What Will Be in the Nintendo Direct?

Nintendo hasn't told us much about what's going to be in the broadcast — it rarely does — but we do know it will mostly focus on Switch games set for release in the first half of 2022.

There are a few titles that could make appearances. Splatoon 3 and Bayonetta 3 are both set for 2022 releases, though we don't know when. Advance Wars 1+2 is coming in spring following a delay. Kirby and the Forgotten Land should arrive March 25. And, of course, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild could finally get a release date.
