What can we expect from today’s Nintendo Direct?
There are many releases planned for the Nintendo Switch this year, many of which can be seen during today’s presentation. Kirby and the Forgotten Land will take the pink puffball on a post-apocalyptic open-world adventure in March, while the Triangle Strategy arrives at the beginning of the month.
Splatoon 3 may well appear, and Nintendo may offer a more specific release date than the very open 2022 window.
In the last Nintendo Direct, in September, we had a broader view of the fear of metroid and bayonet. Although the last release of Samus has already been released, the third part of Bayonetta is still to come. We can see some more details for this game later today.
Many Nintendo fans will be eager to get their hands on any news about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. While it’s slated to release sometime this year, there’s nothing to suggest it’s coming in the first half of 2022. Another look at the game would be welcome, but there are a few other games that Nintendo will likely highlight first.
