Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase Set for June 28

Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase June 28, 2022 6/28 6/28/2022 third-party games 25 minutes 9 a.m. ET 6 a.m. PT

Nintendo has announced a Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase to air on YouTube on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT. The Nintendo Direct Mini will contain about 25 minutes of information on upcoming third-party Nintendo Switch games. There is no mention of whether it will contain any first-party news, so it is best not to expect any announcements involving Mario, The Legend of Zelda, or any other key Nintendo franchises.

With 24 hours to go until the June 28 Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, the time is now to go wild with speculation and make it completely your fault when you wind up disappointed with what is actually shown. For instance, a lot of Square fans have been expecting a console announcement for the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series, and it would make sense for Nintendo Switch to lead the charge on that front since all six games originally launched on Nintendo platforms. (It wouldn’t hurt to announce Tactics Ogre: Reborn either.) Additionally, Atlus recently announced Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal ports, and past leaks have claimed that at least P3P and P4G will come to Switch.

Will either of those series actually appear at the June 28 Nintendo Direct Mini? And will Hollow Knight: Silksong finally receive a release date following its Xbox Game Pass reveal? Who can say? But considering the event is 25 minutes long, you should expect at least one or two exciting announcements that have nothing to with the Breath of the Wild sequel.
