Atten-hut! (Sounds like Hatena...the good ol' days. Anyway!)
A Nintendo diect has indeed been confirmed by Nintendo of America here:
It is unknown when and if it will appear in other countries, or if it is related to the Direct leak found earlier this week, but one thing is for certain: Amiibo are most likely going to appear.
So Wikia members, remember to help update the wiki after the presentation! This news will be crucial!
