9/10 so much better than I hoped.
I thought that this would be one of the weaker directs, but nice to be wrong. Octolings were the biggest surprise, I really didn´t even dream to have any hope to see them ever. I am also eager to see more about smash, is it just a port or something little bit more or a whole new game. I´m guessing its somewhere in the middle, which is fine to me.

My wallet will already empty before the end of july and we still have no real idea for the rest of the year, so that’s a 10/10 for me.

I would said 8-8.5, very good Direct. :)


Really solid Direct. A few too many ports in some ways and disappointed Captain Toad isn't a sequel. On the other hand, summer is now packed for me on Switch - Dark Souls, Mario Tennis Aces, Octopath Traveler, Ys 8, Crash Bandicoot, Okami HD and the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2 will keep me very busy (and poor).

I think the biggest positive for me was that so much of the Switch content featured in this Direct will be out in the next few months - while I'd prefer a better picture of what's coming in the second half of the year, this at least puts Nintendo in a good position going into E3. They have Bayonetta 3, Prime 4, Smash Switch, Yoshi and Fire Emblem to show off, which is a good start to their line-up considering new announcements for Autumn/Winter and 2019 are practically guaranteed.

Portmaggedon but I'm happy with whats coming. At least we're getting quality ports.
Holding out on Southpark payed off in the end, although I was hoping for a Bayonetta type deal that had the original included. With Okami HD, everthing is now right in the world again. Dark Souls Is Dark Souls, but that Amiibo is hilarious. Also UNDERTALE. :D

Octopath and Mario Tennis Aces continue to look great and Detective Pikachu is SO up my alley it's ridiculous. Also LUIGIS MASION. :D

The Splatoon Octo expansion looks great and that trailer for it was cool af. Also SMASH. :D

Captain Toad makes me a little sad for the WiiU as the last of it's great exclusives are bleeding out and rising again on the Switch. Also Pikmin 4 continues to be MIA.

they did good but didn't show fortnite I'm guessing they are saving it to E3? and expecting Ridge Racer 8 probably E3 too?

for Smash :D

That was fantastic. It blew away my expectations.

There're reasons to be happy as a Switch owner, and reasons to be happy even as a 3DS owner.


lol. You thought sales were gonna slow down? Nah, this train's accelerating. They're gonna double last years sales (<--exaggeration but yeah)

You know that thing when you uhhh...and then you...hmmm. But then you have to...umm, Yuh.

Ports ports ports and more ports.
Only one new game announced.... for the 3ds
Porting rhe latest Smash is ok I guess also means that we wont be seeing a new Smash for the Switch
That was the most dissapoiting Nintendo Direct ever, to me.
