I do think it’ll be in September but I’m wondering if it’ll be a partnership showcase again and Nintendo just shadow drop trailers for games nearer next year. It’s hard to really know after what’s been happening.

@FragRed The article about no hardware this fiscal year is making lean towards the same outcome. No hardware this fiscal year probably means BotW 2 is April 2023 or later (Nintendo have announced Spring titles to be March before like the 2 Kirby games so it was possible BotW 2 was March 2023) and the September general Direct mostly covers September - March which means BotW 2 would likely be absent if it's not a March 2023 release.

What do we have then:

  • Kirby's Dream Buffet - I think it's very likely to release in August which means it wouldn't have presence in September
  • Splatoon 3 updates - I think it's very likely to have a Splatoon 3 Direct in August, then post launch updates could be a twitter post
  • Switch Sports golf - That could be a twitter post like the Leg Strap update was
  • MK8 Deluxe DLC wave 3 - That could be a twitter post like Wave 2 was
  • More news on Sparks of Hope - Likely at Ubisoft's event in September (Ubisoft Forward) and was present at the June Partner Showcase so could appear at another one
  • More news on Bayonetta 3 - Could be a Bayonetta 3 Direct in September/October (Bayonetta 2 had its own Direct) or twitter post like the release date trailer was
  • More news on Scarlet/Violet - Pokemon hasn't appeared in a Direct since the March 2020 Mini so could be just twitter posts now that we had the Pokemon Presents yesterday

That's the known stuff, now for the unknown stuff. It's possible that Nintendo announces something else for this year but it's also possible that what we know is it, meanwhile January - March usually has 2 releases so we're likely looking at a maximum of 3 unknowns. Nintendo sometimes uses Square Enix and Capcom exclusives to fill in gaps (e.g. MH Rise took the March 2021 slot). We've also got the indefinite delay of Advance Wars to take into account.

@Grumblevolcano Whatever happens with the new hardware, Nintendo is gonna want to go all out once again with several big releases. BOTW 2 would be again a great showpiece as well as a new Mario Kart because that game alone would sell systems. But I’m not sure they’d release a new game in that franchise while the DLC is still ongoing. They must be working on the next Mario game unless rumours were true and it’s actually Donkey Kong.

There’s so many unknowns about how Nintendo would go about the launching new hardware. When do they reveal it? Because that would likely have a knock on effect as to what they release for the current Switch during that timeframe.

I think Advance Wars will release early next year, probably with minimal advertising. They could always release that Metroid Prime Trilogy early next year, but dunno. Nintendo usually goes pretty quiet on big new releases in the lead up to new hardware because their teams are focusing on developing games for that.

@Grumblevolcano i believe Nintendo will release a new hardware with Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, Switch was released with Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, the remake of Link Awakening was released with Switch Lite, history will repeat itself with Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 and the Switch sucessor.

i like HD Rumble.

Given that announcement, we can now look forward to an indie world and then the real deal within about 4-5 weeks.

Between Mario Kart, Pokemon, EVO and now this, I've been absolutely feasting on news as of late. Crazy how I made that comment talking about how annoyingly quiet all of my favourite series have been news wise only a week or so ago and then each of those series put out banger trailer after banger trailer. Needless to say, I'm so hyped.

I know I've been kind of critical towards Splatoon 3, at least with what they've announced up to this point, but I won't mind watching the S3 Direct. Hopefully it will have enough stuff that sets it apart from its predecessor.

@Giancarlothomaz The video's been made private, you might want to delete your post here and in the Switch thread. Plus there's likely gonna be a recap article on Nintendo Life's home page anyway.

Well, now that the Splatoon 3 Direct has come and gone I'm ready for the next digital event.

Looks as though it'll be THQ Nordic.

The only game I'm aware of as announced as coming to Switch from them is the AEW game.
