Hello there GamersBliss-ers, I’m here to stir the rumor pot on what exactly is going to be going on with today’s Nintendo Direct 2014 announcement, so without further ado, here are 5 things I think they’ll talk about on this very special Valentine’s Day edition of Nintendo Direct 2014 (keep in mind it’ll be 7AM on the 14th in Japan when this airs, despite it being 7PM EST on the 13th here.)
Nintendo Direct 2/14 Rumors
1: Peach’s Own Game?!
Sakurai took to twitter to tease the Nintendo Direct 2014 saying this: “Pic of the day. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day…and the day the new Nintendo Direct airs! It will stream in Japan at 7 AM so it’s going to be a very early morning for us…!” accompanied with the above picture. So with it being Valentine’s day, and it showing peach, and Mario and Peach’s relationship being the longest running, though most turbulent, video game relationship ever (I think?) I’d bet heavily that today’s Nintendo Direct 2014 will have something to do with Peach, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets her own game, either on the DS or the Wii U. A Peach focused game would be a great move and could be a lot of fun.
2: Paulena Playable in SSB4?!
Seeing the image is from Super Smash Bros. I’d say it’s safe to assume that we’re going to get some more Smash news. Now what that could be is certainly up to speculation, but maybe, what with Valentine’s Day, we’re getting Paulena, Ruler of the Angel Land from the Kid Icarus Series. She’d be a great addition to the roster, and certainly appropriate considering the day.
3: Diddy/Dixie in SSB4?!?!
As you may or may not know, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, is releasing today in Japan, so perhaps we will finally see Diddy Kong, or maybe even Dixie Kong, in action for the Wii U/3DS version of Super Smash Bros. Diddy was a favorite of mine, so I really hope he’s returning, and Dixie could make for a ton of fun, floating on her hair and tossing with it. I’ve got my fingers crossed for this one.
4: Kirby: Triple Deluxe Us Release Date?!@#
You know what color is most associated with Valentine’s Day, Red, but you know what the second most associated with Valentine’s day color is? Pink, who else is pink? Kirby! So hey, maybe they’re finally going to give us a solid US release date for Kirby: Triple Deluxe. The game looks amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on it
5: Legend of Zelda Wii U Announcement!!?!?!$%##^%^&*
Finally, and this is a stretch, but you know another great video game romance, Link and Zelda. So Nintendo, complete my heart container and announce the Wii U Legend of Zelda. That would make my Valentine’s Day complete.
Well there you have it, keep posted later tonight where we’ll be covering the first Nintendo Direct 2014 of the year.
