So, Wii U Direct was quite a show from Iwata-san, wasn't it? While there's a tendency for gamers of all types to always want more, we feel confident in saying that Nintendo delivered plenty of announcements and news to intrigue and excite the majority. There were some genuine surprises in there, as well as big announcements that had been long rumoured.

As you've no doubt seen, we've endeavoured to cover every story that's come out of the broadcast, and will continue to do so. In terms of our reaction to it and features content, that'll follow tomorrow and beyond; there's a lot to digest, covering a variety of facets of Wii U, and we want to gather our thoughts before we start writing in greater detail. It's not like we're short of news to enjoy for today, in any case.

An important thing for us, meanwhile, is to know what you think. This was a blockbuster Nintendo Direct that went for some serious headlines, and we want to know what you thought about it. We've included a few polls and the full presentation below, and we'd love to read your opinions on today's broadcast bonanza in the comments section. There sure is a lot to talk about.
