I somehow managed to be awake at this early time in North America to do a Live Blog of this world-wide simultaneous announcement.
This Nintendo Direct is a short one, only about 10 min in length. The fact that this message is being sent in all regions at the same moment means it is likely something big, something Nintendo doesn’t want us Westerners to “peek” at the Japanese message to get an idea of what’s going to happen.
Starting at 6AM EDT, the Nintendo Direct will begin. To watch our live blogging of the event, click to link below to catch us after the jump.
