Nintendo has announced that it will be hosting a Direct presentation tomorrow morning. This time out, the company will be focusing on the 3DS and games that will be coming out for it through early 2014.

No doubt, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will get some air time, but appearances from Pokemon X/Y, Yoshi's Island on 3DS, Kirby, and Bravely Default wouldn't be surprising. The 3DS is solidly positioned going into the holiday season and has performed well for Nintendo this year on the back of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Pokemon X/Y, and Mario and Luigi Dream Team.

Our Take
There's no doubt that Nintendo should be pushing the 3DS to make as much of the handheld as possible. The timing of this Nintendo Direct is very unfortunate, though. There is a lot of attention on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right now, and that might drown out the Nintendo Direct buzz.
