Can it really be that time of year again already? Nintendo has revealed that a new Nintendo Direct presentation is on the way tomorrow afternoon. It'll contain some new info about upcoming Nintendo releases, although you might want to temper your expectations if you're looking for Metroid Prime 4 info.

According to the official Nintendo Twitter account, the Direct presentation is scheduled for tomorrow at 2pm Pacific, and it'll last for around 40 minutes. It's set to contain "information mostly focused on Nintendo Switch games launching in the first half of 2023", so we probably won't get any info on projects that are a long way off.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is Nintendo's biggest announced release for the first half of 2023.

So, what could we see during tomorrow's Direct? Well, the first and most obvious candidate for more info is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The game was revealed to be releasing in May during last September's Nintendo Direct, but since then, Nintendo has been relatively quiet about the Breath of the Wild sequel. Could we get our first extended look at gameplay tomorrow? Let's hope so.

Other games likely to be in tomorrow's Direct lineup include Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, as well as Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, which arrives on Switch on February 24th. Octopath Traveler II, the Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse remaster, and Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life are all also scheduled to land on Switch during the first part of 2023, so we might get some info about those.

There's also a chance we could see more information about games we haven't heard of yet, or perhaps get release dates for games that don't have them yet. My guess is Tears of the Kingdom gameplay, a release date for Sabotage's indie RPG Sea of Stars (although that might be wishful thinking), and a few surprise announcements too. Metroid Prime 4 or a followup to the Switch? Out of the question, sadly.

You can watch the presentation via Nintendo's official YouTube channel when it airs tomorrow at 2pm Pacific (that's 5pm Eastern).
