It wouldn’t be Summer Game Fest and the ghost of E3 season without a big Nintendo Direct. Previously teased for June, it now looks like the big Switch showcase could happen as early as next week thanks to a suspicious early announcement from Among Us maker Innersloth.

Back in May, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa announced that the company would be holding a June Direct as it does every year to showcase games coming to Switch in the second half of 2024. He stressed that while Nintendo will begin sharing details on the console’s successor in the next nine months, nothing about a rumored Switch 2 would be revealed during the upcoming livestream.

It now seems like the Nintendo Direct is probably targeting a June 18 stream. That’s according to a YouTube video for an upcoming update to multiplayer murder sim Among Us that was seemingly accidentally uploaded and published ahead of schedule before being taken down again. Copies of the video, which debuts new roles for the the popular pandemic-era party game, are still available and the contents were reported on by GoNintendo.

While it’s always possible that the video is for a standalone announcement, Innersloth has previously revealed updates in Nintendo Directs, and the words “available now” make it sound like a shadow-drop that would go live when the showcase airs. While companies’ plans can always change, the fact that we’re still waiting on the Direct and the month is almost over makes June 18, or later that same week, feel like the closest thing to a sure bet.

Oh snap! Looks like we’ll be getting a Nintendo Direct soon. We won’t be getting Switch 2 news, but hopefully something exciting. What would you like to see, SW? I’m hoping for that Windwaker / Twilight Princess HD remaster port!

Meh. If they’re not going to reveal the Switch 2 then I can’t imagine that this direct will be all that exciting. I guess I would like to see a Windwaker/Twilight Princess port. Metroid Prime 4 would be really nice. I don’t know though, I just can’t imagine them having much left for the current Switch.

And right before the start of Juneteenth, it is ironic for Nintendo to do a direct show but hey, as long as they show off some games, I'm all in for it. I'm curious if it has anything to do with Star Fox Assault HD coming to Switch? Hopefully, this is true.

More milking of the teets of the corpse that once was Pokemon. But I shall predict!

  • Older Zelda game remake that will be cross gen between Switch and its sucessor.
  • Some news of Splatoon, perhaps a spin-off or sequel
  • Pokemon Black and White getting a HD upgrade
  • New Mario game, not mainline
  • Some new IP

Everything shown will look like something released between 2003 and 2011. Imagine being excited for that.

Yeah the Nintendo haters are strong with this one!

I don't expect anything major but if they're going to show Metroid Prime 4 then for me they win the Summer Game Fest by default 😊

Either they show Metroid Prime 4 at the direct, or it'll just cross launch with the Switch 2.

I don't expect much more either, because the Switch has been around for about 7 years now. It's waning down. Metroid Prime 4 for a holiday release is a out the last thing Nintendo will likely do, along with some other smaller surprises.

I have a feeling that Nintendo will release MP4 next year with the launch of Switch 2 along with a Switch port, like how they released Zelda TP and BotW on two gen platforms.

A surprise.

I'm pretty much checked out on buying any more games for the Switch at this stage. I'm holding off playing anything else too. (I'll probably restart Pikmin 4 next year).

So whatever they show, it'll be potential purchases for the Switch 2 anyway for me.

....Probably. I mean if they have a great surprise then all bets are off :P.

Weird that some of you are expecting a company to become something they aren't. Also ... no related i guess, but isn't Forza on his 15th or 16th game by now ? they are behind Zelda by like 5 or 6 games in half the time. Oh well.

To each their own. For me, I enjoy several (not all) Nintendo games so I am interested in their offerings even if they still release the usual suspects such as Mario, Zelda, etc. Sometimes they release games in much less frequency such as Metroid, Pikmin, Donkey Kong, and others, and these games are quality games that are worth playing. Even some exclusives such as Bayonetta, Astral Chain, and others are great to have on their system.

So the narrative that they focus on one or two franchises needs to stop. And the narrative that companies such as Sony are offering better games needs to stop too, because Sony hasn't been doing a good job for the past 2-3 years. Even MS are a hit and miss and most of their shows were absymal bear the last one.

So haters gonna hate, Nintendo gonna dominate 😊

Everyone's hoping for Silksong, Metroid Prime 2/3/4, Windwaker & Twilight Princess, and Gamecube games for Switch online and Nintendo's about to go "here's Mario & Sonic Olympic games and another Mario Party... see you in 2025" XD

Only care about Switch 2.

Mario Maker 3

Super Mario Kart Maker

A new Mario 2D or 3D game that is a LOT better than the last 2

More integration

Everything else is a footnote

Did you just see MS latest show? Playground Games are making Fable, a game that's not in their wheelhouse, and yet Nintendo just keep pumping out Mario, Pokemon & Zelda games, they hardly try anything new, and when they do (Splatoon, Animal Crossing etc) they still make colourful cartoony crap for kids.

Would it be so bad for Nintendo to make a game with adult themes for actual adults to play?

Every developer, Sony, MS etc try to advance this industry while Nintendo is still making games/living in the 90's.

Because they want Nintendo to go third party and make Zelda, Pokemon, and Mario for THEIR console. This whole thing is about them being salty that Nintendo refuses to go third party.
