UPDATE: Due to a magnitude 6.7 earthquake in Hokkaido, Japan, Nintendo has delayed this week’s Nintendo Direct. Nintendo has tweeted to expect a reannouncement “in the near future”. Stay tuned at Launch Party Gaming for more updates.
Grab your popcorn! Nintendo has finally announced the long-awaited September Nintendo Direct. After weeks of speculation, fans were relieved to find that Nintendo has confirmed the rumors about a Direct coming this Thursday. At 6PM EST tomorrow, you can expect 35 minutes of 3DS and Switch news.
So what exactly can you expect in this Direct? Keep in mind, Nintendo has said multiple times that they haven’t revealed their full 2018 lineup yet. After this year’s lackluster E3, Nintendo’s stock price took a hit. Nintendo will have to deliver lots of great games for the holiday season to appease investors and fans, and it’s likely that this video announcement will involve some of those upcoming year-end titles. Lots of rumors are being thrown around and we’ll have to see which ones turn out to be true.
Are you excited for tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct? What do you think Nintendo will be offering for the holiday season? Let us know in the comments.
