UPDATED - Nintendo Direct Showcases New Games

While the Nintendo Direct leaks weren't entirely accurate on some things - including the title of the upcoming Kirby game coming to Nintendo Switch (Kirby and the Forgotten Land), they were right about many elements of the huge show.

In the latest Nintendo Direct we got a release date and gameplay trailer for upcoming releases Bayonetta 3 and Kirby and the Forgotten Land as well as new content for Splatoon 3, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and plenty more.

Watch the exciting show back if you missed it below!

Nintendo Direct Leaks Reveal New Games

The Nintendo Switch is set to have some massive new titles revealed at Nintendo Direct this month, that is if leaks are correct.

This includes Kirby: Discovery of the Stars, some more insight into Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, more looks into Splatoon 3, and even Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, among others!

We know 2022 will be stacked for the Switch with tons of massive releases, but these leaks take the cake and sets the standard for a very hype Nintendo Direct to come.


The new Nintendo Direct leaks suggest the show will kick off with the new Kirby: Discovery of the Stars game, then go into Splatoon 3, Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta, and finish off with Mario + Rabbids Spars of Hope.

No matter how the Nintendo Direct schedule breaks down, it's going to be a fantastic show if these leaks are true!
