Earlier today, Nintendo announced that a new Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place on 11th June, before the E3 Expo opens; the broadcast will focus on future Wii U releases.

That isn't all that Nintendo has to offer, as it will also be holding a one-and-a-half-hour developer roundtable / Q&A on upcoming 3DS titles Pokémon X & Y. This will take place on the same day as the Nintendo Direct, and is scheduled for 6pm PT / 9pm ET / 2am UK time / 3am GMT. It won't be streamed online for all to watch, but it's standard for various events of this type to take place at E3 without being broadcast. Despite this, we can expect to see some interesting information and quotes from the session.

Confirmed panelists include the Pokémon Company president and CEO, Tsunekazu Ishihara, and Game Freak director Junichi Masuda. We'll naturally keep our eyes peeled and bring you any revelations or fresh information as they emerge.
