Now we're seeing a selection of eShop games, some nice titles on the way

Lots of Skylanders action too...

New Batman game will be on Wii U & 3DS, along with ACIV on Wii U

Iwata is talking about his love for 3rd party, but what have they been working on?

It'll also feature the ability to post directly to Miiverse

Art Academy will be available on the Wii U eShop this summer, get creative!

Oh okay, Wii Party U in November and Wii Fit U in December - not too bad

Iwata appreciates your patience!

Wii Fit U also delayed due to "new features", we expected this

Wii Party U going to be delayed slightly... no dates.

(it's another party game, but looks good!)

Now we're watching some action from Wii Party U

And Mario Kart 8 has motocycles once again...

So we have some anit-gravity in Mario Kart 8... OK!

We're blogging live from LE. No, that's not a typo; it's the postcode for Loughborough.

We're hearing rumblings that the Japanese Nintendo Direct is 37 minutes long. Hopefully, that's 20 minutes of games, and 17 minutes of Iwata staring at fruit.

It's fallen eerily silent in the Nintendo Life offices. I think some of us are a little bit nervous. All of us are a little bit excited.

Hi guys, Rory here! I'll be on liveblogging duties during the Direct. My body is partially ready.

*ALERT* One Hour To Go! *ALERT*

There's a high chance we'll find out what Retro Studios have been up to today...

We going to be doing a LIVE video stream from the office after the show, if you want to stick around and ask questions :)

Join us on Nintendo Life for the Nintendo Direct and some chatter!
