The first Nintendo Direct of 2022 was jam packed with surprising revivals, updates, and greatly-anticipated sequels. Mario Strikers, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Nintendo Switch Sports, and Chrono Cross are just a few to name.
Despite It Takes Two and Forza Horizon 5 dominating the wins at The Game Awards, Nintendo managed to take home just one award.
Nintendo received multiple nominations this year, including Metroid Dread being nominated for both Game of the Year and Best Action/Adventure.
Despite losing a long-running NPD victory streak last month, Nintendo Switch is back on top thanks to the OLED revision.
As part of E3 2021, Nintendo held the direct many have been looking forward to. Metroid, Advance Wars, WarioWare, and Legend of Zelda were able to show up to the party.
