Let’s Talk

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.

Nintendo dropped another Nintendo Direct on us a few days ago. It’s been all about third-parties over the summer, but not this week. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario, fans were treated to all sorts of news and announcements.

There were obviously a few key highlights. Super Mario 3D All-Stars was finally confirmed, bringing Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy to Switch. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a port of the Wii U title with new content and features, was also revealed. We also heard about Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, Super Mario Bros. 35, and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. for the first time. Oh, and the original Super Mario All-Stars dropped on Nintendo Switch Online. There was other news that you can catch up on in the announcement recap here.

So how’d you feel about the Super Mario 35th Anniversary Direct and everything that was shown? Which games do you plan on playing? Let us know in the comments below.

Another Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase is in the books. After the first presentation of its kind in July, it only took about a month for the next one. Also, as far as actual content and new announcements are concerned, there was noticeably more this time around.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack, World of Tanks Blitz, Rig Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions, and Just Dance 2021 were the new announcements. Other games were shown as well, including Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, which received a November release date. In case you missed it, you can find the recap announcement here.

We’re a few days removed from the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, and now we want to hear from you. What were your overall thoughts of the show, and how do you feel it compared to the last one? Which of the featured games are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.

Nintendo hosted one of its Indie World Showcase presentations this week. As is normally the case, we were able to check out a whole bunch of upcoming indie games for Switch. And while we usually get a few shadowdrops during these broadcasts, there were quite a few this time around – probably the most we’ve ever had. Those that missed the event can catch up on the big news in the announcement recap here.

Now that the Indie World Showcase is behind us, what were your personal highlights? Which games are you looking forward to the most? Also, if you picked up any of the new titles that released, what are your thoughts on them so far? Let us know in the comments below.

Metroid fans have been waiting a long time for Metroid Prime 4, and it seems that the game is still pretty far out. When Nintendo made the original announcement at E3 2017, there wasn’t much to see. We were just given a logo… and that’s basically it. It’s more than likely that development hadn’t reached a point where Nintendo felt comfortable showing anything from the game itself.

The big blow concerning Metroid Prime 4 came at the start of 2019. It was never officially confirmed which developer was working on the project, but Nintendo decided to scrap everything that had been done up to that point and have Retro Studios take over. It was definitely not a bad idea to have the original Metroid Prime team lead development, but that meant fans would be forced to wait even longer for a proper look at the game, let alone the actual launch.

There’s very little that we know about Metroid Prime 4. As we wait for a proper update, now’s the time to think about what we’d like to see from the game. It should be a first-person adventure, but everything else is on the table. Is there a certain direction you’d like to see Retro take with Metroid Prime 4? Do you have any particular gameplay mechanics in mind? Let us know in the comments below.

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

Atlus graced fans with some long overdue news this week. Shin Megami Tensei V, which was announced back in January 2017, will finally release next year. We still don’t have an exact date, but fans can rest easy knowing that they’ll finally be able to play the RPG in 2021.

That wasn’t the only news from Atlus. Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is on the way, which is something entirely new. Japan is getting it first in October, but western fans unfortunately need to wait until Spring 2021.

With a pair of Shin Megami Tensei games on the way to Switch in the future, let’s talk about the series in general. How many of the titles have you played? How do you feel about Shin Megami Tensei overall? Let us know in the comments below.

For a lot of its games, Nintendo has a short turnaround between announcement and release. Paper Mario: The Origami King really took that trend to the next level. The game was only just revealed two months ago, yet it’s already out.

Though it’s only been a day since the game came out, we imagine that many of you are already playing Paper Mario: The Origami King. Based on what you’ve experienced, how do you feel about it so far? What do you think about the gameplay, story, characters, or other aspects? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
