Let’s Talk

This week’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation delivered on what was originally promised. In a 35-minute presentation, director Masahiro Sakurai unveiled the game’s newest DLC character. Min Min, coming from ARMS, goes live on June 29.

Sakurai went over Min Min’s moveset in-depth and also showcased the new Spring Stadium stage. Other than that, we also got a first look at the Joker and Hero amiibo. Oh, and Vault Boy is joining the game as a new Mii Fighter costume. Who could have predicted that?

Now that the broadcast has ended, how are you feeling about Min Min’s inclusion in Smash Bros. Ultimate? Were you happy with the choice, or did you want to see a different ARMS character make the cut? Are you planning on picking up the Vault Boy Mii Fighter outfit? Let us know in the comments below.

We didn’t get a Nintendo Direct this week, but we did have a different type of presentation. Pokemon Presents, a broadcast dedicated to announcements for the series, aired on Wednesday.

It’s probably safe to assume that New Pokemon Snap was the highlight for most viewers. On top of that though, there were a few other announcements, including Pokemon Cafe Mix and Pokemon Smile. We have the full recap here.

Now that the presentation has aired, what do you think about the various announcements? What are your predictions for next week’s Pokemon Presents, which will feature news about a big upcoming project? Let us know in the comments below.

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

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition isn’t the only notable release for Switch on May 29. 2K also has a trio of collections due out on the same day. BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection, and XCOM 2 Collection are all dropping on May 29 as well. Even if you aren’t interested in any of them, they’re pretty notable since this is the first time we’re seeing these titles on a Nintendo platform.

So putting Xenoblade aside for a second, which one of these collections from 2K are you most interested in? Which releases will you be picking up on May 29 (or sometime down the road)? Let us know in the comments below.

Usually when Nintendo has big, new games to announce, they’re unveiled in a Nintendo Direct. That wasn’t the case with Paper Mario: The Origami King, however. News about the game’s existence was dropped out of nowhere on Thursday without any sort of notice. The status of Nintendo Directs are up in the air due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it seems that announcements may take place at any time.

After the whiplash of Paper Mario’s reveal, you quickly come to realize that we’re getting a new entry in the series on Switch in just a couple of months. It’s a quick turnaround for Nintendo, as it’s already slated for July 17.

Several details have been shared about the game so far. You’ll be going up against King Olly, who’s looking to fold the entire world. Mario can use the 1000-Fold Arms to interact with the landscape by stretching out and pulling, peeling and revealing new locations. Characters will be enlisted throughout the journey, including King Olly’s good-natured sister, Olivia, and even Bowser himself. As far as the battle system, which might be the most important aspect, Nintendo says it’ll be ring-based in which you “line up scattered enemies and maximize damage.”

Based on what we’ve seen so far, how are you feeling about Paper Mario: The Origami King? Do you plan on picking up the game in July? Let us know in the comments below.

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

Are you giving the Trials of Mana remake a try on Switch? Enjoying the calming setting of Animal Crossing: New Horizons? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Paper Mario is in a much different place now than where it was when the series first started out on the N64. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems originally made a pure RPG experience. Since though, that’s changed significantly.

After Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, the franchise went in a different direction with Super Paper Mario. The Wii game focused less on RPG mechanics and more on platforming. Things then took another turn with Paper Mario: Sticker Star. The sticker mechanic unfortunately wasn’t well received, and the battles didn’t really have much of an importance. Many of Sticker Stars’ ideas then carried over into Paper Mario: Color Splash… and that’s where things end – at least for now.

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

Still setting up your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Trying out anything from the recent Nintendo Direct Mini like Good Job or the Bravely Default II demo? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

This past Monday brought us a slew of rumors regarding Nintendo’s plans for Super Mario this year. To celebrate the franchise’s 35th anniversary, 2020 will apparently be bringing many re-releases/remasters on Switch. Much of what we’ve heard concerns 3D Mario games. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy will be returning, if the rumors turn out to be true. Super Mario 3D World may also be getting the “Deluxe” treatment with additional levels.

Out of these 3D Mario games, which one would you be most interested in seeing return on Switch? What about that game has managed to capture your attention out of all the others? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Rumors of a possible Nintendo Direct circulated earlier this month. The speculation came to a head this week, as Nintendo finally aired a new presentation this past Thursday. It may have been a “Mini” presentation, but when it’s been more than half a year without a general Nintendo Direct, you’ll take what you can get.

This week’s Nintendo Direct started out by showing Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition – specifically what’s new such as the epilogue, and the May 29 release date. There was plenty of other news like a new ARMS DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, 2K bringing BioShock, Borderlands, and XCOM 2 to Switch, Atlus putting Catherine: Full Body on the console, Burnout Paradise, Mr Driller DrillLand, Star Wars Episode I: Racer, King’s Bounty II, Vigor, and Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics. We also saw several shadowdrops between Panzer Dragoon: Remake, Good Job!, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Shinsekai: Into the Depths, and the Bravely Default II demo. The Nintendo Direct gave us a new look at The Isle of Armor for Pokemon Sword/Shield as well.

Given everything we saw in the Nintendo Direct (Mini), how’d you feel about the presentation? What was your personal highlight? And if you aren’t planning on purchase Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, what’s wrong with you? Sorry, I had to. In any case, share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
