With games such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Bayonetta 3 in the pipeline and franchises like Metroid constantly being rumored, this Nintendo Direct is a big deal.

Alanah Pearce has become one of gaming’s most respected and well-liked personalities and has been at Santa Monica Studio for the last two years. On a recent stream, she divulged info regarding the reported new Nintendo Direct’s date: “29th, yeah, June 29th, Nintendo Direct. It’s not technically a leak because Nintendo didn’t tell me, which is how I make that call, but also I’m not leaking anything that’s in it.”

If this is indeed the case, then the presentation will be quite soon and may serve as the full stop for the summer’s gaming news festivities.

Pearce is an accomplished video game journalist and it would only be natural that she would have various sources from within the games industry. So whilst this should be taken as a leak for now, until we hear from Nintendo’s mouth, there’s every chance that this date is accurate.
