    So main 3DS games will be revealed in an hour's time. What is everyone expecting we'll get?

    Footage? Logo? Titles?

    I feel completely and utterly miserable...why? I have to leave exactly 15 minutes before Direct starts. I'm...I'm gonna cry. Why did my court date have to be today? At least my boyfriend is going to watch it for me, and call to tell me exactly what it is, but I want to see with my own eyes! One hour and seven minutes by my clock.
    I will be on here very, very rarely. The account is not dead, per se, but I will not be on often. This has become a den of hatred, hostility, and anger. It is not the SPPF it was when I joined, and I really dislike coming here. To those of you who were nice to me and were my friend, thank you. Goodbye.

    Don't know if this means the news is aired ahead of any other time zones or not, but the Australian website claims that the footage will be aired at 9pm AEST, which is about 5 minutes from now. I don't know if this is true or not though seeing as the Japan footage is scheduled to air about an hour later? Any thoughts/clarification?

    Logo and template footage like all other first release videos of a new game showing off they system and style of the game as well as some characters and Pokemon. Definitely a logo or 2 will show up as well as a seasonal release range we will say either fall or winter.

    Under normal circumstances, nothing but Titles and Logos.

    In a post-Nintendo Direct world? In 2013? For a 10-minute direct? Well, we may get a developer interview.

    They're right, NoAu are just idiots. It will air at 9pm AEST. However, the eastern states are currently using daylight savings time. 9pm AEST is 10pm AEDT. Nintendo seem to be working off GMT, but have neglected to take daylight savings into account.

    Queensland and Western Australia are an hour off, but it's strange considering Nintendo AU is located in Melbourne. But it'll be 10PM for us as usual most likely.

    My thoughts exactly. Seeing as its about 9:05 now here in Melbourne without any sign of the stream playing. Bah!

    It should come on at exactly 8pm Japan time no matter where you live. So what ever it is should show up in less than an hour now. Pretty sure at this point it's all been recorded and will be aired and we won't have Iwata replying to bad chat comments.

    The Europe & Australian Nintendo Direct sites have the classification for the games up, whatever the games are. Look under the stream:
    http://www.nintendo.com.au/nintendodirect
    http://microsite.nintendo-europe.com...direct/nal/?13

    That means we should almost certainly get gameplay footage as there isn't a need to classify the game unless there is footage shown.

    My body is ready. I take it all the directs are going to be the same except subtitles of your respective language for what Iwata is saying. Or is it something different? I'm not too familiar with these simultaneous worldwide directs.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    Yeah, pretty sure given the nothingness it will be at 10pm. =p

    Easy enough to wait for though.

    Game classifications are extra promising, but let's face it a new gen has been on the cards for a while (see: the accelerated giving out of 5th gen event Pokemon already, closure of an anime season soon and a new one to start that's likely going to be a filler one, etc etc). But of course, let's just wait and see if it is a new gen and not just some surprise game (who knows, could be WiiU? Doubtful, but...)
