Around the Network

This is pretty sad. They almost confirmed no Nintendo Direct's in future.

Shovel Knight is already released?

Happy Star Fox actually has a release date! Perhaps it did before this, but it's the first I've seen. I'm okay with November.

I'm glad we got an official announcement on the Yoshi's Woolly World bundle. The Chibi-Robo bundle sounds great, too... $20 for a game and an amiibo is a great deal!

Any chance we'll get the Super Mario Maker amiibo non-console bundle? :)

Around the Network

Devil's Third is releasing during December? Why delay it by four months?

My true form. You like it?

What Boberkun said. I'm surprised they only released a PR statement. No Direct, no Mini-Direct, not even trailers! And sad about Fatal Frame V...

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

I was wondering about that too. Maybe it means a physical release on both consoles.

So no Nintendo Directs anymore?
That would be sad. Directs were such a good way to talk to fans, generate hype, and generally make Nintendo feel less like a coorperate faceless company. I always looked forward to them, they were little events. I think dropping them is a very bad idea.
