Live Coverage: Our liveblog of Nintendo's big E3 presser.



--> Nintendo's big E3 2009 Press Conference is scheduled for Tuesday at noon (Eastern Time) and will take place on the first day of the E3 expo.

The conference will be starting shortly, so be sure to keep this page open as Gaming Target editor Matt Swider twitters live from the show and John Scalzo follows along at home.

What will Nintendo have on hand to show us this year? The smart money is on a new Super Mario game, possibly a new Legend of Zelda game, Wii Fit Plus and maybe, if we're lucky, Kid Icarus.

Ready? Here... we... go...
