    I think that will be the primary purpose of this Direct, rather than to announce anything particularly new. Quite a few announced games lacking solid dates at the moment. If Nintendo are sticking to their plan of spreading out releases we can probably guess when they're due.

    Kirby is out mid-March. Nintendo Labo is out at the end of April. Tropical Freeze is out early May. Hyrule Warriors for late May(?). I can see Mario Tennis Aces coming out at some point in June as Nintendo like to release competitive/sports games around this time. Mario Kart, Arms and Splatoon have all released around that sort of peroid.

    I can imagine Yoshi being given a full title and perhaps a rough release date (autumn?), but I think that will be it for first party and exclusive software. E3 is getting closer and that would be the best time to show off Fire Emblem or a new Pokemon. I seriously doubt we'll hear anything of Octopath Traveller or Metroid either, unfortunately.

    On the third-party front we already have a release date for Dark Souls (but may see some Switch footage). They may well reveal the Bravely Default ports, along with footage and dates for both that and the The World Ends With You. There's plenty of indie games without dates either. Runner3 and WarGroove being the biggest names.

    @THFourteen Yes. The developers have teased this a while back. Showed off some art work of a couple of characters holding Switches.

    Or something like this. Not how I chose to remember it, apparently.

    I think there was a Nintendo life article saying Tennis was scheduled for June - some retailer let it slip.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Sounds about right to me. There's bound to be some new indie or other third party remasters or whatever on the go too.

    Steredenn: Binary Stars

    An excellent roguelike horizontal shooter that may be one of the best modern examples of the genre. Loads of different weapons, power ups and variety. Really difficult, really addictive and one of my favourite games of the year so far.

    What do people reckon is the best turn based strategy game on switch? Been playing Into the Breach lately and need something else to scratch that itch...

    Options are Rabbids or Disgaea as far as I can tell so far. Would be tempted by Rabbids if it was cheap!

    Yeah. Ive not played the others (except Heist which is lovely) but Rabbids was really good. And pretty funny in places. Seems a shame not to give it a go.

    I think TH was inventing a list of games he would like to buy (but not count to the 10/12 game challenge because his friend's brother's kid bought it and lent it to him. TH giving him the cash and waiting outside the shop being irrelevant).

    :-D

    What a load of shit. Nothing for me apart from octopath and maybe the south park game altho Id have preferred stock of truth having never played it.

    Rest just crappy multiplayer or platform games.

    Where there any actual new games? I mean this is great if you don't own any other console. Ever.

    Also Southpark in 6 weeks with added dlc...

    Might be tempted to double dip on that one.

    Octopath traveller is released on 13th July if I remember correctly.

    Mario tennis aces out in June as we all knew.

    Dark souls out 25th May.

    They are the headlines that had me in that direct.
