Another Nintendo Direct on the way?
It’s worth remembering that this new broadcast was announced amid rumors that a big Nintendo Direct is supposedly happening at the end of this month. The company often uses this June period — known as the “E3 season” — to announce news of its titles to fans.
Multiple sources point out that a broadcast would be scheduled for June 29th, and that it should focus on launches scheduled for the second half of 2022 and beyond. The rumors started with a statement by journalist Alanah Pierce (former Santa Monica Studios), who says she believes Big N will hold a live event on this date.
Afterwards, the VGC website corroborated the information, claiming that it heard from some sources that Nintendo has plans to do something on June 29th. The fact that it has a program focused on Xenoblade Chronicles 3 does not exclude the possibility of having a larger broadcast next week.
