Nintendo of America has just announced earlier today that a new edition of Nintendo Direct will be streamed across the globe at 2pm PT/5pm ET on February 13th! Everyone’s favorite Nintendo presentation will be focusing on both Wii U and 3DS games and should prove to be an exciting entertainment show for gamers hoping to learn more about previously announced and entirely new games alike. Even a couple of upcoming Zelda titles for Wii U may be shown during this presentation!

Click the jump to read more details about this new Nintendo Direct as well as thoughts on which Zelda titles may be revealed!

Here’s the tweet by Nintendo of America confirming tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct event:

This Nintendo Direct brings some extra hype considering we haven’t had a Nintendo presentation for at least a couple of months now. As always, before a Nintendo Direct airs, we usually have high expectations for what games we want highlighted during the presentation. We should discover more details concerning Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Mario Kart 8, and Yoshi’s New Island. But what about new Zelda titles?

Well, we should be able to take an even better look at the new Zelda/Dynasty Warriors crossover title, Hyrule Warriors. Any new information regarding objectives or missions for the game, even a storyline, would create some incredible hype for the game. We know that a brand new Legend of Zelda title for Wii U is currently in development yet whether Nintendo will show it off before E3 2014 is anyone’s guess. Shigeru Miyamoto has previously stated that Nintendo almost decided to have it ready for reveal at E3 2013 but chose not to in the end. The Wind Waker HD was first revealed in a Nintendo Direct around this time last year so there is a chance that Nintendo finally believes the public are ready to see this incredible new Zelda adventure. At least a sneak peek trailer or concept art would be satisfying until E3 2014 rolls around the last bend.

Last but not least is the always hopeful attempt to believe a Majora’s Mask remake is on the cards for tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct presentation. I hate to burst anyone’s bubble but I really don’t think we’re seeing any Majora’s Mask reveal tomorrow. Feel free to tell me otherwise but I think all the speculation has run its course. However, I would be very glad if Nintendo has chosen to create a remake for one of the N64′s greatest titles.

So, what are you expecting to see from this upcoming Nintendo Direct? Do you think Zelda Wii U or a Majora’s Mask remake will be announced? Let us know your opinions and thoughts below!

  • Spenfen

    The fact that they have made an announcement for an announcement says one of two things: Nintendo is extremely extravagant, or they are extremely desperate for attention/hype (which I can understand).

    • Julian Delarosa

      Think of it this way, every time they hype the f*** out of anything, it becomes that much more desirable

      hell, thats how it is with anything really

    • Nikki

      If they hadn’t made the announcement, I would have never even known that there would be a Nintendo Direct tomorrow- I have no way of getting that kind of info.

    • timefortravel

      Most stupid remark in this thread… A Nintendo Direct could be compared to a mini-E3 press conference, so of course they announce it, they Always do.

      • Spenfen

        The point is that it’s a *mini* e3 press conference. And like I said, it doesn’t mean they’re desperate for attention, although their current state of affairs warrants it in my book.

    • Mangachick14

      Um, how else would people know that the Nintendo direct was going on if Nintendo didn’t announce it?

  • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

    Please give us more info on Hyrule Warriors!

    • michkori

      That’s what i think we will get. Hope some news on Zelda U hopefully the title at least

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      They might mention something about the Sonic Lost World Zelda DLC that they teased about. At least I hope so.

  • Nikki

    I’m hoping for info on Hyrule Warriors, hopefully something on MM(so all the rumors and everything can finally be put to rest), and more info on the new Zelda Wii U game. At least this time, I can actually watch it when it’s on, instead of watching the video afterwards!

  • UltimateTankOP

    Hopefully they’ll show something about Zelda Wii U. It would be nice to at least have some solid evidence that the game exists.

    • The Doctor

      If they do, ZD will be booming with comments tomorrow!

  • zeldamonsuperwholock origami

    This is either for the next Pokemon game (announcements usually in the beginning of each year) or a Zelda game.

    • zeldamonsuperwholock origami

      sorry Pokemon games come out in October, maybe Mario?

      • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

        They should make a Super Mario U[niverse] or Super Mario Galaxy 3, whichever.

        • YoshiFan101

          Super Mario Universe sounds awesome! it could be way bigger than Super Mario Galaxy 2. the name just sounds so cool!!!

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            I have been throwing that idea around in my head since they came out with the Wii U. Like it makes perfect sense! But then we got Super Mario 3D World and it blew my socks off.

          • YoshiFan101

            Super Mario 3D world is worth it right? cause I’m getting a Wii U soon and I’m wondering if its good

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            I think it is an amazing game personally. I played co-op with one other person and had a blast. During the post game it does get hellishly difficult, but as to be expected with recent Mario games. I think it is totally worth it. And if you’ve got a Target near you check with them, I seen it on sale recently for like $30 bucks.

          • YoshiFan101

            okay, I need a Wii U first, and I’ll probably get one eventually. I heard it got good reviews, I needed to be sure if it was good or not :)

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            Well like I said, that was my personal opinion, maybe watch a few early level gameplay videos see if it is your kind of game. And the Wii U is a good investment. They still got Wind Waker HD ones floating around ;)

          • YoshiFan101

            how long are they supposed to be around? cause that WW edition is the one I want

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            Probably as long as supplies last. It didn’t sell as well as they thought it would (go figure) but I know there are still some at my local gaming stores.

          • YoshiFan101

            huh, I still need money. I only have 80$ so I’m gonna need to save up. luckily there isn’t very many games that I want. :D

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            Right, I have had my 3DS for over a year now and now suddenly there are games popping up left and right that I want. Haha [Mostly speaking about Bravely Default]

          • YoshiFan101

            what is bravely deafault? I heard of it but I don’t know exactly what it is

          • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

            It is an homage back to older Final Fantasy games with an updated turn-based combat and really cool features like controlling the encounter rate on the fly. It is made by Square Enix and is supposed to be really amazing. There is a demo in the eShop right now. Took me 10 hours to do the demo. It was great. Haha

    • YoshiFan101

      its way too early for another pokemon game. they will be releasing event pokes first

      • YoshiFan101

        sorry didn’t notice the other comment below

  • http://6starwrestling.net/ Cybrus

    The tweet says “coming by the end of Spring”, so I think this Direct is largely just going to be a review of what we already know. It looks like a final push to get people talking about games fixing to come out. I don’t really expect much in the way of new games announcements, but would be happy to see even one announcement for a new unannounced game.

  • Allen Ryals

    If we get a MM remake I wonder what Zelda fans will crave and demand next

    • Hero of Time

      Hmm, how about Ocarina of Time in HD!!!!! (lol jk)

    • The Doctor

      MM4D maybe? ;)

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      Probably Link’s Crossbow Training HD ;)

  • Zoltier853

    I’m hoping they’ll announce MM 3D tomorrow, ’cause I really want it and for all this talk about it to stop.

    • The Doctor

      That would be cool, but I think they will save most of the Zelda announcements until E3. I’d rather have MMHD though,

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      At least fully confirm or deny the game. Either way works for me.

  • VladNorris

    Hope we get info about Hyrule Warriors, maybe they’ll announce something Smash Bros related too. A 3D MM remake would be a nice announce since it would create hype yet also stop the annoying moaning(minus the idiots saying “No! Do it Wii U, it deserves so!”) Still, don’t give a crap if it’s not announced.

    And I expect some info about the third party support. That actually intrigues me.

  • SethofRenais

    I’m hoping for info on hyrule warriors, Zelda U, x, and shin megami tensei x fire emblem. Bayonetta 2 is the only game that looks good that has a release date so far, they need to say some info about good RPGs coming out this year.

    • VladNorris

      I hope they say more about SMT x FE as well, and that what they reveal changes my mind about the terrible crossover idea it sounds to me. Fire Emblem isn’t a fitting universe for SMT, not is in the same level of quality either(my personal take on it, don’t go for my throat). I’m being faithful that Atlus will make it work.

      • SethofRenais

        I think it will work, I have played both series and it will be set in modern times so I think it will work, I love both series and I think it will work out because both are turned based and as long as they make it more like shin megami tensei and less like fire emblem it should be good.

  • FX

    Personally I feel that E3 should be the time to show Zelda Wii U. A big title like Zelda deserves a big scale event like E3.

    • ShyGuyGaming

      I couldn’t agree more. <3

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      I wouldn’t be against having a few cryptic teasers thrown in there ;) Nintendo is good at that.

  • Billy Pariseau

    im waiting to see if mm3d comes out, because if it does, im upgrading to an xl

    • The Legend of Link

      I hope they will.

  • The Legend of Link

    MM is my favorite zelda game of all time… until my hard drive went out and I had to start the game over again. I was a completionist with everything and was up to the moon.

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you? (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.)

      • The Legend of Link

        Yes, yes I have.

  • Dennis

    I hope they announce a new character for super smash bros like Palutena mebe

    • youravgzeldadude

      Mr.Sakurai retweeted the nintendo direct, so that’s a good thing :) Also, DKCTF comes out in Japan today so it’s probably either diddy kong or a new DK character.

      It should also be important to note that next level games, platinum games, and someone associated with monolith soft x retweeted the direct, and since it’s the first well known direct of the year and airing at a time later in the day, I’d say it’s pretty important.

  • LinktIn

    I have a feeling that they’re going to announce a new Wii U game before a MM remake.. Assuming they make one (which I so hope they do). Nintendo is trying to draw much more attention to the Wii U.
    Either way I’m pumped though!

    • YoshiFan101

      they already announced one at E3 2011 or 2010. unless you mean another Zelda game on the Wii U. which isn’t going to happen for a while. late 2017 is the earliest release date possible

      • itsameluigi1290

        Except Aonuma was going to announce Zelda U a few months back, so it should be somewhat far into development. Late 2017 is a bit overboard.

        • YoshiFan101

          yah, but its supposed to come out in late 2014, and there is no way they have started another Zelda game for the Wii U (other than Hyrule Warriors) because of how big a development they have. and it will probably take 2 or three years. so early 2017 to mid 2017 is probably the earliest we are going to get it.

          • LinktIn

            Either way, Ima gonna spend all of my money buying whatever Zelda game comes out

  • DarkHylianInterloper

    Any Zelda news seems scarce, though would be nice for a some info on ZeldaU, like a confirmed art direction, or title. Or maybe a MM3D announcement (sure hope so, these fanboys are really driving me crazy)
    If anything we’d probably just get a release date for Hyrule Warriors or an official title. That’s pretty much it for Zelda.

    And we’ll probably be getting release dates for MK8 (i heard it’s sometime in May) and SSB4

    I’m really hoping for more intel on SMTxFE or the X project by Monolith. They really sound awesome.

  • Biggie

    I hope they have a trailer for the new Zelda, I want to have something to watch repeatedly for 3 hours straight again.

    • Meddy Awardey
      • The Doctor

        Wow! Even though TP is nearly a decade old, that video still gives me the chills!

        After the Gamecube was announced, this tech demo was realsed, showing the potential of the GC’s graphics:

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEF9Utdu-L0

        It made a lot of people mad to see these amazing graphics, but then have Wind Waker released. That’s why when TP was shown for the GC, everyone was going crazy to see the amazing graphics that were similar to the demo.

  • ShyGuyGaming

    I hope it’s ANYTHING Zelda related. Or Smash related. Or X related. :-)

  • Zachary Morris

    There won’t be any Zelda things shown, that kind of thing only happens at E3.

    • Adam

      Right… like how Link Between Worlds and Hyrule Warriors were announced at E3. Wait nope. Both were Direct showings. ALBW being January of last year and Hyrule Warriors being this past Dec.

  • HylianArgonian

    They showed off screenshots and gameplay of ABLW back in January, 8-9 months before the official release. If they’ve been working on it during the production of ABLW, then I have high hopes for it appearing tomorrow.

  • nignacio

    HELL YES! FINALLY!!

  • YoshiFan101

    I really hope they will announce a MM remake for 3DS. or Zelda U info. or possible release date. but I don’t really think they will. they said focusing on games coming out in spring. so unless we are getting MM in May, then its not Zelda related.

  • TheMightyDekuWarrior

    Every Nintendo Direct makes me feel freaking nostalgic.

    • YoshiFan101

      how?

      • TheMightyDekuWarrior

        Because of past ones. Like, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a game that I was hyped for for three years. Maaan, thinking back on how excited I would get when a clip from the game was shown on them… Great stuff.

        • YoshiFan101

          they probably won’t announce new games. they are focusing on games being released in late spring

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            I don’t really care. I just REALLY want to see more of Hyrule Warriors.

          • YoshiFan101

            same here. I don’t have a Wii U but I’m slowly saving up for one

          • The pirate Tetra

            same.

          • Christburner

            all this talk lately about how sales are down… makes me wonder how many of us want a Wii U but are just super broke at the moment. i for one have been wanting one since the release, i just haven’t had the cash. SOOOOOOON we will have them! :)

        • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

          That is how I feel with Monolithsoft’s X right now. Oh man.

  • Shootdatrupee!…

    I hope there’s event pokemon or something. My old DS coulden’t connect to Internet and every damn time I had to sit there with frustration as oversea friends got super awesome stuff and I got nothing, and now I have a 3DS which can finally connect to Internet and I want some giveaways and events already.
    That aside, I hope they will also reveal a new Zelda game/remake.

    • YoshiFan101

      I had the same problem on my 3DS. Eventually I was able to connect but I still can’t wonder trade because the eShop won’t work and I need an update for Pokemon which is on the eShop

  • StationaryBomb

    I always like a good Nintendo Direct. I never wan’t to miss out on anything Nintendo ever again. I hope for some new material, though likely more content on existing stuff. *sigh* At least the stuff we have now is freaking epic.

  • MaiamaiHunt

    It would be cool if MM3D was confirmed. I am putting off buying for the Wii virtual console just to wait and see if they ever release it. Edit: I would also love some new info on SSB4 and something about Zelda Wii U.

  • itsameluigi1290

    Zelda Wii U probably won’t be announced, considering Aonuma said he’d announce it at E3, but I’d be so happy if they did announce it today. :D

    • CraptainFalcon

      When did he say that?

      • itsameluigi1290

        A while back. And he was going to announce it at the… something Awards Show (I forget what it’s called), but that didn’t go through.

  • Cubemaster

    I wouldn’t normally be expecting much, but I think now Nintendo realizes that they need to sell the Wii U… So, i think either this ND or the next one will just be a huge bomb of new games for Wii U and maybe 3DS. Zelda U was supposed to be at E3, but they might decide to announce it now since it’s a bit more important now.

  • Link

    What if they release MM 3D on the eShop right after the Nintendo Direct is over.

    • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

      They would have to put the shop in maintenance mode like how they did the day after Christmas. Haha

  • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

    Honestly the only Zelda related thing I could think that they would give us is Hyrule Warriors [name not final] or Sonic Lost World DLC that they teased about. Either way I am excited to see what else they’ve got going on.

  • http://gamextc.us/ XTC

    I hope they announce Link’s Crossbow Training HD!

  • LittleGreen

    If they make an MM3D AND an MMHD they have to make an OoTHD

    • Bloody18

      That would be great, but no, they wouldn’t /have/ to x3

  • hollander

    ghehe iknowitwascomming,
    told yaa.

    • YoshiFan101

      what was coming?

      • hollander

        is coming, there gonna say something about MM tomorrow

        • YoshiFan101

          really? when did they say that

          • hollander

            watch my words

          • YoshiFan101

            what do you mean?

          • Turtle

            He is a troll. Ignore what he said.

        • YoshiFan101

          what? when did they say that???

          • hollander

            Why did you reply twice?

          • YoshiFan101

            uh, I didn’t

          • hollander

            ?? watch the comments below?

  • CraptainFalcon

    I’m watching Nintendo Direct right now. ANYONE WHO’S READING THIS SEARCH IT UP QUICKLY IT’S LIVE RIGHT NOW.

    • YoshiFan101

      its really laggy, and it doesn’t have anything that I care about.

      • CraptainFalcon

        Just wait for it. I’m being really patient right now. They’re still talking about a bunch of eShop games now.

        • YoshiFan101

          yah, I’m hoping for MM 3D

          • CraptainFalcon

            There’s nothing related to Zelda

          • YoshiFan101

            noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • CraptainFalcon

    THERE WAS NOTHING RELATED TO ZELDA. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

  • itsameluigi1290

    No Zelda anything, aw.

    • Mangachick14

      Seriously?!

      • TheMightyDekuWarrior

        Where have you been? Also, Yepper isn’t our enemy anymore.

        • Mangachick14

          I was using too much internet and my parents limited me to only using it for schoolwork -.-’ Finally, after I started being good they eased up, and now I’m back.
          And Yepper? As in, the upvote, waffle guy? One of the main contenders of the wonderful adventure unfolding in the Zelda Movie article? I pretty much figured that, since he wasn’t talking about waffles anymore and declared virtual war on ZI.

          • michkori

            Yea he changed his ways after i hollered at him because i thought he was the person sexually harassing people a few days ago. So be thankful you weren’t here for the pervert troll.

          • Mangachick14

            Pervert Troll? Umm… ew. I guess I should thank my parents for my temporarily disappearance.

          • michkori

            Yea … dude was disgusting to say the least.

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            That’s fine. Good to see ya back, also… I forgot to ask this question a long time ago, did you ever get that 3DS for Christmas?

          • Mangachick14

            Yeah I did, along with A Link Between Worlds and Pokemon Y.

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            Did you ever beat A Link Between Worlds? Ending’s great.

          • Mangachick14

            Yeah, I have. They somehow managed to slip in two great plot twists. Totally wasn’t expecting the Ravio twist at all.

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            Ravio turned out to be my favorite character in the game, and probably one of my favorite Zelda characters. Hey, what’s your 3DS Friend Code? Mine’s 1134-7218-5274

      • itsameluigi1290

        Besides NES Remix 2 but $15 is a bit overpriced for something like that.
        WAITING FOR E3 NOW.

        • Mangachick14

          I was so freaking excited when I heard of the nintendo direct for the possibility of Zelda WiiU news, or at least something about Hyrule warriors. I swear, this company just loves to drive us all completely bonkers with anticipation!

          • itsameluigi1290

            IKR? I seriously can’t wait for Hyrule Warriors. I wanna play as Zelda. XD

          • Mangachick14

            Me too! Her powers could be so OP and controlling her would be the coolest thing since sliced bread.

  • The Logic Breather

    As far as Zelda goes I wouldn’t expect anything more than a slight update on hyrule warriors and maybe even a teeny tiny possibility of a teaser picture/trailer/Aonuma comment for the wii u game.

  • The Logic Breather

    Seriously though, expect to get a refresher on the spring line-up(and more smash bros new characters spoilers). Also a teaser trailer advertising a teaser trailer that they might show at E3.

  • TheMightyDekuWarrior

    Though I’m disappointed that they didn’t release any information on Zelda, the other games looked really fun!

    One game that really caught my eye was the blacksmith game. It looks fun, I’ll get it.

  • CraptainFalcon

    This Nintendo Direct was pretty boring. Bayonetta does not appeal to me, X looks pretty stale also and The eShop games were just… The only thing that was worth looking at was DKCTF and MK 8 that’s about it.

    • TheHylianPixels

      I’m glad I decided to watch it on Youtube. I skipped over 10 minutes of the video because I didn’t give a crap about the games.

      • TheMightyDekuWarrior

        I actually watched it on Youtube, as well. My stream was lagging.

  • TheHylianPixels

    Highlights of the Direct: Yoshi’s New Island launch date, Little Mac for SSB4, Kirby Triple Deluxe, various E-shop games, and GBA Wii U VC.

  • Marvel

    I really hope Hyrule Warriors supports online multiplayer. That would be the only thing that would convince me to buy the game.
