Honestly, this was the only interesting/good thing about the direct for me.
I really enjoyed Splatoon 2's campaign, so more of that might be the thing that makes me take my Switch out of the cupboard where it's been sitting since Xenoblade 2.
On the subject of XC2, I know you were worried New Game + would necessitate fighting the final boss again to unlock it, but it's actually an option you can select on the main screen if you have a completed save file.
And I also thought the Splatoon 2 campaign was really good so yeah, more is great. And given all the maps, weapons, and outfits they've given away for free, I'll happily pay for this.
Very pleased to hear that. :) I'll probably revisit it in a couple of years, I like to do that, give myself some time to semi-forget a game I liked, then rediscover it. I reckon I'll enjoy my second playthrough more than my first, I often do.
The Direct did say the expansion has 80 test facilities, so assuming each one is a little bite-sized level, that sounds like pretty good value for $20. 4 levels to the dollar! ;)
