Nintendo just wrapped its big September 2022 Direct showcase, and it was jam-packed with exciting gaming news. The highlight was that we finally got a name and release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel, but there was a wealth of other great announcements, including a new Fire Emblem game and, after years of waiting, the official reveal of Pikmin 4. While I’m still disappointed that there was no trailer for the upcoming Mario movie starring Chris Pratt, because of everything announced in the Direct, I know there will be plenty of games to keep me busy until that comes out.
Links to all of our coverage of the show are below.
- JNintendo will announce a release date for the delayed Advance Wars reboot “once it has been determined,” the company told Axios.
Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp, a Nintendo Switch remaster of the first two Advance Wars titles, was delayed from an April launch due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It was absent from Nintendo’s big Direct showcase today.
The new Zelda game has a name, but there were other cool debuts
- JI’m convinced Tears of the Kingdom is going to feature time travel in a big way.
The new trailer for the game is the second to seemingly show Link reversing an object through time. The game’s logo is an ouroboros. And in a press release, Nintendo says that “Link’s endless adventure begins again” on the game’s release date, May 12th. If only I could time travel to then.
It’s releasing on May 12th, 2023
