Nintendo Direct September 2023 livestream coming this week

Nintendo confirmed that it would be doing its usual fall season livestream presentation, showing off around 40 minutes of games tomorrow.


Nintendo has, historically, almost always done a Nintendo Direct presentation in the month of September to set the stage for its winter line-up of games, and this year is no exception. Today, Nintendo announced the latest September Nintendo Direct, set to show off a wealth of new reveals for games that will be launching this September. What’s more, players will be getting the presentation sooner than later… It’s coming tomorrow!

Nintendo announced its September 2023 Nintendo Direct presentation via the Nintendo Twitter on September 13, 2023. According to the announcement, Nintendo is going to go live with its latest Direct on September 14, 2023, at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET. The announcement didn’t share any specific games that would shown, but it did share that viewers would get to see about 40 minutes of game reveals and footage for titles Nintendo expects to launch during winter 2023. This could include even more details on Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which itself just had a special presentation recently.

There’s no telling exactly what we’re in for at the moment with tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct, but with 40 minutes, it sounds like there will be a lot. After all, Nintendo has often used its September Direct to show off all-new upcoming games. With that in mind, we could see some delightful surprises out of tomorrow’s event. For example, the September Nintendo Direct in 2022 revealed Pikmin 4, Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe, a character reveal and release date for Octopath Traveler 2, and a lot more.

We won’t have to wait long to see what the September 2023 Nintendo Direct has in store for us, so stay tuned right here at Shacknews, join us to catch the action when it drops, or just enjoy our coverage during and after the Direct concludes.

        Tag this prediction.

        Nintendo won't say a word about Switch 2 this year. The holiday will be all about selling Super Mario Wonder, Super Mario RPG, more info on Princess Peach/Detective Pikachu, holiday push for TOTK/Pikmin 4/Advance Wars/Metroid Prime/etc, and one last push for Switch bundles.

        MARCH 2024 is when they'll announce the the Switch 2 and maybe give a release date/window. This falls as far as possible from their holiday season while also landing right before their March quarterly report which is generally their most important of the year.

        I'm going to assume a release window of 3-6 months after that, so we'll see anywhere from summer to September of next year. I assume they want to get it out ASAP because they don't like launching during the holiday quarter. That said they also need enough time to stockpile enough hardware before launch, I assume at least 15 million for the first year. I'm sure they're trying to ride that razor's edge between not launching during the holiday quarter and capacity, so even they may be unsure.

        Either way I think its March for an announcement. If they could somehow launch next spring I think they would but then they'd Osborne Effect the Switch's last big holiday. We'll see!

            I really do think they want to get it out next summer, June if possible. Their strategy has been to launch early and build up holiday stock based on market data.

            Maybe that isn't that much a concern this time because the Switch is such an insane success and demand for a "Super Switch" would presumably be high, especially if it launched with a new 3D Mario and cross-gen Metroid Prime 4. They're also a very conservative company that learned their lesson after decades of holiday launches that were basically dice rolls where they either couldn't keep up with demand or had unsold stock sitting on shelves for months.

                Prior rumors (post OLED release) have said that Nintendo is trying to have enough stock to satisfy demand at launch.

                  Very dependent on Nvidia’s capacity. I guess we’re well past the point of supply chain problems, GPUs and everything else are easy as hell to get now, but there are always supply issues for consoles at launch. We’ll see.
