Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, GoldenEye, Bayonetta 3 and All the Major Nintendo Direct News 1

Nintendo hit us with a bunch of exciting announcements in Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct livestream, revealing the title and release date of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel, a re-release of N64 classic GoldenEye 007, a new Fire Emblem game, the next wave of Mario Kart 8 tracks and more.

Let’s run through the lot.

  • Pilotwings 64, Mario Party 1 and Mario Party 2 will also join the Nintendo Switch Online N64 library this year. Mario Party 3, Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2, 1080 Snowboarding and Excitebike 64 will be added in 2023.
  • Pikmin 4 will come out in 2023. We didn’t see any gameplay for the real-time strategy and puzzle game, but you can play from the Pikmins’ perspective near the ground rather than the series’ traditional isometric viewpoint.
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s next batch of booster course DLC will include Merry Mountain from Mario Kart Tour and Peach Gardens from Mario Kart DS (along with two other unrevealed tracks), and launches this holiday season.
  • It Takes Two, the acclaimed co-op adventure, will come to Switch on Nov. 4.
  • Tunic, the indie-developed puzzle-solving adventure, hits Switch on Sept. 27.
