Nintendo Direct on March 8: How to Watch, and What to Expect


Nintendo will host a Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow, showing off some upcoming games for both the Nintendo Switch and the 3DS.

The Direct will be 30 minutes long and will focus on games launching this year. Specifically Nintendo has teased new details for Mario Tennis Aces, the new Mario Tennis game coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Fans of the Mario Tennis series will be hoping to hear more about the game’s story mode. Mario Tennis Aces is the first Mario Tennis title to have a single player story mode since the Game Boy Advance.

Fans have already starting speculating on what Nintendo will reveal, with many hoping to hear new details on Metroid Prime 4, the upcoming Yoshi game, or the Pokémon Switch title. Fans should temper their expectations, however, as Nintendo is likely to save most of its big games for this summer at E3.

The Direct will be available on Youtube or the Nintendo Direct website at 4pm CT tomorrow. Nintendo has not yet confirmed whether the Direct will be livestreamed, or released as a video.
