Which games will be shown at Nintendo Direct?
Nintendo has told fans to expect "roughly 40 minutes" of info, "focused on Nintendo Switch games launching this winter!"
Nintendo has made no hardware-related promises, so don't go expecting to see the rumoured Switch Pro/Switch 2 at this event. Games expected on the Switch this year include Super Mario Bros Wonder, Mortal Kombat 1 and the long-awaited Hogwarts Legacy port.
This being Nintendo, fans will be hoping to see famous franchises like Zelda, Mario, Metroid and Pokémon. Metroid Prime 4 and seeing more of that lush-looking Super Mario RPG remake are good guesses, while the likes of Mario Odyssey 2 feels less likely.
Rumours have been pointing towards a new F-Zero (could it finally be happening?) and that we'll see more of the as-yet untitled Princess Peach game.
Of course, Nintendo has a habit of surprising us at these shows, so we can't 100 per cent rule out anything. We'll be sure to bring you hot, fresh coverage of anything that does get announced.
