With the shortest notice that I have ever seen Nintendo give for a Nintendo Direct, there will be a new Nintendo Direct starting at 11PM EDT (50 minutes from the time of this article posting) in Japan, with a North American Nintendo Direct to take place at 11:30PM.
No link to actually view this Nintendo Direct has been found yet. When it has been made available for public consumption, I’ll update this article with the stream link. The rumored topic for this event is 3DS games and their release dates.
UPDATE 1: The Japan Nintendo Direct was released a few minutes ago with a six-minute pre-recorded message of a disembodied Iwata head (in the style of the Brain Age floating head) talking about New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC. New levels for Coin Rush will be available on Tuesday, October 2nd for 200 yen. We will have North American dates and pricing when the Nintendo Direct for our region gets released in about 30 minutes from now.
UPDATE 2: The rumored 11:30PM time came and went without a video posted from Nintendo of America. I’d expect this video will come out some time tomorrow morning. When it does, we will have the video embedded to this article for all to see.
