Not even Pokémon XY? It would shock me if Pkmn was left out here. ^^

Can anyone share a link to where it will be streaming live?

I'm guessing it will be here:
http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/

But it'd be nice if Nintendo could be a bit clearer about this. Something like a countdown timer, or a message saying when it will be on on the website.

There is that, but I'm already long ago sold on it.

So, for me, we have Pokemon (which I'm already sold on, I don't need to see anymore, just release it lol) and a possible, but not exactly inevitable or even likely mention of a 3DS Miiverse update.

Tell me when they'll start talking about Wii U releases that are actually exciting, like Mario Kart 8, or announcements for further Wii U titles that might get me excited. A Direct for titles "launching later this year", is meaningless to me, because the only thing of interest is Pokemon, and as I said, I'm already sold on that. I want to see what will make me excited for the Wii U, and they haven't talked about anything exciting for the system since the E3 Nintendo Direct.

Well, at least you have reason to Watch it then. ^^

Plus, I very much expect a new game/game for next year to be talked about a Little, too.

so basically we'll get a bunch of new info about games already coming out. Fine by me considering that we know very little about games like 3D World and Tropical Freeze

I would kind of like to have my 'early August Flipnote Studio 3D' by now, if only for being something good AND free I could look forward to. Oh well.

I am hoping we get some virtual console updates. I do want Mario 3 for 3DS

Damn, I forgot about Flipnote Studios... yes, that better be explained here. I mean, they can't put it back to next year when Japan already has it, right..?

Info about the update, that's all I'm expecting.

I'm betting this is the kick-off of their big Q4/holiday marketing push.
I'm expecting this.

Don't forget
-TLoZ:WW HD retail release Oct 4.
-Pokemon X&Y, Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Global Link. Possible for a new pokemon/mega to be revealed.
-Sonic Lost World.

These are coming Q4!
-Mario 3D World-confirmation on new(and/or) returning power ups. Maybe a tease on the new original story.
-DKC:TF 4th playable character revealed, confirmation on what animal buddies are in the game. (Betting on Squawks, Rambi and Engarde.)
-Professor Layton 6
-Flipnote

-An "Oh we have 3rd party support!" trailer That basically is just a montage of games from Ubisoft, WB, and Activision put to dubstep...

Boring Hardware/OS Software stuff
-WiiU and 3DS updates Dates given. I don't expect them on the same day.
-Wii U gamepad larger battery
-2DS
-Possible new color for 3DS/XL (release a white one :!: :!: :!: :!:-it )

Possible
smash tease
Pokken tease
Mk8 tease
Year of Yoshi tease.

Can someone tell me if I can watch the direct live on the Wii U's eShop? Key word is LIVE there. My computer is packed away for now... Please, someone.

If Miiverse and anything to do with it is in extended update mode, it will be the system update that we have been waiting for.

Niiice I'm really looking forward to hearing more about 3D World and DK so hopefully its not all about Pokemon.

No you can't watch it live on the eshop, you can watch it on the web browser though .

Unrealistic totally not happening prediction: a mention of unified 3ds/wii U account coming in the future.

What do you have in mind? I'm just wanting to see it coming to the 3DS.
