I am going to predict the starter species before the Direct airs: Grass dog, Fire snake and Water pig. I think it might be way off base, so we shall see.

We already have a grass snake and fire pig Pokémon, reusing species would be pointless, as it wouldn’t add variety.

I can see the appeal for variety in your opinion, but I don't think it's out of the question for certain species to be reused, even if it's more of a close relative. As an example, we have Squirtle and Turtwig, who you can argue are not quite based the same tortoise, but they are still generally tortoises. In this case, it's not necessarily a "snake" I am predicting, but some other serpent-based species such as a boa, a rattlesnake or another cobra.

Thank you for reading.

You mean to say "the opinion that people have wrong opinions is a wrong opinion itself."

the only wrong opinions are the ones that aren't mine.

I hope they continue to experiment more, Sun and Moon not being confined to the gym leaders and attempting a story was nice. That being said I fully expect 8 gym leaders, elite four, blahblah, super duper evolutions (exclusive to gen 1 pokemon haha) and another pet your pokemon thing that they spent too much time on.

the starters are all round as *bleep*, im shocked im not

And it's also the correct one.

I'm glad that there are actual surprises (as in, not expected) for this Nindie direct. The three biggest announcements from what I see are:
1) Cuphead for Nintendo Switch
2) Blaster Master Zero II (and it's available right after the direct
3) Cadence of Hyrule, basically having Cadence of Crypt of the Necrodancer in Hyrule. Yes, it features Link and Zelda. (I hope Tingle's there too)

No wonder this was an unskippable video, unlike the previous Nindie direct.

Thank you for reading.

Wow, Cadence opens the door to a lot of possibilities   , Princess Peach game from Wayforward anyone?

indie showcases are usually mixed bags for me, theres a couple of games that intruige me, and then the rest i dont care about at all. new blaster master and crypt of the necrodancer were the highlights for me this time.

blaster master zero was a great game early on in the switches lifecycle when good games (and games in general, really) were still few and far between, and the free dlc made a great game even better. i hope they add more characters later on, but even if they dont i'm sure it'll be great. ive already gone ahead and bought it, so gonna jump into it really soon

crypt of the necrodancer getting a sequel with 16-bit artstyle was cool enough on its own... but a zelda crossover?! its pretty surreal to think that this is something that even exists, and in an official capacity to boot. definitely looking forward to seeing more of this, hopefully one day i'll be able to finally beat the original...

seeing cuphead was also pretty cool and probably the best way to start it off. i'm not as excited for it as the previous two, but its definitely one of the biggest announcements, especially when you consider the implications of mircosoft bringing some of their indies to switch. i've heard ori and the blind forest is a pretty good game, so here's hoping that it'll be the next one to make the jump
