Konami Could Be Bringing Castlevania, Contra WiiWare Games To Nintendo Switch

Amazon has recently added more than dozen unannounced games for the Nintendo Switch, hinting at a potential Nintendo Direct. Nintendo has usually held a Direct at the start of the year to announce their games lineup for the rest of the year. After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year.

Nintendo's line-up of planned first-party releases for the Nintendo Switch in 2018 remains mysterious for the time being.

While those listings have since been taken down, Cheap Ass Gamer managed to capture a screenshot of them before they disappeared.

Over on ResetEra, a user known by John Harker revealed that the Direct is scheduled for January 11th but backpedalled slightly by saying the timing could've been changed.

Fire in 12-storey Manchester building 'well under control'
The surrounding area was sealed off as over a dozen fire engines rushed to the scene, while onlookers gathered on street corners. Spokesman of the fire service said the fire had spread to "multiple floors" but the situation was "brought under control".

While it's very unlikely that we'll see any new Castlevania or Contra adventures from Konami, there's always a good chance of seeing classics find a second chance at life - like on the Nintendo Switch. That would mean that a Nintendo Direct would have to be just around the corner, but none have been confirmed as of yet.

So, those who own the latest firmware version will then have to wait for a possible flaw in the most recent system update, since it is not possible to downgrade the Nintendo Switch.

An early January Nintendo Direct does make some degree of sense, as Nintendo did the same thing at the beginning of 2017.

If Nintendo Direct is indeed happening this month, we might know about it soon through the official Nintendo Twitter account. On the other hand, Nintendo held a Direct past year at this time so it is entirely possible that this rumour has some credibility.
