There are a number of games that could appear. Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series and Live a Live will both be out in July 2022, for example. We could also see announcements for titles that are currently Japan-exclusives, like GrimGrimoire OnceMore.
The last Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase aired back in October 2020 and didn’t just focus on third-party games. That installment also did bring up some titles Nintendo published, like Bravely Default 2 and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. However, it also highlighted games like Hitman 3 Cloud Version, No More Heroes entries, and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town.
The Nintendo Direct Mini will show third-party games on June 28, 2022 at 6 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET/3 p.m. CET/10 p.m. JST. Prior to this showcase, a Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct appeared in June 2022.
