With E3 just about two weeks away, many companies are getting their big guns ready for the biggest gaming-centric show of the year with plenty of huge announcements, though Nintendo is preparing another of its trademark Nintendo Direct broadcasts right before the big show for Japan.

Nintendo announced that a new Nintendo Direct broadcast will be taking place on Sunday, May 31st to cover the company’s upcoming 3DS and Wii U releases in Japan, with the broadcast to highlight what to expect from the company during the next few months.

The broadcast is currently only expected to cover titles releasing for Japan over the summer, with no confirmation just yet on whether similar broadcasts will be directed toward Europe and North America. The next Nintendo broadcast announced by the company will be its Nintendo Digital Event during E3 2015, once again in lieu of the company making an in-person appearance during the show’s annual press conferences.

The next Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place on Sunday, May 31st, 2015 in Japan, with the broadcast to begin airing at 7pm JP time (6 am EDT/3 am PDT).
