Nintendo of Japan has announced that another Nintendo Direct presentation will air at what amounts to 11PM EST on Thursday, June 21, 2012 (that’s today, if you’re in the aforementioned time zone).

This presentation is said to be Wii and 3DS focused. I wonder what news it will bring, if any. And I wonder if North America and Europe will eventually jump on board.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated, especially if other regions announce a Nintendo Direct of their own. Is anyone excited for what’s to come? Discuss in the comments below!

UPDATE #1: Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that they ill be hosting a Nintendo Direct presentation as well! Here’s a few words from NOE.

Nintendo Direct is coming soon – check back here on Friday June 22nd, from 5am BST

Nintendo of America is probably going to announce their own soon. Once again, we’ll keep you updated.

UPDATE #2: And finally, Nintendo of America chimes in. The Nintendo of America presentation will air at 9PM CT Thursday, June 21st / 12AM EST Friday, June 22nd.

    Baten Kaitos 3DS (fingers crossed).

  • Dragon Quest X

  • I assume we’ll hear news of Dragon Quest X and Animal Crossing. We also might get solid release dates for Pokemon Black & White 2.

    I figure we might get some light shed on that mysterious Donkey Kong Country 3DS game that randomly appeared in Gamestop’s system. But who knows?

    If they don’t announce Pandora’s Tower and Fatal Frame 2 Wii Edition for North America I’m going to throw a cussing hissy fit. I hope they give us some news about Fire Emblem Awakening.

    • After Reggie leaking info about Fire Emblem: Awakening’s North American release, they kinda have to, at this point. >.>

  • NOA’s web site says 9pm PT (Pacific) not the 9PM CT (Central) that is listed here.
