Update: It’s over! Catch up on all the news or check out the 5 biggest announcements.

Nintendo’s latest Nintendo Direct presentation airs today, promising new details on Nintendo Switch and 3DS games coming this year. Today’s broadcast kicks off at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 8, and you can watch it right here, via Nintendo’s YouTube channel.

Today’s Nintendo Direct will be roughly 30 minutes in length. The only game that Nintendo specifically confirmed for the broadcast was Mario Tennis Aces, a Nintendo Switch sports game in development at Camelot Software, maker of the Mario Golf and Mario Tennis series.

There are plenty of 2018 Nintendo Switch games to talk about though, including a new Yoshi, a new Fire Emblem game and the Nintendo Labo collection. Nintendo also has a couple titles originally released on Wii U — Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors — coming to Switch. Maybe we’ll get news on even more Wii U to Switch ports.

On the 3DS side, Nintendo has Detective Pikachu coming soon. Very soon.

For a look at more speculation, check out our story on what else we think Nintendo might talk about.
