Since last month, rumors of a new Nintendo Direct along with many of the new upcoming titles have been circulating. However, with just a week to go, there has been no sign of one. The last Nintendo Direct happened at E3 2021 in June. Since Nintendo was absent in the Tokyo Game Show 2021, fans expect that the next upcoming event is a Nintendo Direct.

Recent developments with Nintendo seem to suggest that a Nintendo Showcase might be coming soon to us. Nintendo has had a patent for a new controller, and while we do not know what this new controller is, the gaming giant’s short-term confidentiality expires on the 24th of September. While this was set to expire only in March of 2022, Twitter user RostiResetEra brought us the information that it will be happening much sooner.

New Controller Reveal

  • In light of this, speculations of the new controller will be revealed on the 24th of September and that too in a Nintendo Direct event. While there is just a couple of days for the 24th, Nintendo just has to make an announcement a day before for the event.
  • In addition, a showcase on the 24th might be possible since a few important Nintendo releases are coming up, namely the Metroid Dread, and this might be a time when they would plan to reveal the final trailer.
  • Other rumors have been going around that an Alan Wake Remastered is also in the works. Further, the OLED console is launching in October as well. All this information seems to support the speculation that a Nintendo Direct is happening this week!
