That's right, Nintendo will start letting the cat out of the bag tomorrow at 9 EST.

Is Nintendo dead, or you just want the lulz, tune in and find out for yourself. Hype it up and set yourself for disappointment, I know you want it.

Update: stream on now. http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/archive/12-18-2013/

They also needed to do this at E3. Show some GOOD stuff for this year instead of telling everyone to wait till next year.

I hope they show more of the Monolith's X game or whatever it's called

Yeah, it's annoying.

I'll be glad for just about anything. We got Tropical Freeze coming up, which is fine, but it's another fucking platformer.

Hey Everyone! Hope you've Enjoyed the Year of Luigi, Even though we didn't really do much for him, Make sure you get your Limited Edition Mario & Luigi 3DS Bundle or Luigi's Mansion Bundle before the Year is out!

We also hope you've been enjoying Pokemon because we got some more info on Pokemon Bank! We also Hope you go and pick up The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds, It's awesome. Also here's release dates on Professor Layton Azran Legacy, Professor Layton X Ace Attorney and the New Upcoming Bravely Default Flying Fairy for you North American Folk, The game is already out in the UK so I hope you're already enjoying it.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING 'NEW'! (it's not, we've known about it for a while now.) PERSONA *English Title* for the 3DS is Coming to the US! *some spill about Shin Megami Series* - This would be a good time to talk about Fire Emblem X Shin Megami but they won't talk about it because at this point I doubt it's being made -

For Some WiiU news I hope you are all enjoying Zelda Windwaker HD and Pikmin 3! *footage of both games* and I hope you remember to buy the DLC! Also in case you missed our laughable VGX appearance, Cranky Kong has joined the DK Crew in the Newest Donkey Kong Game "Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze!" which will be out this coming February.

Now for Smash Bros. - Recap of pretty much everything for those that haven't been keeping up with Miiverse and the Smash site -

Mario Kart 7!!!!!! - we get a release date -

Here's some 3rd Party stuff. (pretty lackluster 3rd party montage of early 2014 stuff, mostly indie)

- Now would be a good time to show off Bayonetta 2. Nope, no new footage not even a mention -

- Now would be a good time to show off Yoshi's New Island or Yoshi Yarn. Pretty safe to say they're vaporware now -

- Now would be a good time to show off Project X or at least the Name for it. Nope gotta wait till E3. -

*Some Spill about the Miiverse Integration with 3DS and stuff*

That's it hoped you enjoyed this Nintendo Direct and Have a Wonderful day.

Pretty much hit the nail on the head outside of Mario Kart being the 8th installation lol other than that, I'm almost in 100% agreement with it.

Where is the yoshi game they announced for Wii U and yoshi island for 3DS? they announced those two years ago and still no news.

Also where is X?

Nintendo better deliver, i keep supporting them because they desrve to be supported but i'm less patient these days, they took too long to adjust to HD development and too long to release games, Pikmin 3 took what 8 years after being ported from Wii?

Impress me.

Yarn yoshi? I don't see how anyone could be entertained with Kirby's epic yarn who isn't 6 or younger. $50 for a 5 hour game that can be beat by infants, no thank you...

To be fair, I don't think Pikmin was in development until the latter half of the Wii's life, and they were pretty fast in moving it to Wii U and re-doing every nook and cranny considering how behind they were in HD development.

They announced Yoshi's Yarn and Yoshi's New Island almost 1 year ago, back in the January Direct.

#24 Edited by Meinhard1 (6786 posts) -

Which Tropical Freeze character will they announce next!

Seriously though, if that was their announcement geared more towards the hardcore gamer who can appreciate Donkey Kong Country references, then in this we'll likely see stuff on their other titles.

We certainly won't see anything very new or interesting for the Wii U ... otherwise they likely would have shown that at VGX. Maybe a cool 3DS announcement, though.

#25 Edited by senses_fail_06 (6736 posts) -

Probably a new DK character.

Oh wait, they only save the big announcements for the VGX.

#26 Posted by Basinboy (11349 posts) -

Please be excited

Release dates (SSB, DKC:TF, MK8), new footage - those are my demands

I'm keeping my hype low, but I'm sure there will be people here hyping this thing up and then coming back with a meltdown and "Nintendo is doomed!" posts.

Yep, Nintendo's always prone to letting down on stuff like this. No matter what side of the spectrum you're on.

I hope they wear those Luigi hats again. That would signal they were very serious about everything going on.

I'm not expecting anything that will cure my buyer's remorse.

#38 Posted by wiifan001 (18457 posts) -

The only two Wii U games that currently have release dates (that anyone cares about) are DKC Tropical Freeze and Watch Dogs.

I think Nintendo ought to announce other release date or two for next year.

#39 Edited by Xaero_Gravity (9436 posts) -

@wiifan001:

Well Watch Dogs has a release window, not a release date.

#40 Edited by LegatoSkyheart (26070 posts) -

Apparently there's going to be some Maintenance happening on Wii Sports Club at the same time.

They maybe getting ready to release Golf, Baseball and/or Boxing.

Of course they might go the "Available this Thursday" Route or the "Available After this Direct" Route or the "24 Hour Trail is Available now" route.

You'll hear it I guarantee it.

Though I hope Nintendo Releases Boxing for Wii Sports Club on the 26th!

#48 Edited by trugs26 (5778 posts) -

As a Nintendo fan, you learn to keep your expectations low. Do not hype this up, you'll only set yourself up for disappointment. If it happens to be good (like Nintendo Direct early in 2013), then great, you get a nice treat. But just don't expect it.

Personal low expectation is talking about recent releases to enjoy for Christmas, then some early 2014 stuff (which actually isn't much). So maybe Kirby for 3DS and Donkey Kong for Wii U.

These are my conservative expectations.

#49 Edited by Joedgabe (5132 posts) -

I'm hoping for metroid..... what am I gonna get?
