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.

You can check your local timezone for the broadcast times and watch the Direct here.
