It was confirmed this week that Nintendo would be hosting another Nintendo Direct, and fans have predicted what will be coming on Wednesday 9th February 2022.
There are a number of games that are apparently set to be revealed on the night, including major new entries into franchises such as Splatoon, Mario Kart and Xenoblade Chronicles.
Whilst we will be finding out what is coming on the night itself, it hasn’t stopped fans from
Here’s everything you need to know about the predictions that fans have been making ahead of the first Nintendo Direct of 2022.
Nintendo Direct Predictions
Users on the r/GamingLeaksandRumours have been making their predictions ever since the event was confirmed by Nintendo.
One Redditor gave a pretty comprehensive list in terms of what they’re expecting. They wrote: “My predictions for tonight. Something BOTW2 related maybe, [or an] announcement of a Zelda direct next month.
“Splatoon 3, so much Splatoon, Monster Hunter DLC trailer. Tease for either new Fire Emblem or Xenoblade game and Big Closing Surprise is a new Mario game is coming out to synergise with the Chris Pratt movie, maybe Odyssey 2.”
Another user would give a more general view of what they want to see, harking back to the ‘classic’ days of the event.
They said: “More than wanting a specific game, I really hope they surprise us and give a lot of awesome things to look forward to.
“During the 3DS era, with Satoru iwata, directs always felt so packed and awesome and the game we got was always awesome. With the switch the directs are kind of underwhelming, more business-y.
“There’s not many Nintendo games and the ones there are (that don’t come from the switch to any extent) end up feeling like an early access indie clone with some of the base content being dripped to it for a year until it’s “complete” (but still far lesser than previous iterations, missing that Nintendo polish)…
“The only specific game I would like to see is Tomodachi life U, which they killed and savaged to make Miitomo and ANCH.”
Hopefully, Nintendo will be giving players a huge amount to get excited about in the next year with the first Nintendo Direct of 2022!
