Nintendo 3DS Direct Scheduled For April 17th

A Nintendo Direct for North America and Europe has been announced for Wednesday, April 17th. This Nintendo Direct will focus on something related to the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo's announcement doesn't specify if it's software or hardware related. We're also unaware of who will be hosting it and how long the presentation will last. It could be related to upcoming 3DS software, new hardware, or even, dare I say, Miiverse integration for the 3DS. At this time, there has been no mention of this being broadcast for the Japanese region.

Here are the scheduled times:
  • North America - Wednesday, April 17th @ 7AM PST/ 10AM EST
  • Europe - Wednesday, April 17th @ 3PM UK time
We'll be sure to publish updates as we receive them. You can watch the North American coverage right here and the European coverage right here.

What are you expecting from the upcoming 3DS Direct?

Good stuff. Nintendo 3DS is really killing it lately. I can only imagine good stuff is on its way. Here is a list of what I would like from this Nintendo Direct.
  • Animal Crossing New Leaf info/video
  • Bravely Default Flying Fairy localization confirmation
  • Flipnote Studio 3D date
  • Original Zelda 3DS title reveal
Am I asking for too much?
Not sure if I will be able to see this on time, but I'll see it sometime in the future.
You'd think that Nintendo would want to concentrate on the Wii U at this point. That system needs some serious help getting into people's homes.

I agree with all but the fourth point. Don't get me wrong, a brand new Legend of Zelda for 3DS would be awesome, but with Nintendo already making two Zelda games, both for the Wii U, a Zelda for the 3DS is the last thing I want to hear about at this point in time. Maybe early next year after Wind Waker HD is released, sure. But not now.

But since there doesn't appear to be a Japanese Direct coming, I'd say that it's incredibly unlikely. Aside from that, all Nintendo needs to do here is confirm a localisation of Bravely Default and I'll be more than satisfied.
Level 5 made this vague post earlier today, so it looks like that they may have something to do with this Nintendo Direct. Perhaps, they'll reveal Guild 02 and/or PL vs AA?
I'm hoping for a tiny snippet of info on Miiverse 3DS. Don't expect a release date or anything, just a mention and maybe, just maybe, a screenshot. As far as games, I'd like to hear something on Virtual Console, maybe that they are adding systems. I really hope Genesis/MegaDrive and GBA eventually makes it's way to 3DS.

I think they are concentrating on Wii U. But, with E3 coming up, I'd expect them to make some quick announcements for 3DS so E3 can be devoted almost entirely to Wii U. E3 is going to be a crucial point in the Wii U's life this year, let's hope they hit us with games, games, games!

I really would like for the Pokedex 3D Pro app to have DLC that adds the additional region from Pokemon X and Y. I think that would be a missed opportunity if not, though I think you are several months premature with that request. I am sure if it will happen, it will be a while after the game releases in October.

I do understand that Nintendo is working on two Zelda titles for Wii U but the fact remains that the 3DS has not yet been given a true original title yet. It really is about time, or at least for this holiday season. Though I think that reveal may fit E3 more than a Nintendo Direct. Oh well, I will be happy if only the localization of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy is confirmed.
Miiverse!!!!
