New Nintendo Direct to be broadcast next week

Japanese show will focus on third-party content

We're still reeling from yesterday's Nintendo Direct but Nintendo have announced another broadcast for next week that will focus on third-party developed games for 3DS. Yes, that's right there's more to come from 3DS.

However, so far this show has only been confirmed for Japan. There is no exact date for the show but we'll let you know when it is and you'll be able to watch it live on ONM.

Nor do we know what will be announced but with Satoru Iwata recently suggesting that more Japanese games will be released in Europe and the US, this could be relevant to you.

So make sure you look out for it. In the meantime, are there any third party Japanese games that you'd like to be announced? Does Monolith's 3DS game count now that they're owned by Nintendo?!

    Maybe they could show Project X Zone and hopefully unveil a localised version of Professor Layton Vs Ace Attorney.

    Since it's in Japan I doubt we'll here anything about Layton v Wright (though would be nice) but hopefully a Japanese release date for Ace Attorney 5.

    Nintendo certainly means business this year.

    Hope they leave enough magic for E3 cause they are spoiling us.

    Another one? Wow. This just keeps getting better!

    More games from Japanese Developers and Nintendo's eagerness to bring them to the west combines to make a very delicious albeit peculiar pie. But wow are we spoilt.

    Can't imagine there'll be anything particularly exciting. Could be wrong, though.

    Just throwing it out there, but isn't Camelot meant to be working on something? I'd hazard a guess at a new Golden Sun if that's the case. Please, Camelot?

    i want the damn wii u 3rd party Nintendo direct! the 3ds is selling fine, an is being supported by 3rd parties, its the wii u an its owners like me who are suffering! i swear i only bought my wii u at launch for a hd metroid prime game, anything retro touches is pure gold! they are the new rare ware! after Microsoft bought the original guys an made them their b1t$%! i dont know why but i feel like the western media are against Nintendo are tryin to make them fail,an always promote Microsoft! its gets on my tits! they spread lies about how bad the wii u is doing, albeit i admit not having a few killer first party Nintendo system sellers at launch was a massive mistake! new super mario u will not cut it, we needed a 3d mario showing how powerful the wii u is an how its had an a massive step up form the wii! at the moment the casuals are baffled, an i think the pr team at Nintendo should be fired! there are hardly any advertisements in uk!
