Nintendo did not release a single standard Nintendo Direct in 2020, instead opting to release smaller Nintendo Direct Mini and Partner Showcase events, while oddly reserving some of its own first-party announcements for Twitter, as it did with Paper Mario: The Origami King and Pikmin 3 Deluxe. The company returned in February 2021 with the first standard Nintendo Direct in over a year, which gave fans hope that Nintendo Directs are back and here to stay.
Good news seems to be on the way for Nintendo fans as notable video game reporter, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb, has claimed that Nintendo is planning a “full-scale general Direct showcase” for this June to coincide with its presence at E3 2021. Fans have already speculated that this will be the case given the company’s history with the event. Historically, Nintendo has held major Nintendo Directs just before E3 as well as its Treehouse Live events during the show itself. It seems like these are slated to make a return this year.

E3 2021 is slated to take place between June 12th to June 15th 2021, so fans won’t have to wait long before Nintendo returns to make some major announcements. Grubb’s report also reveals that Microsoft and Bethesda will attend to present upcoming titles, including a possible new Forza title. What comes of this remains to be seen, until then, it’s only two months until the event returns. As for what Nintendo could include in its E3 Nintendo Direct, the company has a lot of previously announced titles that are due for updates. These include Bayonetta 3, Shin Megami Tensei 5, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. This also extends to the company’s rumored plans for The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary, which could see the announcements of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD ports for Nintendo Switch. There are also rumors that internal Nintendo studio Monolith Soft is developing a new Xenoblade Chronicles game, which could see an announcement alongside a Switch port of Xenoblade Chronicles X.
