The live broadcast is officially underway! Let’s see what’s new first.
The Nintendo Direct broadcast is now 15 minutes away. Nintendo hasn’t provided any additional hints as to what we might see, but if you’re going to tune in yourself, now would be a good time to do so. We’ve included a link to the live stream at the top of the page. Otherwise, you can watch the actions on the official Nintendo YouTube account.
One other possibility that we haven’t mentioned before is that Nintendo could share more information about Metroid Prime 4. The game has been in development since 2017, but so far, all we’ve seen is one trailer with a logo. A cinematic teaser—or better yet, some games—will go a long way. However, Metroid fans are accustomed to waiting a long time between entries. Remember, Metroid Dread was the first new side-scrolling entry in 19 years.
Nintendo’s first-party release schedule for the next few months seems a bit light, but there are two games we know for sure: Bayonetta 3 on October 28, and Pokémon Scarlet/Violet on November 18. Tom’s Guide has been covering both titles recently, between the new Bayonetta 3 story trailer and the Switch’s OLED release Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The first shows a new character in Bayonetta’s growing pool of allies and enemies; The latter is what it sounds like.
(It should be noted, however, that the Pokémon Switch OLED version does not come with an actual copy of the game. Aside from the aesthetics, it’s also identical to the regular Switch OLED, so think carefully about whether you really need one.)
As mentioned earlier, Nintendo rumors are a hit or miss — and failures are more common than results. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that fans are expecting two long-awaited Legend of Zelda titles. (Opens in a new tab) In today’s Nintendo Direct: HD Transformers for Twilight Princess and Wind Waker.
However, it is worth remembering that we have been reporting similar stories (Opens in a new tab) Over a year ago and nothing came of it. Reliable sources have expressed absolute certainty that Nintendo will bring these two beloved games from Zelda to the Switch – and it didn’t happen anyway.
We’re excited that Twilight Princess and Wind Waker are making their way to the Switch, especially since they’re already on the Wii U, and Nintendo has ported a lot of other Wii U titles. But we’ll believe it when we see her (maybe later today).
Regardless of anything else we see on the Nintendo Direct, you shouldn’t have too much hope for the Nintendo Switch 2 (Opens in a new tab), or whatever you want to call it. Nintendo has said in no uncertain terms that there will be no new Switch (Opens in a new tab) Until at least April 2023. (Focus on “at least.”) With winter winding down in March, Nintendo said this presentation will focus on software, the Switch’s new console doesn’t seem very likely. Nintendo unveiled the initial Switch at an October presentation, so maybe we’ll see something next October instead — or later, as the Switch could theoretically run until 2025, based on previous Nintendo comments.
Splatoon 3 was released a few days ago, which means today’s Nintendo Direct will be an excellent opportunity to talk about the game. Nintendo might say something about the successful launch of Splatoon 3 (it’s already the fastest-selling Switch game in Japan), as well as how the company plans to add content over the next few months. Since Splatoon 3’s big draw is online multiplayer, we can expect incremental seasonal updates – and winter is the next big season.
Tom’s Guide is currently working on a full Splatoon 3 review, so stay tuned. In our preview, we said that “the game’s intuitive tutorials and clever core concept won [us] During our short practical session.”
