Nintendo Direct Mini Announced for This Week

Latest on the next Nintendo Direct mini

A Nintendo Direct Mini will be broadcast tomorrow, June 28. It will focus on third-party partners, so don’t expect the likes of Mario, Zelda or other major Nintendo series to appear.

The ‘Partner Showcase’, which will be around 25 minutes long, will air on YouTube at 6am Pacific / 9am Eastern / 2pm UK / 11pm AEST.

Nintendo traditionally airs a major Nintendo Direct as part of E3 in June. However, with E3 cancelled in 2022, it’s unclear if Nintendo is delaying its own first-party showcase, or will announce its games in more piecemeal fashion this year.

No Man’s Sky, will release on Nintendo Switch this October.

Landing October 7, the Switch version of No Man’s Sky will come complete with all 20 updates that have transformed the game since its original PS4 and PC release back in 2016. This version is released in collaboration with Bandai Namco, and will be available both digitally and physically.

The last Nintendo broadcast was May’s Indie World show, which revealed the likes of Gunbrella, a Switch release for Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, and more.
