Nintendo save up their announcements to drop in big balls of Nintendo Direct goodness, and this morning’s was no exception. Here are some highlights.

Remember Wii Sports? Of course you do! Well, now it has a successor, including tennis, bowling, chambara, big ball soccer, badminton and volleyball, and it’s coming on April 29.

If you’re after a slightly more realistic soccer experience, then the return of Mario Strikers will be welcome when it arrives on June 10.

While there’s still no new Mario Kart on the horizon, there is a big ball of paid DLC on its way. The first of six waves of the Booster Course Pass, which will deliver a whopping 48 new courses over time, is set to drop on March 18. Grab Mario Kart 8 Deluxe now at JB Hi-Fi.

Fire Emblem fans should scribble June 24 into their diaries, for that’s when Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is set to release.

Splatoon 3 is still on its way, with an undated release planned for later this year.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been given a September release window.

Square Enix’s Triangle Strategy has been dated – and it’s not far off at all, launching on March 4. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the next big Nintendo release, arriving March 25 – complete with Kirby car! Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.

Hmm, still no new Nintendogs
