Nintendo hosting 40-minute Direct on June 21, focusing on upcoming games

Focused on games coming this year, including Pikmin 4

Nintendo has announced that a new Direct showcase will stream on June 21st at 10am ET/7am PT.

Announced via Twitter, Nintendo confirmed the Direct will run approximately 40 minutes long. As with many previous Directs, the company is keeping many of the awaited announcements a secret for the time being. However, fans can expect the Direct to focus “mainly on Nintendo Switch titles launching this year.”

One of the games Nintendo notes is Pikmin 4. The long-awaited sequel in the Pikmin series launches on July 21st for Switch. With this in mind, Nintendo will likely use the opportunity to show off the title one last time before its release. We’ll likely see new gameplay and mechanics during the Direct.

Aside from Pikmin 4, Nintendo’s Everybody 1-2-Switch launches on June 30th. Otherwise, the rest of 2023’s release schedule remains a mystery. Given the timing, it’s likely Nintendo will paint a clearer picture of what the year holds for Switch, especially after The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The June 21st Nintendo Direct kicks off at 10am ET/7 am PT. Fans can check out the live stream on Nintendo’s website and on YouTube.
