It is occurring people, it is lastly occurring! After preserving us at nighttime for months on finish (bar some rumours which had us satisfied of its fact), Nintendo has at the moment introduced that it is going to be internet hosting a full Direct Showcase tomorrow (September thirteenth) at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST.
Because of phrase from Large Bomb journalist and all-round hearsay machine Jeff Grubb, we have now been led to imagine that there’s going to be numerous Zelda content material for us to get into with this one. It appears doubtless that we’ll hear about Swap ports for both one or each of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess, and will tomorrow lastly be the day after we get to listen to one thing extra about Breath of the Wild 2? Simply give us a title not less than Nintendo, please!
There’s additionally phrase that tomorrow’s Direct may see the reveal that Metroid Prime is coming to the Swap, with rumours of that individual port seemingly having been round because the starting of time itself.
However what else will we see? Will there be information of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp? May we hear about Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC? Will we all know extra about an upcoming Mario recreation, Odyssey 2 or in any other case? Is there much more Zelda information that we would have missed?
A few of our fantastic writers right here at Nintendo Life have shared their predictions for what would possibly simply seem within the Direct beneath. However do not simply take our phrase for it, we wish to hear from you too! Fill out the ballot on the backside of this text then take to the feedback to inform us what you’re enthusiastic about!
Let the predictions start!

Oh, how I’d like to be opposite in my predictions and say that I truthfully imagine this Direct will see the Swap launch of one thing large and surprising. The very fact of the matter is, I’d be mendacity if I mentioned I wasn’t excited in regards to the almost definitely eventualities.
Wind Waker and Twilight Princess ports apart, I’m actually hoping for some Breath of the Wild 2 information. With Splatoon 3 out of the best way and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet on the horizon, Nintendo wants to offer us some extra info on their subsequent large title, and why shouldn’t it’s the one about which I’m essentially the most excited? I feel a full launch date remains to be unlikely, however a brand new trailer and official title should be on the playing cards, proper?
It is for a similar cause that I’m holding out for some information on the subsequent Mario Odyssey-esque recreation. Placing apart my very own private infatuation with the 3D launch, Odyssey was an enormous title for the Swap and with Tremendous Mario 3D All-Stars not coming near scratching that itch, Large-N would do effectively to maintain our love for the plumber on good phrases earlier than the dreaded film drops…

With the hearsay mill churning out all the same old suspects (which – don’t get me flawed – I’d like to see materialise), there are a few lower-tier titles that might make my day had been they to point out up. Grezzo has been awfully quiet for the previous couple of years, and after eyeing the approaching thirtieth anniversary of The Frog For Whom The Bell Tolls (the Japan-only Sport Boy title, Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, which served because the template for Hyperlink’s Awakening), I’d love to see a remake of that on Swap in the identical cute type.
The arrival of Sport Boy titles on Nintendo Swap On-line has been rumoured for some time and would possibly make sense as a option to bolster the bottom providing. Having gone again to Wave Race 64 lately, it’s fired up my enthusiasm for a brand new entry in that collection, or Excitebike, or 1080, or (whisper it) F-Zero. Or Rhythm Heaven. It’s time for extra Rhythm Heaven!
And past first-party, there was that hearsay that Rocksteady’s Arkham Assortment was coming to Swap. I may get behind that.

I all the time like to enter a Nintendo Direct with low expectations for concern of being disenchanted, however I confess – my coronary heart wants some extra Hole Knight: Silksong in my life. If we’re feeling additional daring, how a few launch date? I’m going to be let down, aren’t I?
Anyway, for some issues that appear extra reasonable: it’s been some time since we’ve heard something in regards to the Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake. I’ll maintain bringing it up on each single certainly one of these posts till we get a brand new trailer or one thing. And, sticking with RPGs I feel we would get a have a look at Xenoblade Chronicle 3’s first Season Move replace. It’s due within the winter, in any case!
Actually, although, Directs are the place I get most excited for the issues I’d by no means predict. I really like surprises, in order a lot as I’d be thrilled to see the Metroid Prime remake come true (and I’ll drop cash on it so quick, having by no means performed it on GameCube or Wii), a model new title or port of a hidden, arduous to search out gem can be a blast. Present us what you’ve bought, Nintendo.

Like most Nintendo Directs, I really feel like I may bash out a complete bunch of predictions after which none of them turn into true. Ain’t that the best way? That mentioned, the rumours surrounding potential ports of Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Metroid Prime are so widespread in the mean time, I type of really feel like there has to be one thing there, proper?
In any other case, I’d very very similar to to see some type of replace on Metroid Prime 4; possibly only a quick teaser? One thing to inform me that it’s nonetheless within the works and on its manner. I’d additionally like to see the Swap get some tasty horror video games within the coming months, as a result of it seems like the opposite platforms are getting all the nice horror video games in the mean time (hello, Resident Evil 4 remake). For a remaining, fairly area of interest prediction/want, it will be completely unimaginable if developer ZA/UM got here out with some type of sequel to Disco Elysium… One can solely hope.
As for this winter — which is outwardly what the Direct will likely be primarily centered on — I’m good, y’know? I don’t wish to see rather more of video games like Bayonetta 3, Mario + Rabbids Spark of Hope, and Sonic Frontiers. Actually nothing on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, thanks very a lot. I do know at this level whether or not I’m going to get them or not, so one other trailer isn’t going to alter my thoughts.
Are you excited for the Direct? Are there any titles that we have now missed? Tell us within the feedback beneath!
