Super Mario Bros. Wonder Nintendo Direct: How To Watch And Start Time

Get ready for 15 minutes of Super Mario Bros. Wonder.


The next Nintendo Direct has been announced, and it's happening today. A Nintendo Direct focused on Super Mario Bros. Wonder will be held on Thursday, August 31. This will be our first extended look at the game following its initial announcement earlier this summer. It's also the first time we'll see the game since learning that longtime Mario voice Charles Martinet will be retiring from the role.

The event begins today at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET, and the broadcast will run for about 15 minutes, Nintendo said. During the event, Nintendo will provide an "in-depth look" at the 2D side-scrolling game.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder brings Mario back to his 2D roots, and it looks like one of Mario's most colorful and unpredictable games yet with Elephant Mario making his debut.

The game is set for release on October 20. For lots more, be sure to read GameSpot's Super Mario Bros. Wonder roundup of everything we know.

What to expect

As mentioned, the Super Mario Bros. Wonder direct will focus on the game and providing an "in-depth" look at it over the course of 15 minutes. It's possible this broadcast will also include the promised video message from Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and voice actor Charles Martinet. As announced previously, Martinet will not voice Mario in Wonder or other future Mario games as he transitions to a new role of Mario ambassador.
