The UK-based retailer GAME may have lifted the lid on a Nintendo Direct presentation ahead of schedule. Now, to add to this, VentureBeat staff writer, reporter and verified Twitter user Jeff Grubb has published an article claiming a Nintendo Indie World video will "likely" be broadcast on 18th March, and a proper Nintendo Direct is expected to follow it on 26th March.

it’s in the final stages of putting the video presentation together. That’s based on what we’re hearing as well as some other indicators.

So, just to make it clear, not one – but two – video presentations are expected to air before the end of this month. While Jeff says he "can't confirm" the first-party titles that will be shown, he does say the next presentation will take a much "broader" look at Nintendo's upcoming software line-up.

The company is also expected to continue to rely "heavily on remasters and ports" and will bring in more support from third-party publishers and developers. He goes onto state that it's "definitely happening" and thinks we'll hear more about it early next week.

Nintendo is deep into the process of putting the event together based on what I’ve heard. It has decided many of the third-party games it will include in the event. So it’s definitely happening — and almost certainly before the end of March.
