Mark your calendars: information about Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games is coming this week in a new Nintendo Direct presentation, which includes new details on Mario Tennis Aces.
I hope they show one or two games we haven't seen. I am gonna set my expectations low. Could be really good.
Fire Emblem reveal at the very least I'm hoping.
I'm setting my expectations extremely high I want Animal Crossing!
That's the right attitude to take, IMO. Personally, I'm hoping for a solid release date for Hyrule Warriors DE. "Autumn" narrows it down but isn't accurate by any stretch of the term, and I'd like to know how long I have to wait until that beauty is finally in my hands. As for new stuff... A teaser for Smash. Like, a brief animated trailer, no more than 30 seconds long, showcasing all past content joined together followed by shadowed-out new content [maybe even a fighter silhouette/shadow] for us to speculate over for months before the game actually releases.XD
I'm just praying for a Hollow Knight Complete Edition release date... And I'm hoping it comes out in March, too.
please show off Diablo 3 for the Switch :)
That'll be my main highlight if they do!
It came out 6 years ago, why not Diablo 4? Come on Blizzard
Are they even making Diablo 4 right now? I thought they had a lot of other projects they were focusing on...
3DS games as well, nice.
I feel like they might have one last 2D/isometric Zelda coming out for 3DS this year.
I'd take it, A Link Between Worlds was great.
I hope they do Link Between Worlds is up there with one of my favorite Zelda games of all time. I would actually hope whatever they make for 3DS automatically ported to the switch.
Said no one ever...
I just did.
Metroid Prime Trilogy HD for Switch, come on Nintendo you know you want to!
Id want enhanced port if they were going to do that. Stuff like optional navigation assistance would be nice. I spent most of those games running around because there was barely any guidance (Hence the optional i know some fans love the exploration) i do too but running around the same dank dark swamp areas in mp2 drove me nuts
That's a hard sell. Either they release them as is and people will complain they weren't enhanced, or they upgrade them and sabotage the sales of Prime 4 by releasing a similar product beforehand.
I don't think it would sabotage anything, considering the Prime Trilogy is available on the Wii U Eshop.XD If anything, bringing it to Switch would let those that skipped Prime 3 on Wii the chance to actually play it, since they likely didn't get it on Wii U either.
God that would be so damn awesome! Fantastic trilogy. First one is in my top 10 games all time. Would love to play them on Switch
Omg yes!!! With no online crap and all things gettable easy with no friend codes lol... Just a Metroid teaser tonite plez? Lol
Hoping for some cool Switch games Really waiting for E3, so I don't expect much from this
Kirby’s last showing before release next week and maybe some dates for things between now and June (e3 for anything after it). Maybe something special if lucky but 90% next 2-3 months and maybe a reveal of something releasing early Summer—someone said Fire emblem rumored for summer, if so it would need to be shown before e3 (if not FE, whatever releases around e3 needs shown off before then anyways).
i'm sorry but how is kirby still getting games, there is a serious lack of innovation with that franchise.
Don’t know, but it is releasing next week so it’s relevant to some. I’ll rent just because Switch retail isn’t light atm.
That Mario Tennis of all games is one they chose to emphasis in the press release, sets expectations extremely low.
Hope that leak of links awakening being remade on 3ds is true.
this was out of the blue, or did I miss something...
I love these for the neat little surprises that pop up every once in a while, but I also dislike that so many people treat each Direct as if it should be this huge event that HAS GOT TO reveal tons and tons of new things, as if it were a Pre-E3 event before E3 even actually arrives. The expectations become very unrealistic sometimes, for these Directs.XD It's fine to want new things, but let's keep our heads on straight, and NOT EXPECT THEM to be the main focus. That's what E3 is for after all, and expecting E3 before E3, then judging a Direct a failure when it doesn't live up to that, isn't very fair.XD
Thats why Nintendo doesn’t announce the Direct weeks or even days beforehand. This is done intentionally to tame any unrealistic expectations that people might have.
Done to mixed results, but I do give them credit for trying.XD I just hope that we see release dates for a few games this time.
Im hink xenoblade chronicles x will be announced for switch
Tokyo Mirage to please
They should really kill off the 3DS already. Or.... makr sure that EVERY new 3DS game is also coming to Switch.
The Switch does not need the 3DS games. It gets tons of new games. 3DS and Switch are two different things.
Awesome can’t wait. Maybe we’ll get a glimpse at SSB or Pokemon. One can only hope.
I think they said its 30 minutes long. Which is a pretty good length. Wasn't there E3 around that long? They could definitely have some surprises in store for us! Fire Emblem or maybe Animal Crossing! I think Super Smash is E3 this year. Deluxe version with more fighters/levels and launching when there Online service comes out would be my guess. Pokemon who knows. That seems to be one you'd wait and reveal at E3 also. Can't wait for that though! I'm excited for tomorrow's direct! Nintendo has been on fire since launch with Switch so I'm expecting some good stuff. Worse comes to worse there going to show more on Mario Tennis which could be fun!
I can kind of see this being a "One year later" showcase, and partial E3 primer. Some logo flashes, a couple cut-scenes, and then a "more coming, E3."
Sorry, wrong article.
i'm ready to smell some shit, as always... with maybe a millimeter of chocolate
Hoping for something great, love Nintendo but not interested in animal crossing for sure.
