A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Nintendo announced today that it will hold a new Nintendo Direct on March 8 at 2 p.m. Pacific.

The stream will focus on Mario Tennis Aces, the Switch sports game that is coming out later this year. Nintendo will also show off other 2018 games for Switch and 3DS. That could include Kirby Star Allies and an upcoming Yoshi game for the Switch.

Nintendo often uses these Directs to announce new titles, so we could have some surprises.


GamesBeat's creed when covering the game industry is "where passion meets business." What does this mean? We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. How will you do that? Membership includes access to:
  • Newsletters, such as DeanBeat
  • The wonderful, educational, and fun speakers at our events
  • Networking opportunities
  • Special members-only interviews, chats, and "open office" events with GamesBeat staff
  • Chatting with community members, GamesBeat staff, and other guests in our Discord
  • And maybe even a fun prize or two
  • Introductions to like-minded parties
