Nintendo is telling investors that it still plans to release Bayonetta 3 this year. It still has Advanced Wars 1 + 2: re-boot camp on its launch schedule – albeit with a “TBA” tag related to its release date.
The publisher originally announced Bayonetta 3 in 2017, and we didn’t hear much about the game until the end of last year. During Nintendo Direct in September, Nintendo promised to release a character-action sequel from Platinum in 2022. And the company still lists it as coming up this year in content it sent out as part of its latest earnings report.
In Nintendo, Advance Wars was originally on a different path. The company announced the game last year and plans to launch it in December. After the delay, however, the game’s release date is linked to the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This forced Nintendo to postpone the launch due to the theme of the game invasion and occupation of foreign lands.
By placing Advance Wars in its earnings report, the Nintendo series is signaling life. This means that he will probably not put the game on the proverbial shelf indefinitely. Or, at least, he hasn’t done it yet if he’s factoring the game in his predictions.
The rest of Nintendo’s first-party release looks like this:
- Mario Strikers: Battle League – June 10
- Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hops – June 24
- Live A Live – 22 July
- Xenoblade Chronicles 3 – July 29
- Splatoon 3 – September 9
- Pokemon Scarlett / Violet – “Late 2022”
- Beyonc 3 3 – “2022”
- Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 – “Spring 2023”
- Metroid Prime 4 – “TBA”
- Advanced Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp – “TBA”
Nintendo will add some games to this list if it has Nintendo Direct in the summer. It may include the Metroid Prime 1 remaster as it will be the game’s 20th anniversary in November.
