Nintendo shows its biggest releases for the first half of 2023 in its Nintendo Direct livestream, and some of them are available now.
It looks like 2023 may be the biggest year for gaming in years, and Wednesday's Nintendo Direct made it just a bit bigger. The company announced its slate of releases for the first half of the year, highlighting The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom ahead of its May 12 release, Pikmin 4 (which hits the Switch on July 21) and Metroid Prime Remastered. That last title, originally released on GameCube in 2002, was a nice surprise -- made even sweeter by the fact that you can download it on the eShop right now.
The other big news from Wednesday's presentation was the addition of several Game Boy and Game Boy Advance classics to the Nintendo Switch Online service. Super Mario Land 2, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, Wario Land 3, Warioware Inc., and Mario Kart Super Circuit are some of the new games that are now available on the platform.
