The new Nintendo Direct has presented very juicy news for its hybrid console in all that remains of 2022 and part of 2023. Mythical franchises that return, a few indies, genres that the console tenaciously cultivates… an avalanche of proposals that make Nintendo’s strategy unique, and that has culminated in the long-awaited announcement of the date and title for the new ‘Zelda’.

Fire Emblem Engage

The next installment of ‘Fire Emblem’ arrives on January 20, with a return to the traditional gameplay of turn-based battles with a high strategic component. The trailer presented has been generous in terms of showing mechanics, so we have been able to verify that there will again be scenarios with boxes to move the characters and that Marth, one of the icons of the saga, will return.

At the beginning of 2023 comes this remake of the fourth installment of the franchise, which made history in 2008 by being the first in the series to appear on a Nintendo console. Since 2015 we haven’t had any new installments of the ghost-hunting franchise using snapshots, so this story in which our heroine returns to the mysterious island where she lost her memory is a must for lovers of survival-horror smooth, especially considering that the original Wii title never left Japan.

Octopath Traveler II

Eight new travelers star in this all-new sequel to Square Enix’s surprise hit, scheduled for release on February 24. Each one of them, as the trailer details, has its corresponding characteristics and, above all, an independent story that we will discover as we learn to make them fight. Delicious old-school aesthetics for a must-play game for fans of classic role-playing.

Goldeneye for Nintendo 64

Users of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack have received a good number of N64 games that will be arriving between the rest of 2022 and early 2023. They are ‘Pilotwings 64’, ‘Mario Party’ and its first two sequels, ‘ Pokémon Stadium’ and its second part, ‘1080 Snowboarding’ and ‘Excitebike 64’. And as a climax, and without a date yet, the great console classic: ‘Goldeneye’, which will have online multiplayer and which coincides with Rare’s announcement that the 4K remastered game will soon also come to Game Pass.

Pikmin 4

Shigeru Miyamoto has made his inevitable appearance at the Nintendo Direct to make some announcements: that the Mario movie is coming this spring, that he’s having a blast with the mobile game ‘Pikmin Bloom’ and that there will be ‘Pikmin 4’. At the moment there are no more details about it beyond that we will descend to ground level to accompany the Pikmin from the same perspective.

Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe

And more Wii remakes: this game arrives on February 24, a new version of the official Nintendo glutton title that was simply called ‘Kirby’s Adventure’ in Europe a little over ten years ago. An action platform full of minigames and in which you can collaborate with up to three friends, each with different powers and controlling key characters from the franchise.

‘The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’

A definitive title and a date (May 12, 2023) for one of the most anticipated games on the platform. The sequel to ‘Breath of the Wild’, perhaps the best game in the Nintendo hybrid catalog, has not yet revealed anything about its plot, but for now we have already seen that verticality is going to have a key importance in the adventure.
