Nintendo dropped a surprise new Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday morning — a bite-sized Nintendo Direct mini Partner Showcase — that offers new details on upcoming Switch games from Nintendo and its third-party partners. You can watch the latest Nintendo Direct right here.

Today’s Nintendo Direct presentation revealed new details on Bravely Default 2, Square Enix’s role-playing game for Switch; No More Heroes 3; Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town; Part Time UFO, a new game from Kirby developer HAL Laboratory; and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which now has a playable demo on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Nintendo’s holiday lineup includes Pikmin 3 Deluxe (arriving Oct. 30), Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Nov. 20), and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, the first official English-language localization of the original 8-bit Fire Emblem, coming Dec. 4. Nintendo’s new hardware for the season, Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., arrives Nov. 13.
