JRPG fans should set their alarms for today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast.

Nintendo has confirmed that a new Nintendo Direct live stream will be broadcast today. However, it’s not the E3-style showcase many fans have been waiting for.

Instead, today’s event will provide 20 minutes of information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 3.


You can watch the broadcast via the official Nintendo YouTube Channel at the following times.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
