Nintendo Direct presentation planned for June 11

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.

There may be more of this sort of behaviour.

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.

The Nintendo Direct broadcast will focus primarily on upcoming Wii U releases, many of which are anticipated to be on show at E3 2013 one day later.
