Nintendo Direct E3 2013 Presentation: Watch It Here - 3PM BST

Date: June 11th
Time: 7am PDT / 3pm BST
Watch it: Nintendo.com

Nintendo are, for the first tie in history, not holding a proper E3 press conference. There's a lot riding on this nintendo Direct presentation, mind. We'll finally see the games that the Wii U has been crying out for: new 3D MarioSuper Smash Bros., and Mario Kart. We're also expecting to finally see what Retro have been working on for months.

Elsewhere, there'll probably be Platinum goodness with The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2, and hopefully more info on The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Monolith Soft’s new RPG, not mention a few other game announcements please Ninty!

We'll be live tweeting our reactions during the presentation, so do get involved in the conversation below and let us know your thoughts. Who know, you ight end up with a mention in our impressions roundup piece following the show...

Erm, Spring 2014 is too long to wait for #MarioKart8 , Ninty. Funny story: other things are releasing at Christmas...

pmsl. I now have snot and coffee all over my desk.

So, you have between now and November to shift as many consoles as possible. It's a tight deadline, and you're going to suffer if you don't shift them by that time. What's your plan, Ninty?

You're bringing some games out we already knew about, and half of them will be in 2014?

Well, 2014 looks quite good for Nintendo.

At least there isn't any major competition that's going to stomp all over them next year...is there? Oh.

To expand my immediate thought in the above post, I thought Nintendo's showing was fairly solid in terms of the games that were shown and the presentation's brief, to-the-point structure, without exactly being great.

3D Mario looked great to me, with some goof multiplayer potential, and Super Mario Kart looked superb fun. Oh, and on the face of it X is just a perfect combination: big mechs, big monsters and open world to explore.

Other than those, I was that' impressed. What really shot them in the foot were those tragically distant release dates. Next Spring for Mario Kart and practically next year for Super Mario 3D world just isn't good enough for Nintendo when they'll have Sony and Microsoft raking it in between them at Christmas this year.

The absence of a new Metroid or a brand new Zelda, or even a new, exciting IP, does leave me wondering how Nintendo are going to limp on through the rest of this year.
