Well, the June 2024 Nintendo Direct has been broadcast. Nintendo warned us that there was definitely a Summer Direct coming (as is typical), and the 40-minute presentation was packed with Switch announcements for games coming in the second half of 2024, plus a select few for 2025. Metroid Prime 4 news, finally!

No mention of 'Switch 2' (again, something Nintendo flagged beforehand), but there's still plenty on the horizon for Switch as the console cruises through its eighth year.
