Nintendo announced a little surprise for their fans, as a live showcase event called #Nintendo Direct is set to take place tomorrow, September 13. From what the company has revealed, the main purpose is to provide some new information on upcoming titles for both the #Nintendo Switch and 3DS.

A message directly from the gaming company urged players to “Tune in at 11 pm (UK time) on Wednesday, September 13, for nearly 45 minutes of information mainly focused on what’s heading to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS family systems over the next few months. This includes new details about #Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch.”

The time translates to 5 PM (Central Time).

What can we expect?

The event can be watched directly on Nintendo's Youtube channel. The primary purpose is to expand on already confirmed games like "Super Mario Odyssey." Arguably the most anticipated title still to be released this year, we are always excited to see something new with the retired plumber. On the other hand, Nintendo seems to be spending all their time talking about "Mario," and it is getting close to overkill. Some new information about the release, and possibly a confirmation of whether it will fit on a 32GB memory card, would be more than enough.

There are other Switch titles set to be released by the end of the year, including "Pokken Tournament DX" and "Fire Emblem Warriors," which might receive a bit of time during the Nintendo Direct event. Honestly, it is hard to imagine these two titles holding any surprises. The former is a re-release of a Wii U game, while the latter is just another "Dynasty Warriors" mash up. Just to be clear, we are looking forward to playing both, but what else can they reveal?

3DS

If there is one platform with an embarrassing lack of games set to be released by the end of the year, it would be the 3DS. There are some notable titles, like "Metroid: Samus Returns" and "Yo-Kai Watch 2", but there are only eight projects aspected to be released in the remaining of 2017.

With the launch of the Switch, the handheld console has fallen by the wayside and become somewhat of an afterthought. It is to be expected, but we are hoping that it is given its dues during this short Nintendo Direct showcase.
