Nintendo Direct

Nintendo has announced the date of their next Nintendo Direct, and it will take place tomorrow at 3 P.M. PT. It will be roughly 40 minutes long and mainly focus on Nintendo Switch games, which is the biggest thing to take away from this. This is because the reason that Nintendo is hosting a Nintendo Direct tomorrow is that they're on the clock. It's either host it tomorrow or have a big surprises ruined by the U.S. government because of the filings they previously made.

The last Nintendo Direct was at E3, with the one before that taking place in February. The coming Direct marks only the third one this year, which means that Nintendo should have a lot to show for us. I mean, it's 40 minutes, right? We have to get something.

What's in store for the latest Nintendo Direct?

Well, that something will include a new Nintendo Switch controller that's coming, so we'll probably hear something about that. It's also probably the biggest reason we're getting a Direct tomorrow. Why? Because the US government will be revealing the controller in full by Friday if they don't due to the nature of the filing via the FCC. Of course, Nintendo almost definitely planned this from the beginning, but it's much more dramatic if we pretend that their hand is being forced, so let's go with that.

Eurogamer has also stated that Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles are coming to Nintendo Switch Online, which would be awesome. If Nintendo is going all-in, the controller might not be a Joy-Con replacement. Instead, it might possibly a retro N64 controller with the addition of the Nintendo 64 to Nintendo Switch Online, eh? We'll have to see, I guess.

Maybe something cool like the recent addition of Bluetooth finally being added to the Switch? I don't want to suggest something completely absurd, but maybe we'll get a Switch store update or even... folders. I know, I know, I'm completely insane, but let me dream!

In related news, the Metroid Dread amiibo 2-pack will now be launching on November 5 in the UK and Europe compared with Metroid Dread's October 8th release date. While that's a bummer European Metroid fans, at least we'll almost certainly find out more info about Metroid Dread tomorrow, so that's something, right?
