There are rumors that more SNES games will be added to Nintendo Switch Online, as the service is down for maintenance shortly after Nintendo Direct ended.

Shigesato Itoi, the creator of the Mother series, just tweeted about Nintendo Direct. Maybe nothing. Or it could mean an English translation of Mother 3 or an Earthbound port to Switch. The Mother series is a clever parody of Japanese RPGs while still being fantastic Japanese RPGs. Indie developers really need to check out this series.

A Metroid Prime HD remaster could be a great stopgap while Nintendo prepares Metroid Prime 4 for release – which could take two years and could be a Switch Pro launch game. May be.

Nintendo Blogger Zippo suggests Persona 4 Golden is coming to Switch and may be announced later. Visually one of the most original games around, all artists need to check this game out. It’s old, but good. Will it be announced?

Speaking of great UX, casual board game 1-2-Switch really impressed when it was released during the Switch launch – it sold 3 million copies. It would be good to see where Nintendo can take this game, especially in Switch OLED. Nintendo doesn’t need to use it to convince us of Switch’s strengths, and could focus on gameplay.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp, and Splatoon 3 all look likely to be revealed at tonight’s Nintendo Direct. We’d love to see what Nintendo could do with a new Splatoon UX.

Welcome to what could be a hectic night of announcements. We’re hoping for something on Switch Pro, even a logo, and maybe news of the official name and Breath of the Wild 2 tease.
