After much speculation this finally happened at a really short notice

 

Short and very sweet, imo. A solid lineup so far, though a lot is just updates and new DLC for launched games

Nintendo is basically porting ever single Wii U game, since that console never happened

TWEWY and Dark Souls are complete surprises for me

9/10

6/10.

It was kinda cool, some kinda cool announcements too, but nothing mindblowing. Sort of like how a Mini Direct should be, really, but ultimately it is disappointing to still have barely any idea what the lineup for this year will look like, and still have no footage of the Fire Emblem game which was announced quite a long time ago.



7/10

Average. Not Amazing. Especially for a 14 minute Mini Direct.

If it wasn't for the leaks of a Dark Souls Remastered being rumored and leaked prior. It would have caught everyone off-guard imo.

TWEWY with enhancements and a new extra story is also a complete surprise if not for rumors of the game making another appearance on the Switch.

Nintendo is porting some of their best games from the WiiU with some enhancements.

I'm hoping Retro wasn't working on just the upgrade of Tropical Freeze for all these years, and am interested in trying out SNK: Heroines when it releases.

Was hoping for a bit more, but I think Nintendo is saving some things for their E3 Direct, especially with how they will likely detail their Paid Online Services and probably games to go along with that in Fall/Winter 2018.



For a Mini Direct it deserves a 7/8 in my opinion.
For the amount of hype people built up for it and people thinking it would be a full blown direct I understand someone for rating it 6/5.

The biggest question still remains. Where the heck was "a way out"?

I want to buy most of what was shown.



7 - very solid Direct with a number of games I want (a minimum of 5, possibly 7 depending on reviews). I'd have preferred specific release dates for Mario Tennis and Hyrule Warriors, rather than the vague "Spring" window. I'm also hoping future Directs this year will have a heavier emphasis on new titles over ports.



Hard to do. Based on surprise? Probably a 10. Dark souls, World ends, Ys etc.
Based on games I want? 1. Mostly just ports and DLC.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

For a "mini" I thought it was packed with news and diverse assortment of games. 8/10

I don't think this port was Retro's work at all, and if it was it's obviously just a side project then. That said, as much as I love Tropical Freeze and am happy with this announcement, I can't help but be disappointed that it's only it - they should have brought Returns too.
