Nintendo Finally Confirms Their September Direct Date

Nintendo confirmed on Twitter today that tomorrow will see the release of a new Direct, with the focus being on upcoming Switch and 3DS games.

Nintendo's next Direct is coming tomorrow, the company confirmed on Twitter today. It will be a general one, focusing on upcoming Nintendo Switch and 3DS titles.

What can we expect from this Direct? With "around 35 minutes," there should be a large amount of information. The only thing we do know is that it will focus on "upcoming" Switch and 3DS titles. Nintendo doesn't specify if the Direct is only focusing on games coming out in the remainder of 2018, or if 2019 will be a focus as well. Since it doesn't specify, there's a chance that 2019 games will be touched upon.

Of course, it makes sense that the Direct will put a hefty focus on games releasing for the remainder of 2018. Arguably, the two biggest titles are Pokémon: Let's Go and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With Pokémon, a lot of information has already been released on Let's Go. So, one can imagine Nintendo will summarize previous information while adding bits of new details. Now, Smash Bros. is the tricky one to predict. On one hand, there is still a mysterious mode that's waiting to be unveiled. There are also presumably more characters to announce. But, Nintendo recently had a Direct all about Smash. So if Ultimate does appear in tomorrow's Direct, it is quite possible it won't have a large presence. Another notable upcoming Switch title is Super Mario Party, so one can imagine there will be new information on that.

What about upcoming 3DS games? There aren't too many notable titles releasing. The Luigi's Mansion port will be releasing in October, and in 2019, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey will release. However, this doesn't preclude Nintendo from announcing brand new 3DS games or Switch titles. For more games releasing in 2019, Yoshi for Switch, which was delayed from its 2018 release date, would be a possible title to appear. Fans would surely cheer if Nintendo gave Metroid Prime 4, which was announced last year, a release date.

Although not mentioned in Nintendo's tweet, one has to assume a focus of the Direct will be on Nintendo Switch Online. Nintendo's first paid superscription service is launching this month. We know the basic details: cloud saving, access to a growing catalog of NES titles with added online play, and the ability to play online with compatible games. Tomorrow's Direct would be the perfect way to announce a specific release date, as well as any other details pass the basic things.
