Japan & Europe are having a Nintendo Directs tomorrow (or is it today? Timezones confuse me) however Nintendo of America's Twitter feed said they will have "news" at 8:30 pm PST tonight (April 20th for future viewers of this thread). It is unknown at this time if this means America will have their own broadcast or it will just be a string of announcements, but should be exciting regardless.

Time zones are easy if you think of GMT... like a British person such as me would. PST is GMT - 8, 4.30am GMT.

@LordAndrew: not sure why, but that made me laugh. Nintendo has enough dirty mario kart cash to buy CBSi from CBS probably.

They wouldn't put anything big out on the Wii with Wii U being so close, and they wouldn't talk about Wii U before E3, so it's 3ds related.

They announced the US release of The Last Story through a Nintendo Direct presentation. Anything is possible.

Since you live on the moon, I don't know why you would hope for this, but I hope you are right. But suspect you are not.

Because I bought a US DS Phat. Also, because Fire Emblem is goddamn awesome, and I hate that the good half of Monshou no Nazo has to resort to a fan translation.

My guess on the announcement: Wii U controller condoms.

That can only be excellent news that they want a ton of press coverage about, that's how this works isn't it?

Guys, they later stated they were just translating the Japanese conference, so don't expect Pandora's Tower announcement.

Oddly enough, that pretty much was their response at the time. Not oddly enough, it sucked then as much as it does now.

No, this is supposedly a Nintendo Direct conference. They've been holding these every few months for a while now as a way to make various announcements. Last time, the Japanese conference was also broadcast on Nintendo's European site, while North America had their own presentation.
