    fucking finally

    X!!!

    edit: just read “end of spring’… nvm probably be cranky kong reveal for smash or something

  • Leon_Tekashi

    Get psyched! Hopefully we’ll get some sort of news about SMT x FE. D:

    • Locksus

      Haha, I came here just to say this

      SMTxFE, please!

    • Sevyne

      “focusing on Wii U and 3DS titles due out by the end of spring”

      Don’t expect anything related to SMTxFE. Hell, “X” is probably not even going to be a part of this direct and I’d imagine that to be much further along than SMTxFE.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        That usually means nothing for new game announcements. The last Direct was focused on spring-due games and we got Hyrule Warriors announced.

        • Sevyne

          I know it doesn’t rule out game announcements, but one shouldn’t get their hopes up when we kind of already know what to expect. Also, mentioning either of those games technically wouldn’t be a game announcement seeing as they’ve already been announced. We know they exist in some form.

          • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

            I’m pretty sure there were other cases where they gave updates on games outside their announced window.

            But yeah, I doubt we’ll hear anything about SMT x FE, anyways.

            • Sevyne

              Like I said; I’m not ruling out the possibility. X could be squeezed in there with an update (still doubt it). SMTxFE I think I can safely say will not. That game probably has barely even gotten started. I think it’ll be a while before we hear anything about that one.

              That said, I’d absolutely love a few surprises, but I certainly don’t expect any. I think the only one that may be in the realm of possibility is a Bayonetta update, because I’d imagine that one is furthest along of the games with no release. That and probably show a new Smash character. EU will probably get a SMT IV release date or something too (which would be great for them, because it’s a great game).

    …focusing on Wii U and 3DS titles due out by the end of spring…

    Meh… -___-

    • Skyer Ist

      Even when they say about spring, summer, autumn, etc. there’s always surprise in every Direct – announcement of completely new game or localization of a japanese hit.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Timing’s really weird on this one. 5pm EST? That’s like, almost night time. I’m usually up early in the morning for these.

    • Sevyne

      Now that you point it out, yeah that is pretty weird. These are usually pretty early morning.

    • DarthBrian

      Maybe they want to make sure the east coasters don’t miss any Olympics coverage. :p

  • Leon

    EU release of Shin Megami Tensei IV?

    • Sevyne

      That’s a lot more realistic than what some folks are expecting. It’s possible.

  • https://twitter.com/Stealth___ Stealth

    I am totally excited, Nintendo always delivers with these, at least 1 cool suprise.

  • shogunknight

    10 pm UK time? Thats quite late timing.
    Edit: It better have a release date for Smash and Bayonetta, aside from DK:TF theres a drought of games on WiiU

    • Silver Citizen

      This is going to be talking about Spring games. I highly doubt either of those games will be out by the end of Spring.
      Edit: I stand corrected.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Added JP stream.

  • Anime10121

    So… Let me guess, we’ll see some Mario Kart and the remainder of the direct will be about 3DS titles…

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It will be Mario Kart more Mario Kart and then Kirby and Yoshi. Possibly some Smash. And also a lot of DK.

    • Samsara09

      well,some bravely default 2 info…or on any other rpg for 3ds would be wonderful.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’m sure we’ll see some Smash and DK too. But yeah, Kart should be the main focus with some 3DS titles too.

  • artemisthemp

    Nintendo Direct and NISA Announcement happen on the same day, convenient? I hope so

    • https://twitter.com/Stealth___ Stealth

      I know whats happening at the NISA event and it has nothing to do with Nintendo.

      • Anime10121

        GIVE ME THE GOODS!!! I demand info! Tomorrow is too long a wait :P

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      No relation. Trust me.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Convenient? Uh… is that the word you wanted to use?

  • SuperLuigi

    There better be some Kirby news. I mean how long does it take to translate a game like that?! Also Yoshi’s new island would be neat.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Kirby doesn’t take that long. And it has a release window.

  • MrKappa

    X and Bayo 2 confirmed to be in this direct? Can’t wait. Hoping for release dates on both these titles.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope, people think they might be, but it is super unlikely because Nintendo hates showing stuff we want. They show DK DK DK DK DK DK DK. When we already know enough about it and don’t really care about it.

      • Silver Citizen

        Stop being such a pessimist. Soraya Saga has retweeted 2 ND announcements and they both had videos for X. She retweeted this one too.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Sorry but I have emotional issues I can’t stop out of the blue sorry. And it doesn’t matter if it is retweeted or not. The employee from Next Software stated his was for his fanship not an announcement. Get your hopes up if you want, and when they are crushed don’t cry to me.

          • MrRobbyM

            I don’t think anyone is going to come crying to you.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              It is a figure of speech, learn it.

              • MrRobbyM

                I’m just poking fun at your constant negativity. Loosen up.

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  I don’t know if you read what I said or not but “I have emotional issues”. Medical ones. Not simple just pissy because something I didn’t like happened or whatever.

                  • MrRobbyM

                    My condolences. But knowing that, you should probably refrain from commenting on something you feel negatively about, which seems to be most of the time, or entirely, if that helps. It gets tiring to see someone always crushing someones hope or just being downer. It’s different from being a realist. I truly do understand what it’s like to have issues. There’s not much you can do to help it but please, try to help yourself and everyone else.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Sadly I don’t care what you have to say about my commenting, until the mods (people that actually matter) say something about it I will continue on as I have, if you don’t like it you don’t have to comment, or view the comments or article or site at all. Nobody is forcing you to do anything.

                    • MrRobbyM

                      It wouldn’t bother me nearly as much if you kept it to yourself instead of replying to other people’s comments in the same manner.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      “Sadly I don’t care what you have to say about my commenting”

                    • MrRobbyM

                      Never implied you do.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Then you’d not needlessly say something.

                    • MrRobbyM

                      Just trying to make a point. Weather you care or not isn’t that important.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Your point is dulled then.

                    • MrRobbyM

                      I don’t think you’re quite grasping what I’m saying..

                      I’ll end it there I guess.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Thank you sir.

    • crimsonidol

      Maybe. As far as I know at least the developers behind X retweeted this ND-announcemnt.
