Nintendo Direct To Air June 18 At 10 AM Eastern
« on: June 17, 2024, 06:06:00 AM »

Emergency meeting in the Happening Bunker!

The Direct sign has been engaged for the first regular Direct of the year.

As promised during Nintendo's last financials, a Nintendo Direct focused on Switch games for the 2nd half of 2024 will air tomorrow. The presentation will begin at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT / 1500 CET, and is scheduled for roughly 40 minutes.

Nintendo is expected to fill out its second half lineup as there are currently no announced first party titles beyond July 13 (Nintendo World Championships - NES Edition). As mentioned in the original May announcement, the Direct will not contain discussion of the successor to the Switch.

Hoping for Switch ports of all the remaining Wii U-only 1st party titles (excluding Devil's 3rd):

- Yoshi's Woolly World
- Xenoblade X
- The 2 Zelda HD releases

If I had to pick just 1, I'd go with Yoshi. C'mon. Free it from Wii U/3DS jail. It's too good for that.
There was a Signature here. It's gone now.

There's a selfish part of me that wants the last few Wii U exclusives to remain exclusive, just to give that system some reason to have existed.  But aside from X the entire Xenoblade series is available for the Switch so why not give people the option to enjoy it all.  Due to the obscurity of the series before the Switch (late Gamestop exclusive Wii game, Wii U exclusive, 3DS port that requires the NEW 3DS) I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of fans have only played the series on the Switch so might as well make everything available to them.

Maybe I'm setting myself up for a letdown, but I'm hoping for a Hollow Knight: Silksong announcement- download it today!

If Metroid Prime 4 is still coming to the Switch this will finally be the moment it's revealed.  With how long that games been in development, it's either a final Switch going out with a bang title, or a killer app buy our new system after launch title.  So tomorrow will finally tell us what it's going to be.

Well, so much for that. -_-
