NCL has announced a presentation by Satoru Iwata tomorrow, Jun. 22nd at noon in Japan, covering games coming to Nintendo platforms and news on Wii and 3DS. It will focus on 3DS details for Japan that weren't given at E3.
The presentation will last for 53 minutes, and will be followed by 11 minutes of trailers.
I will be providing live translations here in the OP and on my Twitter feed, @Cheesemeister3k.
11:57 The presentation is about to begin. I will be typing in Nintendo's UStream feed above, which will be posted to my Twitter account, which I will copy here every few minutes.
