As for what we can expect during the showcase, nothing has been officially confirmed yet. But going off of what the last direct gave us - with the likes of After Love EP, OlliOlli World, Chicory: A Colorful Tale, and more all making an appearance - we’re sure that tomorrow’s direct will give us a load more games to add to our wishlist.
In other Nintendo news, it was recently revealed during the company’s 2021 fiscal year financial report that Nintendo Switch console sales are down 20% year-on-year. The gaming powerhouse blames this decline on component shortages, meaning it isn’t producing as many units of the handheld hybrid console as it previously was. This is also the case for the Nintendo Switch OLED console that launched back in October 2021.
