Nintendo is set to host a fairly large Direct stream today. The company announced that kicking off at 7 am PT / 10 am ET / 16:00 SAT, a 40-minute Nintendo Direct presentation will go live showcasing new games and updates.
The 40 minutes will include content “mostly focused on Nintendo Switch games launching this year”, says Nintendo. However, that kind of sounds like we might get some new announcements for 2023 at the same time.
Forty minutes is a lot of time to showcase new games. Nintendo usually takes its time with its Direct streams fleshing out the announcements with presenters and introductions.
MORE NINTENDO – Next Nintendo Direct Will Have Plenty of Zelda News – Report
At the moment, everyone is hoping for details about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel. The game was announced in 2021 and was originally set to launch this year. However, Nintendo delayed the game until next year. The game is still a large mystery and doesn’t even have an official title yet.
Nintendo will kick off the stream at 16:00 SAT over on YouTube. United Kingdom residents won’t be able to watch the stream on the official Nintendo UK channel due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. However, Nintendo says the stream will be published on the channel at 16:00 today following the live stream. You’ll have to just watch it somewhere else live instead.
“As a mark of respect during this period of national mourning, we will not livestream tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct. It will be published as a video-on-demand on our YouTube channel at 16:00 (UK time) tomorrow.”
At the moment we only have rumours to go on when it comes to the reveals of the stream. Reports claim we might get to see remasters and remakes of classic Zelda games. There are also reports of a Metroid Prime remaster. Expect some Bayonetta 3 and new Pokemon content too.
Sony is also set to host a State of Play later today too. Find out more about that stream here.
