New Nintendo Direct Airs Wednesday
Iwata to offer updates on "Spring 2015" games on Wii U and 3DS.
Nintendo company president Satoru Iwata will appear in a new Nintendo Direct, which airs on Wednesday, to discuss new Wii U and 3DS games coming out this year.
The latest edition of Nintendo's semi-regular showcase of new game projects will go live at 6am Pacific Time and 2pm in the UK. Nintendo said the focus of the event would be on "Spring 2015" titles, but that doesn't rule out the company discussing plans beyond this.
Both western arms of Nintendo confirmed the news via their official Twitter feeds.

One key detail that is due, though not guaranteed for a reveal, is a release date for the New Nintendo 3DS--an upgraded handheld that is scheduled to arrive in the west in early 2015.
GameSpot will be hosting a live video of the event, as well as covering the details via its news teams across Britain and North America.
