My GUESS would be:
- Recap on games released in June (Three Hopes, Mario Strikers), maybe a season pass news
- Update on the next Mario Kart 8 DX track pack
- Splatoon 3 news, most likely an update on the story/single player content
- An update on Metroid Prime 4 stating it's still WIP followed by an announcement of something else to tide people over
- Xenoblade Chronicles 3
- Some new Nindies and ports
- Shitload of Square Enix retro JRPGs
- Switch Online Expansion Pack update, probably some N64 games and a DLC season pass coming to there (Three Hopes or Strikers maybe)
- That new Fire Emblem mainline title

1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC pack 2
2. the rumored/leaked Fire Emblem
3. More on Splatoon 3, most likely the single player campaign
4. Bayonetta 3
5. more sports being added to Switch Sports (including the leg strap usage for the actual soccer games)
6. Show some gym leaders in Pokemon Scarlet/Violet, like what they did with SwSh back in 2019
7. No Metroid Prime 4
8. No Breath of the Wild 2, but will announce a special presentation for it about a month or two later

Look at it this way, would you rather Xenoblade 3 take up 20 minutes of a general Direct, or let it have its own dedicated Direct? Last I checked I thought people hated it when a single game took up more than 5 or 10 minutes of a presentation that's supposed to be about multiple.

A mention of a more powerful switch model that allows all games to be enhanced would be absolutely appreciated, but that's probably asking too much.

Instead, I will hope for news on Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3. Botw2 would be nice as well.
