Nintendo Direct September 2022: Legend of Zelda, Fire Emblem and more

As expected, Nintendo pulled out all the stops for its fall Direct showcase with several shocking announcements on Twitter, in between smaller but no less exciting news. As is usually the case, he didn’t announce everything fans could expect (ahem, no signs of life for Metroid Prime 4 or a remaster Prime trilogy), but it was a good performance. Here are the best Direct announcements and trailers.

The last game in The Legend of Zelda the franchise will be subtitled tears of the kingdom. Nintendo continues to deliver the briefest but most enticing trailers for this game. My colleague Jay Peters covered the news, trying to figure out what to do with the little that had been shown tears of the kingdom. It is released on May 12, 2023.

No release date has been shared. Oh, and plenty more N64 games are coming to Nintendo’s Switch Online service in the coming months.

Fire Emblem Engage more like that good stuff

Followed Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a new game in the series subtitled Engage. As for its similarities with Three Houses, there’s the classic strategic combat system, plus some open-area roaming. It would be great if there were more person-to-person relationships, but it’s not yet clear if we’ll achieve that with this game. Anyway, I’m a happy camper. It is released on January 20, 2023.

Tunic brings its retro charm to Switch

Tunic, a Zelda-like title known for its gorgeous art style and unique gameplay language, is coming to Nintendo Switch on September 27, which is soon. Jay Peters reviewed this game for us earlier this year when it launched on PC and Xbox, and he said it rekindled his love of strategy guides. If that doesn’t make sense, it will once you start playing.

Bayonet 3 looks incredibly fun – a good sign

Bayonet 3 comes out on October 28, which is soon. Nintendo showed off a quick trailer for the game, which is full of new and returning characters indulging in the series’ fast-paced, on-screen action. Fans have been waiting for quite some time to get their hands on this game since it was announced a few years ago.
