Watch the Nintendo Direct Mini June 2022 partner showcase here

Watch the Nintendo Direct Mini for a look at upcoming third-party titles coming to the Nintendo Switch.


The Nintendo Direct Mini is happening today, and you can watch the latest announcements and trailers right here on Shacknews. This special Nintendo livestream focuses entirely on third-party games, meaning you won’t hear anything about first-party titles like the eagerly anticipated Breath of the Wild sequel. However, there’s no doubt going to be plenty to get excited about. Check it out.

Nintendo Direct Mini – June 28, 2022

The Nintendo Direct Mini is scheduled to begin at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET on June 28, 2022. This presentation is set to last about 25 minutes, so viewers should put aside an appropriate amount of time to tune in, hear all the announcements, and digest the good news. You can watch the livestream using the embed below or by heading over to the Nintendo YouTube channel.

Given that this Nintendo Direct focuses on third-party games, viewers should temper their expectations: you’re not going to be hearing about Zelda, Mario or other first-party titles. What you will hear about though, is the excellent line-up of developers that will be releasing their products on the Nintendo Switch. We might get to hear more about Hollow Knight: Silksong, Bayonetta 3 and perhaps another look at the upcoming expansion to Monster Hunter Rise, Sunbreak.

No matter what gets announced at today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, you can be certain you’ll see plenty of coverage right here on Shacknews. If you can’t tune in live, stop by our Nintendo page for the latest announcements and hottest news.

        The whole time I was playing Persona 5 Royal on Playstation I wished I was playing it on my Switch instead.

        Oh well, at least it finally happened! Going to be terrific on the SWOLED

      A surprising number of games from Square Enix I thought.

      Surprised how many games they announced. Almost wish the Direct was longer just so they could have spent a little more time on some of the key ones. But, then that might have felt too long. I haven't checked YouTube, but maybe there are longer trailers out there too.

      Several games I'd want to check out and a couple my wife and kids might enjoy too.

        There’s going to be a dedicated video for Mario Xcom 2 tomorrow on Ubisoft’s channel. Looking forward to that, the first game and especially the DK DLC were so good

          2 seems like it might have a different feel. I kept meaning to get the first game, especially since it kept going on super sale for like $15. My Xcom skills are not what they used to be.

            It's a great game, and not as demanding or frustrating as Xcom (but still fun and a good challenge).

              The first three kingdoms are chill and easy and then it ramps up pretty surprisingly towards the end.

              The optional challenge maps can be VERY fucking difficult. They were clearly holding back on the main campaign so people could complete it and enjoy the story.

            If you play it then do make sure to get the gold edition that comes with the DK campaign DLC. Finish the main game first and then play DK, it is superb
