Earlier this week, video game journalist Jeff Grubb spoke about a Nintendo Direct taking place at some point this month.

While there’s been no official announcement just yet, Grubb has now elaborated on his original comments – reiterating what he has heard from his own sources. Speaking to the Nintendo Shack crew, Grubb explained how Zelda Wind Waker and Twilight Princess re-releases would likely be part of the focus – including a possible name reveal of the Breath of the Wild sequel:

“…A lot of Zelda stuff, now I said the word “blowout” everyone is hyper-fixated on [that]…I don’t know what their [Nintendo] exact plans are, I suspect, and it’s been intimated to me… this is probably happening that we will probably get the name of Breath of the Wild 2, and we will also get the ports of the Wii U HD transfers of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.”

That’s not all, though. He went on to state how a Metroid Prime remaster could be on the cards, as well as the announcement of EA’s game It Takes Two for Switch, which has also been mentioned elsewhere online this week by another leaker:

“…Metroid Prime is also supposed to come out this holiday, so we should get that as well, so then that’s when we started talking ‘about that’s a lot of remasters… especially a lot of kind of GameCube remasters’ – will they [Nintendo] theme it around that, we have no idea.

“…It Takes Two will be coming to the Switch, that’s the one of the games I’ve heard, yes – will be in the Direct, so yeah – there should be a lot in there, it should be pretty big, it should be much bigger than the series of stuff they [Nintendo[ did throughout the summer when they didn’t have a real general Direct, so it’s exciting and I’m looking forward to it.”

Beyond this, Jeff says he doesn’t know any of the fine details about this rumoured Direct – such as the length, other participants or the exact date.

He also took this opportunity to mention how Nintendo has been “holding onto so much of this stuff for so long” and then it takes forever for it to apparently decide when certain games will be launched. Referencing the rumoured Fire Emblem game as an example, that’s supposedly just sitting at Nintendo HQ ready to be released.

Rumours about Wind Waker and Twilight Princess games originally surfaced online last year – with multiple journalists at the time claiming these titles would be getting Switch versions. The Metroid Prime re-release has also been rumoured for some time now.
