They call this a "mini" Direct? lol Anyways, a lot of pretty cool things here.

  • Would've never expected a new version of The World Ends With You, so I might actually get that because I've been meaning to play that game for years.
  • Nice to see them releasing new content for Pokkén, though I hope that there will be more. I need to actually play Pokkén, though, but I'm just happy that they're continuing to support it.
  • Kirby Star Allies looks really cute and fun, so I'll probably get it at some point.
  • Hyrule Warriors DE is exactly what I've wanted for so long due to all of the DLC and exclusive 3DS content. I'm so happy to see it all in one package, and I look forward to the possibility of future content. (Groose, Sidon, and Vaati plz)
  • Nintendo's making me feel like I shouldn't have bought the Wii U, but it's cool to see DK Tropical Freeze on the Switch because it's really good and deserves more love than it got, and I think the Switch will certainly give it more than the Wii U ever could.
  • Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought of Dark Souls in any way, shape, or form coming to a Nintendo console, let alone one that can be taken on the go. But ****ing hell here it is. What a day to be alive. (Then again, Doom's on it too)

  • Overall, while there wasn't really anything new, this was still a pretty darn good Direct, imo. More third party support, which is always good, and also some more Wii U games get a chance to get more love on a better console.

    You know the scary (fun) part? If TWEWY, Dark Souls and so many ports and updates is what they call a mini direct, I can't want to see what the real deal will show.

    Low patience mode, probably.
    Unless he needs to do a specific motion to stand/slide on spikes. Shovel Knight Specter of Torment taught me that can cause as much frustration as it can prevent.

    People said the same about Skyrim, but the handheld feature made it pretty good for those who didn't pick it up at first.


    seems pretty disappointing when other consoles and windows get 60FPS

    If people bought it, the frames didn't stop them. Not saying that's ok with DS, but if it's stable, someone could double dip to try and get through an area during a bus ride or something.

    Yeah, 30FPS isn’t that big of a game changer if it’s stable. I’m personally going to spring for the Switch version because Dark Souls on car trips sounds awesome

    I don’t think you all understand how revolutionary Dark Souls is on the Switch. It’s the only console Dark Souls is on that has wrist straps! So now no more controller being flung across the room!
    Unless you put them in wrong.

    Man, I'm just sooo happy they brought back ability mixing in Kirby. I really hope it becomes a staple of the series after this.

    Also I'm definitely going to have to buy that new Mario + Rabbids DLC. Isn't it funny how we can play as Donkey Kong in a Skylanders game and then switch over to play as Donkey Kong in a Rabbids game? Heh.

    Mario Tennis looks pretty cool, I want to see more of that single player mode. I'm on the fence with the port of Hyrule Warriors, but I'll most likely end up getting the port of Tropical Freeze simply for the novelty of playing as Funky Kong in a platformer.

    He's obviously the equivalent of the "New Mode" in the 3DS port of Donkey Kong Country Returns. Or mellow mode in Yoshi's Wooly World, or the White Tanooki suit in Super Mario 3D world, or Nabbit in New Super Luigi U. Basically he's an easy mode in the form of an alternate character.

    Looks like the internet is once again setting unrealistically high expectations for this Direct. Guys, their blurb has "more info on Mario Tennis Aces," as the main grab. This is a low-key Direct at best. They're saving the big stuff for later. >.>

    Yeah, that's what I think, Smash would be cool, but they would definantly save that for E3, just sharing my thoughts.

    What I'm hoping for(More realistic expectations)

    -More Info on Mario Tennis Aces
    -More info on Yoshi game from E3
    -More info on DK DLC from M+R KB
    -Possible new Pikmin announcement
    -Possible more Odyssey updates
    -More on Bayonetta 3
    -(Okay, getting a little more out there)
    -Metroid Prime 4 info?
    -New Wario game?
    -New Kid Icarus game?

    (And the farthest it can go)
    -NEW STARFY GAME PLEEEAASEEE IT'S BEEN TOOO LOONGG!!

    All 3 of those are better suited for an E3 reveal, especially KI2 and Fire Emblem since they'd be full on new games, while Smash has a chance of being a port 9Until Smash 5 a coupla years from now) and Pokemon is typically announced with it's own thing, unless it's a spin off like Pokken, or news of a already announced game.

    if we're being honest, i feel like its probably gonna be something like this:

    -CG trailer for the new fire emblem with a title reveal, no gameplay, more at e3 probably
    -same treatment for the yoshi game
    -SOMETHING for no more heroes and octopath traveler
    -pokken blastoise gameplay
    -paid odyssey DLC, better look at the donkey kong DLC for battle kingdom
    -a good chunk of time for mario tennis aces
    -at least 1 wii u port
    -time for one more surprise (and then reggie would spin the wheel of bull**** between, mother 3, pokemon, smash, metroid prime 4, and something random but equally cool)

    as for 3ds, i have no idea
    id like to see an echoes style remake of genealogy of the holy war + thracia 776 or binding blade but i doubt we'd get that
    and if we get smash or metroid ill eat a shoe

    Well, the Octopath release date was possibly leaked (17 August) so if it turns out to be true we might get more info on the game. I just wanna know about the other 6 characters. But yeah, any demo I can spend 10+ hours on and not get bored is immediately worth my time.

    Won’t be here to watch it live though, so I’ll catch up later.
