Sound the alarms, tell your friends, and take a short-notice day off work, everyone! Nintendo has just announced their next Nintendo Direct broadcast, and it is gonna be a big one. The presentation is scheduled for tomorrow night at 3pm Pacific/6pm Eastern, with a rough 40-minute run-time all about what’s coming real soon for the Nintendo Switch.
All eyes on the Switch’s 2019 lineup

Naturally, we can expect to see more about games that are already confirmed for release this year. Certainly, this month alone is already packed with a ton of releases we’ll likely hear more about! The Link’s Awakening remake, Daemon X Machina, and Dragon Quest XI S all come to mind. Of course, we also have Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword & Shield in the months to come, as the advert notes.
However, what we’re really excited about are all the new reveals! Not long ago, GameStop listings revealed about a dozen unidentified SKUs for unannounced Switch software; an Overwatch port and remastered versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Rogue might get likely reveals! Meanwhile, passionate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans are eager to finally play as Banjo-Kazooie‘s titular bear and bird duo; on top of that, all signs are pointing to the game’s fourth downloadable challenger hailing from Neo Geo giant SNK Corporation. Could we see a new star from Metal Slug, King of Fighters, or Samurai Showdown? I can’t wait to find out who’s next on the roster!
Personally, I would also love a new Wii U port like Super Mario 3D World or maybe The Wonderful 101. After all, there is only a small handful of must-haves in the preceding console’s library remaining that I feel should be ported to the home-portable hybrid Switch. What do you want to see during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct? Cross your fingers with us and let us know in the comments!
