ORIGINAL STORY 2.00pm The first Nintendo Direct in months will take place today at 3pm UK time (that's 4pm in Central Europe, 9am if you're over on the US East Coast or if you're up and on Pacific Time, go to bed).

Nintendo has said this new broadcast will reveal details on upcoming 3DS games, so we're expecting fresh details for Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The next Layton game is also a good shout, as well as a European launch for the snazzy Galaxy 3DS. And how about that new update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf which adds in Amiibo support?

Do not expect NX news, however - Nintendo has specifically ruled out any word on its new console. Watch the whole stream below:
