Nintendo Direct refers to episodes of presentations that reveal information on Nintendo upgrades and upcoming releases. It has been running since 2011 and the episodes are usually called “Directs”. Nintendo Direct is typically held two to three times a year and showcases upcoming titles that create a lot of hype in the community. Similar to other platforms and announcements, there are leaks related to these events as well.
The recent Nintendo Direct was held this month on 13th September. Naturally, before the new Nintendo Direct episode, gamers are hyped for leaks and rumors about their favorite and most anticipated titles. However, for leaks regarding the next Nintendo Direct (likely to be held in 2023), there are currently no updates. The reason may simply be that it is too early and the hype is currently around the Nintendo titles announced/confirmed in the recent Direct. It is likely that Nintendo Direct 2023 leaks will surface in the coming months. They will probably involve titles missed in the recent Direct and/or entirely new projects.

When is the Next Nintendo Direct?
