Operation Backlog Completion 2024

It may be April Fool’s Day, but Nintendo has promised the Nintendo Direct tonight is no joke! It will start at 6 PM Eastern Time (3 PM Eastern Time) and cover 3DS and Wii U games. A Nintendo Treehouse stream of an upcoming game will follow.

The time leading up to a new Nintendo Direct is always filled with hopes and predictions, some more plausible than others. For example, I’d be overjoyed if this was the day they finally announced Ace Attorney Investigations 2 localization, but it’s pretty unlikely. On the other hand, maybe we could get an announcement for Fatal Frame V.

Personally, I hope to hear localization news about Dai Gyakuten Saiban. The last few days have revealed a wealth of new information, including new scans from Famitsu, some brief gameplay footage, and the reveal of the sinister new prosecutor.

Why are the prosecutors always so cool?

I’m even more excited for that game than ever. It has a Japanese release day now, so why not announce it for the West as well?

Leaving behind the realm of personal hopes and dreams, I expect this Nintendo Direct to show more from Splatoon and possibly Devil’s Third, among other games from E3.

And of course, I always go into an event like this hoping for many, many surprises!

Let me know what you’re hoping to see in this Nintendo Direct, and don’t forget to tune in at 6 PM. With any luck, I’ll be able to embed the stream here like I did for the Dai Gyakuten Saiban stream, but if not, we can all watch it on the official site together.
