The dust has barely settled on the last Nintendo Direct presentation, but rumor has it another is coming as soon as next week.
Nacho Requena – editor of Spanish games magazine, Manual – teased in a recent Twitch stream that new announcements – this time from major publishers about third-party games – is slated for this coming Tuesday, 28th June 2022.
“We should have a Nintendo Direct this coming Tuesday,” Requena reportedly said, as translated by VGC. “This will be mainly focused on third-party games – that’s what I’ve been told to expect.
“I’ve also been told that some Persona game will be present, though I do not know which game,” Requena added. “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. ”
It’s the last sentence that’s particularly intriguing, and it has some excited fans hoping that that four-year-old game may be Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. We’ll have to wait and see on that, though.
Requena is the second industry insider to have made claims that a Nintendo Direct is coming next week, although that person, Sony Santa Monica’s Alanah Pearce, suggested it may arrive on June 29th instead.
Last week’s Nintendo Direct saw Xenoblade Chronicles 3 take center stage in a dedicated Nintendo Direct broadcast on Wednesday 22nd June.
