Nintendo has not officially announced when the next Nintendo Direct will be.

But rumor has it that the next Nintendo Direct will air on Tuesday 7th or Wednesday 8th September.

The September 7 date was suggested after the creators of Xenoblade Chronicles, Monolith Soft, announced that their site would be down for maintenance.

The Monolith website will be taken offline on September 7 at 2pm Pacific Time, 5pm East and 10pm BST.

And this has caught the attention of many Switch fans.

First, because this is the time Directs is known to have aired in the past.

And second, because it’s rumored that Monolith Soft is about to release a brand new Xenoblade Chronicles game.

It’s believed this downtime could allow Monolith to update its site ahead of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 reveal.

If there is no Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, September 7, the broadcast may take place on Wednesday, September 8.

That’s according to insider Markomaro who tweeted: “September 8 is a safe bet for a Nintendo Direct. Despite the strong lineup Ninty will have there with a few unannounced games (with the new Monolith project being the big announcement), I’m more excited about the third party and collaborations it will show there.”


As mentioned, a new Xenoblade game is believed to be announced during the next Nintendo Direct.

While the reveal of the final Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character may seem anything but obvious, the final Fighters Pass 2 character is set to arrive before the end of this year.

Will Nintendo finally make fans’ dreams come true and add Waluigi, or will there be another surprising new addition to Smash Bros?

Another possible announcement is the unveiling of a new Resident Evil game that has reportedly been in the works for a while.

According to the rumor mill, this new Resi game is called Resident Evil Outrage and it’s Resident Evil Revelations 3 anything but in name.

Resident Evil Outrage will reportedly star in Rebecca Chambers, who was in the cast for the original game.

Elsewhere, fans could get updates on already announced games like Splatoon 3.

Although there will certainly be plenty of people hoping for updates to Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4 that haven’t been seen in a Direct for years.

The Nintendo Direct for September 2021 could also reveal a new console that will be added to the retro gaming collection that ships with Switch Online.

And it is believed that Game Boy and Game Boy Color games will be added to the service in the coming weeks.
