Nintendo Direct to return this Thursday

Nintendo will host its first Nintendo Direct since the passing of company president Satoru Iwata on Thursday, with a focus on upcoming Wii U and 3DS games.


Nintendo put a pause on its popular Nintendo Direct presentations after the death of company president Satoru Iwata, but recently hinted that they would resume soon. They meant very soon, as the first Nintendo Direct under new company president Tatsumi Kimishima is coming in just two days.

Details are sparse, however. The presentation will take place Thursday, November 12 at 2 PM PT. The company promises updates on upcoming Wii U and 3DS releases. 

The release calendar is fairly light for the rest of 2015, consisting of just four games, most of them spin-offs: Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, and Xenoblade Chronicles X. We'll probably see some promotion for those, but we're likely to see at least a taste of 2016 plans like Star Fox Zero and Fire Emblem Fates.
