Nintendo Direct is happening at 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT. People who are waiting for the intended announcements can reportedly expect some news on Pokemon, Starfox and Legend of Zelda. Will the event be what everyone is expecting?


The next Nintendo Direct is expected to shed light on a number of things. But for those looking for more details on the company’s Wii U follow-up, the machine that’s codenamed “NX,” should get their hopes up. The same thing applies for any news on the company’s mobile push, according to Engadget. Nonetheless, the event will not fall short as several reports claimed that it should be more about the games to be released in spring and summer. For instance, there isn’t much news yet on Star Fox Zero following its delay, so Nintendo may have more to offer on that side.

According to another report from VG247, people should expect Nintendo to focus more on 3Ds and Wii U titles. While the company has a knock for discussing previously announced games and updates, people should know how Nintendo likes to keep surprises. During these events, the company also likes to announce titles that users can download right after the Nintendo Direct presentation. Many are expecting it to be the same for this event.

The report also added that since the Pokemon Nintendo Direct in the previous week was extremely short, there should be more news on Pokemon Sun and Moon. The game is expected to be released around the holiday season. More importantly, there are high hopes for more details Monster Hunter X localization along with the usual presentation of indie titles and news on amiibo.
