Excitement builds up in the gaming world as Nintendo officially announces a new 40-minute Direct scheduled for June 21st at 4:00 PM (Spanish peninsular time). This event will focus on revealing information about games coming to Nintendo Switch throughout this year.
The news has caught many by surprise, as Nintendo continues its tradition of announcing Directs without prior notice. With less than 24 hours until the broadcast, important details such as the date, time, and duration of the event have already been confirmed. Additionally, it has been announced that new details about Pikmin 4, a highly anticipated game set for release on July 21st, will be revealed.
The Direct promises to be thrilling, as the 40-minute duration leaves room for speculation about the possibility of seeing other games planned for both this year and 2024. In recent days, rumors have circulated regarding the potential games that may be showcased during the event. Among them, a mention of a new 2D Mario title and a remake of Super Mario RPG stands out. Considering the success of the Super Mario Bros. animated film in cinemas, it would be surprising if Nintendo did not capitalize on the opportunity to release at least one game featuring the iconic mustachioed character.
Other rumors point to a complete HD-2D remake of Chrono Trigger, as well as the possible appearance of Shin Megami Tensei V: Complete Edition. At this stage, it is clear that the exclusive lineup for Nintendo Switch in the second half of 2023 is practically empty, with Pikmin 4 being the only confirmed release. Fans eagerly await the announcement of new titles, especially one that can compete during the holiday season.
Nintendo’s Direct on June 21st promises thrills and revelations that will keep gamers on the edge of their seats. The event is scheduled for 4:00 PM, and fans can tune in to the live stream on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel.
