NCL has announced a presentation by Satoru Iwata today, Feb. 14th at 11 pm Japan Time, covering new information on Nintendo 3DS titles. Specifically, Luigi's Mansion 2, as the presentation has been re-dubbed "Nintendo 3DS Direct Luigi special 2013.2.14". It will run for about 20 minutes.

I will be providing live translations here in the OP and on my Twitter feed, @Cheesemeister3k.

23:00 The presentation has begun. Iwata is, as expected, wearing a Luigi hat. Luigi first appeared in Mario Bros. on July 14th, 1983, the very day before the Famicom was released on the 15th.
23:01 This year, 2013, is Luigi's 30th anniversary, making this the Year of Luigi.
23:03 Luigi finally earned a starring role in Luigi's Mansion. Miyamoto appears w/ vacuum! Iwata hands Miyamoto a Luigi hat, making them the Luigi Bros. Miyamoto introduces Luigi's Mansion 2.
23:05 You can really see the depth in the rooms. He explores the dark with a flashlight. Enjoy the different environments in the game. The vacuum is powered-up; vacuum things.
23:06 Try using the vacuum in lots of different ways. Dark light allows you to uncover secrets.
23:07 Luigi explores lots of different, individual buildings. They each have unique features. You have to use different techniques to capture the ghosts. Boo and many others appear.
23:09 "Obaken" is a ghost dog that steals a bone, and you have to chase him down. Comic horror.

Using this on the videos, I can tell that the three videos in the 3DS playlist are for FE:A, LEGO City Undercover, and AC:NL (change the number on the links to 1-3 for thumbnails). The one in the ND playlist is for tomorrow's ND I guess. This is the preview image I get for the ND video:

The above private videos have since been taken down.
