Nintendo tends to have Direct presentations in September every year, and sure enough, it’s looking like that’s going to be the case in 2023 as well, if multiple recent leaks are to be believed. Allegedly, a Direct presentation is scheduled for sometime next week, and potential details on announcements that could be made as part of the showcase are seemingly emerging as well.

The rumoured Direct presentation will apparently feature announcements for a coupld of classic Nintendo franchises, based on hints recently dropped on Twitter by leaker Pyoro, who accurately leaked Super Mario Bros. Wonder and Super Mario RPG Remake ahead of their announcements earlier this year.

In one tweet, the leaker wrote, “Let’s just say fans of a certain MATLAB function will be happy with the upcoming Direct.”

MATLAB, a numeric and programming platform developer by MathWorks, doesn’t have a link to any of Nintendo’s franchises, but many have speculated that the tweet references MATLAB’s “fzero” function, and that Pyoro is potentially suggesting that an F-Zero game will be announced.

Meanwhile, in another (much more straightforward) tweet, the leaker included only a gif showing Donkey King from The Super Mario Bros. Movie, potentially indicating an upcoming announcement of a new Donkey Kong game.

In additional tweets, the leaker has also claimed that Nintendo will reveal new details for the upcoming Princess Peach game, and that a Game Boy Advance F-Zero title will also be announced for Nintendo Switch Online.

Of course, with a company as notoriously secretive and unpredictable as Nintendo, it’s always wise to take any and all leaks with a grain of salt- for now, at least. We’ll keep an eye out for more new details, so stay tuned for further updates.
