And it’s probably not gonna be a small presentation either. No, this is a 40 minute Nintendo Direct, with enough time to show dozens of new trailers and announcements, including detailed looks at all kinds of upcoming titles. So whether you’re after Tears of the Kingdom or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe or Switch Online news, it’s probable this is going to be your lucky day.
But what other games are going to show up here?
After all, it can’t just be Tears of the Kingdom, right?
Well no. It certainly can’t. Unless the Direct is mostly Zelda related, it’s not going to be 40 minutes of information on a single game like that.
What’s more, while things like Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Pikmin 4, the Mario Kart 8 DLC and the ever delayed Advance Wars remake are probable inclusions, those won’t be the only games there either. There just aren’t enough of them to fill out the schedule.
Hence we’re probably going to get all manner of new reveals too. New Mario sports games, new DLC titles, a couple of remakes… heck, we’ve even heard rumours that Kid Icarus Uprising could be coming Switch ways at some point or another.
So there are definitely some exciting possibilities here, especially from Nintendo’s lesser known series.
Regardless, if you’re interested in learning when the presentation will take place, check out the relevant times via the tables below:

Then come back tomorrow at 10pm UK time to see us liveblog the whole event! It’s going to be amazing for sure!
