    Possible Contents from leak:
    Source: http://mynintendonews.com/2015/03/30/rumour-nintendo-direct-on-april-1st/
    Source: Confirmed: http://m.ca.ign.com/articles/2015/03/31/nintendo-direct-announced-for-tomorrow

    So basically, tons of stuff might finally be happening (SNES VC on the 3DS, hooooo boy... WHERE'S MY WII U GAMECUBE?), as well as the mentioned web-browser interface that was told would be included for purchasing games while on-the-go. How much of this leak is true? If it's all true, how excited are you for all this?

    If it is true, it sounds like a really good Nintendo Direct.
    I just wish they would make two different Directs, one for Wii U and one for 3DS

    The direct is real.

    The twist: At the end Iwata says "April Fools!" :hateit:

    If not a rumor, I would say a well educated guess.

    The words 'SNES games on 3DS Eshop' certainly have my attention, but I've been burned before :(

    Confirmed fake

    also this
    obviously fake taking in account how glitchy N64 games looks with the widescreen hack they'll need to modify the games in order to enable descent 16:9 support.

    other bits seem quite credible though. I can see Splatoon amiibos happening.

    The real joke would be if this Direct actually had real announcements for once.

    I think if it was an April Fools there would be something more unexpected and interesting, all of this is rather predictable (although nice), so I'm gonna guess that it's real, or if not, it's pretty close to reality. An educated guess at worst, actual leaked information at best.
    I would kill for a new Paper Mario game that has a proper RPG battle system, so this could be interesting :)

    Quote from the Original source ^^V

    Some guy asked why there are so many Americans there asking a bunch of questions and no Germans even though the Text is in German.
    And the maker of the text answers as seen in the Quote "because they are waiting for the Direct on 1st April. The Germans doesn't seem to fall for it :P"

    just because the direct is real doesn't mean their going to actually announce a new PM game.

    Let me guess...

    3DS - We have an awesome list of new games and stuff for 3DS owners!

    Wii U - News we already know about Splatoon, maybe a release date for Xenoblade and info about Devil's Third and Yoshi's development.

    I'd guess Star Fox Wii U is going to be delayed just as it was Zelda Wii U.
