Nintendo will stream a video revealing details for its upcoming Wii U console for European audiences as part of a Nintendo Direct presentation Thursday, the company announced today.

The Nintendo Direct stream kicks off Thursday at 3 p.m. U.K. time, or 10 a.m. ET — which is also when a Wii U event that's being held in New York City begins. Wii U launch details for Europe and North America, respectively, are expected at the two events; we'll be attending one and streaming the other, so tune in to Polygon for the price and release date information for the two regions, should it surface. We've reached out to Nintendo to find out what to expect, and to see if any other Nintendo Direct events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks.
