Forums - Nintendo Discussion - September Partner Showcase Direct announced

I'm sure it was a complete coincidence that Nintendo announces a new Monster Hunter the day after the PS5 showcase because everyone knows they don't compete with each other.

Exactly, pure coincidence.

Just like when Sony gave the PS4 a temporary price cut of €100 for one day on March 3rd 2017. Complete coincidence.



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

Japanese third parties really pulling through with the Switch, Nintendo better has tons of stock ready for when the MH games come out (especially the mainline one). Weird that Square's been so silent about Bravely Defult II tho, wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't come out this year, but who knows lol.

Soon is TGS, maybe we get more info about Bravely then.

They've been having some kind of presentation like weekly or every 2 weeks now for a while, not their fault if Sony happens to also have an event.

There will be, at least as part of a collector's edition. But that price tag...

Sounds like today Microsoft lost me as a customer.

This is like the 4th time they lost you this year. Are you a masochist or something that you keep going back? 



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I guess they thought Japanese sales weren’t high enough yet. Also, WiiU has no games left to port, so they’re moving on to XBox One.

Wells thats not gona take very long. Better have another console in line.

Combine this third party direct with the Mario 35th direct and throw in Age of Calamity and we pretty much got E3 in September, just spread out over 2 weeks.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

This was an incredibly solid Nintendo Partner Direct. Monster Hunter looks cool and I still really need to buy Ori. Some other pretty big third party announcements that I have no interest in. Hopefully Nintendo is able to keep this high quality of content in the next couple partner directs (seems these will now be monthly).

The one big missing game is Doom Eternal. Been ages since its delay on Switch,.

Yeah that's my one concern atm; id software keep insisting it's "really close" and that they'll make an announcement "soon/shortly" but it feels like it's been pushed back to the end of time.

Yeah I was just thinking how this month has been huge for Switch announcements. Nintendo putting out strong vibes this month to compete against the Xbox and PS5 unveilings.

Pretty smart by Nintendo. Get everyone talking about the Mario 35th anniversary, then drop awesome new Hyrule Warriors out of nowhere to up the excitement. Then right after PS5 announces everything throw out an awesome direct with the Monster Hunter bomb to get people talking about Nintendo again, giving Sony only one day to have the attention focused solely on them in the industry.
