The live stream will begin at 10am ET / 3pm BST and feature information on “upcoming Nintendo Switch titles exclusively from our publishing partners.”
The previous Partner Showcase was broadcast last month and featured 12 minutes of third-party game reveals including PuyoPuyo Teris 2, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, Fuser and more.
There has been huge fan demand this summer for information on Nintendo’s upcoming games, as disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic seemingly led to it being even more secretive than usual.
Although the platform holder’s full Direct presentations are now less frequent than when the initiative started in 2011, the Direct format has evolved with the addition of smaller presentations focused on indie games and individual franchises such as Pokémon and Smash Bros. DLC.
Recently the company has aired a pair of ‘Partner’ Directs, with presentations focused on games from third-party developers.
In June, the company’s president Shuntaro Furukawa reaffirmed Nintendo’s commitment to the Direct model, telling investors that it believed the live-streamed presentations were still an effective means of communication.
