Gaming giant Nintendo has announced a new episode of its live streaming series. The event kicks off on February 9, 2022 at 2pm PST and is expected to last around 40 minutes.
For India, this would be February 10 at 3:30 am. Marking the first Nintendo Direct show of the year, the event will focus on Switch games launching in the first half of 2022. The full presentation will be streamed on the official nintendo direct page and them Youtube channelwhere you can even set a reminder for when it goes live.
based on previous leaks, one of the most anticipated games on the platform, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is expected to launch in the second half, or more precisely, in November. So it’s safe to assume we’ll get a trailer, either during E3 or the July Direct event.
Nintendo is also expected to announce a few new ports coming to its ecosystem, the largest of which was recently leaked by a French retailer. According to the WTT list, a port for Batman: Arkham Collection It is expected to be released on August 8, 2022, costing €59.99 (about Rs 5,120).
However, the title is misleading and makes fans believe that rocksteady was porting his original trilogy: Asylum, City, and Knight to Switch. New reports indicate that the final chapter will be replaced by Arkham Origins, the prequel released in 2013 that was developed by a different studio: WB Games Montreal. This makes sense, given that Arkham Knight is pretty intensive, which is something the Nintendo Switch released in 2017 would struggle to run.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is scheduled to launch on the 25th of next month. So, we could expect to see some in-depth story details and co-op play. Chances are slim, but Nintendo is likely to show a sneak peek of the animated Mario movie, news on mario kart 9and some exciting updates for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
