A Special Wii U Direct Scheduled for Tomorrow Will Show Off What Nintendo Has Been Developing


Jordan Haygood

During a press release earlier today, Nintendo announced a special Nintendo Direct broadcast, which they call "Wii U Direct - Nintendo Games." This broadcast will be held tomorrow, January 23rd, at 6AM PST / 9AM EST / 2PM GMT, and will be hosted by our lovely Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. The Big N wanted to emphasize just how "special" this broadcast really is, so they tweeted a teaser explaining that new software and services for the Wii U would be shown off.

 

Satoru Iwata wasn't satisfied, however, by such simple hype-builders, so he added on the initial announcement with a tweet of his own, proposing that this particular Nintendo Direct will be different from what we might expect:

 

Tweet translated by NeoGaf:

 

"This time, the plan is a bit different from a regular Direct, in that I'll be talking about what kind of Wii U titles and services Nintendo is developing."

 

If you've been keeping track of the company's recent Nintendo Directs, you'll recall that most of them have shown upcoming games largely from developers other than Nintendo, and many of the games have been announced already, only further revealed during the respective broadcasts with release dates and such. It can be deduced by Iwata's tweet that tomorrow's special Nintendo Direct broadcast will focus not on what other companies are up to, but what Nintendo themselves have been working on as of late.

 

Will we be getting our super-hyped up Legend of Zelda and (3D) Mario announcements? Or perhaps a Super Smash Bros. 4 trailer? What about the company's other big guns, like Metroid, F-Zero, or Star Fox? Whatever they show off, we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it. You can watch the broadcast live tomorrow at Nintendo UK's official website, among others.

 

What would you like to see in this special Wii U Direct broadcast?
