Couldn't be less interested so I'll be skipping this. As others have said I'm happy if this means more time at E3 for other stuff though

I can't wait to get told how to move a brick from here to there.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nice.I am really looking foward for this game

This also probably means that the E3 presentation is going to be juicier than most people think.

Hopefully at least 5 of those minutes are confirming Chitoge as a returning character.

Interested but this Direct is certainly a good occasion for them to sell me on this game since I'm actually waiting for the TRUE successor to the "New" series.

Ain't at work too so that's a + !

Why are people confused that they're only talking about one game? E3 is around the corner lol.

Wouldn't exactly say I'm hyped for this game, but I'm def getting it day one, so I'll tune in.

Oh, no big direct until E3

I think there's never been big Direct between March/April and E3.

Well, they actually did several times in the past, but it has gotten rare recently. But I think that's also due to making less Directs in general now. For instance, there were 30 Directs in 2013 between the different regions, but only 17 in 2018 - and that's bloated through 5 Fire Emblem Heroes Directs.

However, in April/May, Nintendo generally showcases 1-2 games which are normally to be released in June or July, so it's normal that SMM2 gets that treatment, too. Just look at those directs in the last years:

2018: None, MTA direct was in early March already

2017: 2 Directs for ARMS and Splatoon 2

2016: Culdcept Revolt (Japan only)

2015: 2 Directs for Xenoblade Chronicles X and Splatoon. Also, a general Direct on April 1st.

2014: 3 in April, with SSB, Tomodachi Life and Mario Kart 8 in quick succession

2013: Monster Hunter 4 and Phoenix Wright (Japan only), also a general Direct on May 17, 3 weeks before E3

Kind of happy about this to be honest. That means it won't be the big spotlight title (or at least get nearly as much attention) at E3 this year. Especially since it's release is 2 1/2 weeks after E3.

2016 - Breath of the Wild
2017 - Super Mario Odyssey
2018 - Smash Bros. Ultimate
With this, I'm gonna guess that their big title they're focusing on for 2019 will be Animal Crossing.

Super Mario Odyssey was not even close to being comparable to BOTW or Ultimate. It literally just had a short but sweat trailer at the end of the direct.

I believe it's a reference to how they decked out their E3 booth for each year, not so much which game was focused on in the actual presentation.

Can't understand why people are not hyped for this game. It will be the first major game which will use the touchscreen of the Switch intensely. It was one of the biggest Wii U games with a large fanbase and even an official website for sharing levels (Mario Maker Bookmark). With the knowledge of part 1 we will have a well balanced online mode right from the beginning. It will be the first game on Switch which could use Facebook or Twitter as a replacement for Miiverse. Probably we can use Amiibos reasonable.

I made more than 40 levels on Wii U and had so much fun on creating levels. This is one of the games why I bough a Switch console. Already pre-ordered a copy with a stylus.

I think we will have another (Indie) Direct before E3 to cover titles which could come too short during E3. A Mario Maker Direct was necessary since we only know 90 seconds of this game from the February Direct and this is one of the biggest Nintendo games this year (beside Pokemon and Animal Crossing). On E3 they will focus on Pokemon Shield/Sword obviously.

It starts in over 7 hours in my time zone! :D

Some days I just blow up.
