Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase September round-up

The Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase has now ended! Some amazing upcoming games, including Monster Hunter Rise and Disgaea 6 have been revealed, along with some re-releases of fan favourites. You can find release dates, information, and trailers for all the announcements below.

The September Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase was the first since July. In the previous two, we learned more about games like Shin Megami Tensei and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, so we knew not to expect anything new from Nintendo itself. The previous instalments ran for approximately 10 minutes each, so we can assume this is the normal length we can expect from a Direct Mini from now on.

The last substantial Nintendo Direct was broadcast over a year ago in early September, and many fans are desperate for a Nintendo Direct on a larger scale, so we can see how our wallets will fare in the coming months, and book our days off. Find out all of the news from the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase below!
