Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Splatoon 3 and Metroid Dread are among the games tipped to feature in the next Nintendo Direct presentation.

The new Nintendo Direct is rumoured to take place this week, most likely on September 16.

Nintendo Direct conferences typically take place at around 2pm BST, so expect an official announcement later this afternoon.

According to Nintendo insider Samus Hunter, the next Nintendo Direct will focus on games such as Metroid Dread, Smash Bros, Splatoon 3 and role-playing game Project Triangle Strategy.

Likewise, fans can expect to find out more about the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, which is coming soon.

Sadly, however, Nintendo is unlikely to showcase upcoming titles such as Breath of the Wild 2, which is tipped to instead feature at The Game Awards.

Metroid Dread seems almost certain to appear, especially with the game launching in just a few weeks time.

With an October 8 release date, Metroid Dread is a direct sequel to Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion. 

The game sees Samus explore the planet known as ZDR, where the deadly X Parasite is said to exist.

“On a remote alien planet, a mechanical menace awaits that will push even the galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter to her limit.

“Join Samus Aran on her deadliest 2D adventure yet in Metroid Dread on Nintendo Switch.

“To complete Samus’ mission, navigate your way through the depths of a sprawling planet full of unique environments, perilous danger and mysterious secrets.

“Use new and familiar abilities to traverse these labyrinths, consult the map to find your way and dispatch hostile enemies in your path using powerful weapons.”

As for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, fans are waiting for Nintendo to reveal the final downloadable character.

Samus Hunter believes the final character will be a third-party name, which would rule out WaLuigi.

Previous reports have suggested that the final character could be either Kingdom Heart’s Sora, Crash Bandicoot, Doom’s Doomguy, or Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa.

Tekken’s Kazuya is the most recent downloadable character, following the likes of Sephiroth, Min Min and Steve from Minecraft.

Other characters to appear as part of the Fighters Pass include Fatal Fury mainstay Terry Bogard, as well as Joker from the Persona series, Hero from various Dragon Quest games, and Banjo & Kazooie.
