October is going to be a big month for Nintendo, between the launch of Metroid Dead and a shiny new OLED Switch model. The gaming giant rounded out September with a surprise Nintendo Direct event, which showed us some of what’s in store for 2022. That includes Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3 and, surprise, a Mario movie starring Chris Pratt.
The other big news was the expansion of Nintendo’s Online service. The company is bringing a selection of N64 and Sega Genesis titles to the platform and releasing retro controllers so you can play in the exact way you remember. N64 and Genesis games will begin rolling out in late October.
