Tune in for an all-new Nintendo Direct right here tomorrow at 6 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET.

We will share information focusing on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS software

launching through spring 2014.

What do you think will be revealed?

Awesome! I'll tune in. :D

Hopefully we get to see some new awesome games and/or release dates! I would love to see more info on X.

Well, there isn't much lined up for 3DS in 2014, so they definitely need to stay on top of that while getting on top of the Wii U.

But, I'm keeping my expectation low so I won't be disappointed:
- Donkey Kong footage
- Mario Kart 8 footage and release schedule
- Maybe some Smash Bros. news, trailer, maybe a character
- Kirby 3DS footage, release date

And probably some other minor announcements. And that's the extent of my expectation. I do hope there is more (e.g X, Bayonetta, etc.) but I'm choosing not to expect that so I don't get disappointed. I'm definitely not expecting anything new. If the Direct turns out as expected, then I expect a better Direct sometime early in 2014 or E3.

The 3DS library is getting ridiculous, so many good games.

This pretty much met my expectation. So it okay and I enjoyed it.

It was a good presentation, there shouldn't be any complaints. I'm yet to buy a Wii U but those videos got me wanting one more than ever now.

if i didn't already have one, it wouldn't have convinced me to get it.

Well Mario Kart looked as fun as ever and I've been dying for the new Smash Bros. To each it's own I guess.

Garbage

So once again we have nothing but rehashes

Dynasty warriors skinned with Link, that's when you know you're hitting the bottom of the barrel

Iwata just keeps right on steering the company into Hell.

look ok for someone that already has the system. but nothing to convince me to buy one, which is their main problem right now.

Was very disappointed with the Smash Bros announcement. The way they did it I thought they where finally going to do what I've wanted them to do with Mario Kart for the longest time and change it to Smash Kart and have characters from all there games in it instead of trying to cram more generic Mario enemy's into karts.

I was hoping for more 3DS release dates and/or new titles, but I suppose we already know quite a few titles on the way.

It was nice to learn of the Bravely Default side story demo. I would like to see more things like this in the future to help promote games. The whole idea of the SP Potions in the eShop is dumb, but I like how Reggie worded it (still dumb though).

Dr. Luigi and Dynasty Warriors Zelda Edition doesn't bring my desire for a Wii U any more than it does now.

Out of all the game showed, I was actually most intrigued by Chibi-Robo. Just seems different and completely quirky. My kind of thing.

Of course I'll be getting DK and Kirby when they drop.
