nintendo direct reaction September 2021

Nintendo dropped a doozy of a Nintendo Direct for September 2021 on us this week, and now we want to hear your reaction. We saw new announcements, updates on previously-known titles, shadowdrops, and more.

From Nintendo, highlights include the reveal of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, the first look at Bayonetta 3, a new Splatoon 3 trailer, and N64 / SEGA Genesis games for Nintendo Switch Online. A ton of third-party games were on hand as well, including the Sunbreak expansion for Monster Hunter Rise, Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars, Chocobo GP, Dying Light 2 – Cloud Version, and a port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Castlevania Advance Collection and Actraiser Renaissance acted as notable shadowdrops.

This isn’t everything as there was quite a lot in the Nintendo Direct. You can see the full recap here.

Now that we’ve all had a few days to digest the September 2021 Nintendo Direct, how’d you feel about the presentation and what’s your reaction? Which games personally stood out to you? Let us know in the comments below.

You don’t need to hear from us that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is almost certainly happening. The series has only increased in popularity over the past few years, and the first two games have done quite well on Switch. But if that wasn’t enough, a report came out last month that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is in its final stages of development and could launch as early as the first half of 2022.

We know almost nothing about the game aside from a few unconfirmed tidbits from last month’s rumor, so right now’s our chance to dream. What do you personally hope to see in Xenoblade Chronicles 3? Let us know in the comments below.

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

There’s no question that No More Heroes 3 has been a major highlight for Switch having released last Friday. Other notable August games include Shadowverse: Champion’s Battle, Axiom Verge 2, Slime Rancher, Quake, and Spelunky 1 and 2. Have you picked up any of these games? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

If there was ever a time for a new library of games to join Nintendo Switch Online, it would probably be right around now, so something like Game Boy could make sense. No new NES games were added during the latest update in July. Furthermore, Nintendo seems to be running low on heavy hitters for SNES titles. So what could be next?

N64 followed the SNES in terms of Nintendo generations, but it’s not exactly a lock for Switch Online. Nintendo has shown more interest in remaking and individually re-releasing N64 titles such as Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, and Super Mario 64’s inclusion in Super Mario 3D All-Stars on Switch. Game Boy and Game Boy Color could be possible for Nintendo Switch Online. Or what if those systems were skipped over for the GBA?

After last week’s Indie World Showcase, another Nintendo-related presentation took place this week with Pokemon Presents. There were no brand new game announcements, but we pretty much knew that was going to happen going in. However, we did get a look at some big upcoming Switch games.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl took up a good chunk of the broadcast complete with a new trailer and gameplay. Pokemon Super Contests are back as Super Contest Shows, players can socialize with others around the world in the Union Room, and it’ll be possible to customize the gameplay experience with Capsule Decoration.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus closed things out with a lengthy trailer and overview. Gameplay information was shared and new creatures were revealed: Wyrdeer, Basculegion, Hisuian Braviary, and Hisuian Growlithe.

Other games were covered as well such as Pokemon Unite and Pokemon Cafe Remix. We have the full recap here.

Nintendo doesn’t have a whole lot planned for Zelda’s 35th anniversary, but 2021 does include one notable release. Skyward Sword HD, which first released on Wii in 2011, has returned on Switch.

With how crazy things were last year, there was no E3 in 2020. Nintendo itself didn’t even hold a traditional Nintendo Direct the entire year. Thankfully, we’re slowly starting to return to some semblance of normalcy. E3 was back over the past week in a digital-only format, and that came along with a brand new Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo itself had a few different announcements during the show. Metroid Dread, Mario Party Superstars, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, and WarioWare: Get It Together! are all coming to Switch over the next few months. We were also treated to a brand new look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Smash Bros. Ultimate revealed its latest fighter, adding Kazuya from Tekken. On the third-party front, we saw titles like Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water for Switch, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, Life is Strange, Danganronpa Decadence, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Shin Megami Tensei V also finally showed off proper gameplay and confirmed a November launch. You can catch up on all of the news in the recap announcement here.
