There will be a Nintendo Direct on Tuesday morning, September 13 at 10 a.m. ET, Nintendo has Just announced. It will also be a big game, with an estimated clock time of 40 minutes. We hope we hear about some of the biggest games that Nintendo has been quiet about for a while, especially with the holidays approaching.

We know that Nintendo does Metroid 4. How? Because every time they release their financials, there’s a tiny mention of it in the future listing section, along with a dreaded “TBA”. But if the gossip of those who correctly predicted this Direct to happen is correct, we might ultimately discover the latest adventures of Samus. And maybe, oh God please, some of those Zelda remasters that have been in the ether for so long.

The soothsayer Jeff Grubb very correctly called live as occurring “the week of the 12th”, in August. VGC then reported it was later verified on Tuesday the 13th by Nintendo inside Emily Rogers.

Grubb then protected a “Zelda blowout” for the Direct, suggesting we might finally have word on Wind Waker and Twilight Princessboth of which have long been known to be in redevelopment at Nintendo, with some even suggesting they’ve been finished and ready to ship a long time now.

Metroid Prime 4 is perhaps more of a long-shot, given how many iterations and developers this bad game seems to pass. But a solid word on that would be so good.

Don’t hold your Breath of the Wild 2of course, because it seems much more likely that this will be held back for the 2023 reveals, but with Splaton 3 on the shelves, and Pokemon Scarlet and Purple supported in their own direct, maybe they’ll tease us at least?

During this time at completely crazy news, this Nintendo Direct will not be simulcast worldwide, as… Nintendo UK has announced that they will not be broadcasting it via their YouTube channel as a “show of respect,to Her Majesty the Queen. We Brits are, I am told, in a “period of national mourning”, and as such streaming a video available in the country by nineteen other methods would be like spitting on your grave.

However, they will still post it on their YouTube channel an hour later. Because, as we all know, Queen Elizabeth II, biggest nintendo fan in the world, hated livestreaming, but was a big fan of previously uploaded YouTube videos Anothing else would be so disrespectful. Please, as a resident British journalist, let me tell you that hardly anyone here cares. It’s full of madness.

Anyway, if you want to dance on the Queen’s unburied coffin, you can watch the live via Nintendo’s YouTube channel and a second ahead through their Twitch. It starts at 10 a.m. ET or 7 a.m. PT.
