Nintendo could be gearing up to host another Direct broadcast in September. The last major Nintendo Direct took place in June during E3 2021, with the headline announcement being the unveiling of a brand new Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 trailer. That trailer for BoTW 2 was the first since the game’s unveiling at E3 2019, and it also provided a release date for the highly anticipated new Zelda adventure.

And right after that blockbuster showing Mario’s house, it’s tipped to have another Nintendo Direct broadcast in September.

This news comes courtesy of leaker Samus Hunter, who in a thread on Twitter said there should be a Nintendo Direct around the time WarioWare launches on the Switch.

WarioWare Get It Together launches on September 10, so we could see a Direct airing around that time.

And Samus Hunter has given Switch fans an idea of ​​what announcements Nintendo has in store, saying the broadcast will focus on titles already announced.

The leaker said September’s Nintendo Direct will likely focus on Metroid Dread, but there may also be announcements about Advance Wars and Mario Party.

The September Direct also appears to be where the final Smash Bros DLC character will be revealed. While in terms of third party announcements, the rumored new Resident Evil game for the Switch could be unveiled.

This Resident Evil game is thought to be called Resident Evil Outbreak, but don’t let the name fool you – rumor has it that it’s in fact the third Resident Evil Revelations game.

Reportedly, Rebecca Chambers will be the lead character and exclusive to Nintendo Switch, launching in Q4 2021.

As for other announcements, a new Kirby game could also be revealed, just like the next game from Monolith Productions.

While the September Direct may even provide an update on Bayonetta 3, which last showed up at The Game Awards 2017.

On Twitter, Samus Hunter said: “A #NintendoDirect is planned for September, around the time WarioWare launches.”

The leaker went on to say: “The focus game will definitely be Metroid Dread, while Advance Wars and Mario Party will have sections dedicated to some new features.

“Several major updates are also planned, the aforementioned Animal Crossing, the reveal of the latest character in Smash and the new Hyrule Warriors story DLC. Third parties will also play an important role, Capcom must Resident Evil for the switch.

“If the plans for Splatoon 3 don’t change, marketing for the title should start around that time.

“I have doubts in the news about the Zelda BotW sequel, except for a small message that we will see it in a few months.

“As new announcements, a Kirby project is very likely.

“To wrap up a Nintendo developed title, Monolith is in a really good place with their project, as the cutscenes have been finalized for a few months and a lot of the music has been worked on over the past few weeks, so the project is going to be the into final phase.

“Bayonetta 3, which I have already mentioned, should also be in a similar situation.

“There are also other titles in progress, but they are planned for a generic 2022 or later.”

The leaker clarified that the predicted announcements are “my guess based on some data I have in my possession” and that “it’s too early at this point to pass them on as confirmed for that presentation.”

Samus Hunter also claimed that if the rumors of the Nintendo-Microsoft partnership are true, the September Direct could be the place to announce it.

It was rumored that Game Pass Ultimate could be coming to the Switch in the future, but that remains to be seen.

As always with rumours, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt until official confirmation.

But even if half of the announced announcements come out in the next Direct, it’s going to be a pretty special broadcast.

Before the September Direct airs, Nintendo is also being tipped to host another Indie World presentation.
