A Nintendo Direct has been announced for tomorrow, after being widely expected to happen sometime this week.

Nintendo often holds a Direct around this time of year, especially since that means new games announced at the Direct can be shown at TGS (which begins next week).

This Nintendo Direct will be 40 minutes long and focus on games coming out this winter. Of course, while that’s the Direct’s focus, wording it that way often means they’ll also included a handful of announcements outside of that timeframe.

A few things have been leaked, including one that will make me happy if it’s true, but with 40 minutes to fill, I hope they have some exciting surprises in store. I expect we’ll hear more about some of the games announced in the previous Direct, like the untitled Princess Peach game, and maybe the Baten Kaitos remastered collection since it’s actually out tomorrow.

Of course, I’d be delighted if anything from my list of TGS hopes made an appearance.

(Fatal Frame VI? Anyone?)

While there are also plenty of rumors around about the Switch’s successor, I don’t think they’d include an announcement that big in a regular Nintendo Direct like this. That feels more likely to get a special announcement sometime next year, while this will focus on Switch games ahead of the holidays.

Maybe my dreams will come true and they’ll announce a Xenoblade Chronicles X remaster. Either way, I have my fingers crossed for exciting trailers.

What do you think will be announced at tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct?

  1. I wonder how many of the games originally planned to be announced tomorrow at both this and the Playstation “State of Play” will be delayed because of this whole Unity fiasco…
