New Nintendo Direct airing on Tuesday

The next Nintendo Direct broadcast will be streamed online at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST on Tuesday, October 1. Hosted by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata, the broadcast will focus on previously announced Wii U and 3DS games scheduled for release later this year.

Wii U games still to be released this year include Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Wii Fit U and Super Mario 3D World. 3DS owners can look forward to Pokemon X and Y, Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Mario Party: Island Tour.

The most recent Nintendo Direct was used to announce Wii Sports Club, an online-enabled, HD rework of original Wii flagship title Wii Sports. Nintendo also used the mid-September broadcast to reveal plans for a free month-long Wii Fit U trial beginning in November.

    "...the broadcast will focus on previously announced Wii U and 3DS games scheduled for release later this year." So, definitely no Smash Bros, which is fine since Toon Link was just announced. I'd like to see the direction in which the 3DS version is heading, though. I'm kind of hoping that no more Pokemon are revealed because I like meeting the majority of new Pokemon in-game, and we only have to wait until next week. ...Having said that, I think it's time we got some news on the final stages of the starters. I remember that Serperior, Emboar and Samurott weren't even revealed (on the US site, anyway) until after BW came out--and I really don't want that to happen again.

    Reviewers are not allowed to comment on final stage starters, as per dictated by Nintendo. There's an embargo according to Bulbapedia. So you're gonna have to wait until release day to find that out.

    "Reviewers...?" I just want to see them on

    My point is that won't show you them either until release day.

    F*cking Finally, 3 f*cking months with only 2 months left of no new footage for 3D World since E3, with 3 months left for Tropical Freeze. I'm hungry for footage damn it, 3D World needs more footage badly and I really want to see who the heck is the fourth character of tropical freeze, there has to be a reason Retro's taking long to show em even though its almost likely to be Funky.

    I know there's likely not going to be any new Super Smash Bros news/trailers but damn it I want more Smash Brothers news/trailers.

    I completely agree!

    Luigi was randomly revealed in a Nintendo direct, and this month showed 2 characters, anything can happen. The best thing to do is keep expectations low.

    I'm betting there will be a Diddy Kong announcement.

    Well, you must have been pleasantly surprised then
