Mop it up:
I haven't yet thought about what could possibly release this year, so I'll have to do some research to figure out some probabilities. Last time, six of my guesses were right in some way, which is definitely the best I've done for something like this! I've a feeling I'll be back to tanking for this one though...

Predictions? Ok

1 To build off the hype of the successful release of the Mario Movie, Nintendo will announce a new Mario game to be released by the end of the year.

2 During the Direct in February, Goldeneye will be shadow dropped on Switch and Xbox.

3 At E3 the first DLC will be shown for Splatoon 3. It will be part of the online expansion pack

4 Metroid Prime 4 will not be released in 2023

5 Nintendo will announce the Wii Shopping Channel is completely shutting down. It will be no longer possible to redownload purchased software.

6 There will be no Switch Pro or Switch successor released in 2023

Thats all I can think of for now

Here are my predictions for 2023:

* Hardware -No new switch hardware is released in 2023, other than special editions
* Movie - The Super Mario Bros. Movie is well received by critics, with a MetaCritic average >75, the user score is less than the critics score.
* Announced Game - Pikmin 4 is released in summer 2023 and has some cool use of joy-cons
* Announced Game - Metroid Prime 4 - we get a trailer and release window of 2024
* New Game - A new game from GoodFeel that is not a Yoshi game
* New Game - A new Mario game that combines 2D and 3D mario
* New Game - A new party game from ND cube
* New Game - A Switch port of Kid Icarus Uprising from 3DS
* New Game - A new Donkey Kong game (focus is on mine cart levels)
* NSO - Adds DLC for a game and a new (portable) platform e.g. GameBoy
