It’s time for Nintendo to reassure some nervous fans.

The Japanese gaming giant will hold a Nintendo Direct, a streaming event where the company showcases and announces new products, tomorrow at 3 p.m. Pacific. It focuses on Wii U and 3DS games.

While we’ll probably see announced games like Star Fox and Splatoon, Nintendo will likely unveil new software at the event. The company should be eager to give fans something new to look forward to after delaying the anticipated Wii U installment of The Legend of Zelda to 2016.
