February Nintendo Direct!
It's that time of year again, gamer bros and sisters! Nintendo will be presenting a Nintendo Direct tomorrow February 8th at 2PM Pacific (5PM Eastern). It will cover a bunch of games planned for release in the first half of 2023. I expect we will see a lot about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and a few other large announcements. I don't expect anything Star Fox related, not even any current rumors about that.
There's a rumor going around related to talk of Nintendo skipping E3 this year. They say Nintendo doesn't have many games to announce in the latter half of 2023. Even if this is true, I don't personally think it's because they lack games to release, but rather that they may be holding back releases to polish them up and have them available for whatever the successor of the Nintendo Switch will be. The Switch has been a phenomenal success, but as sales start to slow down after 6 years of winning, I expect they'll have a new console ready for release within a year or so. If they keep the same pace of game releases as they did on the Nintendo Switch, they'll have another hit on their hands no problem! All that said, I doubt they'll talk about a Switch successor until at least after Tears of the Kingdom has been out for a few months.
excited, but i’m hoping too high on the game i want to see.
