Only days after streaming a dedicated Nintendo Direct for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Nintendo confirms the next Nintendo Direct.
Scheduled for June 28th a new Nintendo Direct Mini will run for approximately 25 minutes.
It will detail upcoming third-party titles expected to release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
Viewers can tune into the Nintendo Direct Mini, dubbed “Partner Showcase” on their official Youtube channel!
The Nintendo Direct Mini streams begin at the following times:
- [USA] 6:00 am PT | 9:00 ET (UTC-8 | UTC-5)
- [UK] 2:00 pm BST (UTC+1/GMT+1)
- [Japan] 10:00 pm JST (UTC+9)
The Japanese announcement confirms the Nintendo Direct Mini will be a pre-recorded showcase. Not live-streamed.

The “Partner Showcase” isn’t the standard Direct usually seen this time of year, so won’t include information on first-party games. Therefore don’t expect Mario, Zelda, Splatoon or Animal Crossing news to be revealed. This is likely a result of the annual E3 event being cancelled where Nintendo typically stream a full-length Nintendo Direct.
We can only assume news surrounding first-party titles will be revealed in their own Direct soon.
Will you be tuning in and watching the Nintendo Direct Mini? What are you hoping to see?
