Nintendo is caught in a crossroads at the moment with its new system the Wii U not selling as well as the Wii did at this stage in its lifecycle. Then it also has to deal with Sony and Microsoft releasing new next generation consoles this Holiday season, which could potentially make the Wii U obsolete.
Sony has already done their reveal and Microsoft has their’s set for this Tuesday, May 21. So, Nintendo hopes to get fans attention this Friday, May 17 with a New Nintendo Direct.

Hopefully Nintendo has some big games planned for all of its systems because they need all they buzz they can generate right now.
