Let’s Talk

It didn’t happen last week, but the new Nintendo Direct finally aired this past Thursday. New first and third-party announcements were shared, while updates were also provided on previously-known games.

Nintendo opened the broadcast with a first look at Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Switch. The other big announcement, a new Animal Crossing for Switch in 2019, closed the show. Other notable announcements include Isabelle in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. It’s not entirely clear if Nintendo will be publishing, but Pokemon developer Game Freak also showed off its new project tentatively known as Town. Of course, this wasn’t everything, but those are some of the first-party highlights.

On the third-party front, you could argue that the biggest news came from Square Enix. Mainline Final Fantasy games are finally back on Nintendo platforms with Final Fantasy VII, IX, X / X-2 HD Remaster, and XII: The Zodiac Age for Switch. Square Enix is also bringing over World of Final Fantasy Maxima, Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, and the previously-announced Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition. Outside of Square Enix was Katamary Damacy Reroll, Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle, Cities: Skylines, and board games from Asmodee Digital.

So what’d everybody think of the latest Nintendo Direct? What was your personal highlight? Were you happy with what was shown, or did the presentation leave you wanting more? Let us know in the comments below.

If things had gone as planned, a new Nintendo Direct would have aired this week. Mother Nature decided otherwise, however. Following a major earthquake in Japan, Nintendo decided it would be best to push back the presentation to an unspecified date after it was previously scheduled for Thursday.

Usually Nintendo Directs have a short turnaround between their official announcement and actual broadcast. So because of the delay, we’re in a bit of a unique situation. Some possible news that may have been planned for the Nintendo Direct has come out early, including a Mega Man 11 demo, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, and Civilization VI. This period of uncertainly also leaves the door open to speculation.

What’s everyone hoping for and predicting will happen during the Nintendo Direct? Aside from Mega Man 11 demo, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, and Civilization VI, we’re also likely going to hear about Yoshi for Switch after the final name seemingly leaked. Smash Bros. Ultimate is also certainly a lock, as is Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS. Any other hopes or predictions? Let us know in the comments below.

Today, a new month rolled right on in. Now that we’re in September, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Maybe you’ve just started up Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate? Or perhaps a game like Okami HD or Dead Cells? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Within the past week, Nintendo announced and debuted a new Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct. The presentation was confirmed at EVO 2018 last Sunday, and was hosted just a few days ago on Wednesday.

Like the segment from Nintendo’s E3 broadcast, the Smash Bros. Direct was packed with information. King K. Rool, Simon and Richter Belmont, Dark Samus, and Chrom were all revealed as the latest fighters. We heard that 103 stages and roughly 900 music compositions will be present. Classic Mode, Stamina Battle, a Final Smash Meter, Squad Strike, Tourney Mode, Smashdown, and Training will all be included. There were other surprises as well such as Rathalos and Shovel Knight appearing as Assist Trophies.

Based on everything that was shown, were you pleased with the Direct? Are you more or less interested in Smash Bros. Ultimate after the latest presentation? Let us know how you’re feeling in the comments below.

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

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you still plugging away at Octopath Traveler on Switch? Or maybe WarioWare Gold on 3DS? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Octopath Traveler launched on Switch two weeks ago. Since the game has been out for a little while now, we want to hear about your impressions.

For those who have purchased Octopath Traveler, how much have you played? Are you enjoying the RPG? Are there certain aspects in particular you like or are disappointed with? Let us know in the comments below.

[Let’s Talk] Pikachu or Eevee?

With every major Pokemon game, there is usually a decision involved. Nintendo often publishes two versions which fans often choose between. That doesn’t go for everyone as some folks will pick up both, but players generally settle for one version.

Pokemon: Let’s Go is this year’s entry, and it’s significant since it’ll be appearing on Switch. But which version will you be going for: Pikachu or Eevee? Perhaps you’re in that small group interested in both versions? Or maybe you’re buying neither! Let us know in the comments below.

A few days ago, a new month rolled right on in. Now that we’re in July, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you trying out Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy or Wolfenstein II on Switch? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Switch has a big, exclusive RPG launching in July. Of course, we’re referring to Octopath Traveler. Despite being a couple of weeks off, you can experience a big chunk of the game as we speak. During E3, Nintendo and Square Enix added a new demo to the eShop that lets you play through three full hours.

How many of you have had a chance to play through the new demo? Did it sell you on the game? Perhaps you were already sold after seeing the initial reveal last year or trying the previous demo? Let us know how you’re feeling about Octopath Traveler in the comments below.

Just like that, another E3 is in the books. After a week of jam-packed news, trailers, and more, the expo has drawn to a close.

There was plenty to look at throughout the week, but the main event for us was on Tuesday with the Nintendo Direct. Smash Bros. Ultimate had its expected blowout, but a few other games were shown as well. Daemon X Machina and Super Mario Party were announced, Fire Emblem: Three Houses was unveiled, the new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 story content was shown, and a few leaked games were confirmed – Fortnite, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and Overcooked 2. There were a few other goodies spread out throughout the week including the release of the latest Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC and Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion, Arcade Archives Donkey Kong, and a meaty Octopath Traveler demo.

There were some notable omissions. Yoshi for Switch wasn’t present, and has been pushed back to 2019. Metroid Prime 4 was also nowhere to be seen, though that might not be too surprising considering we only saw a logo last year. Nintendo also had nothing to say about 3DS at all – including during the Treehouse streams – so we’ll have to wait a bit longer for new looks at WarioWare Gold, Luigi’s Mansion, and Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr’s Journey.

Since E3 has wrapped up, how is everyone feeling about Nintendo’s presence? Were you pleased with what was shown, or were you left wanting more? What are your thoughts on Smash Bros. Ultimate and Ridley’s inclusion? Let us know in the comments below.
