The aforementioned Luigi's Mansion, Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 were all named by Nintendo last week, so expect new details from those titles.

As for unannounced information, the latest DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is likely as well as a release date - or window - for Animal Crossing.
