Watch: Japanese Nintendo Direct Live

Now updated with the video to watch at your leisure

Nintendo of Japan will host a new Nintendo Direct presentation today at 8PM JST (around 4AM PST for North American readers, and 12PM BST for those of you in UK).

EDIT: Here's the video in full.

The presentation will focus on 3DS and Wii. Nothing on Wii U, I'm afraid. The video is expected to last around 50 minutes.
