at that time.

I only posted this to get my avatar as the forum's thumbnail.

I hope there is at least one cool surprise in the ND. Not a boring character reveal. I mean a surprise like some new content on the eShop or some footage of something we're not expecting.

The Direct is about Bayonetta, it's going to be news on that game...lol

Since it's a Bayonetta-specific direct any surprise at the end would have to be Bayonetta-related. That leaves two possibilites:

1. A demo to be released on eShop after the direct concludes
2. Bayonetta revealed for Smash Bros.

One has a far higher chance than the other but I wouldn't bet on either.

Agreed. The demo almost made me cancel my preorder. I usually am fine with getting tossed into the thick of things but it was rather confusing at first. Actual game is well...Wonderful.

Also I'm not expecting big reveals on this direct. I expect this is just the last marketing push so that people know to buy it. Still can't wait to watch it though.

Same thing here. we haven't had one in ages it seems. Most information they cover in "game specific" directs we already know, and it doesn't help that this direct features a game I'm not really into.

Well clearly that's your fault for not wanting fun.

But seriously, I totally get it. Between Tomodachi Life going from nothing to sales 2 months before release and the Mario Kart one, these are already way more effective.

also good because Nintendo needed to stop telling us about games we won't get for a long time or are on the auto-win platform known as 3DS between awkwardly presented info of that game we already know about

The only issue I have is that stuff like Fantasy Life could a 10 minute mini direct also.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Hoping they'll at LEAST announce the New 3DS for us, the wait for a release date is killing me. Was so ready to buy a normal XL, too. lol

It isn't a general direct though.

I also agree, the demo for W101 was way too confusing so in the end I went for Mario & Sonic Olympics as my free game with Mario Kart 8. Regretting that choice as I wasn't interested in the normal Olympic events but rather only the silly ones like snowboarding on Mushroom Bridge from Double Dash so if there's another free game chance or I find it at a good price after the middle of September I'll be sure to get W101.

So? Sometimes Nintendo may make an off-topic announcement here and there, like...they could show off the system or something before getting to the game.
