Nintendo Direct Coming Tomorrow, Focusing on Games Coming This Winter

By | September 22, 2021

A Nintendo Direct is coming tomorrow, September 23, promising to show off around 40 minutes of upcoming Switch games.

Announced on Twitter, the presentation will air at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 11pm UK (that’s September 24 at 8am AEST). It will be “focused mainly on Nintendo Switch games launching this winter.”

Amid smaller showcases, this marks the third full Nintendo Direct of the year. In February, a Direct revealed Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Splatoon 3, Mario Golf: Super Rush and more. At E3, Nintendo finally showed more from Breath of the Wild 2, announced Metroid Dread, and revealed Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.

As for what could be shown at this event, there’ve been recent rumours about Game Boy and Game Boy Color games coming to Nintendo Switch Online. Many will also be hoping that we discover the identity of the final character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate after Tekken’s Kazuya was added in June. Is it too much to hope we’ll see more Breath of the Wild 2 ahead of its February release? Judging by how quiet Nintendo’s been about the game so far, quite possibly.
