The Nintendo Direct September 2023 is here, with Nintendo announcing its plans for the winter with 40 minutes of content for our squelchy eyeballs. In classic fashion, we don’t really know all that much before the show, though there have been some rumors of new Switch games on the horizon. Time to see if those rumors are right with all of the Nintendo Direct September 2023 announcements.
There are the expected things – if we don’t hear about the Splatoon 3 Side Order DLC or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s final wave of content, I’ll be shocked. But, then again, there are some less expected things. We could get a new F-Zero, though these rumors have popped up over the last five years on and off. We could also get a new Donkey Kong, but again, who knows?
One of the strongest rumors over the last few years is about Twilight Princess Switch and Wind Waker Switch ports. Various insiders have corroborated these rumors, and we feel pretty confident Nintendo has them in the bank. Where are they? Maybe we’ll find out tomorrow.
Where can I watch the Nintendo Direct September 2023?
You can watch the Nintendo Direct September 2023 via Nintendo’s YouTube channel. You can find the link below:
