Last week, Nacho Requena, the editor of Spanish games magazine Manual, correctly predicted that a Nintendo Direct was scheduled for June 28, and that it would mainly focus on third-party games.
And on Monday, the Switch maker confirmed plans to host a Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase this Tuesday, offering roughly 25 minutes of information on upcoming third-party titles.

ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “I’ve also been told that some Persona game will be present, though I don’t know which game,” Requena said last week on the subject of the Nintendo Direct.
“I’ve also been told there will be another game that has been available for some time on other platforms… it’s been available for four years now.”
Taro expressed his enthusiasm for bringing the game to Switch during a Square Enix presentation at E3 2018.
The original Nier was released in 2010 and an updated version, officially titled Nier Replicant ver1.22474487139, was released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC last year.
Following its release, a datamine unearthed references to ‘NX’ graphics settings within the game’s code (NX is the development codename for Switch), leading to speculation that the remaster could be planned for Nintendo’s console.
