A Nintendo Direct could be happening soon according to VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb. Grubb was spot on with rumors/info including the previous Nintendo Direct Mini, Pikmin 3 Deluxe and more instances. Here’s what Jeff had to say:

“I’ve heard a few things and I think there’s a strong possibility that there is a Nintendo Direct next week, on Friday [the 28th]. That’s the date I’ve heard.”

In addition, Grubb says more Nintendo Direct Mini: Partners Showcases will happen and there’s uncertainty about which kind of direct could arrive this week. Grubb believes a 1st party focused Nintendo Direct is happening before the middle of September. Here’s the official excerpt:

“At the end of that show they said, ‘we’re going to have more Partner Showcases coming up soon’, so anything I hear, in the back of my mind there’s always that ringing as an echo. … I think there’s a lot of science pointing to next week being a general Direct, and there is a general Direct coming up, it seems like for sure.”

“I was hearing that even before Nintendo announced that they were having a special meeting with investors in the middle of September. I think that it makes a lot of sense for them to get a Direct out of the way before that happens, so they don’t have to answer questions like, ‘what games are coming up?’”

As always, this is a rumor so please take it with a grain of salt. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news!
