Zippo is a notorious leaker of gaming content, and they recently noted that Mario Kart 9 is set to be announced as part of the first Nintendo Direct event of the year.

They wrote: “I’m hearing that the first Direct of the year will take place this month [February 2022] and could be as soon as next week. 

“This week is being ruled out because of Nintendo’s imminent financial briefings. Let me go out and say it…

“It’s gonna be a big one. I’m not sure of the content at this point in time, but it’s safe to assume that Kirby And The Forgotten Land, Splatoon 3, Advance Wars 1+2, the heavily rumoured Xenoblade 3, and a new Fire Emblem title will likely be featured in this one. 

“Nintendo has a metric sh*t ton to talk about, so I expect some huge bombs to be dropped in this presentation.

“Also, if you made Super Bowl sized money bets on this new Mario Kart not being real, you’re going to be out of a lot of money.”
