Starting at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm UK, the Nintendo Direct will be 20 minutes long and provide a closer look at Monolith Soft’s upcoming RPG, which will launch on July 29.
Due to the lack of a cohesive E3 event, this year’s summer of gaming news has been a bit more scattered than usual, and so we’ve not seen a traditional June Nintendo Direct this year. While it looks like we will not be getting a full overview of Nintendo’s plans in the immediate future, this is at least a big look at one of the Switch’s most important upcoming games.
The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct will be live on June 22. For more from the game, check out why fans are frustrated with the pre-order situation for the special edition, and the director discussing clues in the reveal trailer.
