"Super Mario Odyssey" which Nintendo released this year pays tribute to both"Donkey Kong and"Super Mario Bros. Nintendo

There was a leak for a potential Nintendo Direct through EA's internal presentation which pointed towards a January Direct. For most companies that would be a hard ask, but this is Nintendo, which is a company overflowing with IP that sells millions of copies every time a new game launches.

Nintendo has officially gotten its groove back.

Amazon has recently added more than dozen unannounced games for the Nintendo Switch, hinting at a potential Nintendo Direct. Nintendo has usually held a Direct at the start of the year to announce their games lineup for the rest of the year.

Several role-playing games from Square Enix have already been announced for release in 2018, including "Dragon Quest XI" and "Dragon Quest Builders". The firm not only launched its Nintendo Switch gaming console this year but also a few titles. There are other teases as well including Wonderful 101 and Bravely Default for the Nintendo Switch. Within the last quarter of the year, the anniversary game titled "Mega Man 11" is expected to launch. Amazon has released its list of the best-selling games from 2017, and Nintendo managed to take seven of the top 10 spots.

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima spoke to Kyoto Shimbun in an interview where he discussed the console and how it continues to surpass expectations in terms of the Switch's sales targets. The second video game in the list also belongs to Nintendo - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

At the moment, however, Plutoo, Derrek and Naehrwert have not gone into details about when, in what way and with what content, the Homebrew Launcher will be made available, however, they stressed that the goal is not to encourage "piracy", but to be able to exploit on the Switch some emulators and unofficial applications.
