Nintendo will not hold a traditional pre-E3 press conference this year, but it's certainly planning more than a few things to make up for it. Today's revelation: A global edition of Nintendo Direct, to be held at midnight Sydney time, between Tuesday June 11th and Wednesday June 12.
This timeframe - 7am LA time (click for more timezones) - is remarkably close to the traditional Tuesday morning slot that Nintendo normally occupies. It will fit in nicely after offerings from Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and Sony, who all have their pre-show events planned for Monday June 10th.
