Nintendo finally announced the first Nintendo Direct of 2020 and… it’s already here! The Nintendo Direct Mini is now available on March 26, 2020, and people will finally get to hear about new Switch games immediately.
Here’s the official link to the presentation.
While this is billed as a Nintendo Driect Mini, it still ended up being about twenty-five minutes long. No details about which new Switch games were revealed were announced ahead of its appearance. However, Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a likely candidate to show up, as it has a 2020 release window and was recently rated in South Korea.
While this is the first standard Direct, there have been some other Nintendo presentations that were focused on specific titles over the last few months. First, there was a Pokemon Direct back in January 9, 2020. That revealed the Expansion Pass. There was also a February 20, 2020 Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct that only brought up things people needed to know about the new game. We also had an Indie World Showcase on March 17, 2020 that went over a bunch of games from smaller developers that we’ll see on the Nintendo Switch in the next few weeks and months.
The first Nintendo Direct Mini is immediately available.
