Tonight marks the first Nintendo Direct announcement event since the untimely death of Nintendo President and icon Satoru Iwata. His presence will be missed, but we promise to be excited about all the great Nintendo news in his honor.
However, two things we won’t hear about are the upcoming NX console and the company’s foray into mobile game territory. They likely want to put as much emphasis on the Wii U as possible for what may be its final holiday season, with the NX set to debut at June 2016’s E3 and rumors of a launch later that same year.
So what are we in for tonight? More Smash Bros. DLC—possibly the results of the Smash Ballot write-in character? Zelda Wii U news (though maybe not if it’s moving to the NX)? Maybe something solid on the Minecraft Wii U front? We’ll find out soon enough!
