Nintendo has announced plans to hold a mini Direct conference on September 17.
The Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase takes place on September 17 at 3pm BST in the UK.
You can watch the conference live and in full by clicking play on the YouTube video embed below.
According to Nintendo, the upcoming Direct showcase will focus on third-party games coming to the Nintendo Switch.
“The next Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase is headed your way on September 17,” reads a Nintendo statement.
“Tune in tomorrow for a live-streamed presentation featuring information on upcoming Nintendo Switch titles exclusively from Nintendo’s publishing partners.”
As a third-party showcase, there are lots of games Nintendo could choose to focus on, although most fans will be hoping for more info on Hollow Knight Silksong.
Despite being announced back in February 2019, Hollow Knight Silksong is currently without a release date. Hopefully we’ll find out launch plans during the September 17 conference.
“Play as Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest, and adventure through a whole new kingdom ruled by silk and song!” reads the official Hollow Knight Silksong description.
“Captured and brought to this unfamiliar world, Hornet must battle foes and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak.
“Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the award winning action-adventure. As the lethal hunter Hornet, journey to all-new lands, discover new powers, battle vast hordes of bugs and beasts and uncover ancient secrets tied to your nature and your past.”
With WWE 2K Battlegrounds launching in just a few days, there’s a good chance we’ll get one final look at the arcade-style wrestling game ahead of its release.
Then there are high-profile third-party releases like FIFA 21 and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, which could also make an appearance.
Personally, I’m hoping to get a concrete release date for Disco Elysium, which is tipped to launch in 2020 on the platform.
Disco Elysium developer ZA/UM previously confirmed that the Switch port was “going to happen soon”, so fingers crossed we get a definitive date later this week.
“Disco Elysium is a groundbreaking open world role playing game,” reads the official description.
“You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being.”
Tune in at 3pm BST on September 17 for more from the Nintendo Direct conference.
