According to a recent statement from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb on his Game Mess Decides podcast, Nintendo is likely to host a new Nintendo Direct sometime this coming week, and another unspecified Nintendo event sometime in July. Additionally, IGN’s Daemon Hatfield also recently stated on the Game Scoop! podcast, that a Nintendo event may happen this week. Lastly, new comments from prominent leaker/ insider NateTheHate were dropped on Twitter hinting that a Direct could also happen this month. None of these rumors and comments have been officially confirmed by Nintendo.
June seems like a good time for a Direct.

I wouldn't discount June from a possible Direct.
