There's a New Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase Airing Early Tomorrow Morning

Expect a slew of third-party announcements for the Switch.

Surprise, there's a brand new Nintendo Direct Mini showcase airing tomorrow! Nintendo just revealed earlier today that there will be a partner showcase airing tomorrow on September 17.

The showcase itself will be kicking off at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET, so it's an early showcase for west coast folk. As ever, Nintendo is keen to remind everyone that this showcase will feature titles from their "publishing partners," exclusively.

So no, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will not be showing up during tomorrow's Nintendo Direct Mini. The partner showcase will focus "exclusively" on Nintendo's publishing partners, but that probably won't stop Nintendo Twitter going off on one from now until the showcase begins.

Don't expect Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity to show up either. This is a showcase meant for third-party titles, and although Age of Calamity is developed in a partnership between Nintendo and Koei Tecmo, Nintendo will be exclusively publishing the musuo spin-off game. More info about the upcoming Breath of the Wild prequel musou is currently set for Sept. 26, during Tokyo Game Show 2020.

What you should expect is a litany of announcements similar in scope to those revealed at the Nintendo Indie Direct back in August. Games like Hades and Hypnospace Outlaw were revealed to be coming to the Switch, and other games like Spiritfarer and Raji were had their release dates on the Switch revealed.

This all follows shortly after rumors of an upgraded Nintendo Switch model surfaced once again. A report claimed that Nintendo is preparing to launch an upgraded Switch console at some point in 2021, and that the publisher has asked developers to look into making their upcoming Switch games 4K-ready.
