Given that wording, we have an idea of what to expect. Shiny Diamond Pokémon and Shiny Pearl, Mario Party Superstars, Metroid Dread, Advance Wars 1 + 2 Reboot Camp and Shin Megami Tensei V all will be out by the end of the year, so some (or even all) are logical assumptions. The final DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate It is also scheduled for the rest of the year, so you can also make an appearance.
Meanwhile, rumors have suggested that Nintendo is working on a new Switch controller and potentially an expansion to Switch Online that adds Game Boy games. Official confirmation could come in the Direct.
However, “focusing primarily” on the 2021 holiday games leaves the door open for games to come later. In addition to games that Nintendo has confirmed, such as the Breath of the wild continuation, Splatoon 3 and Bayonetta 3, we may hear about the long rumored one Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
