If you own a DS, 3DS or Wii then be sure to watch the latest episode of Nintendo Direct over here or via the embedded video below. The show is hosted by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and includes a detailed look at a number of upcoming titles as well as new information direct from the games’ creators.

The video is in Japanese with English subtitles and some of the featured games won’t be released in Europe. However, a number of upcoming titles such as Kid Icarus: Uprising and Mario Tennis Open get plenty of screen-time so it’s definitely worth watching. The quirky Japanese titles shown during the latest episode also provide a fascinating insight into the 3DS gaming scene over there.

Nintendo recently published a release schedule for Europe covering all three of its currently supported platforms. There are certain to be many more titles added to this list as the year progresses so you can just treat it as a preliminary schedule for now:
