Nintendo Direct Announced for October 1st

by on September 30, 2013

It has been announced that a new Nintendo Direct will broadcast tomorrow, October 1st, at 3pm BST.

Apparently we’re going to hear about updates on ‘previously announced software coming to Wii U and 3DS for the remainder of 2013.

So that’s Zelda: Link Between Worlds, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, Sonic Lost World, Professor Layton, Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies, Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club among a few others…

If it’s only 2013 stuff then that counts out Mario Kart and Smash, and the announcement specifically states ‘previously announced’, though it’s not as if Nintendo isn’t allowed to surprise us. Just that it’s perhaps better to temper anticipations, yeah?

Better not to ponder the possibility of the announcement of linked eShop accounts and a 3DS OS update with Miiverse support. Best not to, because we don’t want to tempt the shadow of disappointment do we?


Disappointment or not, I’ll be tuning in to see more of Shibata’s ‘brilliant’ comedy. You can watch the whole thing on the Nintendo Direct website here.
