Sony held a State of Play earlier this month and just last night, the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase took place. So far, Nintendo has not announced any major game announcement plans for this month, but according to multiple sources, there will be a new Direct stream very soon.
Sony Santa Monica writer and content creator, Alanah Pearce, revealed during a recent Twitch stream that there is a Nintendo Direct scheduled for the 29th of June, but added that she did not get that information directly from Nintendo. VGC has also heard through sources that Nintendo will be holding a Direct on the 29th of June.
The previous Nintendo Direct took place in February and by all accounts, it was a great showcase, mainly focusing on games coming out in the first half of this year. That list includes the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes and Nintendo Switch Sports.
It is expected that the Summer Direct will focus on games coming in late 2022, as well as a tease at what to expect in 2023. We can expect updates on titles like Bayonetta 3, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, Splatoon 3, Breath of the Wild 2 and the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games.
KitGuru Says: February’s Nintendo Direct was fantastic and there are still a few major known projects left to talk about for the second half of this year. Without a doubt, Nintendo will also have some surprises up its sleeve.
