Nintendo Direct Rumours Swirl After Amazon Lists Nintendo Switch Game Placeholders

After a stellar first ten months for the plucky portable home console, we still know little about what Nintendo Switch games we can anticipate to see release in 2018.

That looks set to change soon with the expectation that a Nintendo Direct will be broadcasted around the world in January, in which Nintendo will set out what everyone has to look forward to in the coming months – a strategy that has already seen success in letting them plan out a steady pace of first-party releases to maintain consumer interest in their hybrid console.

The rumours about a Nintendo Direct have only been fuelled by Amazon, after the online retailer has published placeholder listings for no less than 18 Nintendo Switch games that are priced between $59.99 – $99.99. There are no particular hints as to what they are seeing as the listings have such imaginative names as “Switch Title 30” and “Switch Title 22,” but the images that Amazon has used indicate that the games will be announced at a “Nintendo Switch Event” – which we can assume has been carried over from the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017.

We already know that Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi, and Fire Emblem are on the way, but what else would you like to see come to Nintendo Switch in 2018?
