As you guys may know, Nintendo had 2 direct within the month of February and announced some huge titles. Some of those titles include Mario Maker 2, Astrial Chain, LOZ: Link's Awakening, Pokemon Shield/Sword, and to lesser extent Tetris 99. Which of these titles are you guys most excited and why? Its hard to believe how amazing this month has been for new game announcements. Practically have had an E3 worth of announcements!

Lets also not forget the Third parties too, a ton of new Indie games were announced. Assassin Creed 3 Remastered, Hell Blade, Unravel 2, Rune Factory 4/5, Dead by Daylight, and so many more.

I hope most of you aren't expecting a big E3, Nintendo has blown through most of those announcements so far.

Probably Links Awakening as of right now. Need some more information on Astral Chain.


Link's Awakening for sure and i am really intrigued by Astral Chain. I will also pick up Mario Maker,  but i am not overly excited about it.

I'm going with Mario Maker 2. I've never played Link's Awakening, so that's definitely a close second. Astral Chain looks cool, but I'm not sure that'll be a day one grab for me. And I've never been into Pokemon, and that reveal of Sword/Shield didn't seem like it would entice me into the series.

More excited for Pokémon, but Astral Chain isn’t far off.

Mario Maker 2 and Pokemon

I have thousands of hours on Dead By Daylight, own it on Scorpio, Pro, and PC. So I imagine I’ll buy that, though I can’t imagine how well it will run on Switch since it runs like doodoo on the other consoles.

Outside of that, probably MM2.

Voted for Mario Maker 2 (since it's the safest bet) but it's very close. Very excited for Link's Awakening and Pokémon SS as well, more than for any game last year. All three have the potential to end up in my top 10 favourite games of all time.

Oh, and Tetris 99 is a fun little game as well.

This is my list of games that I plan to buy, whether it be day one or some time after their respective launch dates:
-Rune Factory 4 (and 5 once that comes out in 2020 or something...)
- Astral Chain
- Pokemon Sword/Shield
- Mario Maker 2
- Link's Awakening Remake
- Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- Dragon Quest XI S
- Daemon x Machina
- Yoshi's Crafted World
- Final Fantasy VII (just got IX on Switch)
- Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 (if it's getting favorable reviews at least)
- Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Already playing Tetris 99

R.I.P my wallet...Sorry if I do not have a definitive answer as there are a lot of games I am looking forward to playing.

And I agree with the OP in a sense...For what was a huge direct, it might affect how E3 may be potentially handled. We have seen it before, even 2015 was sort of handled as such as the April Fool's Direct (seriously, if people did not remember, the Direct was on April 1, 2015, which was, unfortunately, Iwata's last notable appearance besides his puppet cameo at E3 and his apology after the presentation) provided a lot of information in which some of the games were repeats, in a way, at E3 2015.

E3 will be very interesting with all that is considered. Animal Crossing, Bayonetta 3, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Pokemon Sword/Shield are likely/possibly appearing at the event. I wonder what Nintendo will do this year for E3. Then you add the Microsoft and Xbox Live rumors....
