Nintendo direct September 13 date and time

Nintendo has announced that it will be hosting a Nintendo Direct livestream tomorrow, September 13, at 10 am EST. The official announcement from Nintendo comes after a multitude of leaks about a Nintendo Direct being planned for this week. Leakers were even able to beat Nintendo to the punch with today’s announcement, with one insider accurately claiming that the Direct would be tomorrow morning. Check out the full Nintendo Direct announcement below.

“Tune in at 7 a.m. PT tomorrow, 9/13, for a #NintendoDirect livestream featuring roughly 40 minutes of information mostly focused on #NintendoSwitch games launching this winter.”Nintendo

Previously, Nintendo had only hosted mini Nintendo Direct events in the mornings, so when the leaked time was revealed, there was some disappointment from fans. Fortunately, Nintendo’s confirmation that the Direct will be 40 minutes means we’re likely to see lots of new footage and game announcements.

One of the biggest leaks in the run-up to this September Nintendo Direct has come from Jeff Grubb. He has claimed that Nintendo plans to announce a slew of Zelda titles during tomorrow’s event. According to Grubb, who has a good track record with these types of leaks, Nintendo will announce Switch versions of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Both of the games are currently only available on the Wii U and are some of the biggest games to (so far) not get Switch versions from Nintendo.

Grubb also claims that Nintendo will finally reveal the long-awaited title of its upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel. He described the upcoming direct as a “Zelda blowout.”

There was reportedly some discussion internally at Nintendo about whether the September Nintendo Direct should be delayed in light of Queen Elizabeth II’s death. However, Nintendo must have decided to go ahead with the event as planned.

Update: Nintendo UK has announced that it won’t be showing the Nintendo Direct live stream “as a mark of respect during this period of national mourning.” The video will be posted to YouTube at 4 pm UK time instead. UK viewers should still be able to watch the American live stream. Check out the full tweet below:
