Watch today’s Nintendo Direct here

New showcase will focus on Nintendo Switch games coming this year (and beyond)

Nintendo will broadcast a new Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday, June 21, focused “mainly on Nintendo Switch titles launching this year,” including new details on Pikmin 4.

June’s Nintendo Direct will run about 40 minutes, Nintendo said in an announcement, and will start at 10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PDT via Nintendo’s YouTube and Twitch channels.

Nintendo’s upcoming announced lineup includes Pikmin 4, Everybody 1-2-Switch!, and the long-awaited Metroid Prime 4. There’s still more DLC coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and, if Nintendo follows the same post-release plan for Breath of the Wild, the possibility of an expansion to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Of course, Nintendo also has a library of retro games from the NES, Super NES, Game Boy, and Nintendo 64 era that it can bring to its Nintendo Switch Online service.

Games from Nintendo’s publishing partners that could make an appearance in the new Nintendo Direct include Sega’s Sonic Superstars, Bandai Namco’s Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster, Capcom’s Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Level-5’s Professor Layton and the New World of Steam, Square Enix’s Lara Croft Collection, and an “HD-2D” remake of Dragon Quest 3.
