Just below Kirby, the release schedule shows that Bayonetta 3 is also set to launch next year, although a more specific timeframe isn’t given. Also coming next year are Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. While the three games are shown on the release site, specific release dates are not mentioned.
