Nintendo Direct Predictions for March 8: “Stone Cold Locks”
Mario Tennis Aces Info + Release Date
The only thing that’s actually confirmed tomorrow aside from knowing that the direct will be about 3DS and Nintendo Switch games is that Mario Tennis Aces will definitely be making an appearance. That much is confirmed already via a press release that we received. Simple as that really.
New or Recently Revealed Nindies Getting Some Screen Time
Nintendo loves its indie games (affectionately known as Nindies). They have admirably filled the gap in between major third and first-party releases for the Switch. Fully expect Nintendo to give at least a few upcoming games some time during this Direct. Tiny Build recently revealed quite a few, such as Hello Neighbor and Streets of Rogue.
Yoshi Game Info + Release Date
The next Yoshi game remains somewhat mysterious despite everyone kind of knowing what a Yoshi game usually looks like and that it will release this year. Yet, we’re still waiting on significant information. I doubt Nintendo is going to wait all the way until E3 this year to drop a date. Tomorrow feels right for that.
3DS Is Still Alive Highlight Reel
The 3DS is unlikely to receive any major first-party support going forward as Nintendo’s focus shifts to the Switch as time goes on. However, there is still some third-party support for the popular handheld and hell, Nintendo might surprise us with a new title or two as well. Atlus’ The Alliance Alive and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux will probably stop by along with, of course, the bizarre Detective Pikachu.
Nintendo Direct Predictions for March 8
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Switch Info + Release Date
Although just revealed a couple of months ago, considering it’s just a port of a Wii U game, it wouldn’t be outrageous to already get an idea of what the release date will be for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch.
Project Octopath Full Title + Release Date
Project Octopath is one of the most anticipated JRPGs of this year and it’s releasing exclusively for the Switch. However, it still doesn’t have a release date or an official title yet. Expect that to change tomorrow.
More on Nintendo Labo
It won’t be long before Nintendo Labo is out. It’s very unlikely that there will be any new or different kits revealed, considering pre-orders are already out for the ones that exist. However, still expect Nintendo to heavily promote it tomorrow to hype more people up for it.
Virtual Console Revealed
Every time we get our hopes up for Virtual Console we get burned. However it feels like we’re really due for news on Virtual console. Hopefully today is the day.
Those are the most likely (or even confirmed) games to appear tomorrow. On page two we break down some more shadowy/rumory possibilities.
