Nintendo Direct Thread (Do NOT post here unless one is announced)


Hey, it's me!
Glad they brought back Chocobo Racing, I was really looking forward to the 3ds version only for that to disappear
Also, since Shirma is apparently the White Mage in Square's Mario Sports games, this game is now directly connected to Mario


Justice is not limited, it is a universal quality
The Nintendo 64 being announced is pretty expected, but Genesis being announced is unexpected since there's already a Genesis release with several games inside it. The higher tier pricing is probably justified for those consoles since the Nintendo 64 has better multiplayer experiences due to having 4 player games, and the Genesis being a non-Nintendo console. Game Boy was expected but it isn't there, so it's likely that it's not part of the higher tier that will be announced later.

The Nintendo 64 game selection is decent, with a mix of classics and never-before-seen games. I like that we get Banjo-Kazooie and Dr. Mario 64, which are games that are never available before.

Mario Party Superstars is looking great, but it would benefit from more boards since it's a game designed with the idea of past boards, so I hope there's more down the line, probably in DLC (preferably for free).

Thank you for reading.

The casting for the Illumination movie alone makes this direct way more worthwhile than the others.

Kirby 3D platformer is lit as hell! I saw leaked art of it before the direct and I was like "wouldn't it be great if Kirby was a 3D platformer?" and, well, turns out that my want came true! Doesn't happen too often. I really like the new direction it's taking, especially after the milquetoast and predictable Kirby Star Allies. I was really concerned that the Kirby series was going on autopilot and would become what New Super Mario Bros. was.

More Mario Party Superstars information is nice, just still wish Toadette was playable. But again I probably won't be playing this with my sister anyway, given our distance and distaste for Nintendo Switch Online. Speaking of which, the Nintendo Switch Online having a "premium" subscription tier with a lame, predictable line-up of N64 games is the most laughably wretched part of the direct and that's totally on par for course concerning Nintendo's pathetic online offers.

I just can't wait for the new Kirby game. It's his first time going into 3D, and it sure looks amazing! Yeah, I liked Star Allies, but it was very short and the post-game modes were either too difficult or too repetitive to keep me playing. Let's hope this game is a great one!

N64 and Genesis games are finally coming to Switch…but they're charging more money for them?! At least we're getting Paper Mario, Mario 64, and Banjo Kazooie, but this just makes NSO even more costly than it already was.

I'm still going to get Mario Party Superstars, since I haven't played as Birdo in a long time. She'll probably be the character that I'll use the most.

The casting for the Mario Movie looks terrible…seems like my hopes for this are going down the drain. I don't care how notable these people (minus Peach's and Spike's voice actors) are. Bring back Sam Kelly, Kenny James, Charles Martinet, Takashi Nagasako, and Atsushi Masaki. I don't care if these people are not notable outside of the games. These are the Mario voices we know and love. And some people can't live without them.

(Side note: Toad being voiced by a boy for the first time since 1997 is weird. I guess I'm just very used to Jen Taylor and Sam Kelly doing his voice for the longest time)
