The next European Nintendo Direct conference will be broadcast on Friday, June 22 at 5am BST, Nintendo has announced.

We are promised new information and trailers for upcoming games - paying particular attention to the 3DS.

European president Satoru Shibata will be your host.

The early broadcast is likely down to the fact it airs at the same time as a Satoru Iwata-fronted show goes out in Japan.

Watch live over on Nintendo's website.

Expect release date info on Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Paper Mario: Sticker Star, each due before Christmas. We don't expect anything Wii U related - at least not anything new - so soon after E3.
