The next Nintendo Direct presentation is dedicated to the upcoming Super Mario Bros Movie which will be released in cinemas on 7 April 2023.
If you want to tune in live, then we have everything you need to know.
When is the next Nintendo Direct?
The next Nintendo Direct will take place on Thursday 6 October at 9:05pm UK time (BST). Here are the start times for other locations:
US West Coast: 1:05am PT
US East Coast: 4:05am ET
Central Europe: 10:05pm CET
Little is known about the presentation – even how long it will last – but Nintendo has confirmed that it will feature the world premiere of the Super Mario Bros Movie trailer and contain “no game information”. So, it could well just be for the trailer alone and that’s why Nintendo hasn’t said how long the presentation will last.
Not much information about the film is out there so be sure to tune in for whatever Nintendo has to offer. Of course, Chris Pratt – like it or not – is voicing Mario so he could well make an appearance.
In association with Illumination, we do have a look at the official poster which has a lot going on. Mario is standing in the Mushroom Kingdom looking up at Peach’s Castle, high up on a hill. Meanwhile, Toad looks like he has his backpack ready for an adventure.

What is Nintendo Direct?
Nintendo Direct is the legendary Japanese gaming company’s way of communicating with both the press and fans. It’s namely for making news announcements for upcoming games.
The announcements can vary, from new gameplay features to new accessory reveals and even release date announcements. Previously, Nintendo used its Direct presentations to unveil the Nintendo Switch, as well as many of its best Nintendo Switch games.
Occasionally there will be a dedicated Pokémon Direct presentation, especially for the franchise, or particular games like Smash Bros and Animal Crossing.
