Nintendo is all set to broadcast the next exciting instalment of its Nintendo Direct web show. The date? Next Monday: July 30th. The time? 8pm Japan Standard Time. The place? The internet.

But, why should we care? Well, the Japanese gaming giant usually uses these online shows to announce new games, eShop updates, upcoming 3DS firmware, and the like, so here's hoping for some lovely 3DS gaming revelations.

Last time, for example, the company used its Nintendo Direct broadcast to reveal New Super Mario Bros. 2, so our hopes for this next one are high.

It's worth noting, too, that the page on which the live Japanese stream will feed currently carries a big Dragon Quest X logo. We're no detectives, but it's probably safe to assume that Wii U MMORPG Dragon Quest X is going to feature heavily in the broadcast. Booo!

Don't worry, though: there's bound to be plenty of juicy 3DS news, too.
