[Original story] There will be major Nintendo Switch announcements in the coming weeks, including two new retail first-party titles and reintroductions from already announced games.
At least, that’s what known leaker group ‘LeakyPandy’ writes on Twitter. While there will be “significant” announcements in the next four weeks, the group says that there won’t be any announcements related to the rumored new Nintendo Switch models.
According to ‘LeakyPandy’, Nintendo reduced the number of new first-party offerings, but 2 new first-party offerings will still be announced during the next weeks. In addition to these new first-party games, Nintendo is said to be reintroducing already-announced side games from major franchises as well.
