All the ads from the latest Nintendo Direct

February’s Nintendo Direct is over, and it left us with plenty of titles and trailers, certainly more than we expected in our most optimistic predictions.

It didn’t become the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, nor Bayonetta 3 nor, clearly, Metroid Prime 4. And neither Silksong’s rastro. But what on other occasions seems to have been the reason for desperation here has even disappeared, as we have certainly helped the better Direct in much more time.

The first to be introduced is Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, a Fire Emblem muse set in the same universe as Three Houses. It will go on sale exclusively for Switch on June 24.

After that, it was the turn of one of the titles we’ve been waiting for the most in this house, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp. Remastering of Intelligent Systems’ two classic turn-based strategy games goes on sale April 8 and includes new dual-voice characters, option to re-roll or speed up battles, local online and multiplayer modes and news.

This version of Square Enix’s classic JRPG includes a number of improvements, such as an amplified soundtrack or the ability to disable enemy encounters to focus the story.

A safe bet for this Direct was the presence of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, whose launch is scheduled for March 25, and in this case the Japanese company presented a new trailer with Mouthful Mode, in which Kirby aspired to scenario to achieve new transformations. by car, motor expenses or Álvaro Arbeloa.

There will be new sports, such as football or volleyball, and will be announced on April 29. But that’s not all: the Japanese company has confirmed that a free post-launch update will add a new sport, golf, and that in a few days, from February 18 to 20, will hold an online beta at which users can participate. with an active Nintendo Switch Online membership.

Additionally, Mercury Steam is planning another park for April in which a Boss Rush mode will be added.

The first will arrive on March 18, and the last at the end of 2023. The price of the DLC is €24.99, but users of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack will be able to download it for free.
