Nintendo Direct fans are just weeks away from the next big batch of announcements from the House of Mario. We’re fast approaching the second half of the year and the summer, and for gamers that can only mean one thing – E3. After a hiatus last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the iconic gaming expo is making a return this year as a digital event – and Nintendo are already confirmed to be taking part.
The June Direct is historically where Nintendo makes its biggest announcements of the year, with the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct being one for the ages.
That Direct announced Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, Banjo Kazooie for Smash Bros, The Witcher 3 Switch port and much, much more.
And Nintendo Switch fans could have found out what’s in store for the upcoming E3 2021 Nintendo Direct.
As reported IBTimes, industry insider Samus Hunter may have revealed some of the announcements Nintendo has planned for E3.
The leaker teased Ninty has “big plans in store”, but if you were hoping for an update on the much-rumoured Switch Pro or Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 you’re unfortunately out of luck.
Samus Hunter didn’t mention either of these highly anticipated projects in their leak.
However, on Twitter @SamusHunter2 did drop a few major leaks for E3 2021.
They shared a mocked-up image for the Nintendo E3 2021 Direct, and teased announcements on Splatoon 3, the Zelda 35th Anniversary and Smash Bros Online Tournaments.
The leaker also said: “Less than two months #E32021
Last week they told me that #Nintendo has big plans in store for this year, but Covid is making things difficult to organize.
“Unfortunately, due to the number of partners, I cannot confirm whether all plans will come to fruition, we will know on May 6.
“I heard that they are trying to organize some tournaments, one of Smash and one to publicize Splatoon 3, in a couple of weeks we will find out if the project will succeed. Obviously the Treehouse events and the Direct are certain.
“But I have to say something extra… The train will make at least one more stop before reaching the end”.
