Nintendo typically kicks off the fall gaming season with a new Nintendo Direct filled with fresh gameplay and big surprises, and this year will be no different.
The next Nintendo Direct will take place on Sept. 4 at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m ET, and promises "roughly 40 minutes of information" focused on new Switch games coming this year. Nintendo already confirmed that it will be showing off more of Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield, though we expect a few surprises as well.
So, what else could we see at the September 2019 Nintendo Direct? Other upcoming 2019 Switch games include Daemon X Machina, The Witcher 3 and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, so fresh looks at those seem like safe bets.
The Switch is also rumored to be getting a library of SNES games for Nintendo Switch Online, and since we're coming up on the one-year anniversary for Nintendo's online service, this would be the Direct to reveal it at.
A recently discovered Nintendo UK listing suggests that the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter will be an SNK character, so perhaps we'll learn if a new challenger from King of Fighters, Fatal Fury or Metal Slug will be joining the brawl. We also saw an Overwatch-branded Switch case accidentally hit Amazon a few weeks ago, so this Direct may finally mark the official reveal of Blizzard's popular online shooter coming to Nintendo's console.
