Nintendo 3DS Direct scheduled this week


Nintendo have today confirmed that they will stream a Nintendo 3DS Direct broadcast this week.

Scheduled for Wednesday 17th April it’ll be available from 3pm BST / 3pm CEST / 7am PT / 10am ET, and will likely focus upon Nintendo’s summer slate for their resurgent handheld.

We already know about Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, Mario Golf: World Tour, and the arrival of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but we’ll be hoping for a few surprises.

What may come more of a concern is that Nintendo isn’t turning their attention to the ailing Wii U, lambasted by analysts, publishers and critics alike for its poor performance.

E3 2013 may only be months away, but that’s still time best utilised before Microsoft and Sony aim big with their latest hardware.
