Every Nintendo fan knows that there are always rumors swirling around about what the company is up to next. Some of them are worth looking into, and others are flat-out false. Figuring out which is which can be difficult sometimes, but that latest round of chatter seems worth sharing at the very least.

Well-known Nintendo rumor-monger Jeff Grubb is back once again with a supposed peek behind the curtain, giving us a possible hint of what’s next for the Big N. This time around, we get a three-part rumor about things potentially lined up for 2023.

First up is the next Nintendo Direct, which could see arrival sometime in September. Grubb notes that Nintendo usually hosts a Nintendo Direct in September, and we should expect the same this year. While exact timing isn’t given, it seems like this Direct could pop up near Nintendo Live 2023, which runs from Sept. 1st to 4th, 2023.

Along with that, Grubb shared the juicier rumor of more Zelda content in the works. In particular, Grubb says that this Zelda content won’t be related to Tears of the Kingdom. The only other piece of information we have is to expect this Zelda goodness to arrive sometime in 2023.

Last, we have more discussion of the rumored Metroid Prime 2 Remastered. According to Grubb, Metroid Prime Remastered 2 should be releasing relatively soon, and it will include modern controls and an HD overhaul. That said, it’s not going to be the massive revamp that Metroid Prime Remastered was, so temper your expectations a bit.

We’ll keep an eye out for more details on both of these rumors, but as always, take this information with a grain of salt.

September direct will surprise exactly zero Nintendo die-hards, cool that it might play out the way I speculated earlier in the year: timed with the Nintendo Live. No better way to capitalize on brand hype and love with a captive audience than to drip feed them some of the delicious digital knowledge nectar.

We've got...
- Lego Zelda set rumors (The leaks)
- Zelda Movie rumors (on hold until these strikes are over I imagine)
- Hyrule Warriors 3 maybe

As for Prime 2, if it's not like Prime Remastered visually, a lot won't care.

All total softball guesses. People have been guessing some variation of these claims the whole console cycle and no one ever notices or learns when they’re wrong. They can turn out right eventually, but I’m no longer impressed by the rumor mill unless it can churn up something credible regarding the Switch successor.

My guess is that a lot of work went into Metroid Prime and Nintendo wants to see more $$$ but not wait a long development cycle for it. If Metroid Prime 2 isn't remastered, then I doubt Metroid Prime 3 will be either.

Hoping for some tweaks to MP2 though because navigating the dark world felt tedious until the end of the game.

What's with this nonsense? The next Direct is MONTHS away!

Well if Mr Grubb says something is happening then we can be sure the opposite is actually true.
