Many have plenty of significant forthcoming events to look forward to, but Nintendo has been conspicuously absent from that long list up until this point. This is something that people are looking forward to. Many people have been waiting with bated breath for the company to announce this year’s show, despite the fact that the company has not made any announcements regarding the show up until this point. The Japanese multinational corporation traditionally hosts a massive Nintendo Direct blowout in the month of June of each year.
It would appear that Nintendo has not abandoned plans to broadcast another Nintendo Direct, contrary to the expectations of a great many people. Recently, a member on Reddit decided to share a screenshot of an email they had received from the developer of a forthcoming game asking for prospective coverage of the game. The user, who says they are a content creator, had edited out details from the screenshot to obscure what game the email was in reference to, but other Redditors have managed to figure out that it’s for Neon White, Angel Matrix, and Annapurna Interactive’s first-person shooter, which is scheduled to release for Switch and PC in “early Summer,” according to previous trailers for the game.
It is interesting to note that the email states that any coverage of the game is under a gag order until June 15 at nine in the morning Pacific Time. It is presumed that at that time a new episode of Nintendo Direct will become available, and that episode of Nintendo Direct will be the venue for the announcement of a shadow drop release for Neon White. Given that the Switch version of the game is the only one available, that makes some sense.
Moderators on Reddit have been able to confirm that the person in question did, in fact, get this email. This information is provided for what it’s worth. Even if that doesn’t indicate that a Nintendo Direct is going to be broadcast soon, the fact that it happened at such an opportune moment in time is intriguing anyway.
In any case, if there is going to be a Nintendo Direct in the near future, an announcement probably won’t be too far behind. However, Nintendo will often make an announcement regarding its Direct presentations two days before they air, so we may have to hold off on receiving confirmation until the following week. Keep an eye on this space for further information till then.
