Slow sales and a quiet release slate have hindered the Wii U since launch, but Nintendo is finally going to reveal details of fresh titles for its new console.
The next Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place tomorrow (Friday, May 17th) at 3pm BST, and will be dedicated to Wii U games due for release this spring and summer.
We already know about a handful including Game & Wario – due on June 28th – and Pikmin 3, although the latter has yet to be dated.
Nintendo may well offer more details on digital games heading its growing eShop, as well as third-party games such as Ashes Cricket and Resident Evil: Revelations.
While announcements of brand new titles are unlikely at this stage, the platform holder has promised another Nintendo Direct around the time of E3 detailing games scheduled for "autumn and beyond".
Since the company has decided not to hold its traditional E3 press conference, it’s likely the big announcements will be saved for the next broadcast. We already know that a new Mario Kart and 3D Mario game are in the works, as well as The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD.
New titles revealed may well feature in Nintendo’s E3 booth activity.
Check back tomorrow for details of the titles Nintendo does decide to showcase.
