June is known by gamers the world over as E3 month — popular video game studios and indie studios alike show off their upcoming games and hardware, making it a bit like gamer Christmas in the summer. Nintendo was initially among the developers who held an in-person presentation in Los Angeles, but opted to pivot to pre-recorded Nintendo Direct presentations instead in recent years. Now, Nintendo is known for having multiple Directs a year, with a June Nintendo Direct almost always guaranteed.
However, this year is a bit different. Three quarters of the way through the month and there was no official announcement for a Nintendo Direct… until now.
That’s right, Nintendo is holding a presentation in June! But… it’s only for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. While there’s no doubt that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be a great game, it’s a bit unusual for nothing to be announced regarding a company-wide presentation that looks at games produced by Nintendo’s various development teams. There are still a few days left in June, and perhaps there will be a presentation in July, but for now, you can tune in to the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct on June 22, 2022 at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
