Nintendo Direct June 2024 confirmed for tomorrow

Nintendo will show off nearly 40 minutes of game updates and reveals during the presentation.

Nintendo has officially confirmed its latest Nintendo Direct presentation for the summer. While Nintendo had previously said we would get a June direct, and many even narrowed down the day it would occur, we finally got a concrete date and time from Nintendo today. The presentation will feature about 40 minutes of game announcements and reveals.

Nintendo announced its June 2024 Direct presentation via social media. The Nintendo Direct June 2024 presentation will take place on June 18, 2024, at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET. This presentation is expected to show off what Nintendo has planned for the back half of 2024 and slightly beyond, so it’s likely that the content of the direct will be dense to say the least.

As for what will be shown in the Direct, we at least know that we’re unlikely to see anything about the next console following the Nintendo Switch. Back in May 2024 when Nintendo announced its FY2024 financial results, President Shuntaro Furukawa made his own announcement, stating that the Nintendo Switch successor would be shown in Nintendo’s FY2025, but not in its June presentation.

With that off the table, it will be interesting to see what Nintendo does show. Stay tuned as we watch and share the biggest reveals from the Nintendo Direct June 2024 presentation this week.

      Not expecting much. Kinda lame duck for the switch right now. Hopefully whatever they announce will be something that’ll sell a few million that will get a performance boost on switch2. Metroid 4?

        Yea, I am sure they will sell a $10 switch 2 graphic upgrade on a bunch of the games like PS5 did. Or they will just go full-Nintendo and sell it again for $60

          At this point I expect MP4 to be a Switch 2 cross gen launch and so it wouldn't surprise me to not see it until they're talking about that successor.

          This Direct will be setting them up through the holiday season, so the biggest 'not launching immediately' stuff will be stuff that hits then.

          It may be clown makeup time again (probably is), but Silksong seems more likely than MP4.

            Plus Mercury Steam has likely been working on something since Dread.

            Silksong is a day one gamepass game and ms has just recently their big event. It would be pretty lol for silksong to show up at nintendo a few days later.

              I think they have deals of some sort with both publishers; the only place it's ever been shown off playably was in Nintendo's booth a few years ago.

                It also got its first console release on the Switch. Most of all it'll get way more eyeballs and customers from a Nintendo Direct.

                The demo for the game was at nintendo iirc. That was like pre pandemic 2019?

                I mean I'm all for that but I'm not gonna put any hope into it.

                  Yeah, three whole days you could play it at E3. Nobody could have guessed that the gap between that demo and Silksong's release would be longer than the gap between that and Hollow Knight's release.

                  Then again nobody could have guessed a global pandemic followed by the actual death of E3 lol

          Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD feel probable. Yoshi's Wooly World would be terrific, it deserves to not just be on the Wii U and 3DS.

            Putting my coin on a new Mario Party, they come out every three years and sell like crazy. The last two did like 35 million copies total, perfect holiday game.

            Anything else will be a surprise for me, genuinely have no idea since any core games are cooking for the next console. I assume Super Mario Wonder was the last big core game for the Switch, but that also came out of nowhere at at time when people thought the next console was probably 2024, so who knows?

      Metroid Prime 2 & 3 Remastered pls.

        If it happens I bet its just a HD upscale and modified for Switch controls, not a ground-up remake of all assets like they did for Prime 1

          That'd still be a Day 1 for me.

          Certainly hoping for the latter as you can already experience an HD upscale version on emulation.

            I assume that Retro's capacity is all towards Metroid Prime 4. The fact that they went so far above and beyond for the MP1 remake still surprises me. I'm not keeping my hopes up for the other sequels getting the same treatment, but it would be nice!

            Even some QoL work like what happened for Skyward Sword HD (it turned an annoying game into a GREAT game) would be nice.
