Hot dog. 1UP’s Sam Kennedy reckons Satoru Iwata’s going to announce “quite a few” new games in his GDC keynote tomorrow.

From his blog:

In terms of highlights coming out of this show, I’d say Nintendo’s Iwata keynote is the one that you’ll really want to watch (Jeremy will be live blogging it tomorrow morning). I thought he was just going to be talking about Motion Plus and DSi, but it turns out he’s going to be announcing quite a few new games — for Wii, Wiiware, and Virtual Console (and this won’t just be Nintendo titles, but also third party stuff). I’ve already heard about a few of them (including one that makes me all giddy… I can’t wait for tomorrow now).

IGN said today that press are being restricted from filming after the first five minutes of the speech, which certainly indicates we’re about to see far more than a MotionPlus display.

Remember: we’ll be liveblogging it. It starts at 9.00am PST, or 4.00pm GMT if you’re on the other side of the Atlantic.
