Nintendo Direct: Watch The Wii U Direct Presentation Live

Today's Nintendo Direct presentation has a special title which should leave no doubt as to what the subject matter is going to be.

"Wii U Direct" is going to be focused on new developments for Nintendo's newest home console, and will be hosted by Satoru Iwata himself.

Tune in at 2PM GMT / 9AM EST to watch the presentation. We'll be live-blogging events as usual.

Tom: While VC and a couple of eShop games are my realistic expectations, I'd love Bayonetta 2-style teases of Holiday 2013's big hitters. Mario Kart seems likely this year, and possibly Retro's latest. I don't think Ninty will do that, but I like to dream.

13:42

Ant: someone just said Wind Waker HD, that's optimistic - but would be awesome!

13:38

Ant: wondering what we have in store today, should be a good one I think! Not expecting to many game reveals though - probably a mention of Resident Evil Revelations - hopefully something on what is happening with VC on Wii U. Excited.

13:23

Not long now! What are you expecting to see? Wii U Virtual Console, perhaps?
