The latest Nintendo Direct event that aired on February 9 brought a wealth of information about the games coming to Nintendo Switch. Let’s take a look at Gamehub with the biggest names from this event!
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes
Fire Emblem Warriors will return with a sequel that revolves around the blockbuster Fire Emblem: Three Houses. With many locations and characters from “Three Houses” combined with the fighting style of “Warriors”, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes promises to give players a different experience and story than before. The game will launch on June 24.
Advance Wars 1 + 2: Reboot Camp
Although it has been announced and delayed, Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp still appears in this event. During launch, the publisher demonstrated the reinstall feature, as well as rewinding the game for a faster experience. In addition, the characters are also voiced in the new version. Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp will be released on April 8.
no man’s sky
More than 5 years after its release on PS4 and PC, No Man’s Sky is finally coming to Nintendo Switch. While it might seem like the title had to sacrifice quite a bit in terms of graphics to make the leap, the sci-fi adventure is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer.
Mario Strikers: Battle League
Nintendo’s original soccer title on GameCube and Wii, Super Mario Strikers is back on Switch with Mario Strikers: Battle League. This 5v5 game has a strong focus on offense, with special tackles and kicks to make things a bit more frantic than standard ball games. Players can equip character items to adjust stats like passing speed and accuracy (the Hyper Strike ability can make a big difference in a match). Mario Strikers: Battle League is coming June 10 and players can pre-order it starting today.
Nintendo Direct offers a different look at Splatoon 3. In the Salmon Run: Next Wave PvE mode, the Inklings will fight the Salmonid boss. This mode also features a number of other formidable enemies, each with their own unique attacks that force the player to constantly move. Similar to the Salmon Run mode in Splatoon 2, the element of mayhem and challenge is a must in Part 3. Splatoon 3 will launch this summer on Nintendo Switch.
Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition
The underrated successor to Chrono Trigger will return via an updated version on Nintendo Switch. Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers Edition features over 40 different playable characters. Players can even disable enemy encounters in this version. The sound of the game has been improved. Fans can start experiencing the game starting on April 7.
Portal: Companion Collection
Portal and Portal 2 are finally coming to Nintendo Switch, with support for offline, online, and split-screen multiplayer. Although there is no specific release date, Portal: Companion Collection will be available on Nintendo Switch later this year.
nintendo switch sports
Nintendo Switch Sports is inspired by Wii Sports and will include a variety of sports games such as tennis, bowling, soccer, badminton, and volleyball. The game also comes with a Ring Fit Adventure leg accessory for penalty kicks mode, allowing players to kick to score. All Switch devices support online and offline gaming for all sports. Nintendo Switch Sports will launch on April 29, and a free fall update will add golf.
mario kart 8 deluxe
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is already an extremely complete racing game, but soon this game will be even more perfect. Nintendo is rebuilding select tracks from the series as paid DLC. The Booster Course Pass has a total of six sections, with eight tracks each, and will be available until the end of 2023. Choco Mountain and Tokyo Blur’s N64 will be included in the first batch of the March 18 release for the same price. .
xenoblade chronicles 3
The final announcement of the event was Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The trailer, while not too detailed, still leaves the impression of some great battles and a mysterious woman wearing a veil. Players can experience Xenoblade Chronicles 3 starting in September.
