It’s not an exaggeration to say that it’s been a tough week for fans of the Big N. After losing Rayman Legends‘ Wii U exclusivity — and seeing the title delayed until September just weeks before its intended release date — the question of which noteworthy games will actually be coming to the system in the near future has become a reoccurring topic. Even Nintendo President Satoru Iwata issued an apology for the lack of worthwhile software arriving on the Wii U post-launch, but there may be a silver lining to this cloud.

A new Nintendo Direct broadcast has officially been confirmed to air tomorrow morning (better known as Valentine’s Day), and it’ll focus on upcoming Wii U and 3DS games that players will have to look forward to in the coming months. The conference will kick off at 9am EST/6am PST tomorrow morning, which has become somewhat of the standard for Nintendo Direct presentations.

Satoru Iwata may not necessarily be someone gamers pictured themselves waking up to, but the information he’ll be revealing may very well be worth getting up for. That said, it’ll be hard to top the last Nintendo Direct, especially considering that it was better than the company’s past two E3 showings combined, but it should provide consumers with an informative look at which titles will be arriving on their console/portable of choice in the near future.

The contents of the impending Nintendo Direct are still a mystery, but it’s safe to say that fans will finally get release details on some of the forthcoming Wii U and 3DS titles. Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, and Animal Crossing: A New Leaf should all be present and accounted for, but it’s also possible that Nintendo has a surprise or two up its sleeve. Whatever Ninty has planned, hopefully it’ll be able to restore the love that many naysayers once had for the brand.

We’ll have all the details on the Wii U/3DS presentation happening tomorrow morning, so tune into Game Rant on Valentine’s Day to read about Nintendo’s forthcoming products to your heart’s content.
