Great, overlapping presentations. Just what we need. But I thought Japan's was an hour before Europe's?

It's gonna have release dates on Luigi's Mansion, Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem plus some Details, Info on Pokemon Black and White 2, and about the Kirby Disc and maybe some other games localized.

12AM? I normally wake up early in the morning, so I might just wait till the morning to see the news.

At midnight?! Wow. Yeah I may wait until tomorrow morning this time. Hoping for more surprises then E3 had. I think Wii is about done (except for Epic Mickey 2 for me), so I guess the 3DS is what I want to keep an eye on this time.

I'm staying up for it as i already usually stay up till 11:30pm anyways. I think it'll be worth it seeing that E3 showed games we had already seen besides Castlevania. I'm watching it on my Kindle Fire while in bed. :)

Honestly, I would stay up for a Wii U price and date announcement, no matter what the time, but I'm not staying up for DS, 3DS and Wii games. Tomorrow morning I'll read a summary and then decide if it's worth watching. My son is dieing for a Pokemon B/W 2 date but even if they do announce it tonight he'll probably just see it on the official Pokemon website in the morning.

I may be wrong, but I'm kind of expecting a fairly big announcement since the different Nintendo headquarters are coordinating announcements.

Crossing my fingers for Animal Crossing! Love these Direct Videos. Besides Pokemon, Last Story and Kirby for DS and Wii, I wonder what other games will be shown.

I often wonder if Nintendo's simply trying to wean themselves off of e3.
They have been saying that they're trying to avoid Sony and Microsoft's competitive presentations... so having shows before e3 and after e3 would kind of make it like that. Nintendo presentations for those interested in just Nintendo.

I'm really hoping they make up for E3 tonight, but I'm mostly expecting to just reconfirm FE13 and then not much else. Monster Hunter would be AWESOME though.

Maybe they'll annouce firm release dates for Luigi's Mansion and Paper Mario, but I hoped they would tell the Wii U launch date and price. That must be saved for a later conference or direct. I'll go to bed and find out what happened tomorrow morning.

Since there will be no WiiU news, I couldn't care any less about this nintendo direct. Nintendo just loves to torture us...

They better announce Pandora's Tower and Fatal Frame 2 Wii Edition. And some Fire Emblem Awakening info would be much appreciated.

12...AM.They must be joking. Even though I'm on summer break now I don't want to watch it that late. You guys DO know that the stream can be watched after the initial showing. So you don't need to force yourselves to stay up late If you have a job.

1 AM!? Arg. That hour just to match the other ones? Insanity, though considering the amount of heat today, I may be up that late anyways waiting for things to cool off a bit

@Golden-Darkness
I have a job but i'm still staying up to watch. I'm feeling some news on Animal Crossing 3DS, maybe even a new game on Metroid...that there would be worth it. :)

My guess is we'll probably just get release dates, NOA doesn't ever do anything too special.
