It looks like Nintendo is having a few different Directs on the 11th

So, a Pokemon Direct, a 1.5 hour long presentation.

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound is coming to the US.

I'll watch the pokedirect, but finding out the other presentation is 1.5hr makes my hype level rise.

So they really are just hosting their own E3 conference without shelling out for presentation spot on the big screen.

I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

If Pokemon i getting 1.5, the WiiU Direct must be a similar length.

So essentially Nintendo get the hype of E3 for their Direct and get to skip the price of a conference.and have a presentation that is sounding better than any Nintendo E3 conference for a long time, but it's cheap. They are smart guys really.

Lol what if the Pkmn conference was an hour and a half long and the main conference was ten minutes?

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.
