Nintendo schedules Pokémon Direct; Mr. Iwata to make a special announcement tomorrow
Prepare yourselves, readers. News both big and Pokémon-related is coming tomorrow.
How do I know it's Pokémon-related? Because Nintendo tweeted and said as much. How do I know it's going to be big? Because Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will personally share the news with Poké-fans around the world in the first Nintendo Direct (or 'Pokémon Direct', as it's being referred to) video of the year.
So what kind of news will it be? Can't say. I'm not an oracle. But considering Nintendo seems to be making more of a fuss than usual with this impending announcement, it must be big indeed. A new generation of the main Pokémon games, the first for the 3DS, perhaps?
We'll find out when Nintendo debuts the new Pokémon Direct video tomorrow, January 8, at 8:00pm Japan time. An English version will be available at 6:00am EST, meaning the news will be there for you American readers by the time you guys wake up to do whatever it is you do in the morning.
