The Next Nintendo Direct Lands This Week, But Don’t Expect Any NX News


We were promised a Nintendo Direct before this year’s end last month and low and behold, we’ll be getting one this Thursday, Nintendo has announced today.

Though the company’s spend a number of months restructuring itself after the untimely passing of its late President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, Nintendo will be holding a livestreamed Direct on its website and its Twitch channel Thursday, November 12th at 2 p.m. PT. It’s not known who will be presenting the Direct, though the company has alluded to having different presenters per region as it has in the past.

The Big N claims that while there will be no updates on either its mobile endeavors or its upcoming NX game platform, it will be providing some updates on apparently unannounced Wii U and 3DS for the remainder of the year–or what there is left of it.

Since Iwata’s passing last summer, former Nintendo of America President Tatsumi Kimishima assumed his role as president of the company, a role he seems to possess adequate experience in. Whether he will be present in the Direct to demonstrate his new leadership is something we’ll have to wait and see.
