As you might remember, just the other day, we had people know that there would be a new Nintendo Direct stream at midnight between Wednesday and Thursday. Well, that stream has come and gone now. So just when I was about to write-up a summary of that very stream, I/we received the following message from Nintendo Sweden:

“In the coming months, a lot of games will be released, both first-rate games and third-party games to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in completely different genres. During the night’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo featured information about more than 40 different titles that will be released to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in the coming months.Some of the highlights are that DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus as well as L.A. Noire and Resident Evil: Revelations will be released to Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo also revealed that several arcade classics will be released to Nintendo Switch and that a new Mario Party will be released to Nintendo 3DS. This game contains 100 of the best Mario Party series mini games throughout the ages. This full-featured presentation also provided more details about the upcoming Games Project OCTOPATH TRAVELER from Square Enix, Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Below is a summary of the games that were shown.” Nintendo Sweden
