The obvious way to watch this upcoming Nintendo Direct is through the official Nintendo Direct site, which will stream the upcoming Partner Showcase online presentation. It will also be the place to re-watch the Direct once it's over.

Nintendo's official YouTube channel will broadcast the Direct live as well. The YouTube app is available on mobile devices as well as all gaming consoles. PS4, Xbox One and even the Nintendo Switch can stream from the video platform. The channel will upload the Nintendo Direct in its entirety after the presentation is done as well as the individual trailers that will be shown.

Nintendo's Twitch channel is another way to watch the upcoming Direct online. The Twitch app is available for mobile devices and gaming consoles like PS4 and Xbox One.

WHAT TO EXPECT

If we look back at July's Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, no one could have predicted what would be shown.

Shin Megami Tensei V, the latest in the long-running series, was the highlight of the presentation along with a remaster of Shin Megami Tensei III. Fans of the series were pleased, but what can we expect in September?

WWE Battlegrounds made an appearance in July and with a couple of days before its release, fans may see more footage of this arcade-style wrestling game on Thursday.

We're still holding out hope we'll get an update on Bravely Default 2, the sequel to the Square Enix RPG that is scheduled to release in 2020. There's only a few months left in the year, so an update or a revised release date is possible.
