Tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct Will Focus on Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokemon, and Other 2019 Games

It starts at 3 p.m. PT, and we'll be all over it.

If you've been waiting patiently for more details on Pokemon Sword and Shield, want to see more of Luigi's Mansion 3, or if you're just hoping we'll find out who the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character is, then carve out some time for a 40 minute Nintendo Direct on Wednesday, September 4 at 3pm PT/6 pm EST.

Surely there's still plenty we could learn about the new Pokemon games ahead of their November release, and we can't get enough of Gooigi. Since the announcement says the Direct will be focused on games coming to the Switch this year, it unfortunately seems like a safe bet that we won't be seeing anything from Animal Crossing New Horizons, but one can always dream.

Will we find out whether or not the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character is, as rumored, really an SNK character? Perhaps! If you need to look back at everything we already know about Pokemon Sword and Shield or Luigi's Mansion 3, just follow those handy links.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
