[UPDATE] The show has ended. You can read all of the news and announcements from today's Nintendo Direct right here.

The original story is below

The Nintendo Direct video series starts up again today with a new broadcast that is expected to bring news about the company's upcoming Wii U and 3DS games. The briefing, the first since former host and Nintendo president Satoru Iwata passed away in July, is scheduled to begin at 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST.

You can watch the entire event right here. Nintendo has not announced what games it will show or talk about, but we will have all the news for you as it's announced, as well as a roundup when the event ends.

The presentation is not expected to bring any news about Miitomo, Nintendo's first smartphone game, nor should you anticipate hearing anything about the NX.

As for Star Fox, I don't like the idea of the transformable vehicles. It kind of lose the purpose of having a ground-based landmaster and an air-based arwing. Besides,I certainly did not like the on-foot sections in SF Assault and the arwing (ground-form) sections remind me of that.

OMG you have to use a different piece of hardware to search for a level WTF?

@simonbowden: no. thats just for when ur on the go you can flag levels to play when you get home. You can still find levels within the actual game do you really think they'd be that stupid?

metroid prime: federation force looks marvelous. I don't know how they're doing it but their textures are clearly 8k in that game. Simply WOW.

TP is the Zelda game I never got to play because the graphics became outdated pretty fast.

@cboye18: It was fun but I agree. Even the Wii version was a little too blurry for me. The HD remake should look fantastic.

@Xristophoros: lol I doubt they'll show that Metroid game again. Not after the reception it got.

@TJDMHEM: Yeah. Sakurai retweeted the Direct, so I pretty much expect this to happen. If we get Mii costumes again I don't know what I'll do...

This Direct will either extend the WiiU for another year or confirm its death.

@7tizz: Well, there's that new Mario Tennis game coming out next week... lol yeah, I know I'm the only one excited for that game.

For everyone else though, there's that Xenowhatever thing.

@chris120379: Yeah... I used to play that tennis MMO game called Fantasy Tennis, but not enough people played it so they had to shut it down. I've been waiting for an online multiplayer tennis game since then, so I very much asked for this game.

I would like to hear about Pikmin 4, new Smash fighters, a third Mario Kart 8 DLC pack, Mario Maker DLC, and maybe a release window for Zelda.

I would really be ecstatic if they brought more Gamecube classics (Luigi's Mansion, Mario Sunshine, Pikmin 1 & 2) to Wii U. Those games are insanely expensive to buy now; so, I'd love to be able to play those again without having to pay a lot for a decent, used copy.

Here's hoping news about the Zelda Wii u, a new Mario game, Metroid, both titles coming next year; and the announcement of TP hd coming out next mont. Those are my predictions. One can only wish.
