Nintendo will broadcast a new Nintendo Direct briefing tomorrow, March 3rd. During the presentation the company will be talking about Wii U and 3DS games scheduled to launch through summer. The briefing will not, however, contain any news about the allusive new NX console or Nintendo’s mobile efforts, the company confirmed.

Some Wii U games from Nintendo scheduled for now through summer, which we can look forward to seeing, include Pokkén Tournament, Star Fox Zero, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. On the 3DS side, some upcoming Nintendo-related games include Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, Hyrule Warriors Legends, and the Mario & Sonic game.

This will be Nintendo’s second Nintendo Direct briefing in as many weeks. Last week’s Nintendo Direct was focused on Pokémon, with Pokémon Sun/Moon being announced during the briefing. It only lasted about six minutes so hopefully this new one will be longer.

Since fans won’t be getting any news on NX or mobile during the event, Nintendo is planning to talk about both efforts later this year. In fact, Nintendo’s first smartphone game, Miitomo, is due to launch in March, and the way these Directs are coming out it might be next week. Additionally, Nintendo has said it will begin to officially discuss the NX system this year, although no concrete date was given.

The event tomorrow is scheduled to begin at 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST. It will broadcast live through the Nintendo Direct website and most likely via external sites such as Twitch and YouTube.
