Nintendo wii not updating
It's not out of the question that it could release NX in 2016, too, and if it does indeed combine portable and home gaming into a single [platform/device/sentient primordial goo/whatever], that means we're probably looking at Nintendo starting to wrap things up for the Wii U.
On the off chance there are any huge Wii U games coming out that we haven't heard about, it's possible we'll get announcements this week.
Note: Make sure you are using the right disk for your console.

It represents a particularly onerous localization problem, since songs have to be re-recorded into English at the very least.
Then again, if it is, now would be the time to announce—E3 2016 is going to be all about NX, which means any remaining Wii U and 3DS games need to be unveiled asap.
So depending on how much is still in the pipeline, there's still room for some big surprises even if this Direct only focuses on current-gen games in a limited time window.
