A few weeks ago Nintendo announced that it would be holding a conference in New York to showcase the Wii U.
At the time no announcement was given with regards to a European event but now Nintendo have announced that they will be streaming a new Nintendo Direct preview aimed at the European market.
The Nintendo Direct Wii U Preview will be streamed on 13 September at 3pm UK Time, this will be around the same time that Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will take to the stage in New York.
The Nintendo Direct preview will be hosted by Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata and will take a closer look at the upcoming console.

You’ll be able to watch the Nintendo Direct Wii U Preview on Thursday at Nintendo Direct website (UK) http://nintendo.co.uk/nintendodirect
