Nintendo has previously announced that they will be hosting a Nintendo Direct broadcast to reveal some of the Wii U’s hugest upcoming titles–Super Smash Bros., 3D Mario and Mario Kart–and now we have a date and time.
According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata via the Nintendo UK Twitter, the E3 special will be broadcast on June 11th at 3pm UK time / 7 am PT. With the company no longer participating in a large-scale press conference this year, this Nintendo Direct will be the source of all major announcements.
Nintendo had announced that they would be “discussing” those three franchises “before E3″, so we’re assuming that they were referring to this event. E3 begins on June 11th, the same day as Nintendo Direct, but the broadcast is technically on before E3 begins. Sneaky, Nintendo.
