Let’s Talk

The latest Nintendo Direct was held this week. There were quite a few announcements, especially from third-parties, during the 40-minute broadcast.

As far as new stuff from Nintendo goes, the company actually closed things out by announcing Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition for 2020. Other highlights include Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore and Super Kirby Clash. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was given the spotlight by the reveal of Terry Bogard, the release of Banjo-Kazooie, and confirmation that even more DLC is on the way. We also can’t forget that SNES games have finally joined Nintendo Switch Online.

Third-parties were present in a big way, such as Overwatch which started the Nintendo Direct. Other announcements include Deadly Premonition 2 (and the original game seeing a shadowdrop on the eShop), Rogue Company, Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition, Return of the Obra Dinn, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Doom 64, Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, and Devil May Cry 2.

Now that the Nintendo Direct is over, what did you think of it? What was your personal highlight of the broadcast? Let us know in the comments below.

Remakes and re-releases are showing no sign of slowing down in the gaming industry. For its part, Nintendo has produced quite a few remakes of its own. Zelda: Link’s Awakening, a redone version of the Game Boy classic, will soon be coming to Switch – and that’s just one example. Zelda has certainly seen its fair share of remakes, but other IPs like Metroid and Pokemon have been given the same treatment.

Is there an older Nintendo game that you hold near and dear to your heart that you’d like to be revitalized for the current era? That’s what the focus of our Let’s Talk topic this week. If you have any thoughts on the subject, please do share them with us in the comments.

Things were a bit slow for Switch in the first half of 2019, but the second half is picking up in a big way. From Nintendo alone, the company released Super Mario Maker 2 in June, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses last month, and has Astral Chain arriving in a couple of weeks. The rest of the year looks packed, including a big September. Daemon X Machina, Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Dragon Quest XI S are launching over three consecutive weeks. We’re not even mentioning third-party releases, which includes the likes of Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

Since September has so many heavy hitters for Switch, we want to know about which game (or games) you’re looking forward to the most. How many will you be purchasing? Are you planning on picking up Nintendo’s trio of published titles? Let us know in the comments below.

A massive game arrived on Switch yesterday in the form of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. This is the first console Fire Emblem in the series in quite some time, and the first true entry in the series on Switch.

We imagine that many of you have started playing through Three Houses already. If that’s the case, how are you feeling about it so far? Which house did you choose? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

The biggest Nintendo news of the week was undoubtedly the announcement of the Switch Lite. Out of nowhere, the news was casually dropped on Wednesday morning.

Nintendo has described the Switch Lite as a fully dedicated handheld gaming experience. Output to the TV is gone, as is the ability to detach the Joy-Con as well as several features like HD Rumble. However, the price is significantly cheaper, it’s a bit lighter, and the battery should last longer. Oh, and now there’s finally a proper d-pad.

We want to know: will you be purchasing the Switch Lite when it launches later this year? Or are you perfectly fine with the current Switch you have? Perhaps you don’t have the system yet and this will be a new opportunity to get in on the fun. No matter your situation, let us know how you’re feeling about the Switch Lite below.

Just when some had thought that Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct could be ending with the announcement of Banjo-Kazooie in Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans were treated to one more surprise. We were given a first look look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 with a minute-long trailer. Although gameplay wasn’t shown, Nintendo left plenty of hints and sequences that will leave fans speculating about what’s to come for months on end.

Since everyone has had a couple of weeks to sit on the news, we wanted to hold our first Let’s Talk discussion about the game. What is everyone hoping to see in Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? What changes or improvements would you want to see Nintendo implement? Do you have any theories about the story you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below.

Just like that, E3 2019 is over. It was a busy week of announcements, with Nintendo contributing a lot to the news cycle.

The latest Nintendo Direct aired on Tuesday. A number of announcements were made, including a sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, No More Heroes 3, Trials of Mana (and its previous collection coming west), Contra Rogue Corps, Panzer Dragoon Remake, Empire of Sin, and The Dark Crystal. A number of ports also appeared such as The Witcher 3, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and Alien: Isolation. On top of that, we got first looks and release dates for the likes of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Luigi’s Mansion 3.

Now that we’ve had a few days to digest everything, how do you feel about Nintendo’s presence at E3 2019, and the Direct in particular? What was your personal highlight of the show? Let us know in the comments below.
