June starts off strong with Mario Strikers: Battle League and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, just two of the games that were announced in February. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (another February announcement!) and Splatoon 3 got new or confirmed release dates in April, and both hitting in the next few months. The recently-announced Pokémon Scarlet and Violet holds on to a 2022 release, as do Bayonetta 3 and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.
With the release of Nintendo’s most recent financial report, the firm has reshared and updated their list of planned titles. With the February Nintendo Direct, we’ve got plenty of fresh releases to mark on our calendars over the previous several months. The new calendar covers April’s releases, which explains why the freshly released Nintendo Switch Sports appears.
Of course, there have also been a few big delays, the biggest being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, which is now firmly in the ‘Spring 2023’ window. And joining Metroid Prime 4 in the TBA zone is Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, which was delayed to an unspecified date earlier this year.
