A Nintendo Direct is reportedly set for September 2022 featuring The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
The Nintendo Direct focuses on multiple The Legend of Zelda games for Nintendo Switch according to a recent podcast with GamesBeat editor Mike Minotti and reporter Jeff Grubb. Grubb says there’s some uncertainty around the type of Nintendo Direct (Mini, Partner, etc.). However, many signs are pointing toward a general Nintendo Direct typically hosted annually in September.
“Yeah, I think there’s going to be a lot of Zelda stuff at this thing,” Grubb said. “I think this is like a Zelda blowout for Nintendo. 100% there’s a Nintendo Direct in September, it’s that simple. There is still some uncertainty about whether this will be a general [Direct], maybe a Mini, there was some talk of it being a Partner Direct”.
Grubb added: “If they’re going to have Zelda stuff there, this is not a Partner Direct, and those are the things that we’ve been hearing. The specifics that were name-dropped were Twilight Princess and Wind Waker HD ports to the Switch.
“Which, again, even had we not heard that, I would be speculating that that would be happening right now while we wait for the run-up to Breath of the Wild 2. And yet we have heard that, and we’ve heard other things, again Metroid Prime remaster, that sounds like it’s got to be announced at something like this.
“And then third parties will be showing up,” Grubb continued. “I’ve heard some of that as well, it’s not super exciting the things I’ve heard. To me it sounds like at least a Mini Direct, but if it’s going to have the name of the next Zelda, which seems like a distinct possibility, that sounds like a big general Direct. The Metroid Prime things seems like it should be happening. It’s a lot of remasters to announce in one thing, but maybe that will be a little bit of a theme here.”
The most recent Nintendo Direct focused around Splatoon 3, which releases on September 9 for Switch.
