@nate38 Oh yeah, I forgot to mention DLC packs. If they waited until the Smash ballot ended before starting work on the winner(s), then those won't be ready yet, though they could just reveal the results. But, I think they could have a different DLC pack ready to release this month, or next month.
Heck, if this thing's on a Thursday then there could be some sort of thing announced that's immediately put up onto the eShop.
My concern, given the Wii U's name and way they debuted it, is they DON'T know what's good for them, ha ha. That's what I'm saying, sadly. But time will tell, as it always does. I really do hope deep inside me that they learned that lesson.
Also the skittles are not the shocking thing. The shock of them releasing the console in the same year as announcing it is what would expel the skittles out of me, you see.
I also hope they learn their lesson. Though I feel we're always saying that. And later always feeling disappointed.
And thanks for the clarification on the Skittles! That makes more sense. Though...it wouldn't be unprecedented, right? Didn't both Sony and Microsoft reveal *and* release the PS4 and XBOne the same year? Or is my brain old and unreliable with information anymore?
Is there supposed to be a new one coming? (Sorry, haven't kept up on news and rumors for a while.) That would be great if so. Of course, I often still play the first one and it's still good even if I've done it before. :)
@J.K. Riki Japan got a version this year that includes the DS game, the Wii Game AAAAAAND new 3DS levels!!! An epic package, I think you'll agree. Although I think screen tapping is out and button bopping is in... might be a deal-breaker for you.
I don't mind the button pressing, I suppose. I think I just preferred it on the small screen to the giant TV. I dunno, just the feel felt a little off on the Wii version to me. Anyway, it would be great to have a new package with both AND new levels! Add me to the list that hopes for that showcased in the Direct. :)
Yeah, Rhythm Heaven would be a nice announcement for sure. Wouldn't mind confirmation of a western release of Picross 3D 2 while they are at it.
I really hope they aren't going to just talk about Holiday 2015 games...because... I mean, we already know what they are. Heck, most of us are already PLAYING those games. I wanna see some cool new stuff!
Why hasn't the Direct happened yet? What are they waiting for already? I took a nap this afternoon and woke up and it STILL wasn't Direct time. What the crap.
You know, this break has really brought back those old pre-E3 feelings. Like, I was getting spoiled with Directs so often. I enjoyed them, but I took them for granted. There's even a bigger life lesson there, about taking everything for granted.
