    A mysterious tweet posted on IGN's official twitter account seems to hint at an exciting Nintendo announcement tonight.

    What do you think this could be about? Any speculations? Wii U Mini, 3DS XXL, Mario Kart 8, a new Zelda game? Post your thoughts by replying to this thread.

    I'm guessing they mean "tonight" in America?

    or maybe everyone is getting it completely wrong and this is just an IGN specific event (like a live review of something or w/ev)

    There is only 24 more minutes for "tonight" by Pacific Standard Time. So unless we are going by Hawaii's clock, I'm guessing they mean early April 3rd (assuming it's a Japanese Nintendo Direct).

    It can't be that earth shattering of news for them to do a surprise like this. If it was a big deal they would have been marketing it in advance.

    this is so underwhelming that I'm moving the thread to the general gaming area.
