Confirmed: The next Nintendo Direct will take place tomorrow, the company has announced

Nintendo has confirmed its next Nintendo Direct digital event will take place on Tuesday, September 13.

The live stream will start at 7am PT / 3pm BST and feature “roughly 40 minutes of information mainly focused on Nintendo Switch games launching this winter”.

Nintendo UK won’t live stream tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct “as a mark of respect” to Queen Elizabeth II, it’s said.

The event had been long expected following multiple reports over the last weeks, some of which suggested the company will announce new Zelda and Metroid Prime remasters.

GamesBeat managing editor Mike Minotti and Grubb previously claimed that Zelda and Metroid ports would be part of the next direct, and the latter said this weekend he understands that’s still the case.

“We’ve heard that Zelda stuff will be there; the name of the next Zelda game and the HD ports of the Zelda games from Wii U. I hope that’s the case, it seems like that should be the case, that’s what we’ve heard.

“Also, Metroid Prime HD remasters should be coming out this holiday, so we should get that as well, and then there’s stuff like Fire Emblem that has been rumoured and seems like it makes a lot of sense, but I can’t confirm, and then stuff like EA announcing It Takes Two.

“It should be a pretty robust Direct and I’m looking forward to it.”

Wii U – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD E3 Trailer

Twilight Princess and Wind Waker were already given the HD treatment on Wii U and are now among just a handful of Nintendo’s last-gen games that haven’t been ported to Switch.

Meanwhile, Metroid Prime remasters have reportedly been coming for years, with one recognised insider claiming last November that Prime 1’s remaster was already completed and ready to be released.
