As for what we can expect from Nintendo's forthcoming showcase, one game that immediately springs to mind is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Considering we're now just a few months away from the sequel launching on May 12, it's about time Nintendo took us deeper into the game's inner workings with an extended look at gameplay, or a new trailer at the least.
Elsewhere, a Pikmin 4 release date was listed by a retailer for later this year in May earlier this week. If this release date proves to be genuine, Nintendo will likely both show off new footage or a trailer for the long-awaited sequel in the new Direct, as well as reveal the release date for Pikmin 4.
This Nintendo Direct was rumored last week from a few sources around the internet. One point, interestingly enough, was that a Walmart employee claimed to have received promotional material for the Advance War 1+2 collection, outlining a release later this month in February. We could see the two remastered games at the showcase later this week.
