Japanese gaming giant Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Direct presentation for Wednesday, 21 June and this time we’ll be treated to a 40-minute show jam-packed with forthcoming Switch games. We’ll also get to see more on Pikmin 4, it has confirmed.

So here’s how to watch it all unfold and what else you should expect.

How to watch Nintendo Direct

You can watch the show via the video at the top of this page.

Alternatively, it’ll be streamed on Nintendo’s own YouTube channels around the world, including the one for Nintendo of America.

What to expect

Nintendo has confirmed that the show will last for approximately 40 minutes and mainly feature Nintendo Switch games still to come this year. However, apart from Pikmin 4, no other titles have been teased as yet.

Considering that Nintendo has announced Everybody 1-2-Switch recently, which will release on 30 June, we fully expect to see more about that. We also hope to hear about additional classic titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online, for those with standard and Expansion Pack subscriptions.

As for big surprises, rumours of a new 2D Super Mario game have been doing the rounds of late. There has also been talk of a remake for the original Super Mario RPG. However, no actuals details have leaked, so we’ll take that with a pinch of salt for now.

We guess we’ll have to wait until the Nintendo Direct itself to find out more.
