Nintendo Direct is Nintendo’s version of showing off their upcoming games. Nintendo’s long-awaited showcase has been expected for a while now, although Nintendo didn’t make anything official.
In his podcast, gaming journalist and industry insider Jeff Grub stated that a Direct event is planned for September. He also talked about a few games that could be announced at the event. A reported delay occurred due to the unfortunate passing of Queen Elizabeth II, however Nintendo has finally announced the date of the event.
According to the official Tweet, a new Nintendo Direct will take place on September 13, 2022at 7:00 a.m. PT/ 10:00 a.m. ET.
In keeping with the previous lengthy Nintendo Direct showcases from the publisher, this one will last around 40 minutes. The main focus of the exhibition will be video games coming to the Nintendo Switch this winter.
Please note that if you are from the UK you will not be able to join the stream as a gesture of respect for the Queen’s passing. You can watch the event later as an on-demand video on YouTube.
Speaking on their podcast, Jeff Grubb and Mike Minotti of Great Bomb gave us a rough idea of the games to expect from the event. Two of the game could be of the Zelda Franchise: Remasters of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
We could also potentially get some new information about Breath of the Wild. The game was supposed to launch in 2022 and was later delayed to 2023. A Twitter leaker has revealed a list of other games expected to appear:
So far, the arsenal of announced games includes Bayonetta 3 in October, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet in November, and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sometime in 2023.
Also famously delicious, The sneak, hinted that It Takes Two for Switch will also be announced at the Nintendo Direct. The same leaker also hinted today at a possible Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse on the Horizon for Switch. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition was also reviewed for the Switch last month, so we could see that as well.
However, Nintendo hasn’t announced any games, so we’ll have to wait until tomorrow for official news. If the rumors are correct, Nintendo fans could be in for a treat as all the games will be released this winter.
