Nintendo Direct is a big thing for all Nintendo Switch fans since they get to see all the latest and upcoming video games heading to the console. Unfortunately, a recent report suggests that Nintendo is not planning a new Direct at all.

Don’t Expect A New Nintendo Direct

Nintendo Direct Release Date

According to Jeff Gubb of Venture Beat, it seems like Nintendo is telling developers and other partners not to wait for Direct. As for the first-party announcement and reveal, Nintendo might be following the same strategy as what they did with the latest Paper Mario: The Origami King announcement.

“Earlier this month, I reported Nintendo isn’t planning a Direct for June. As an update to that, I’ll add that Nintendo isn’t planning a Direct at all for now. It’s telling development partners not to wait for a Direct even if they have a big announcement,” said Jeff Grubb in his article.

The last Direct we got was a Mini on March 26, 2020, where they revealed Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, Shinsekai: Into the Depths, Bravely Default 2, and many more. What are your expectations from Nintendo for the next possible video game reveals?

June is indeed a hot month for video games. We are expecting big announcements from Sony, Microsoft, and even Nintendo. Speaking of Sony, the next big PlayStation 5 reveal event is rumored for June 4, 2020, as per Jeff Grubb and that it will feature a lot of games.
