Nintendo will host a Pokemon Direct broadcast at midday tomorrow UK time, the platform holder has announced.

The broadcast will see Nintendo president Satoru Iwata provide news on the Pokemon X and Pokemon Y games coming to 3DS on October 12.

Don't expect anything too dramatic with Nintendo stating the broadcast will be short.

Pokemon X and Y launch on the same day as the Nintendo 2DS, a cheaper non-3D version of the popular gaming handheld.
