With Nintendo publishing its latest financial report, the company has reshared and updated its list of upcoming releases.

We’ve had plenty of brand new releases to etch into the calendars over the last period, what with that beefy February Nintendo Direct. The updated schedule includes April’s releases, which is why the recently-released Nintendo Switch Sports makes an appearance.

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 from Bayonetta 3 and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

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.
