Nintendo Direct is Nintendo’s version of showcasing their upcoming games. Nintendo’s much-awaited showcase has been anticipated for quite some time now, even though Nintendo didn’t make anything official.
In his podcast, game journalist and industry insider Jeff Grub stated that a Direct event is scheduled 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, but Nintendo has finally announced the date of the event.
Nintendo Direct for September 2022
According to the official Tweet, a new Nintendo Direct will take place on September 13, 2022, at 7:00 a.m. PT/ 10:00 a.m. ET.
In accordance with the previous Nintendo long Direct showcases from the publisher, this one will last about 40 minutes. The showcase’s primary focus will be video games coming to the Nintendo Switch this winter.
Note that if you are from the UK, you won’t 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.
What Games to Expect from the Nintendo Direct
Jeff Grubb and Mike Minotti of Great Bomb, talking in their podcast gave us a rough idea about the games to expect from the event. Two of the game could be of Zelda Franchise: Remasters of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
We could potentially get some new information about Breath of the Wild too. 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 make an appearance:
For now, 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, famous leaker, The Snitch, 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. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition was also rated for Switch last month so that we could see that too.
However, Nintendo hasn’t announced any game, 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 out this winter.
