Dev

There is a Nintendo Direct tomorrow on December 18! Come here to discuss everything Wii U related on the latest Direct.

Also, I would like for this thread to be the main thread for Wii U Direct news just so there's not a bunch of separate Wii U Direct threads, if that's okay with the mods.

Formely NintyFan.

I'm sure we could see a little more footage of DKC: TF, but I'm hoping we see some new footage for Mario Kart 8 as well. It's been awhile since we've gotten anything new for MK8! It would be nice to get a surprise or two as well, but I'm not expecting anything crazy.

Low expectations, guys, or you will end up being disappointed.

I want a good trailer of DKC featuring Cranky Kong. The VGX footage was pretty dull. Need to see more.

Looking forward to: No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Back

Monolith's X, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, and Bayonetta 2 REALLY needs to be shown.
Then a sneak peak of Shigeru Miyamoto's IP for Wii U would be amazing...

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

It's only focusing on early 2014 releases though. I doubt any of those will be Q1 2014 titles.

I wouldn't expect much more than more DK:TF stuffs, Mario Kart 8 and maybe some talk about the next batch of Wii Sports Club games. At most maybe some improvements to 3DS and Wii U account ties now they have the same NNID. Perhaps some VC improvements and new consoles added on the Wii U side of things.

Much more than that and I think we'd be going too far into the "please lower your expectations" territory.

I imagine they will focus on games like Mario Kart 8, DOnkey Kong, and a few 3DS games. I also imagine that they'll tease a few later games.

OF COURSE the Direct is gonna start off with Donkey Kong. Its inevitable. Its what comes AFTER Donkey Kong that matters.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Games. I think we'll see games. Just a hunch though.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Just FYI there'll be 3DS stuff too.

No doubt they'll cover DK. We'll probably also get new info on MK8, Mario Golf: World tour, NA/EU dates for kirby, probably Yoshi's New Island, and hopefully Bayonetta 2 info. A new game announcement would be nice too.

Well, is just few days for christmas, Nintendo needs to add some heat to this matter.

A release date for Mario Kart would be awesone.

And no, there'll be no Zelda U.

And if there IS a new game announcement tomorrow, it better be for the Wii U. 3DS needs to take a backseat next year.
