Nintendo will detail its holiday 2024 Switch lineup in new Direct

From The Verge: A busy June for gaming news just got a little busier. Nintendo announced its next Direct presentation, which will take place on June 18th at 10AM ET. The event will be focused on “games coming in the second half of 2024” and will be around 40 minutes long.

The company previously said that it would be holding a June Direct covering Switch games for the end of the year and also made it clear the event wouldn’t include the much-anticipated Switch successor, which now isn’t expected until 2025. Nintendo reiterated that today, saying, “There will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during this presentation.”

This event is notable largely because the Switch lineup for the remainder of the year is pretty thin. Outside of Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD (June 27th) and Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition (July 18th), there’s currently nothing on the calendar. Prior to that, Nintendo’s 2024 has largely been filled with remakes like Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and the Another Code collection, along with a small handful of new releases like Princess Peach: Showtime! and Endless Ocean Luminous.

The event will also close out a packed few weeks for gaming livestreams. Things kicked off with Sony’s most recent State of Play, continued with Summer Game Fest Live and its associated events, and eventually shifted to the Xbox Games Showcase.
