It was kinda "meh" imo

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Two words spring to mind for me "very disappointing" just none of the games I wanted to hear about were mentioned, Mario U (3D), Mario Kart U, Bayonetta 2, Yarn Yoshi etc.

Also still not a single thing said about GameCube games coming to VC.

Finally while the 3DS is getting a brand new Mario Golf, the Wii U gets a crappy Winter Sports game, very poor.

This is my honest opinion, sorry!

Well.... I guess it means they're not showing this stuff at E3. That's something right?

No need to be sorry it's your opinion I don't mind I was only really happy about pikmin 3 because I had no release date yet I preordered it last month and new super luigi u not because it was that exciting but it's better then nothing because june is going to be a very dry month for games on the wii u just like this month and last month has been I was most excited about the sega and Nintendo partnership because of the possibilities I wanna think more then just a sonic partnership hopefully sega brings Nintendo there other great titles!

It was okay. Had less content that I was expecting, but mostly covered all the Wii U games I thought they'd talk about.

That's what happens when you get your expectations too high. Again, they're saving all the big juicy stuff for E3, which is why this particular Direct was rather lackluster.

As for me, I got tons of Pikmin 3 eye candy to oogle at, so I'm satisfied. Sucks that we Americans get it last though. :p

Biggest Pikmin fan on NL!

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.

Well this direct was just a confirmation of release dates for the summer games which I expected. They will leave the big Wii-U announcements for Nintendo Direct nearer to E3.

I'm definitely buying the boxed edition of Luigi U. Looks awesome. :D

Was expecting some Wonderful 101 footage. Was not expecting any announcements (exclusive Sonic!), so that was a nice surprise.

Yeah it's only 8 days later but that's a lot! when you think about it because pikmin 3 is the only real new game that's coming out and it's still 2 month away! but USA normally get games first so it was just nice that for once Australia and Europe got it before them not that it matters to much but as I said it kind of does an extra 8 days feels like an extra month when you anticipate this game so much and no new games are being released but pikmin 3!

It was what I expected; nothing major, but still some good news. I like that Nintendo will help Sega with the next Sonic game, New Super Luigi U getting a retail version and Nabbit being playable, and E3 demos being playable in select Best Buy stores.

Yeah it does look pretty cool I think I'll just get the downloadable content I mean I already have new super Mario bros u and you have to wait an extra month for a hard copy and I'm a very impatient person.

Japan got Yakuza 1 & 2 HD collection for Wii-U. :(

Untitled

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD will bundle the first two games in the open-world crime series for Wii U, it was just announced on the Japanese stream of today's Nintendo Direct press conference.

A trailer for the game shown on the stream showcased some of the upscaled graphics players can expect from the bundle, as well as some of the Wii U-exclusive elements for the platform. Players will be able to monitor their character's status, and navigate through the game's complex streets using a map on the Wii U GamePad.

To be fair, maybe I was slightly harsh, I will agree with you that the SEGA partnership is interesting and certainly has "potential"

But, other than that, the Luigi game is just "OK" nothing more, and for me that was about it, I was probably expecting to much hence why I found it all a bit MEH!

Would have at least liked them to announce GameCube for the VC, that would have been something, but still no news in that area at all which I find very frustrating.

So you read the announcements for the Nintendo Direct, but decided to not read the part about "we'll be discussing Spring / Summer titles"?
