As I said earlier, not the worst Direct. But it's far from the top.
Most of the third-party put me to sleep. It's not merely the fact that I'm gonna play multiplats on PS5 over Switch, but also almost nothing interested me.
Princess Peach: Showtime! looks great. It's out March 22, just before the end of the fiscal year.
Wave 6 of Mario Kart looks great, especially the characters.
F-Zero 99 seems like a slap in the face. Yes, it is a new release in the long-dead series. But it's locked behind Switch Online and a Battle Royale version of the original F-Zero. People tend to care about X and GX. Very few without nostalgia goggles probably give a darn about the OG game or the GBA titles. Maybe there is a slow burn revival for F-Zero.

At least they're getting Luigi's Mansion titled correctly. Calling it Dark Moon in North America was dumb. 2 is a better title. I have a feeling it was pretty early in development when announced in June, since it's not coming out until Summer 2024.
Another Code looks cool.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is the one to wait for in 2024. Here's hoping the first and third games get remade as well.
