Follow TV Tropes
The one thing I get annoyed with is all of the different conversations going on in the various threads when a Nintendo Direct happens and I figured, why not make a thread to consolidate the reactions, discussions on when and what may appear in one, and possibly even talk about our reactions in older ones.
Remember, if you want to talk about specific Nintendo franchises, go to their specific threads.
Going off this, there are a couple of rumors going around:
The first one is This photo from /v/.◊note It's only a link to a picture. It is an internal memo about a January 27th Direct.
This one is probably fake.
There are also rumors of a media event on January 14th. Right now only a single twitter post is about it.

Sounds like a plan.
Though it's not going to stop discussions in the various threads, I assure you.
But that can happen later. The initial reactions could be in here.
I support this. I hate having to go to every other thread just to see what people think.
Direct on the 14th at 6 am PST.

I already said I'd be there.
In a different thread, yes, but still.
Splatoon release date plz.
Like the chump change broken record I will always be:
A new Tales Series game for Wii U.
There. I've fulfilled my tradition. I figure I can keep it up for two or three more times before someone rightfully tells me to shut the fuck up.
And then I'll be full of the sads.
Splatoon I'm hoping and expecting.
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem I'm just hoping.
Four problems with that:
I'm fairly certain I've told you this already, so no need to repeat it more times.

You have, but I fully admit I don't learn, and I'm kinda stubborn.
The first point alone is proof of the pointlessness of that request.
Hell, they didn't even bother to fix the problems with the Wii version of Graces before porting it to PS 3 and then bringing that version over.
But like a fool who keeps staring into the sun, I keep desperately hoping they might do it.
I don't even have any hopes of a port of a previous game to Wii U.
......Shit. Should have stayed in denial.
Ah well. Xenoblade Chronicles X is coming. I won't miss that one the way I did the original.
Ah, just in time.
It's like E3 (almost) every month.
Oh, this is a newer thread so that's why I didn't know about it.
Hi guys! Really hoping for some Mewtwo, Starfox, Mario Party, and Xenoblade X previews!
It is, I was pretty upset at first when Nintendo said they were going to stop with the big E3 panels and just going to Directs, but now I love them because we get new Nintendo game coverage throughout the year! With E3 still getting the most news!
It's mainly just for live reactions as to not spam the main threads with them.

I did not know this thread existed. I've always discussed games announced in Directs on their appropriate series or console thread.
It's at least better than hoping for a Disgaea game on Wii U. Or Steam...
@Zel: We can still do that, but maybe use this one for live reactions. You can have in-depth discussions in the respective threads.
This isn't a hard and fast rule, but it'd be nice.
The fact that Nintendo AU tweeted a picture of the F-Zero DLC for Mario Kart 8 to go along with this announcement just irks me, since it is just more to add to my undying desire for a new F-Zero game.
Wait, there's MORE F-Zero in Mario Kart?
No, it was probably Mute City that was shown.
Personally, I expect stuff about Wave 4 of Amiibo, the New 3DS' release date officially revealed for EU and NA, and Star Fox.
So we also got this tweet, where Nintendo is asking people to join them at the Nintendo World Store to watch the Direct. Apparently this is usually only done for E3, which makes this very odd. And there's been a lot of teasing on Neogaf that this is something big.
Now the frustrating thing is, all of this could just be for the New 3DS, and it probably is. It's certainly big enough to warrant extra attention. But we know about it, and people seem to be extra secretive anyway. Like there's something else going on. But presumably Nintendo would want to focus on their new revision. So it could go either way, and it's annoying me.
On another note, here's what is basically guaranteed to show up tomorrow. New 3DS coming to North America February 13. It'll launch with Majora's Mask and Monster Hunter. Xenoblade in some form is also definitely showing up. Probably both the 3DS port and X, but at least one for sure. As for everything else, there's too many possibilities to accurately guess.
What was shown? I had school to attend this morning (Why can't Nintendo do these on Saturday afternoons)
Man, I'm really itching to know about the Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem crossover, especially since we know next to NOTHING about it aside from that one trailer from 2013, and news that it was put on hold for awhile.
Fuuuuuuuun. 1am "tonight". (Here, anyway)

How well does it match the trope?
