Shin Megami Tensei V & More in July’s Nintendo Direct Mini

Nintendo broke their lengthy radio silence today and broadcast a new Nintendo Direct Mini, focusing on the Switch’s upcoming 3rd party games. In their announcement Tweet, Nintendo was very upfront about what to expect during this presentation – no new announcements and no new 1st party information. While the show was a brisk 8 minutes, it is worth mentioning that more Mini Directs in this style will arrive throughout the year, as promised at the start of today’s presentation.

We’ll go through the show’s highlights, but if you want to see the full Nintendo Direct Mini, here’s a link:

The Legend of Zelda: Cadence of Hyrule DLC Packs


Over a year after its release, The Legend of Zelda: Cadence of Hyrule is getting paid DLC, three pieces to be exact:

  • #1 Character Pack – Five new characters to groove around Hyrule as: Impa, Aria, Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda and Frederick (the enigmatic bard)
  • #2 Melody Pack – 39 songs will be added including remixed background tracks.
  • #3 Symphony of the Mask – An all-new story mode featuring Skull Kid, plus new songs and a new map to discover.


The first DLC pack is available for purchase later today alongside a DLC season pass, with the final piece of DLC out by October 23rd.

Rouge Company


Looking like a hybrid between Fortnite and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Rouge Company is a 3rd person online multiplayer shooter with cross play and cross progression. The game is out sometime this year, but more info will arrive on their website and Twitter later today.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds


A wrestling party game with a kooky sense of humour and local multiplayer. WWE 2K Battlegrounds will release on September 18th.


Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne HD Remaster


Often considered the best game in the franchise, this is a remaster of the cult 2003 PS2 JRPG. Based on the comparison footage shown in the trailer, it’s clear that a lot of effort has gone into scrubbing up the game for this remaster. It’ll be out in Spring 2021.

Shin Megami Tensei V Trailer

Sneaking in right at the end was a brief, but all new trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V showing a woman in a subway being transported to a post-apocalyptic future. No real info was given about the game, minus the promise of a simultaneous worldwide release sometime in 2021.


That really was everything from today’s Direct. Perhaps it was a little anemic but with the promise of more smaller Nintendo Directs coming sometime in the year all we can do is sit tight.
