Could this mean more Mario Tennis Open?

It appears that it was announced from Nintendo's President, Satoru Iwata on his Twitter feed that Nintendo has given less than 24 hours notice of their next Nintendo Direct event.

It starts in Japan at 12 noon (8:00PM PDT) ,
in Europe it starts at 12 noon (5:00AM PDT, April 21) ,
and for North America, it starts at 8:30PM PDT .

LOL, about the comment from Yoshi in the last link. Nice one.

It'll be in Japanese, though. It will show here at 8:00 PM PDT in the United States, of course.

Also, Europe is getting their own Nintendo Direct on Saturday, as well. European Nintendo Direct

I hope North America/Reggie gets one, too, so we're not left out.

Well that's okay. Because VIP and I want to know what's the news from Nintendo's upcoming games, mostly Mario Tennis Open. If we are lucky, then we will tell SuperZambezi about what's new with Mario Tennis Open. He will be back after he returns from the concert.

It will be a surprise for him if Mario Tennis Open is mentioned in these Nintendo Direct events, and newer features of the game. I have tuned into Nintendo Direct Live from Europe tonight at 11PM AEDT. But I will listen to the Japan and North American versions as well. So it's just 2 hours and 5 minutes away.

I didn't say I found videos, there won't be any video of any sort from Nintendo of America. E3 2012 is coming very soon, and E3 is specific to North America, in Los Angeles, California.

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know what you meant. But good news! Only 48 minutes before ND starts in Japan and 78 minutes for North America. I'll stay online on YouTube and find useful videos about Mario Tennis Open if I have to.

Just a quick update: Nintendo of Japan has released a Live channel on their ND website, so we get to see it live! (Only in Japanese)

Me throughout Nintendo Direct Japan:

HOLY s***! PONPONPON IS IN THAT DRUM GAME!
YES
OMG Ulala! THIS GAME LOOKS AWESOME!
 Well if Luma is playable then Rosalina MUST be a playable char I mean I saw Baby Peach so Rosalina is most likely in and they are keeping it hush.
BOOO! That soccer/football game looks boring! ... GAH who are these people!? Soccer/ football players?
WTF!? A folder?
OMG I see chibi Miku!!!!!!
I think he mentioned Mario Kart WiiU... not sure
They made Marth look even more girly!
New Super Mario Bros 2? BETTER NOT BRING THOSE TOADS BACK!!!!!

I got bored after this...

But all in all the info i was able to get from this was good I'm excited more than ever!
