Wind Waker and Metroid Prime Nintendo Direct Reportedly Still Coming Next Week

Speaking on a live stream this weekend, Giant Bomb journalist Jeff Grubb said that although Nintendo has informed its development partners that there may be a delay in scheduling, this doesn’t seem right.

And with third-party developers likely to want to make their announcement ahead of Thursday’s Tokyo Game Show, it’s possible Live could take place earlier in the week than usual, Grubb speculated.

Grubb said :

“At this point, I’m sick of talking about it, I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing about it, we just want them to announce it. When will they do that? It seems like early next week, and then the Direct itself could happen earlier in the week than it normally does,”

“They usually hold Directs on Thursdays, but [this week] Thursday is in the heart of Tokyo Game Show, so they need to do it earlier. It could happen on Tuesday, which would be weird.”

He added:

“The Direct is, of course, not officially announced, but they have been communicating with partners on what happened over the last day or two.

“This discussion happened at Nintendo of America, and then they had the full discussion with everyone who would be a decision maker – in Japan for the most part – and it doesn’t seem the plan has changed as they reach out to partner publishers, indie developers and stuff like that.

“Based on that information, I’m fairly confident it will still happen early next week.”

“They have a lot of partners relying on them making announcements now,” he said. “The only other time they’ve done a delay in the past was due to the [2018] earthquake in Japan, and they did delay their Direct, and other partners were like, ‘we’ve still got to announce these games, we don’t have a choice’. That’s a mess, and it seems like they wanted to avoid that.”
