About two hours ago, Nintendo of America made an announcement via Twitter:

“We’ve got some news to share 2nite around 8:30pm PT. Be sure to check back to get the latest!”

Additionally, Nintendo of America made a similar announcement via Facebook:

“Wondering how you’ll understand tonight’s Nintendo Direct since it’s all in Japanese? Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing North American related announcements (in English). Check back here and on our @NintendoAmerica Twitter around 8:30 PM PT to get all the news.”

It seems that Nintendo of America will providing the English coverage of the Nintendo Direct broadcast. In the past, Nintendo Direct videos have disclosed information about game updates for Fire Emblem: Awakening, Mario Kart 7, and Kid Icarus: Uprising, as well as some 3DS software updates and game demos. We could be in store for some important news, so check back here at Zelda Universe in case Nintendo makes an important Nintendo or Zelda related announcement!
