While Zippo's leaks sometimes hit the mark and sometimes miss, GameCube fans could expect remaster announcements with accurate information.
The next Nintendo Direct is expected to take place in September, as this is a long-standing tradition. However, do not expect any updates on the next-gen console.
The frequent Nintendo leaker Zippo claims that a Nintendo Direct focusing on the Super Mario franchise and possibly including some GameCube news will be broadcasted soon. Nintendo has been hosting a Nintendo Direct presentation almost every September for over a decade, so it wouldn't be too surprising if such an event actually takes place next month.
Zippo is a frequent Nintendo leaker with an inconsistent track record. Some of their leaks have proven to be accurate, while others have not materialized. It goes without saying that fans should approach these latest claims with utmost caution. It remains to be seen if there is any truth to these latest "leaks," but if they turn out to be true, the next Nintendo Direct could be particularly exciting for GameCube fans.
In Zippo's latest blog post, it is claimed that the rumored Nintendo Direct in September 2023 will have a "strong focus" on Super Mario, with fresh insights into Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Super Mario RPG, and the new Princess Peach game. They also consider it "highly likely" that additional GameCube remasters will be announced in the Direct. Specific GameCube remasters were not mentioned, but reputable insiders have previously stated that Metroid Prime 2 is being remastered for the Switch, and there have been persistent rumors for years that Nintendo also intends to bring HD remasters of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess to the Switch.
Zippo concluded their post by noting that the next Nintendo Direct will air sometime in the first two weeks of September or possibly even "earlier." Even if Nintendo does host a Nintendo Direct in September, it does not necessarily indicate any kind of legitimate insider information. After all, Nintendo has practically held a Nintendo Direct every September for over a decade, so it would be rather unusual if none were to take place next month.
But hypothetically, if, as indicated by Zippo, additional GameCube remasters are showcased at the Nintendo Direct, the remaster of Metroid Prime 2 appears to be the most likely possibility. The remaster of Metroid Prime 2 has been leaked by proven, reliable sources, and it's only a matter of time before it is unveiled to the wider audience.
Some fans may be curious about what Nintendo has in store for its next-generation console instead of seeing updates on Nintendo Switch games. The latest reports suggest that the next Nintendo console will be released sometime in 2024, but fans should not expect to receive official information about it this year.
