Nintendo has announced the next Nintendo Direct show that will focus on Super Mario Bros. Wonder, giving fans an in-depth look into the upcoming 2D side-scrolling adventure video game.
Nintendo continues to go from strength to strength with each passing year. The Japanese video game company's most recent console, the Nintendo Switch, has become a popular choice for gamers, even though it is significantly underpowered in comparison to Sony and Microsoft's consoles. However, this hasn't stopped its sales, as it recently surpassed the sales of Nintendo's previous best-selling console in the US, the Wii. The launch of Nintendo's latest exclusive, Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has given a major boost to the console's popularity.
Now, Nintendo has announced the next Nintendo Direct show that will focus on Super Mario Bros. Wonder, giving fans an in-depth look into the upcoming 2D side-scrolling adventure video game.
