The lights are on
Nintendo has announced that its next Nintendo Direct conference will be happening tomorrow morning, with a a focus on games coming to the Wii U and the 3DS this Summer.
The last Nintendo Direct occurred on the same day in April, and we got a lot of exciting announcements, including a new Zelda game for 3DS and Earthbound coming to the Wii U Virtual Console, and many more. It seems like this Nintendo Direct won't have any bombshell announcements, since Nintendo says it will focus on games coming out in the Summer months.
Nintendo also confirmed alongside the announcement of tomorrow's Direct, that it will have another one before the start of E3 in June. If Nintendo has anything up its sleeves, it is during that Direct that we will probably hear about it.

Oh yes!!! Nintendo Directs are freaking awesome! Nintendo does them so well. I'm very excited.
Can't wait I love the Nintendo directs!
Radical! I. Am. Stoked. :)
Sweet! Can't wait! :D
I would just like a freakin' release date for the Wonderful 101.
Aw who am I kidding? I'm too busy to play games these days. I spent most of last night laying out stats in our current design document because our programmer was ready to implement them and needed them reorganized.
Still haven't finished Injustice, and haven't played Monster Hunter 3 for more than a few hours--during which, I accomplished nothing.
I dunno why people seem to think there won't be any big announcements; I mean, the last ND was packed full of crazy awesome stuff, including the LTTP sequel!
Here's hoping for some more really big news, 'cause Lord knows Nintendo needs to reassure their fans that they aren't abandoning this thing.
People were saying there wouldn't be any huge Wii U-related announcements during the last Direct too, but next thing you know we were surprised with Earthbound news. Who knows, they just might have something nifty up their sleeves... I won't get my hopes up though.
So I imagine we will get some concrete details about Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, other than that I am not sure what else they will talk about. Surely there can't be any major announcements because you would assume they would keep those for E3. Then again who knows with Nintendo, in any event, I look forward to watching.
