I literally just grinned for like thirty seconds after reading this and couldn't stop lol.  Can't wait!

Also, this is happening sooner than I thought.  Last full Nintendo Direct was December 3rd, so I thought we wouldn't get another until mid-February. 



The Screamapillar is easily identified by its constant screaming—it even screams in its sleep. The Screamapillar is the favorite food of everything, is sexually attracted to fire, and needs constant reassurance or it will die.

New game announcements! :D That's exactly what I need, something to be hyped for besides Bayonetta 2.
It would definitely help the console's sales and image to have some big games announced for it, at the moment there isn't a whole lot in the tubes that we know about.

Here's hoping we find out what Retro is making!



great news.

good move nintendo. let's hope the games are good.



PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE.
NEW GAME AND LOCALIZATION OF ALL THE REST!
WE NEED A MIRACLE.. WII U NEEDS TO SURVIVE!



Switch!!!

Show us the damn Virtual Console and give a date for it, it's the only service I give a crap about.

And take the lid off the Monolith RPG and Bayonetta 2, it would at least create a little buzz for the platform.



I had a feeling a ND was coming this week.
The twitter mentions new games for Wii U! Oh yeaaaah! :D



What time is that in US EST?

Anyways tagging!
