Another Nintendo Direct, this time for Switch and 3DS, is coming tomorrow

Nintendo has been going hard lately. Shortly before Gamescom, the company debuted a new video highlighting a number of indie games coming to Switch, then a week later, it hosted an Nindies Showcase for summer 2018 to show off even more indie games. As if that weren’t enough, the company last week premiered a Nintendo Direct dedicated entirely to its new mobile game, Dragalia Lost, and now another Nintendo Direct has been scheduled for this week. Apparently, there’s a lot to talk about in the world of Nintendo games.

We don’t have a ton of information on the new Nintendo Direct that was announced today, but we know it’s going to be a long one. Nintendo says that the whole presentation will run for 35 minutes, and we’ll hear about new titles coming to both the Switch and the 3DS. The 3DS portion of the Direct might be a little light, but we’ll almost certainly hear at least a little about the incoming port of Luigi’s Mansion.

On the other hand, there’s a lot this Direct could cover when it comes to the Switch. We’ve got Super Mario Party coming up in October, so expect to see that. Of course, there’s always Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and though that game already got its own Direct, we could see a character reveal or two. Pokemon Let’s Go will almost certainly make some kind of appearance as well, given its November release date and the fact that Pokemon is one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises.

One thing that Nintendo might choose to talk about is Switch Online. Even though the service has been detailed pretty extensively at this point, we still don’t have a solid launch date. Nintendo has only said that Switch Online will be going live in the second half of September, so this Nintendo Direct seems like the perfect time to finally announce a proper date.

One thing’s for sure: with this Direct clocking in at 35 minutes, Nintendo will definitely be covering a lot of ground. The new Nintendo Direct will premiere tomorrow, Spetember 6, at 3 PM Pacific/6 PM Eastern. You can watch it over on Nintendo’s website or via the video embedded above.
