Thursday’s Nintendo Direct live stream begins shortly, and you can watch it via the video embed on this page.
One new game announcement has seemingly leaked already ahead of the Nintendo Direct, after Nintendo itself listed the unannounced game on its website. An updated release date for Bayonetta 3 might also suggest an appearance.
The new Direct will also likely include a new controller, after a US government listing suggested one would be revealed this week.
Nintendo Direct E3 2021
The last full Nintendo Direct presentation took place during E3 2021 in June and revealed a number of new games.
Most notable of these was Metroid Dread, the first mainline 2D entry in 19 years, which will end a story arc that began in the 80s.
The Direct concluded with the first look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 since its announcement two years ago. The sequel will feature an expanded world, Nintendo said, and is targeting a release in 2022.
