By Ishaan . November 12, 2013 . 5:22am

A new Nintendo Direct presentation is scheduled for the U.S. this Wednesday, and this one will focus on providing details on previously announced Nintendo 3DS games slated for release in early 2014. (Yes, USA, that probably means Bravely Default.)


The Nintendo Direct presentation will be streamed at 8 am PT/11 am ET, and you’ll be able to watch it here.


Update: A similar Nintendo Direct presentation has now been announced for Europe as well. Details below.

    Really think they should be focusing on wii u at this stage. We still have no date for bayonetta,smash or x and we still have no idea what shin megami tensei x fire emblem is.

    • Anime10121

      Release date? We still dont even have a NAME for Xenostoryaboutmechanicalswords (this is your fault Nintedo for not giving me a name :/)!

      But yeah, I agree, we all know the 3DS is awesome, and still pumping out awesome games, and will continue doing so. What we need to hear more about is the Wii U, and why people should even want one if they dont care for Mario.

    • MrRobbyM

      Agreed. Now that Pokemon is out, 3DS will be fine for a while. Their focus should be and should have been the Wii U for a while now.

    • Eddie

      Your totally right, the Wii U is in desperate need of some games, and Nintendo is in desperate need of some new IPs

    • ronin4life

      I would think they need there ducks in a row first.

      3DS has more info at this point that needs detailing, so this needs to be adressed and gotten out of the way.

    • idrawrobots

      Perhaps if they get the 2DS stuff out of the way now. When they announce new Wii U stuff it will have more sticking power.

  • Daobs_

    We’re all still waiting for Digimon World Re:Digitize for 3DS, Nintendo. You see us, right?

    • kylehyde

      i think that namco bandai has the first and last word about that

      • Daobs_

        True, but we need all the help we can get :/

        • kylehyde


    • Blackikun

      I really hope that Bandai give Nintendo the okay for the lunch of that big news bomb… i really hope… PLS!

    • MrRobbyM

      I want it more than Pokemon tbh

    • Renaldi Saputra

      17k signs, bring it on!!!

  • BillyMK

    Please, give us some hope on Dragon Quest VII!

    • Has not been announced, sadly, so if they’re only going to be talking about games that have been “previously announced”… :(

    • awat

      YES Q_Q

  • TheExile285

    I want that Special Edition of BD for NA Nintendo!!!

    Also, I hope they at least mention Senran Kagura Burst.

    • Danniedino

      senran kagura burst comes out this thursday on the eshop :3

    • Eefara

      Why would they need to mention SRB? It’s coming out on Thursday, and this is a ND for early 2014.

      • idrawrobots

        They could simply say, by the way you can bump butts in Senran Kagura Burst on the 14th, for on $29.99.

    • mike dickson

      i hope they don”t so the game wouldn’t get red flagged and removed before i get it so yeah to be safe they shouldn’t

      • TheExile285

        Red flagged and removed? Lol no. If Nintendo didn’t want it on their esShop, XSEED wouldn’t have started the localization process. It’s not like XSEED is localizing the game in secret lol

        • mike dickson

          u never know shit happens

  • common more kirby 3ds news~

    • TheExile285

      YES! THIS TOO! :D

  • Kornelious

    I must have the limited edition of this, don’t fail us now Nintendo!

    • fairysun

      Collector edition of Nintendo Direct presentation ?? :P

      • Kornelious

        I mean for Bravely Default…Nintendo Direct presentation limited edition, order now and win a free ticket to the hype train! lol.

  • KingGunblader

    PREDICTIONS Y’ALL: Bravely Default, Dragon Quest VII, Kirby 3DS, Mario Golf, Yoshi’s New Island, both Layton games (Azran Legacy and vs. Ace Attorney)

    • Aren’t they only going to talk about previously announced games? I’m really hoping for Mario Golf info, like that is has an RPG mode. :) But yeah, would be great to hear about everything you listed!

      • KingGunblader

        Well the only game on that list I made that hasn’t been announced is DQVII, which is of course just me wanting it really badly!

        • Yeah, you’re right! Sorry about that. I just zero’d in on DQVII because I want it too :( :( :(

    • SMT

      I’m also hoping for a European release date for SMTIV… It was announced during a Nintendo Direct, so unless I’m out of the loop and NIS America grabbed the publishing rights, it should still be NoE in charge of publishing the game… And this would be the perfect opportunity to do so…

      And on an unrelated note, I’m also hoping for some sort of promotion combining Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton, sort of like what the US got with Fire Emblem and SMT…

  • Tonton Ramos

    I hope there is more Smash gameplay on 3DS…

    • J_Joestar

      a short gameplay trailer with all the revealed characters would be nice.

  • Waiting on Project Mirai :P I HAVE HOPES!! Oh and the new Harvest Moon~ Hopefully that gets a localization~

  • Xaltmas

    Dragon Quest VII and I will dance in my underwear.

    • Anime10121

      I’d like to try another recent DQ myself as VIII was the only one I liked! I played a bit of V (at least I think it was V) and didnt care much for it… too oldschool for me, so hopefully VII is a bit more like VIII.

      • Xaltmas

        I have never played a DQ game before. I just want more JRPGs on 3DS.

        I have nothing against mobile games, but I’m really tired of every JRPG being announced for mobile.

        • Anime10121

          True that, what REALLY stung me hard was that new mobile game with character designs by Minaba (FFIX, art director of VI, and just a frekin awesome character designer), and a musical score by Uematsu (that actually sounded good again). I knew it was a mobile game, it had a mobile developer, but when it was announced as a mobile game, a single tear rolled down my cheek :'(

          But yeah, Dragon Quest is a good series, just one that mainly focuses on OLD tradition…VIII was the first I played and I loved it! But then I went back and played the remakes of II, IV, and I think V, and realized not much changed in any of those entries… But yeah, your first will always be a blast :)

          • Gregor

            You have to put them in perspective, old DQ were pretty original and progressive for their times. The first two basically created JRPGs, IV had multiple protagonists and one of the first motivated antagonist in the history of JRPGs, V had a generations system and collectable monsters, VI had one of the best job systems of the era and was pretty open ended…
            VII is much more similar to VI than VIII, it’s basically a bigger VI, and perhaps kinda similar to IX in structure.

          • Anime10121

            It may be just because the series isnt as largely focused on plot as most JRPG’s are. The series is more about expanding and evolving that basic JRPG formula that it created with the first DQ. I mean they’re good games… just not games that have a major focus on story (barring VIII).

          • Ric Vazquez

            I know that feel bro, screw mobile.

      • MrRobbyM

        Just looking at the videos, VII 3DS is definitely more like VIII.

      • Brandonmkii

        7 was pretty old school IMO. 8 is kind of the black sheep of the DQ family in that it had more of a focus on story than grinding.

        • Anime10121

          And that’s exactly what I liked about VIII :(

          • Rogerrmark

            The original had a lot of dialogues,though.

            Pretty sure the remake had some system tweaks.

            7 was always praised for it’s lenght and story in Japan.

            One of 10’s main goals was to build an story as much interesting as 7,actually.(since 9’s story and characters were pretty weak)

            Recommended, Maribel harrasing Hero just rules.

            Plus,Gabo rides a wolf now :D

    • kylehyde

      And I will dance naked on a church

  • Serge

    Please, Nintendo, give me some news about Beyond the Labyrinth, Time Travelers, E.X.Troopers or FANTASY LIFE!!!

    • GH56734

      Beyond the Labyrinth is pretty much a lost cause. I could see however Fantasy Life.
      I’d love to ;_;

      • InfectedAI

        Still hoping for Fantasy Life. Pretty sure BtL and Time Travelers are both lost causes, but I’d still love them. TT looks really interesting.

    • almostautumn

      E.X. Troopers isn’t happening. The game bombed in sales and Capcom is probably going to shut down the Lost Planet series now that 3 has flopped globally also.
      Just import it; ps3 is region-free. It’s an amazing game and is 100% playable without knowing any Japanese what-so-ever. Plus it’s an extremely cheap import, which is always a delightful occurence.

      As for Time Travelers and Fantasy Life— dunno why you are hoping at all for that. Level-5 absolutely does not trust its western audiences; they’ve neglected to localize about 80% of their games. There’s no point bothering holding out hope on them; just import and be happy that their games at least have furigana support.

    • Hinataharem

      I always wanted Time Travelers T_T

  • Ony

    I’m still dreaming about a Final Fantasy Tactic A3.
    (But instead we have a lovely FFTA for facebook. THANKS OB- SQUARE ENIX.)

  • Grape Monet

    Probably Mario Party World Tour, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy and Bravely Default. The only other games they have listed for 2014 are Kirby, Yoshi’s New Island and Smash Bros. and they look like they’re a long ways off, especially Smash Bros.

    EDIT: Meant Mario Golf, not Mario Party.

    • KingGunblader

      I thought Mario Party comes out next week…? I heard it got delayed in EU, but I was under the impression that it’s still November 22nd for NA.

  • Guest

    I wouldn’t mind some Level-5 titles announced for localization :)
    Youkai Watch? LBX? Fantasy Life?

    Plus Advance Wars and Rhythm Heaven!

    • Onizuka Gio Hikari

      YES I reeeeeallyy want a english danball senki game and Fantasy Life

  • Rogerrmark

    Focused,not exclusively right?

    DQVII,Fantasy Life,Digimon World,all my hopes for you D:

    I dont remember any game for early 2014 besides BDFF and,probably,that One Piece game,right now…

  • This is nice since I already own the system, but at the moment I want a reason to buy the Wii U.

  • XypherCode

    I’m guessing they’ll do a Wii U Direct next January like they did earlier this year.

  • Heisst

    They should have held off the info shown at the January direct for E3, now everyone expects each Direct to be as hype-worthy as that one and if it isn’t then it’s the dissappointment of the century.

    • ronin4life

      Except no one should rightfully be expecting such when Each time Nintendo has said exactly what each direct will be about.

      • Heisst

        Do you think people pay attention to that? Every single time people say it was a massive dissappointment. They should have held off because the mayority of the views are paid at E3, not the monthly Directs. That’s why their E3 2013 was so lacking too, imagine if they had revealed X and Bayonetta 2 in there.

  • Renaldi Saputra


    C’mon man, 17.278 signs… BRING IT ON!!!

    and hey, what about Medarot? They need love too

    • Nanaki

      There’s an article concerning the recent Medarot games and how they don’t have any reason to localize them at the moment.
      That being said, Decode! o/

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but there’s some upcoming medarot games called dual kabuto and kuwagata..

  • Brandonmkii

    Everyone is yelling about DQ7 but I’d rather have the DQM2 remake. I mean, that’s even if they announce anything new tomorrow.

    • I would love both, but that DQM2 remake especially would be mighty lovely.

    • Bacon_n_Lettuce

      At this point, I’d take any Dragon Quest game on 3DS…

  • mojack411

    Hmm, sounds like they’re just be talking about already announced titles. Oh well, still excited to hear more about Bravely Default.

  • idrawrobots

    Culdcept 3DS. I have been waiting for a hero that will never come.

  • Gregor

    Europe too? Hopefully NoE remember they are yet to give a release date to a certain Shin Megami Tensei announced 7 months ago…

  • Learii

    tomorrow huh?

  • I am ready to not see a new Metroid or Castlevania game. I AM SO READY FOR THAT NINTENDO I BET YOU WON’T PROVE ME WRONG.

  • Shiroe

    SMT4 release date for EU!! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE

  • hazelnut1112

    I hope we get Digimon localization confirmed.

  • Happy Gamer

    I genuinely can’t wait for Bravely Default….

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Come on Digimon Re digitized

    • Hinataharem

      Nooo don’t do that, now I’m going to be waiting for it

  • TalesOfBS

    Thank you Nintendo for showing us how you don’t care anymore about the Wii U. Anyway, I’m still waiting for some information about the few announced titles, especially SMTxFE. I mean, if it is still being developed. Maybe next year.

  • awat


  • Ric Vazquez

    Brave Default on February! Body is ready, wallet…not so much
