Nintendo of America on Twitter has confirmed a new Nintendo Direct for tomorrow at 3 PM PT. It will run for “roughly” 40 minutes and focus primarily on Nintendo Switch titles launching this Winter. The obvious titles that should appear include Metroid Dread, which releases on October 8th, and Mario Party Superstars, launching on October 29th.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl should also receive some new gameplay since it’s the big Switch release for November while Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp arrives on December 3rd. Dare we hope for any stealth drops and major announcements? Wishing for new information on Hollow Knight: Silksong seems pointless by now but one can always hope.
Beyond its holiday catalogue of games, Nintendo does have a “major” hardware release coming on October 8th with the Switch (OLED Model). This provides a dock with a wired LAN port, an OLED screen and 64 GB of internal storage for $350. Stay tuned for more details from the upcoming Nintendo Direct in the meantime.
