    The rumors were real! A Nintendo Direct is on the way, in miniature form. The very first Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase will be airing on July 20th, set to show titles that Nintendo has in the works. It'll focus on "updates on a small group of previously announced Nintendo Switch games", from Nintendo's development and publishing partners, likely standing in for what would have been this year's E3 Direct, just scaled back slightly. The Direct Mini will air at 3pm UK time or at 7am PT. Be sure to catch the broadcast, or if you can't, check back here to see what Nintendo reveals.

    Hopefully we get at least a teaser trailer for Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3. Also a release date for No More Heroes 3 and New Pokemon Snap would be good.

    It's about Partners and shit. So Fortnite, Minecraft and more Indie games that doesn't look nor has the same gameplay of slowing down, rewinding and wall jumping.

    Did you guys not read the tweet?

    This is a "Partners" direct meaning no first-party games. No Mario. No Zelda.

    Focusing on something doesn't mean it's exclusively for that thing. There's some minor chance of first-party content.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Also if this is from partners, feels more like it'll be second-party content.

    We are talking about Nintendo. When they say, for example, that "no new fighter would be introduced on tomorrow's direct" it's cause no new fighter would be introduced on tomorrow's direct. When they tell us that they are gonna do a Direct for third-party titles, is cause they are gonna do a Direct for third-party. That means no first-party content.
    We are gonna have to wait for another update for that.

    Well, if we're going to focus on second- and third-party games, I look forward to some follow-up on Bravely Default II.

    I still believe Nintendo is keeping everything close to the chest for a little longer. I think they will have a big direct come the fall to help combat the PS5 and XBSX.

    Technically every game I listed is still on the table then, save perhaps New Pokemon Snap if Game Freak isn't considered a "partner."

    I think the only announcement at that point which could possibly take any wind out of Sony's/MS' sails is Switch Pro. Short of that, Nintendo needs games actually releasing for the holiday season, not just game trailers.

    Calling this a "partners" direct is a real low-key way of saying, "We have nothing to do with this hot garbage except taking our 30% from it, thank you".
