Nintendo Direct, This Thursday

On September 1st, at 10 AM EST, there will be a 3DS focused Nintendo Direct. This doesn't surprise me much, since the Wii U is basically dead. And I'm sure they have a couple 3DS announcements, plus maybe the Sun and Moon starter evolutions?!

We won't be getting any NX news, but I'm sure they'll have a separate event for that in Semptember, or October at the latest.

The WiiU isn't quite dead yet, but the problem is that I don't think we're getting anything noteworthy until next year that isn't multiplataform.

Though all I recall at the moment is Yooka-Laylee and Breath of the Wild which wouldn't make another whole direct interesting.

Eeeeh, I can't really watch it, and it's about the 3DS, so I'll watch when I get home to see if there's something interesting, mainly regarding Amiibo.

Usually Directs are at the same time across all countries; I'm sure this one is the same.

I know, but I'm on school around that time, so, you know...

And yeah, I know every Direct has big announcements, but, since I'm not that much interested on the 3DS, you know... Tough I expect some good things about Amiibo.

I still think they will announce the announcement date for the NX at the very end of it, like how they announced the last Smash Direct at the end of another Direct.

They'd be stupid not to. People are gonna be watching this so revealing it then would be a good way to spread awareness, and have people mark their calendars for the NX.

I don't expect much from it otherwise, or really know what to expect. I can't think of any new 3DS games they would announce at this point, so I'm assuming it most of the info will be for games they've already announced.

The final Smash amiibo are most likely being saved for a Smash 4 port for NX.

To be fair, 3DS did come out before Nintendo gave the finger to Brazil's taxes. It's easier to find used than a WiiU, that's for sure.

I'm more afraid of how many livers the NX is going to cost for us, if PS4, AFTER Sony made deals with the country, still was priced 4k at launch.

Huh, I can see. I personally don't like to buy used consoles (I'm okay with games tough). Also, I have much more interest on the Wii U.

But I heard Nintendo wanted to find a way to come back to Brazil with the NX. Who knows?

At least we still have Amiibo for U$50,00...

Oh yeah, I remembered ONE game I'm hyped for this year, Shantae Half-Genie Hero. Coming out in a few months too!

Too bad Nintendo treats the game the same as every other indie out there so they wouldn't do a WiiU indies block on this if their lives depended on it.

Edit: i thought Target Release Date was retail

As someone who has a 3DS and a Wii U, this was a bit disappointing. I was really expecting more Pokemon stuff.

I'll give my thoughts below.

The Zelda amiibo look really nice, I just hope they do stuff in game because I already have Smash Bros. Link and Zelda.

The fact that all these Wii U games are being ported to the 3DS is kind of sad, but I understand why they're doing it. I definitely won't get Mario Maker for 3DS, but I'll consider Yoshi's Wooly World. Also, is Splatoon like the only Wii U exclusive game now?

The Animal Crossing update/amiibo stuff has potential, but we'll see.

The Pikmin game looks interesting, but I hope this isn't replacing the rumored Pikmin 4 game that would launch with the NX.

The new Mario Party actually looks pretty fun. Maybe I"ll give it a try, but I want to see more about it first. The Mario Sports game seems like a good idea, but I can't really say too much about it yet.
Drawdler Gold Sparx Gems: 2837
#47 Posted: 20:27:41 01/09/2016
I'll just copy/paste my thoughts from HIHD's guestbook.

As far as amiibo go, I'm just getting Poochy, maybe the 3DS version of YWW, but not any other amiibo.
I'm happy about ACNL getting an update (if nothing else, more people should be playing it again) but worried about the focus on amiibo with it. I don't have any AC amiibo any more, so if all the new content is just for them, I won't really have anything new to do anyway.
And okay, vent time: maybe nostalgia is clouding my opinion, but I really don't like how the Animal Crossing franchise is getting treated now. I hate how they're focusing on amiibo with it more and more and the mobile game has me fairly worried. Not saying this franchise is dead or going to go downhill, but disappointed with it.
Also the Pikmin game was a nice surprise but I was disappointed it's in 2D.
I might get SMT4. I'm at least gonna look into it more.
Everything else left no impact on me besides "U is ded" tbh.

Pretty underwhelmed, but since we're getting a new console next year, I can understand why there wasn't much to show here.

I have both a 3DS and a Wii U as well and I'm actually not really all that disappointed, tbch.

The Zelda amiibo don't act any differently from the Smash Bros. Zelda amiibo in existing games, but they will apparently work differently for Breath of The Wild.

I'm almost 100% certain that Pikmin 3DS is not replacing Pikmin 4, as that wouldn't make much sense at all.

Ok, good, for both of those things. I just hope they'll announce Breath of the Wild amiibo use before the year is over, because that would really be the only motivation for me getting any of the new Zelda ones. Toon Link looks nice, but I don't really need another Zelda.

We have to get an NX direct this month or in October. Same thing with Pokemon. There's still so much we don't know.

also pikmin game for 3ds is great looking
