I'm just praying the new Link is a new link and not just a new skin.

Link needs an update in smash.

We can only hope. And maybe I'll buy if it is more like Melee.

Nintendo is dominating Twitter right now! So much Smash Bros memes



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

I suppose this means the efforts of Activision and Ubisoft have failed. They should have used bigger games than Call of Duty and The Division to overshadow Nintendo in the news cycle and on social media.



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

Mario Tennis Aces looks like it will blow the previous games in the series out of the water. Predicting 85 Metascore.

Dark Souls Amiibo is a must have. Pre-ordering now.

Smash Bros will sell a billion units, whether it's Smash 5, or a port of Smash 4.



Nintendo didn't talk about Ys VIII, Fire Emblem, Valkyria Chronicles 4, or Pillars of Eternity II. This means they are still holding onto cards for E3. It seems that this Direct was only meant to cover games coming until July, and then tease Smash Bros. So we might get even more games at E3!

NEW RULE: If it can run on Switch it will be ported to Switch. This means Persona 5, DBFZ, Tales of Berseria, and other games should eventually arrive. 3rd party developers are scrambling to get their games on Switch as fast as possible. Nintendo seems hellbent on making the Wii U 100% obsolete, by bringing over every last good Wii U game.

The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

Everyone's going nuts for Smash and the Splatoon xpac, and I'm just impatiently waiting for Octopath Traveller.

Also, I never would have expected a 2019 release date for a first party 3DS title, even if it is a remake.

Mario Tennis Aces doesn't look very exciting.

Meh.

Reported for lying !

 

Anyway, all of you merit to get slap for not talking about our lord and savior Kirby and his friends joining him in  Star Allies next week !!@?*#!

Stoked to see Mario Tennis finally seems to be making a return to form, the 64 game was a ton of fun but the series has been a huge meh ever since. Hopefully the Luigi's Mansion remake is foreshadowing LM3 for Switch, maybe revealed this E3. Octo Expansion looks incredible, like the Super Mario Galaxy of Splatoon. Yay for N Sane Trilogy on Switch, that would have been a massive missed opportunity. Smash seems to be a new game and releasing this year, which is genuinely shocking. I think this confirms no Pokemon this year though. I don't think it would be a good idea to play their two biggest aces at the same time. Both should get their own Holiday season spotlight. However, if Animal Crossing launches this holiday as well, which I'd say is still likely, the holiday sales for Switch will be insane.

Oh, one more thing.

The announcement of Super Smash Bros. means that one IP of the essential four is present. The four IPs are SSB, 3D Zelda, 3D Mario and Metroid. If any of them is confirmed to be in the works, then all is well in Nintendo Land, regardless of what else is on the release schedule. If none of them is present, then all hell breaks loose, regardless of what else is on the release schedule.

The Metroid Prime 4 logo could only carry peace for so long. This Direct needed something substantial in regards to the essential four. The Smash teaser trailer fits that bill, even though it's only a teaser trailer.

So easy to appease the masses.
