nintendo direct mini partner showcase reactions june 2022

A new Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase June 2022 aired this week, and since we’re a few days removed from the presentation, we’d like to hear your thoughts about what was shown.

We might as well start off with the closer of the event, which was the announcement that the mainline Persona series is finally bound for Switch. Persona 5 Royal is coming first this October, with Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable due out later. Speaking of ports, NieR: Auomata was finally confirmed for Switch and is also launching in October. Dragon Quest Treasures got a proper reveal, was confirmed for Switch, and received a December release date. Other announcements included Harvestella from Square Enix, Pac-Man World Re-Pac, Mega Man Battle Network Collection, Super Bomerman R 2, Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom, Blanc, and Little Noah: Scion of Paradise (which also launched on the same day). You can find the full recap of everything shown here.

xenoblade chronicles 3 nintendo direct reactions

We didn’t get a general Nintendo Direct this week, but we did see a game-specific presentation for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nintendo went over a lot that was previously known, but showed off some new stuff as well. There was also lots of gameplay to check out before next month’s launch. You can check out the full recap announcement here.

Funnily enough, one of the more noteworthy pieces of information shared is that the game is getting an Expansion Pass, just like the last entry in the series. Nintendo and Monolith Soft will be rolling out new content in four waves through the end of 2023 which will be capped off by a new story scenario. Oh, and amiibo will be supported, including the Shulk figure that grants players the look of the Monado when using the Swordfighter class.

With everything that was shown earlier this week, how are you feeling about the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct and the game specifically? What are your thoughts on the Expansion Pass? Will you be picking everything up? Let us know in the comments below.

A new month started up a few days ago. Now that we’re in June, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you gotten involved in the demo for Mario Strikers: Battle League? Maybe you’re giving other releases a spin like Pac-Man Museum+, Touken Ranbu Warriors, Card Shark, or OPUS: Echo of Starsong? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

pokemon scarlet violet what do you want to see

For Pokemon Day back in February, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet were announced for Switch. Only a few details have been revealed thus far, including the starters: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. The games are also said to have “an open world where various towns with no borders blend seamlessly into the wilderness.”

If Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet see the series’ traditional marketing cycle, there’s a good chance that we’ll be getting new information soon. And if that’s the case, it’s the perfect time to talk about what you’d like to see from the new titles. Are there any types of features you’re hoping will be in the games? Let us know in the comments below.

june 2022 nintendo direct lets talk

E3 might be dead – at least this year – but June is still primed to be a big month for gaming news, announcements, and presentations. Summer Game Fest will be back in action and at least some companies are expected to host events.

The big question is whether we’ll see a new Nintendo Direct next month. Generally speaking, we get three of these events each year: in Q1, then in June, and finally September. The June presentation always ties in with E3. But even though there’s no E3 in 2022, there’s nothing stopping a Nintendo Direct from happening.

Assuming a Nintendo Direct is on track for June, what are you hopes and dreams? What sort of announcements would get you excited for the future of Switch? And which titles do you think would be realistically shown? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

lets talk indie world may 2022

After nearly half a year, Nintendo returned with a new Indie World Showcase this week. Close to twenty games saw some sort of screen time.

Some titles were announced previously, but were confirmed for Switch during the presentation like Ooblets and Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. There were also a handful of brand new announcements such as Another Crab’s Treasure and Gunbrella. On top of that, we saw the surprise releases of Mini Motorways, Soundfall, OPUS: Echo of Starsong – Full Bloom Edition, and Gibbon: Beyond the Trees. We have a complete recap here.

With that in mind, which games stood out to you during this week’s Indie World Showcase? What’s your personal highlight? Let us know in the comments below.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is three months away, so we’re definitely feeling the hype. Monolith Soft has said that this new game can be played if you haven’t gone through the first two, but those that really want the most out of it will want to see what the previous outings have to offer – especially from a story perspective.

Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2 are both special in their own right, but some fans have a clear preference for one over the other. With that in mind, we want to hear from you about which one you like more (we haven’t forgotten about Xenoblade Chronicles X, but obviously 1 and 2 are more similar to each other). How do you feel they compare from the perspective of the gameplay, world, story, characters, and music? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land finally provided something that a lot of fans had been asking for: the first true 3D entry in the series. Fans have argued that this is finally the shot in the arm that the franchise needed to gain more popularity and acclaim.

Kirby has been going strong for three decades. We’ve seen a lot of classic platformers, but also some pretty neat spinoffs with titles such as Kirby Air Ride, Kirby Canvas Curse, Kirby Mass Attack, and much more. The future of the series is looking bright after Kirby and the Forgotten Land, though we now want to hear from you about what you want to see next from the series. Share your ideas with us in the comments below.

The Expansion Pass tier for Nintendo Switch Online kicked off a few months ago, and we’ve seen a number of classic N64 games added to the service since then. Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and Banjo-Kazooie are among the included titles. Mario Golf is also following next week.

Nintendo should continue adding more N64 titles to Switch Online throughout 2022. With that said, what would you like to see on there? Let us know in the comments below.
