Predictions and leaks

Updates Pokemon Sword and Shield, Luigi's Mansion - that's all pretty much as expected but 40 minutes is pretty long for a Nintendo Direct, so what else might be in store?

Well, Nintendo fans and Switch owners in particular have been busy making their Nintendo Direct predictions and desperately searching for leaks ahead of the broadcast on Wednesday.

Some sound sensible, while others are plainly ridiculous. You can be the judge.

Overwatch on Switch?

This 'leak' posted on Twitter is pretty convincing and includes all sorts of things to get excited about - not least the apparent release of Overwatch on October 4th.

The Overwatch-on-Switch rumour is particularly timely after an Overwatch-themed Nintendo Switch case was reportedly listed on Amazon in late August.

New Switch games?

The same post also includes Super Mario Bros Odyssey, new classic NES and SNES games added to rebranded online mode and a new racing game with the working title of Project Kanto.

Smash Ultimate

The Nintendo Direct on September 4th is also expected to include some updates on to Smash Brothers Ultimate, including a new stage and, perhaps, DLC characters.

Banjo-Kazooie is on the way and fans could get an official release date for the new character. There's also the chance that the next DLC character could be revealead during the broadcast.

The only way to find out for sure, of course, is to tune in to the Nintendo Direct.
