Quick Predictions for Nintendo Direct 2/13
by Seth S Scott on 02/13/14 10:18:00 am

I truly love Nintendo Direct days. If there is one thing Nintendo has done right in the last year or two (and I think they have done alot more that one thing right) it's regular Nintendo Directs. They are an awesome way to get info DIRECTLY from Nintendo and at the same time as everyone else.
Today's Nintendo Direct is in the afternoon which is good because it means I can actually look at my Twitter feed during the day instead of trying to avoid all the spoilers since almost everyone I follow is a Nintendo fan. :) Here are a couple quick predictions for what we will get later today.
Spolier Alert:

#1 We will get a release date for Mario Kart 8

#2 Nintendo will have lots of DK plushies in the video

#3 We will get info on the delayed, but hopefully released this spring, Mario Golf for 3DS

#4 Nintendo will announce a brand-new eShop game to release in March

(because nothing else is coming out in March)

#5 Reggie will address us from his office and he will be eating a banana

#6 Nintendo will be localizing LovePlus in honor of Valentines Day (yes, THAT game)

#7 Something Smash Bros'y? Maybe a Diddy character reveal, or maybe even Dixie?

I think the hypothesis the Reggie will be eating a banana is a good guess. :P
Don't forget Kirby Triple Deluxe! I'm guessing that'll get a release date.
