We learned that not only will the long-awaited fifth SMT installment be coming in 2021 with a simultaneous worldwide release, but that the post-apocalyptic third installment, Nocturne, will be getting an HD remaster on Switch (and possibly PS4) in the same year.A Nintendo Direct Mini will air later today, showcasing titles from non-Nintendo developers and publishers.

The Nintendo Direct Mini July Showcase was revealed on Twitter by the Nintendo of America account, and it apparently the first in a series of broadcasts to come. Today’s show will “share a few updates on a small group of previously-announced Nintendo Switch
games.” According to Nintendo Japan, the Direct Mini will run for 10 minutes.

Per previous showcases, you’ll most likely be able to catch it on Nintendo’s official YouTube account. The Twitter account behind HiRez Studios’ upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter Rogue Company quoted Nintendo’s tweet with some cryptic wording, suggesting the game may appear during the show. A few games that may well qualify for this direct include Bayonetta 3 and Shin Megami Tensei V – which are developed by Nintendo’s partners, and are yet to be revealed in any great depth.
