The June 2024 Nintendo Direct has come and gone, leaving a wave of excitement in its wake. Nintendo packed the presentation with announcements for the latter half of the year, giving Switch owners a treasure trove of upcoming titles to look forward to. Here's a quick rundown of the highlights:


Mario & Luigi: Brothership Leads the Charge


It's a long-awaited reunion! After nearly a decade, Mario & Luigi are gracing our consoles once again with Mario & Luigi: Brothership. The short but sweet teaser showcased their iconic teamwork as they tackled vibrant environments and quirky enemies with their usual comedic flair. Mario & Luigi: Brothership is set to arrive on November 7th, making it the perfect way to bring some lighthearted holiday cheer to your Switch. .


Beyond the Brothers: A Bounty of New Adventures Awaits

The excitement goes beyond Mario & Luigi. The Direct offered a treasure trove of upcoming titles for Switch owners to sink their teeth into:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom (September 26, 2024): Get ready for a Zelda twist! This time, you won't be wielding the Master Sword as Link, but as Princess Zelda herself, wielding the Tri Rod to create "Echoes" of objects and enemies. Imagine solving puzzles by duplicating items, fighting alongside friendly monster copies, or strategically using enemy echoes to overcome obstacles. This unique mechanic promises fresh gameplay and tons of variation between playthroughs.



  • Metroid Prime 4: Beyond (2025 Release Window): After years of anticipation, Metroid Prime 4 finally emerged with a gameplay reveal! Get ready to suit up as Samus Aran once again and explore a Metroidvania world filled with intense exploration and thrilling combat.
