Nintendo Direct September leaked? September 2019 Switch showcase teased by Gamestop

Nintendo Direct September leaked? September 2019 Switch showcase teased by Gamestop

It looks like we could be seeing another Nintendo Direct sooner rather than later.

A new photo of from what appears to be a Gamestop stock screen apparently reveals 12 unreleased Switch games. The last time we saw something like this, it was roughly 10 days before E3, when Amazon accidentally revealed a bunch of SKUs had been uploaded to its site in preparation for the E3 Direct.

This Gamestop 'leak' would suggest that we're likely to see multiple games announced at once, which Nintendo usually does via Nintendo Direct.

Traditionally, we've seen Nintendo hold Directs in Septemeber, too – with showcases taking place previously on September 13 (2017, 2018) and September 1 (2016).

That seems like a decent pattern to us – so this supposed Gamespot leak doesn't seem too farfetched at all.

The image was originally posted by Reddit user Blakebeats182 , who predicts the reveal of the fourth DLC character for Super Smash Bros Ultimate (outlining it could be either Crash Bandicoot or a Bandai Namco character… hmm).

Whilst we're unconvinced about Crash or a Bandai Namco rep joining the Smash roster, the rest of the upcoming Nintendo news seems relatively likely.

For now, this is all rumour – Nintendo may announce something soon, but as it stands you're probably better off taking all this with a pinch of salt.

If you want another source for the upcoming Direct, known leaker Sabi has taken to the internet to announce we may get more games news soon.

After reeling off a list of the news the leaker predicted before Gamescom, the Twitter account posted: "Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long till news hits back up again with September."

When asked specifically about a Direct, Sabi replied: "Tokyo Game Show, and a Direct being likely, if not in October."

Not exactly cryptic, but let's see if the information checks out over the coming weeks.
