Nintendo President Satoru Iwata and friends will be hosting another up close and personal evening of Nintendo releases tonight at 5pm ET, 2pm PT with an all new Nintendo Direct. The occasion is to announce Nintendo's Spring line-up of games headed to the Wii U and 3DS systems.

You can watch the Nintendo Direct Broadcast live at the Nintendo Direct site or stay tuned to Complex for news as it drops. Some big games expected in the line-up? Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Yoshi's New Island along with a few more surprises.

Nintendo Direct is the company's way to side-step game press and go straight to the fans which means fans will get all the typical Nintendo weirdness including but not limited too; banana holding, silly hats, looks of wonder and synchronized cheers. ENJOY! Watch live here
