Nintendo Switch players could finally be seeing Wind Waker and Twilight Princess head to the handheld console, according to a new report.

As reported by VGC, GamesBeat's Mike Minotti and Giant Bomb's Jeff Grubb spoke on a podcast about the seemingly real possibility of the two games being announced as part of this month's Nintendo Direct.

"The one thing we are very, very sure is being announced at this Direct are the Wind Waker and Twilight Princess ports for Switch,” Minotti said.

The two speakers were also confident that Nintendo would be hosting a Direct this month, though were uncertain on what type of Direct it would be. "100% there’s a Nintendo Direct in September, it’s that simple. There is still some uncertainty about whether this will be a general, maybe a Mini, there was some talk of it being a Partner Direct”, said Grubb.

News has been quiet for The Legend of Zelda series in recent months, with fans eagerly awaiting more information on the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild. Ports for both Twilight Princess and Wind Waker have been in high demand, with the two last receiving HD ports for the Wii U console.

With the two journalists sure of the upcoming ports, it remains to be seen just how Nintendo will plan to release them. It's unclear whether the games will be released natively, as cloud versions, or as part of the Nintendo Switch Online offerings.
