6 out of 10.

My highlights were Pyra/Mythra as a new DLC fighter for Smash Bros., something I've been asking for since I played Xenoblade 2 so I was VERY happy to see that. And Skyward Sword HD - Skyward Sword is still my favorite Zelda game of all time, and it USED to be my favorite game, period, until I played Persona 5. And the fact that it's now getting the HD remaster treatment makes me very ecstatic.
I also enjoyed the Mario Golf and Splatoon 3 announcements.

Everything else... Meh.
And honestly, for the first Nintendo Direct in nearly a year and a half, I was expecting a little more. I love Skyward Sword to death, but when I saw Aonuma pop up on the screen, I was hoping, praying, and crossing my fingers for Breath of the Wild 2. I was expecting that one BIG game to wow me, and while I'm fully aware that Splatoon 3 is that game for a lot of people, and I am happy to see it... It wasn't quite what I was looking for.
There was plenty of other stuff there that looks great like Monster Hunter and Triangle Strategy, but not really my cup of tea.

Overall, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. So yeah, 6/10.
