Let’s Talk

The Game Awards tend to be a bit different than the typical awards show. Rather than just focusing on the awards themselves, the event is also known for offering up a look at what’s to come in the future. We get to see new looks at games, new trailers, and new announcements.

Nintendo does have an extensive history at The Game Awards. They were right there at the beginning in 2014 by having Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma demonstrate Zelda: Breath of the Wild with off-screen footage, and that’s continued in later years. We’ve seen the announcements of Bayonetta 3 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and more.

You can probably expect Nintendo to show up in one form or another at The Game Awards 2020. The big question, of course, is what the company will actually be presenting? Could we get a new look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? Will Bayonetta 3 resurface? Perhaps something brand new will be announced. Share your predictions with us – or at least what you personally hope to see – in the comments below.

What should be Nintendo’s big game for the holiday arrived yesterday. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is now available worldwide.

Although the game has only been out for about a day or so, it’s likely that many Switch owners have made a purchase and have played through a fair amount so far. It also helps that a demo was released a couple of weeks ago which contains a good chunk to experience.

Based on what you’ve played so far – be it the main game or demo – what are your thoughts as of now? Who’s your favorite character to play as? Let us know in the comments below.

Nintendo came out of the gates swinging for Switch’s launch year in 2017. A big part of that was due to a couple of heavy hitters that dropped within just a few months of each other. Not only did Switch have a new 3D Zelda game at launch in Breath of the Wild, but it also received a new 3D Mario thanks to Super Mario Odyssey.

We already know what’s next for Zelda. At least year’s E3, Nintendo announced Breath of the Wild 2, and there’s a good chance of it coming in 2021. Mario, however, is more of a mystery. There’s been plenty of love for 3D Mario on Switch with Super Mario 3D All-Stars and the upcoming Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. However, the next true step is an unknown quantity.

Could we end up seeing Super Mario Odyssey 2? Or perhaps another sequel like Super Mario Galaxy 3? Nintendo could also be pursuing something entirely brand new. Let us know what you think could be next for 3D Mario and what you’d personally like to see in the comments below.

A new month rolled right on in this week. Now that we’re in November, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Are you going through some of Nintendo’s recent releases like Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit or Pikmin 3 Deluxe? Or perhaps you’re trying out the games dropped as part of the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase such as No More Heroes or Part Time UFO? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

There are only a couple of months remaining in 2020, but Nintendo still had one final Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase in store for the year. Another presentation aired on Wednesday.

The Nintendo Direct Mini had a few announcements, surprise releases, and more. In terms of what’s entirely new, No More Heroes 1 and 2 were finally announced – and immediately released – for Switch. Speaking of surprise launches, Part Time UFO dropped on the Switch eShop, as did Control Ultimate Edition – Cloud Version. Other new announcements included Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, Hitman 3 – Cloud Version, Griftlands: Nintendo Switch Edition, and Surviving the Aftermath. There were a few game updates as well, including first proper gameplay of No More Heroes III, a final release date for Bravely Default II, and a new look at Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – complete with a demo. We have a full recap announcement outlining everything that was shown here.

How did you ultimately feel about this week’s presentation and everything that was shown? How would you rank it compared to the other Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcases from this year? Let us know in the comments below.

It was about a month ago that Nintendo announced that it’s sunsetting the 3DS. Production has discontinued, meaning no additional units will be shipped to stores. Developers can still technically release new games and the eShop will remain online, but for all intents and purposes, the 3DS’ life cycle is over.

The 3DS originally launched in 2011, so it’s been around for nearly a decade. A massive amount of titles have been released over that span. From Nintendo itself you’ve got games like Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Fire Emblem Awakening. Third-parties supported the system with Monster Hunter, the Bravely series, and Shin Megami Tensei IV.

A new month rolled right on in this week. Now that we’re in October, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you tried out the just-released Super Mario Bros. 35? Going through the different games in Super Mario 3D All-Stars? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

As far as we know, Nintendo has revealed its full slate of games for the rest of 2020. Perhaps there will be a smaller title added in or a surprise like Bravely Default II isn’t delayed, but I think it’s safe to say that there won’t be any major surprises.

Things do at least seem a lot more encouraging now than they did earlier in the year. Over the past few weeks, we’ve found out about Pikmin 3 Deluxe, Super Mario 3D All-Stars (which just launched), Mario Kart Live, and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Throw in extras like the Cadence of Hyrule physical release, Super Mario Bros. 35 and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., and the lineup is at least fairly packed.

What are you planning on picking up and playing as far as Nintendo releases from Nintendo this year? Have you already started going through Super Mario 3D All-Stars? Let us know in the comments below.

The third Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase aired earlier this week. Unlike past presentations, this one was live streamed. Generally if Nintendo gives advance notice of a Nintendo Direct and doesn’t let you skip through it, there’s usually an important announcement.

The broadcast did indeed kick off with the biggest reveal of the show. Switch finally has its first original Monster Hunter game in Monster Hunter Rise, which is already confirmed for a March 2021 launch. And if that wasn’t enough, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is coming next summer.

Outside of Monster Hunter, Ori and the Will of the Wisps was revealed and immediately released. Hades and The Long Dark saw shadowdrops as well. In terms of other announcements, we found out about Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny, Sniper Elite 4, and Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise. Rune Factory 5 is a game we knew about previously, but we now actually know what it looks like (and the game is now launching in 2021). You can find the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase recap announcement here.

With the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase behind us, how are you feeling about it? What do you make of the new Monster Hunter games and other announcements? Let us know in the comments below.
