June Nintendo Direct confirmed… and it’s all about Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will take centre stage at the next Nintendo Direct, but there’s still no sign of a general E3-esque showcase.

Even though E3 2022 never happened, Nintendo fans have widely expected the company to have a major Nintendo Direct at some point in June, even if it’s not taking part in Summer Game Fest.

Rumours pointed towards a Direct being scheduled right at the end of the month, but instead Nintendo has announced one for this week… and it’s dedicated entirely to Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Simply titled the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct, it will begin at 3pm BST this Wednesday, June 22. Nintendo hasn’t said exactly what will be shown but it’ll be 20 minutes long and there’s no indication any other games will be mentioned.

That’s about half as long as its major Directs, which tend to clock in at roughly 40 minutes, but that’s plenty of time to show off new gameplay footage and expand on the game’s story, world, and characters.

While exciting news for Xenoblade fans, this does suggest that we won’t be getting our E3 level Nintendo Direct at all this month, since Nintendo has very rarely, if ever, aired two major Direct showcases in the same month.
