Nintendo Direct Live Blog

3ba09d446a5599a835d681d18a396372723It’s the final big conference of E3, but not actually at E3. I’m intrigued to see what Nintendo have got up their sleeve, especially since they didn’t want to share the stage with the big players. I’ll keep you updated with everything Nintendo in this final live blog.
