Nintendo's E3 Nintendo Direct broadcast has been dated, airing online at 3pm BST on June 11 - that's just before E3 2013 officially opens for business, and the day after Sony and Microsoft show their titles.

We know Nintendo is planning to discuss Smash Bros., a 3D Mario game, Mario Kart, and other Wii U games, so this should be a Nintendo Direct you won't want to miss.

You'll be able to watch the Nintendo Direct with us and chat with staff, and we'll bring you news of Nintendo's games direct from E3.
