While it is currently unknown which games Nintendo might have to announce during this Nintendo Direct, there are a number of games that are expected to make an appearance. Since it involves all games from now until the summer season, we will undoubtedly see the following:
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
- Star Fox Zero
- Pokken Tournament
- Hyrule Warriors: Legends
While it is unlikely, we could also possibly see an appearance of: Genei Ibun Roku #FE, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, and The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Other third party or smaller Nintendo franchises are expected to make an appearance as well. Some rumors also point to the announcement of a new Paper Mario game for the Wii U, as well as possible news for more Legend of Zelda anniversary deals.
