Satoru Iwata Tweets That Wii U Direct Will Be "A Bit Different"

Wording suggests a look at Nintendo-specific projects
Earlier today we brought you the news that Satoru Iwata is hosting a global Nintendo Direct Broadcast — Wii U Direct — tomorrow at 2PM GMT / 9AM EST. The press release and a subsequent tweet stated that new software and services for the home console would be on the agenda.
Satoru Iwata, for his part, has joined in with a tweet to suggest that the approach will be different this time around; you can see what he said (translated on NeoGaf) below.
This time, the plan is a bit different from a regular Direct, in that I'll be talking about what kind of Wii U titles and services Nintendo is developing.
With recent Nintendo Direct broadcasts focusing on showing upcoming games from various developers — often previously revealed — with release dates or windows to fill out the gaming calendar, this presentation will seemingly focus more on in-house concepts. If Satoru Iwata's tweet can be taken literally, perhaps there's renewed hope of details of major releases — albeit without firm release dates — or maybe we're just being over hopeful.
In any case, be sure to check back here at Nintendo Life to see the broadcast and get the latest news as it happens.
