Other than the *yawn* NSMB2 DLC packs, I don't know what else they possibly need to cover for the west [this year]...

More Paper Mario footage and Nate commentating is always welcome, though. :)

So did that "finally Wii U has its must have app" prediction come true?

Fluidity: Spin Cycle. Hope it comes out in the UK soon...!

And NightSky [even if I don't like it's developer].

Shame about no HarmoKnight - but then it wasn't in the JPN Direct so...

Fire Emblem Awakening doesn't even has a relwase date and they're already talking DLC!

That's ugly...

Cool, appreciate it. I wasn't sure if it was coming during a ND presentation or from IGN or whatever.

Yeah why is this taking so long? Didn't it come out in Japan last year or something?!

Am I the only one thinking they should be talking WiiU since it's coming in less than a month?

I don't see much advertising around here...

Well... that was kinda meh. Most of it was already info we knew about. Still, it was nice to see English footage of Animal Crossing New Leaf! :D I'm kinda interested in Paper Mario Sticker Star, but maybe only with a discount. I don't think it might be worth the $40. Now, where's the Nintendo Direct for Wii U?! >:(

No, it came out in April of this year. I say Nintendo take your time with it. There are way tons of games coming out between now and March that I have to conquer before that title can suck away my life stream

Oh god. FINALLY! They show Animal crossing New leaf.
The direct was... interesting. It's a great day to be 3DS fans, that's for sure.

No problem. I'm as eager for more Wii U info as anyone [especially since I have to wait till the 30th for my NL Deluxe + NSMBU + ZombiU] - don't understand why Nintendo are still keeping so tight-lipped about the Miiverse OS / Online stuff [even if it already looks better than Live to me, personally, atm]. It's worrying...

I'm just disappointed that, aside from the NSMB2 dlc, we got pretty much no new content whatsoever. WOuld've been nice to get FE and AC release dates at the very least

You can summon a GIANT REALISTIC 3D GOAT in Paper Mario. This Nintendo Direct was a success.

"- NSMB2 leaderboards on official website"

Can someone please explain to me the logic behind this? Nintendo can't be that clueless.

Hmmmm.... Funny, you know what we didn't see in this Nintendo Direct? No mention of the supposed "YouTube App" that was suppose to be coming today. Oct 25th was the date that Emily Rogers gave, for the Wii version to be out, right? So where was it? If it really was coming today, than you'd think Nintendo would of announced on the Nintendo Direct, and then actually have put it out in this weeks digital downloads, but I don't see it anywhere.

So are all the Emily Roger apologist, finally going to admit that she is not spot on, and its more like she's dead wrong? You'd think that she would learn, not to give out specific date anymore. Seeing how her E3 2011 predictions blew up in her face so badly, but I guess a leopard doesn't change its spots. She still has until the end of the day to be right, but LOL with the ND over, and the Digital Download press release now out, its not happening guys. So she was dead wrong yet again.

Fire Emblem: Awakening was not announced at TGS.

I love all the little touches made to Paper Mario Sticker Star to make the world seem more like living paper. Namely, the coins and life meters being made of cardboard with the latter being held up by string.
