Nintendo has scheduled a new Nintendo Direct conference to show off its biggest game of the summer, Pikmin 3. The broadcast will begin at 8 PM Japanese time, meaning 7AM for EST and 4AM for PT.
It’s certainly early, but Nintendo fans alike can expect to see Shigeru Miyamoto and Japanese comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto playing the game together. Who would want to miss that? Two grown children stuck in adult bodies, playing a video game about directing conscious carrot creatures into shelter for the night.
You wouldn’t see Microsoft or Sony trying to pull off a show like this these days.
No information has been provided about an American or European broadcast as of yet, leaving me slightly sad because listening to Satoru Iwata’s adorable English is half the fun of these shows.
Pikmin 3 is scheduled for release in America on August 4th for the Wii U. Japanese audiences will be enjoying it on July 13th.
