It's been a long wait since the last Nintendo Direct broadcast, which was before E3, but we finally have a date and time for the next information bonanza. It's happening on 12th November at 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern / 10pm UK / 11pm CET.

The wait for another Nintendo Direct has been a long one for fans, though company President Tatsumi Kimishima recently confirmed there'd be at least one before the end of 2015. A great deal has happened since the last broadcast, and we anticipate that the long stretch between presentations will make this one a notable and longer iteration of the series.

As for what this one is all about, Nintendo's announcement simply says it's focused on upcoming 3DS and Wii U titles. It also seems that Europe and North America will have slightly different presentations as is often the norm; Satoru Shibata is confirmed to be hosting in Europe.

There are a number of Holiday and first half of 2016 releases that need further details or release dates; in fact, so many titles coming next year are lacking firm dates that this could be a key area. Naturally fans will be hoping for some surprises; the timing will have some dreaming of a download treat arriving right after the broadcast, though it's a number of hours after the typical Nintendo Download Update goes live. With recent speculation around the 'leaked' The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, and the pending Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot results, there could be some big announcements to look out for.

How hyped are you for this Nintendo Direct, then, on a scale of 1 to 10? Let us know, and don't forget that we'll be providing live streams, blogs, news and editorial content right here on Nintendo Life as it all happens.
