However, the specifics of what the presentation will cover remain shrouded in mystery, leaving fans eagerly anticipating any potential leaks.

Billbil-kun's Past Rumors
Billbil-Kun has been known to be a relatively credible source in the past when it comes to Nintendo leaks. In August of 2023, they noted the potential for a red, Mario-themed special edition Nintendo Switch to release, coinciding with the Mario Wonder Direct Event. Shortly thereafter, they were proven correct, with the special edition Nintendo Switch retailing later last year.
However, not everything comes to light. They also made note of a potential Mario Kart-themed special edition Nintendo Switch bundle that was supposed to retail in Q4 2023, which never surfaced.
