In other Nintendo Switch news, a Nintendo Direct will be happening on Thursday this week. This is a proper traditional format Nintendo Direct and not a mini or a partner showcase, which should make for some good announcements. It will last 40 minutes and will “mostly” focus on games coming to Nintendo Switch in the first half of 2023.
