I work minor PR for Nintendo and managed to see a glimpse of what the next direct holds. Gonna try to post everything I remember.
Now first off, when ever you see those shitty pamphlets with a list of games, ignore them because they're pure bullshit. The way directs are managed is that they are incredibly segregated, and each PR group has to record a separate video for their chunk and then upper management slots everything in. I saw my boss working on editing everything into place when I went to deliver my slot piece. Nintendo does this so that only high level PR and management is aware of the contents of directs until right when they air, and it also let's them quickly change things if needed.
Something interesting is that the N3DS was actually planned for worldwide launch but Nintendo suffered supply constraints so they slotted in that stupid indie interview for the dead space. Australia got the N3DS early because they managed to get some enough supply to launch in one of their smaller markets.
Anyways the direct is scheduled this Wednesday the 14th, the same time as the media event. The first thing shown is a teaser trailer for a new metroid. It doesnt show much, just some early gameplay (think like the first Zelda:ALBW trailer.) Now don't worry it's a 2D metroid in a 2.5D style. It's being made by intelligent systems and the graphics have kind of a smooth look, kind of like metroid other m but not as extreme. Samus wasn't in the screenshot but it looked like it could've been sr388 but that might just be wishful thinking. Release is early 2015.
Next there was Kirby and rainbow curse. Nothing really interesting, its basically what the Japanese trailer revealed but in English. It goes over the plot and why the color has been sucked from the land, shows amiibo support, etc. Release is February 13.
After that is codename steam which is what I had to arrange the trailer for. First up, we show off two more characters, john and the fox. John is this black guy who acts as your demoman unit, and wields a granade launcher. The fox is a woman with somewhat of an Armenian accent with a butterfly on her back and uses a sniper rifle. The trailer shows a bit more of the story with you boarding an alien ship to blow it up. And then it goes into the multiplayer showing some varied objectives like defend and capture and different maps that have some turrets and things.
Then there was a Mario party 10 trailer which honestly I can barely recall anything from the few frames that went by. Dont get too hype for it.
There's also a new Mario maker trailer, that first showed some stuff of Yoshi and he has been translated into the other Mario styles and then some talk about online features.
There was also an indie block with some small talk about gunman Clive 2, affordable space adventures, steamworld heist, olliolli and some other things.
A trailer shows that Japanese Mario themed puzzle game dragons z and whatever (which has a reggie doing some funny things in it) along with a trailer for bravely second and final fantasy explorers both being published by Nintendo.
There is going to be what looks like an expansion pack dlc for Pokemon ORAS and contains the battle frontier which has been made much larger and actually has some routes separating sections with lots of new Pokemon hidden there and secret trainers and stuff. Price is $9.99 and it releases world wide late February.
There was also another Yarn Yoshi trailer that went over some miiverse integration and amiibo support. And there will be info on amiibo support for captain toad, each amiibo looks to unlock a single level themed from that character.
There's going to be a LOT of xenoblade x info shown. There will be a new story trailer shown that looks to show some alien companions and the gamepad functionality is shown off more where you can have all your arts on the touchscreen and can direct orders to your partners in battle. Has more of autismchan as well.
Also remember that web framework nst was working on? Well they've finished MvDK for Wii U and it will also have cross comparability with the n3ds apparently and Nintendo looks to have a couple of tech demos to show it off with future mystery games announced.
Anyways the big thing is n3ds stuff. This is gonna be the last segment and it will be officially announced. To be released January 26th. There will also be trailers for xenoblade, majoras mask, monster hunter, some bamco new IP, what looks like a port of either resident evil 4 or remake, and surprisingly what looks like an exclusive ninja gaiden 3d game. The MH4U demo will be announced to launch the day of the direct, and the rest of the games all have n3ds exclusive features including Zelda.
Important to say, I did not see anything about smash, another Mario game, any atlus games, any bayonetta shit, or otherwise.
And that's what was in what I saw when my boss was scrolling through his videos he was splicing together. There could always be more since I don't know if everyone turned in their stuff yet but these things are definitely in.
And no trip cause on mobile and I don't really have any other games I saw. Feel free to screenshot it or whatever it doesn't really matter, just don't believe if someone else pretends to be me another day, this is the only time I'm posting this shit. Maybe ask me some minor shit before this expires.
>Fake leakers have shit taste
No fucking suprise there
How the fuck are we barely getting a teaser then a sudden early 2015 release
Fuck off. Pretty funny how you found all this by just walking by your 'boss's desk'
Go play in traffic faggot
>hurr durr why do they show anything not at e3
You do realize they show a fuck ton off in directs right?
Hyrule warriors, ALBW, MM3D, Yoshi WW, SMT X FE, and more all were shown first in directs
>le im right because i says so, so i dont care
Yes, but not in fucking January dipshit.
>Hey guys, i just walked by my bosses desk and saw him editing THE ENTIRE NINTENDO DIRECT while i was behind him, here is a detailed list of everything.
inb4 pretending to be retarded
It looked kind of like other m with a dash of cell shading. The textures are more simplified and smooth with less complicated geometry, but it was doing some neat lighting stuff. If I was to compare it to something else, I'd say maybe a less detailed trine?
And no limited edition n3ds unfortunately. NA is getting just black and white regular editions and red and blue xl editions. MM3D just has some n3ds exclusive features like using the camera for free look
>>279127620 What is with Japanese people and this pose?
>Anyways the big thing is n3ds stuff. This is gonna be the last segment and it will be officially announced. To be released January 26th.
The N3ds itself is going to be released Jan 26th? In NA and Europe?
That seems unlikely, but I hope its true.
it's the most direct way to get their point across
It's the Nintendo direct pose, dingus.
going that far to impersonate me.
This isn't GameFreak of old. this is the GameFreak that destroyed pokemon with Black and White. Since then the sales figures aren't enough to sustain it anymore. They need to resort to fan extortion to stay afloat.
>implying OP is even still here

Are you even trying Nintendont?

Black and White has the laziest pokemon design in the franchise. Unlike gen 3 which was just strange and therefore met with apprehension, B&W were just lazy and bad.
On top of that, the new world was not very interesting. It relied on gimmicks rather than having any depth of gameplay or real charm to it's design.
The music wasn't very good.
It's important to realise that while Black and White were bad though, they were just the beginning. It was Black and White 2 that truly killed the franchise.
Then X&Y happened. They haven't done very well either, but again, a distinction needs to be made. These games aren't bad like B&W were bad. They are bad because they aren't pokemon games. The drastic changes to the mechanics, the introduction of digimon concepts to liven it up. They sold out to try and refresh the franchise, and it kinda brought new fans in, but it still fell way short of gen 4 sales, which is really what they'd have wanted to match for the first 3d pokemon game.
Now they're in trouble because they've gone down a path they can't turn back on.
I disagree with you.
B&W was a refreshing experience for me after the distasteful excuse of platinum gen. They sped up the battle mechanics a lot. B&W2 is considered by me one of the best pokemon game. Music? Simply godly. Dude, you get to fight every old champion and the OST is extremely diverse. I remember there being music from every generation, it was a nice blast of nostalgia. The endgame wasn't lacking either and you had a lot of stuff to do.
What really killed the series was X&Y simply because of how casual it was made.
Your opinion is shit, and you are shit.
My opinion? Alright buddy.
Might want to look at your fellow game buyer's opinions then. Black and White 2 nearly killed the games because of how poorly they performed.
You don't know what you're talking about, clearly. Perhaps you should look into this first, before posting about it?
Obviously opinions will always be subjective, but I actually gave sound reasoning for my argument, and I'm clearly not alone. You however, are just an angry little child who apparently had Platinum as his first game? (Diamond and Pearl were the leaders of that generation by the way).
How can you criticize someone's taste in something if you haven't experienced it yourself?
Didn't you say something up there about playing pokemon games while others were in wombs?
Damn son. I think you just got confirmed as a literal Nintoddler.
>2D Metroid when the 2D metroid was confirmed as cancelled since Next Level are hacks
>IS making that along when a new Fire Emblem, new Advance Wars and SMT x FE are already confirmed to be in the works
I doubt this
> not maining Shibata all day erry day
>along with a trailer for bravely second and final fantasy explorers both being published by Nintendo.
That better be true faggot, if it is not then I will fucking kill you and your pet.
