Nintendo has its own reveal schedule – but when could we hear from the company again? Another Nintendo Direct will be streamed on September 23 and will give fans a look at upcoming Nintendo Switch titles.

Nintendo has been playing by its own rules for quite a while now – from the Wii, to the Wii U, to the Switch, one thing has remained consistent: The Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo’s pre-recorded shows usually make an appearance at E3 and other big industry events, but they can also drop with little warning and always give fans something to speculate about.

Now in September, and with the most recent Pokemon Presents and Indie World events in our rearview mirror, here’s all we know about the next Nintendo Direct.

When is the Nintendo Direct presentation?

The next Nintendo Direct will be live-streamed on September 23. Nintendo’s presentation is set to last 40 minutes long and will give us a new look at upcoming winter titles for the Nintendo Switch.

The event kicks off at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET / 11 p.m. BST Thursday.

How to Watch Nintendo Direct

The Nintendo Direct set for September 23 can be viewed on Nintendo’s YouTube channel.

Rumors have also suggested that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 could be coming, with franchise developer Monolith announcing it’ll take its site down for maintenance on September 8. It’s previously been reported that the game is targeting a 2022 release but could be revealed as soon as late 2021.


With one last fighter to be revealed of Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s second Fighter Pass by the end of the year, there’s every chance we’ll get at least a development update. Could it really be Doomguy?

There’s also the possibility of an update on the Nintendo Switch OLED, which arrives on the same day as Metroid Dread.
