Coming hot off the announcement of the next Pokemon games, a second Nintendo Direct within a week has been announced.

This next Nintendo Direct, streaming at 2 p.m. PT tomorrow here and their Twitch channel, will provide “updates on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS titles planned for launch through summer 2016,” according to the Direct’s page. While no Nintendo games have a concrete summer release window, titles with a 2016 release include The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic GamesMutant Mudds Super ChallengeShin Megami Tensei x Fire EmblemBravely Second: End Layer, the seventh and eighth Dragon QuestMetroid Prime: Federation ForceSonic Boom: Fire & IceZero Escape 3: Zero Time Dilemma and Star Fox Zero.

Nintendo put any curiosities centered around talk about NX, the codename for their next console, and mobile games during the Direct to rest by clarifying, “The presentation will not include any updates on NX or mobile,” it says on the Direct’s page.

Just in time to celebrate Pokemon’s 20th anniversary, Nintendo hosted a Pokemon Direct last Friday to announce Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, the next main games in the series, for the 3DS. Sun and Moon have a holiday 2016 release window. Watch that announcement here.
