Around the Network

I'll post the same thing I posted on my Twitter: Good Nintendo Direct overall, considering it was basically announced on the spot like 2 days ago. Good 3rd party showing at least for those who don't already own XB One/PS4.. Crash Bandicoot, South Park (surprising), Okami, more on Octopath & Darksouls..

..Negatives: 3DS stuff looks bland, couldn't really care less about it at this point, and we're still missing those major NEW third party releases. Though they will come in time I think. Would have been nice to see more of MP4, & more on Smash other than tiny teaser. I'd go C+

Out of the games (for Switch) shown, excluding Smash Brothers since virtually nothing was shown except and flashy logo, the games I'd probably pick up:

Yay - Kirby, Dark Souls, Mario Tennis, Octopath, Hyrule Warriors (never played on Wii U).

Meh/maybe - South Park (liked XB One version, may rebuy for portability @ discount), Little Nightmares, Lights (huh?).

NAY - Crash, Captain Toad, Sushi, Okami, Splatoon DLC

A few things I hope to see (not saying we’ll see even one, though). Note these are not in any real order, only that I put the degree of my wish + likelihood of happening stuff closer to the top. Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem I think are likely, I won’t put them on the list though, I’ll be disappointed if neither happens, as I expect one or both to have information shed on it.

1. Monolithsoft’s next game
2. Virtual Console details, as a separate platform that is not tied to hardware, and won’t reset each generation.
3. Dragon Quest 10 or 11 details
4. If Xenoblade Chronicles X is getting a Switch port
5. What Bandai Namco’s three games are, anything to do with Xenosaga?
6. Does Sakaguchi have any plans to work on a Switch title?
7. Final Fantasy 7 remake? (only lower because I think this is unlikely, number 1 if there’s a chance!)
8. Any other Bethesda games heading to Switch
9. EPD’s next big title.Will they be taking the DKC franchise home and making a worthy sequel to the original trilogy? As in full 3D with cutting edge design.
10. Pokemon Switch details (only here because I expect details in the summer, not now).

 

If any one of these things happen I will be thrilled! This is regardless of whether or not AC or FE are shown, we know those are coming already.

Not ONE thing from my list!

Although Undertale was very cool. Third party stuff really shone in this Direct.

Maybe in the next Direct Nintendo will put out some bigger guns. I don’t need the 18th Smash Brothers game in the last 4 years.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

What? There were only 4 in like... 19 years I think.

That smash revealed save the direct for me. It’s an okay direct for me. COD IIII reveal would have been big though but alas it didn’t happened.
Crash coming to switch is cool and all but the whole direct is port and ports. Hopefully the next directs will feature new games even if will be multi-plat.
Also, Nintendo what are you doing?! Luigi’s Mansion should have been a Switch title aswell! SMH.

Highlights:
Smash
Crash
Little nightmare which I think is perfect for handheld.
Luigi’s mansion remake!
And the amiibo dark soul.

So, I'll play the part of the 3DS defender here. Luigi's Mansion being a remake for 3DS makes sense because the assets are already there, and because the game was intended to have the capability to be played with stereoscopic 3D visuals (which the 3DS happens to have, go figure.)

That said, I am pretty disappointed that they didn't announce any new 3DS localisations.

I didn't watch the whole thing but I watched the Octopath Traveler trailer and oh my, that game looks SO amazing and the combat looks super fun and interesting. I love job systems.

ok, i'll trow this guess out.

-south park for switch
-SSB port

-mario tennis aces (well they said it)
-Wolfenstein II release date
-something about Labo
-something Pokemon related on 3DS

diablo 3 on switch announced

i will shroud myself in victory. I so called South park ! which i'm very happy about, since i dont own a xbox one or a ps4. i was really waiting for this one. i just hope that the first one will be availaible too.

Smash is great. now to see if it's a new game or a port.

I'll help you by mentionning about the remake of one of the best RPG's of the 7th Gen. Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story, seriously who cannot be hyped by this while owning a 3DS !

+ There's still SMT Strange Journey Redux coming in Spring ;)

Yeah I groaned when I saw that. Makes me worry about the prospects of Luigi's Mansion 3, especially if NextLevelGames is making the remake. Like obviously it's inevitable, but later rather than sooner.

Yeah, it should be a nice cross platform game so Luigi's mansion 3 will have a fanbase on Switch.

Yeah, I understand that and it will not affect me really because I have a 3DS but still making it cross plat will help the fanbase on the Switch.

I certainly hope that only a part of Next Level Games is working on the remake - and especially hope that its sales figures won't affect the development of the next Luigi's Mansion on Switch.

Let's just say that while, as a 3DS owner, I'm happy for the new game announcements - I'm also not blind to the fact that practically every 3DS game past Pokémon Sun/Moon was most likely a sales disappointment to Nintendo.
