I love it! My girl has a DS and I am always trying to keep up with the information. Between her games, mine and her father's it seems we have newsletters setup for just about every device out there.

I really enjoy Nintendo Direct. Nintendo do a better job with them then their stage announcements which can be more hit or miss. It's a great way of keeping up to date. Only problem with Nintendo Directs is that people can get a bit too hyped up for them.

The Nintendo Direct feature is pretty cool. I found that I could get all the news about games and consoles by tuning into it. They have 4 different editions - one each for Japan, North America, Europe/ Australia and South Korea.

I liked the news of Hyrule Warriors since it is a crossover between Zelda and Dynasty Warriors, 2 games that I like. It will be out in 2014.

Hyrule Warriors does look like it will be a lot of fun. I haven't really played a Dynasty Warriors game so be interesting to give Hyrule Warriors a go.

Earlier today there was a Japan only Nintendo Direct for 3DS games. Mostly JRPGs so if your a fan of genre take a look.

There will be a Bayonetta 2 Direct tomorrow. Just to be warned this is most definitely an adult rate game.

On September 12th Nintendo Treehouse will be streaming on Twitch. They will be showing some upcoming WiiU and 3DS games. This includes a look at final version of Super Smash bros 3DS.

Not a Nintendo Direct but close enough and potentially better.

Super Smash Bros WiiU Direct will be taking place on October 23rd or maybe 24th depending on where you live. It's going to be about 50 must see things in the game. Keep in mind while 3DS version has released there is version exclusive content.

A new Nintendo direct is scheduled for January 14th (tomorrow) be sure to check for the time it's on for your time zone.

The upcoming direct is for WiiU and 3DS games releasing in Spring. I suspect this will include information on "new" 3DS as well.

Nintendo Japan on February 6th will be having a special Xenoblade Chronicles X Direct. I suspect we will be getting a similar one at a later date.

I agree.

It is a bit silly to do a mini Direct for the game just for Japan. Specially when you think of how social media is right now. Nothing to stop us from watching the Direct even if we don't understand it. Nothing to stop others form providing translations.

Be nice to see all the games get released same time globally. Xenoblade X is a huge game though so in some ways it's amazing the game is due out this year outside of Japan. Normally JRPGs can easily take a year or a lot longer if you live in Europe to get localised and released.
