A Nintendo Direct Mini is happening tomorrow

Again, Nintendo taunts its fanbase by announcing a Nintendo Direct, just not one you might be expecting. A Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase is on the way, giving us a 25-minute look at upcoming third-party games for the Nintendo Switch. The Direct Mini will air tomorrow, June 28th, at 6am PT, or 2pm BST. Stay tuned to see what games will be revealed or updated upon, during our live coverage of the event.

So, the rumors were true.
Was hoping for a long Direct with 1st party games announced + more info on Breath of the Wild 2, maybe Game Boy Switch Online?

But all we get is a less than 10 minute direct mini 3rd party showcase.

Meanwhile on my PS4 Pro:
GTA Trio, Crash Bandicoot and Zero Dawn will keep me busy anyways. Hopefully until October?

Think the Nintendo Direct was October last year and that was good.
I could be wrong though. Could be September. Oh well.

Yeah, but that's Fire Emblem. Nintendo trips all over them self trying to find ways to give us more.
That was only after Awakening turned out to be a massive surprise hit in the West; there had been some previous games released here before (and one of them even had Casual mode, too - Awakening was not the first game to have it), and Marth and Roy had also been in SSB Melee, but the series had never advanced past being a niche franchise here.
I vaguely remember hearing that Awakening was originally going to be Nintendo's final try at a localised FE game, but they never expected it to sell so well.

It was only after Awakening sold like gangbusters that we started getting essentially spammed with Fire Emblem stuff, since Nintendo was taking advantage of this newfound mainstream-ness.

That was pretty fucking good. Persona 3, 4, and 5 coming to the Switch. NieR: Automata also coming to the Switch. And my favorite announcement of all, the MMBN Legacy Collection coming to the Switch next year. This Direct Mini was pretty good imo just because of that alone.
