New Wii U games to be revealed tomorrow

Announcements to be made in Nintendo Direct broadcast

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata is to reveal new Wii U games tomorrow afternoon in an online broadcast.


The Nintendo Direct conference is scheduled to take place at 2pm UK time, the company said on Twitter.

According to the official announcement, the broadcast will see "Nintendo president Satoru Iwata take a look at future Wii U software and services from Nintendo".

Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz said earlier this month that Wii U launch software has sold at roughly half the pace of titles for previous Nintendo systems in the US.

It might only be January, but with Microsoft and Sony expected to announce new consoles in the coming months and launch them later this year, perhaps it's not too soon for Nintendo to give us an early glimpse of some of the big-hitters it has planned for release in the second half of 2013.
