Nintendo sent word to let us know of a brand new Nintendo Direct presentation slated for Thursday, February 13th at 2 p.m. PT or 5 p.m. ET focusing on software for both Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U hardware.
Nintendo says that the presentation will focus on software shipping by the end of Spring, which means we can expect new details on a handful of games.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze launches this month on Wii U, while Nintendo 3DS has a new Professor Layton game subtitled The Azran Legacy in February and Yoshi's return to island living in Yoshi's New Island next month.
We'll have all the news from tomorrow's Nintendo Direct as it breaks, but until then don't forget to read our full coverage of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. I've been playing the game at home for our review, but for now our hands-on preview will have to suffice. Don't forget to check out seven ways I died in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze too.
Nintendo also held an indie-focused eShop event for new indie games on their way to Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U. I'd expect a montage of games like Shovel Knight, Siesta Fiesta, and Retro City Rampage to appear in tomorrow's Nintendo Direct. Click on any of those game titles to read hands-on previews from that event.
What does Nintendo need to show to recapture the collective gaming audience?
