Surprise, there’s a new Nintendo Direct on the way! This time, we’re talking Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and we’ve collated all the Australian times so you know when to tune in!

The next Nintendo Direct will be a half-size 20-minute broadcast focused on the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nintendo has not confirmed if it will have any games beyond XC3 to talk about, nor if it is planning a wider-ranging broadcast as a follow-up, so manage your expectations accordingly.

So when is the new Nintendo Direct?

The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Nintendo Direct will be a late one for Australian audiences. You’ll be able to catch it on Thursday, June 23 if you live on Australia’s east coast, or in NZ. The time difference will bump the Direct up to Wednesday, June 22 if you’re in SA, the NT, or WA.

Nice. Where can I see it?

Ninty’s official Twitch and YouTube channels will be the best place Australians can see the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Nintendo Direct. VOD versions will be uploaded after the live broadcast has finished.

What time does the Nintendo Direct start?

  • Well with the Nintendo Direct happening tomorrow morning at 10am for me Victoria I’m hoping to see some updates or free DLC updates for Mario Party Superstars.
    I also want to see more information on Kirby and The Forgotten Land coming out on March 25 next month.
    I also want to see a new Donkey Kong game been announced along with hopefully an announcement for Super Mario Odyssey 2 and maybe Mario Kart 9.
    That’s all I really want to see for tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct.

      • No time for that john_stalvern Sakurai-san needs to rest up after his reveal of all 11 DLC fighters from Super Smash Bros Ultimate there will be no Super Smash Bros Ultimate sequel in tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct.
        So suck it up john_stalvern and please do not comment me again about a Super Smash Bros Ultimate sequel it’s not going to happen.

    • James, if you are in Victoria and you say you’ll watch it from 10am, you would have missed it. It starts at 9am for Sydney, VIC and ACT

      • No brownie73 that is not what I meant I said I’m watching the Nintendo Direct at 9am.
        Do you get the picture now?

  • At least the time is reasonable. Must be big changes to the series if there’s 20 minutes of stuff to talk about.
