The Nintendo Direct, which is expected to give gamers more details on the all-new Wii U Smash Bros., Mario, and Mario Kart titles, will begin at 7 a.m. PDT.

Nintendo announced in April that it would opt out of a large-scale E3 press conference this year, instead focusing on smaller, more dedicated presentations and events.

Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct was held last week and saw the company announcing a three-game exclusive Sonic partnership with Sega, a release date for New Super Luigi U, and new details about Pikmin 3.
