Nintendo has just rounded off the third of its Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcases, with a focus on third-party titles coming to Switch. During the presentation, the lid was lifted on Monster Hunter Rise, Monster Hunter Stories 2, Fitness Boxing 2 and Ori And The Will Of The Wisps.

While many fans are hopeful that the company will return to the full-fat Direct broadcasts the company is known for – especially as COVID-19 has wiped out gaming events like E3, during which these presentations would normally take place – it would seem that the 'Mini' format is here to stay, at least for 2020.

During the presentation, it was confirmed that we'll be getting more small-scale Partner Showcases this year, although it wasn't clear precisely how many will be coming.

The ongoing pandemic has clearly caused havoc with Nintendo's schedule this year, which is no doubt why we've seen games like Pikmin 3 Deluxe get shadow-dropped without warning.

Are you keen on more small-scale Nintendo Direct broadcasts, or do you want something meatier? Let us know with a comment.
