America – December 5th, 9am PST (watch here)

Europe – December 5th, 6pm  CET (watch here)


No specifics have been provided as to just what games will be discussed. Nintendo Co., Ltd. in Japan haven’t announced a coinciding Japanese Nintendo Direct of their own yet either.

  • Thuggin Love

    Soul Hackers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Soul Hackers and SMT4 please

  • This’ll be a very long shot, but it’d be killer to get any info at all on the next Smash Bros.

  • zferolie

    I think we will hear about Yoshi Land. But some Smash info would be great too

  • ronin4life

    Dates/expected quaters for Luigis mansion, fire emblem and animal crossing. TiiVii and Wiiu eshop demo info. As for 3rd party stuff… probably loose dates and some fresh videos. Maybe one overall new announcement/suprise… but I have a feeling this will be all about additional info on already expected content.

    That’s what I’m expecting.

    • That’s what it sounds like. I wouldn’t expect “new” announcements.

      • neo_firenze

        Give me a Wonderful 101 date and that’s all I need. The other stuff is just a bonus.

        Does seem like it might also be a decent time to unveil the rumored Yoshi’s Land though.

  • Otoya


    • PABLO Rapetti Perez

      HAHAHAHAHA, MAY CAPCOM HEAR YOU! I could crap my pants if there is a announcement regarding Megaman.

      • Otoya

        They just release Rockman XOver, the design is great but sad for the game itself

  • kylehyde

    I hope that some localizations get announced (specially for bravely default, soul hackers and smt iv and if there’s a xmas miracle, project x zone).

  • XypherCode

    For the JP Nintendo Direct, I hope we’ll hear something about Monolith’s Wii U game :)

  • PABLO Rapetti Perez

    Nothing would make more happy than a surprise Star Fox announcement. In the vein of Star Fox 64, no on foot mission. Just full on space battles across incredible landscapes with multiple paths and a nice story line. Do a Barrel Roll joke.

  • KingGunblader

    *queues up broken record*


  • Jonattas F.

    Before December 5th, 9am PST : Hype up!
    After – December 5th, 9am PST: Hype down… as always

  • malek86

    I’m not expecting any new announcements. At most, precise release dates for some of the games announced for the Q1 2013 window.

  • YourAshyAss_Elbows

    I’d like to hear about games that WEREN’T teased for the 100th time

  • TheRealMalek

    Ok small wish list :

    Wii u :
    – Persona 5
    – The world ends with you 2
    – Dragon crown
    – A next gen MMO
    – Ouendan U

    3DS :
    – new “dark” zelda
    – next atlus game
    – new metroid2 d game

    i know there won’t be any of thm but one man can dream :p

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Thats one horribly unrealistic wish list, even if it is a wish list. Persona 5 and Dragon Crown? C’mon lol

      • TheRealMalek

        Dragon crown isn’t unrealistic, seeing how badly the title was handled by sony.
        Persona is just a big wish :p

        • Persona 5 is going to be on the 3DS most likely lol man

          • Um, no. Not likely.

          • Seems like Persona will stay a Sony exclusive. Maybe an Xbox release, but seriously doubt Nintendo will get it. Seems like they have the other half of the SMT games locked down though.

          • TheRealMalek

            Seeing as catherine also released on xbox 360 i doubt it will stay an exclusive (catherine happens in “persona 3-4” world

    • …w-what the hell is this? Come on, you know the site rules about this sort of thing:

  • riceisnice

    Of course it would be on the day of my exams.

  • Obviously not expecting any bombshells, but some 3DS localization announcements for the US conference (e.g. Bravely Default, Soul Hackers, SMT IV) sure would be appreciated.

    I expect we’ll probably see something about Crimson Shroud too.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    The last direct was really good. Here’s hoping for more Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem and who knows lets see if that “All the Bravest” randomly appears.

  • キロ

    I hope we hear about Game & Wario ^^

  • ragingmerifes

    What about the guy who hacked the Wii U and found information about Soul Hackers’ localization? Nintendo and Atlus could confirm that.

  • $29082171

    It’s almost 2013 and we still have no date for Animal Crossing or Fire Emblem.

    That’s all I want to know, since I doubt Nintendo is going to get into 3rd party release announcements that aren’t Squeenix…by the way, Bravely Default too, please.

  • Shadowman

    People are ready to hear those Fire Emblem new.

  • SirRichard

    Time for another session of listening to a soft-spoken Japanese man selling me things.

    I wonder what they’ll show, honestly; they mostly covered 3DS stuff with the last one and not much has changed, unless they have unannounced stuff. They could cover Rayman and Pikmin for the Wii U, maybe Monster Hunter too.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Soul Hackers, Time travelers, SMT4 ,Fantasy Life,Senran Kagura and

    E.X. Troopers would be lovely

  • Pockystix

    Bravely Default news. . . maybe?


  • Hraesvelgr

    I first read about this being just for the Wii U, so I didn’t really care. Now I’m reading about it being about the 3DS, too, and I’m suddenly interested in it. Dammit, Nintendo.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    ……. why does they always choose the worst time of all. Today is my exam.T_T

  • What a complete waste of my time and bandwidth.. personally I was hoping for more unannounced games.. between now and whenever the hell Pikmin 3 gets released we’ve currently got crap all to look forward to.. Why the hell isn’t Bioshock Infinite getting a release on the Wii U?

    Nintendo said they’ve learned (the hard way) about how NOT to launch a console.. yet thus far they’ve done little or nothing to show that they’ve learnt from past mistakes..

    Do we need to wait till Christmas 2013 or spring 2014 to play some decent games? Will people even care then??
