Nintendo sets date and time for E3 2011 press conference

Satoru Iwata revealing the Wii to the World

Iwata, your fans are waiting.

Nintendo confirmed the exact date and time of their press conference at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. It’ll be taking place in the Nokia Theatre on June 7, at 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8). I can guarantee you that the conference will be live-streamed, as it has been for the past few years, but I don’t know yet where you’ll be able to go to watch it.

The big news that we’re waiting for, of course, is the reveal of the Wii’s successor, but the 3DS will be a major focus of the conference, too. Expect Nintendo to spend a lot of time on Super Mario 3DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Mario Kart 3DS, among many other major releases for their new handheld. I expect it will be one of the greatest Nintendo conferences in recent memory, and I’m sure we won’t be forgetting it anytime soon.

Between now and June 7, Nintendo will probably be staying on lock-down with their information, as they’re the kind of company that loves unloading a single, great barrage of surprises and general awesomeness on us at E3. While I can’t make it to E3 this year myself, I’ll be doing my best to cover all the major Project Café news that is sure to pop out of the event.

    Funny, I had a countdown clock widget on my dashboard for that exact time and date, (12pm eastern time for me.) One of those times a gut feeling was right.
