Highlights from the February 2022 Nintendo Direct

Nintendo kicked off 2022 with a massive Nintendo Direct, we got updates on games we already knew about, DLC for games that will never end and brand new stuff from first and third parties.

Here’s everything that was in the Nintendo Direct for February 2022.

To view the Nintendo Direct video in its entirety, visit Nintendo Australia’s Nintendo Direct website.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles 3: A vast world awaits in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the next game in the acclaimed RPG series from developer MONOLITHSOFT.

Players will step into the roles of protagonists Noah and Mio amid turmoil between the hostile nations of Keves and Agnus. Six characters hailing from those nations will take part in a grand tale with “life” as its central theme. Explore a new world that will connect the futures of both Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, launching for Nintendo Switch in September 2022.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass: A total of 48 remastered courses from across the Mario Kart series will be coming to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as paid downloadable content.

Eight courses will be released at a time over six waves by the end of 2023, which can all be played locally or online. 

Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

Mario Strikers: Battle League Football: Prepare for Strike, a five-on-five football (soccer)-like sport with no rules – do whatever it takes to win! Up to eight players – four on each team – can compete against each other on one Nintendo Switch console.

In addition to individual matches, online play will let 20 players join up and compete to become the world’s top club. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football launches for Nintendo Switch on 10th June. Pre-orders in Nintendo eShop begin shortly after the presentation.
