Nintendo Direct Mini: Most Important Announcements and Games

Update: A 25-minute Nintendo Direct Mini aired this morning and was jam-packed with games, trailers, and announcements for Nintendo Switch owners. Among the biggest announcements: Persona games are finally coming to Switch, a number of demos and games are now available on the eShop, and we finally know when we’ll be playing Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. You can rewatch the entirety of Direct Mini in the video below and hit the links for our full coverage of the event.

Original story: Nintendo has announced the next Nintendo Direct Mini event. It takes place today, June 28, and begins at 6:00 a.m. PT. While we’re not sure exactly what will be featured, Nintendo has said it will focus on third-party games, which means we shouldn’t expect to see Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 or Pokemon Scarlet/Violet. The “Mini” stream will instead contain around 25 minutes of information on upcoming third-party Switch games, and it looks like a detail of that has already leaked. Here’s what you need to know to watch the Direct as soon as it starts.

Now Playing: Nintendo Direct Mini: partner presentation – June 2022

What time does the June 2022 Nintendo Direct Mini start?

The event begins today, Tuesday, June 28 at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET, but it will be an on-demand stream, just a live stream, according to Nintendo’s tweet. You can watch it on YouTube.

This is the second Nintendo Direct in as many weeks, as a June 22 Nintendo Direct event focused on Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which will be released in July.

What to expect

Nintendo hasn’t given any indication of which games might appear during the June 27 event, but some possibilities include Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Bayonetta 3. The former seems like a safe bet after the leak of the release date of Sparks of Hope on the Ubisoft store. There are plenty of other possibilities as well, such as Sports Story, Hollow Knight: Silksong (which finally resurfaced earlier this month at the Xbox Not-E3 conference), and more. Rumors have also suggested that Nier Automata and Persona could be included in the Direct.

Rumor has it there could be another Nintendo Direct on June 29 which many hope will be Nintendo’s traditional summer showcase, but that’s just speculation so far. Journalist Jeff Grubb of GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb said Nintendo will be hosting several summer events this year, but it’s possible this event will cap off its plans for the month.
