The Kyoto firm has just spoiled its fans with a package of announcements at the heart of a memorable Nintendo Direct.
This Nintendo Direct will have been long overdue, but better late than never, especially after such a presentation. This year’s summer conferences have been a drip, with many spilling over into September. This is particularly the case of the Kyoto firm, which took its time before giving news of its end-of-year program. After forty minutes of presentation, Switch players now know what sauce they will be eating in the coming months, and as much to say that the buffet promises !
From Zeldafrom Kirbyfrom pikmine and even new licenses, this direct has put the package with more than twenty announcements, as much to say that the calendar of Nintendo will be very busy. To save you from getting lost in this torrent of new titles, we have concocted a summary of the new features that you absolutely must not miss!
Fire Emblem Engage
The presentation started strong with the announcement of a new installment in the strategy game franchise Fire Emblem. Lack of luck for Nintendo, this new title had made the trunk in a leak that occurred last June. All the leaker’s words have been confirmed in a grandiose trailer: this episode takes a softer anime-style artistic direction and offers a story that honors the great heroes of the license. It will be possible to summon emblematic characters such as Marth thanks to rings that will have to be recovered from the claws of our enemies. The rendezvous on the battlefield is given for January 20, 2023.
Fans of Olimar and the little extraterrestrial plants had the joy of discovering the first excerpts from Pikmin 4, the long-awaited sequel to the adorable franchise. After an excellent episode 3 on Wii U, now the world of pikmine seems to be taking a whole new direction with a very ambitious new opus! A few images of the game were shown without revealing the gameplay, but a screenshot reveals a new third-person view giving a feeling of grandeur to the world of pikmine. The little creatures will make their comeback in 2023.
Master Detective Archive Raincode
This is a very complicated name for a game that is likely to be talked about. The teams behind Danganronpa come back to bring their genius in a new investigation game that already seems irresistible. The famous graphic style of the franchise Danganronpa and the music of Masafumi Takada: everything is there for a dark atmosphere at will. Yuma, a young amnesiac detective will have to solve investigations alongside a ghost named Shinigami who has haunted him since they formed a pact. We will have to wait until spring 2023 to discover these adventures.
Kirby Return to Dreamland Deluxe
To celebrate Kirby’s 30th birthday, the little pink ball will be entitled to a remake of one of his adventures. It’s a Wii episode that’s going to be sublimated in Kirby Return to Dreamland Deluxe. New powers and new mini-games await players in this new release scheduled for February 24, 2023.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
This is the big announcement that everyone has been waiting for, and it is with this news that Nintendo has closed its presentation. Following Breath of the Wild finally has its title and release date. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will land on Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. Only eight months left before discovering the plains and skies of Hyrule in this new opus which promises to be massive. The few new gameplay extracts send dreams! However, we regret the absence of ports of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess HD whose rumors have not stopped talking about them in recent days.
