Let’s Talk

Nintendo came out of the gates swinging for Switch’s launch year in 2017. A big part of that was due to a couple of heavy hitters that dropped within just a few months of each other. Not only did Switch have a new 3D Zelda game at launch in Breath of the Wild, but it also received a new 3D Mario thanks to Super Mario Odyssey.

We already know what’s next for Zelda. At least year’s E3, Nintendo announced Breath of the Wild 2, and there’s a good chance of it coming in 2021. Mario, however, is more of a mystery. There’s been plenty of love for 3D Mario on Switch with Super Mario 3D All-Stars and the upcoming Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. However, the next true step is an unknown quantity.

Could we end up seeing Super Mario Odyssey 2? Or perhaps another sequel like Super Mario Galaxy 3? Nintendo could also be pursuing something entirely brand new. Let us know what you think could be next for 3D Mario and what you’d personally like to see in the comments below.

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

Are you going through some of Nintendo’s recent releases like Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit or Pikmin 3 Deluxe? Or perhaps you’re trying out the games dropped as part of the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase such as No More Heroes or Part Time UFO? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

There are only a couple of months remaining in 2020, but Nintendo still had one final Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase in store for the year. Another presentation aired on Wednesday.

The Nintendo Direct Mini had a few announcements, surprise releases, and more. In terms of what’s entirely new, No More Heroes 1 and 2 were finally announced – and immediately released – for Switch. Speaking of surprise launches, Part Time UFO dropped on the Switch eShop, as did Control Ultimate Edition – Cloud Version. Other new announcements included Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, Hitman 3 – Cloud Version, Griftlands: Nintendo Switch Edition, and Surviving the Aftermath. There were a few game updates as well, including first proper gameplay of No More Heroes III, a final release date for Bravely Default II, and a new look at Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – complete with a demo. We have a full recap announcement outlining everything that was shown here.

How did you ultimately feel about this week’s presentation and everything that was shown? How would you rank it compared to the other Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcases from this year? Let us know in the comments below.

It was about a month ago that Nintendo announced that it’s sunsetting the 3DS. Production has discontinued, meaning no additional units will be shipped to stores. Developers can still technically release new games and the eShop will remain online, but for all intents and purposes, the 3DS’ life cycle is over.

The 3DS originally launched in 2011, so it’s been around for nearly a decade. A massive amount of titles have been released over that span. From Nintendo itself you’ve got games like Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Fire Emblem Awakening. Third-parties supported the system with Monster Hunter, the Bravely series, and Shin Megami Tensei IV.

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

Have you tried out the just-released Super Mario Bros. 35? Going through the different games in Super Mario 3D All-Stars? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

As far as we know, Nintendo has revealed its full slate of games for the rest of 2020. Perhaps there will be a smaller title added in or a surprise like Bravely Default II isn’t delayed, but I think it’s safe to say that there won’t be any major surprises.

Things do at least seem a lot more encouraging now than they did earlier in the year. Over the past few weeks, we’ve found out about Pikmin 3 Deluxe, Super Mario 3D All-Stars (which just launched), Mario Kart Live, and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Throw in extras like the Cadence of Hyrule physical release, Super Mario Bros. 35 and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., and the lineup is at least fairly packed.

What are you planning on picking up and playing as far as Nintendo releases from Nintendo this year? Have you already started going through Super Mario 3D All-Stars? Let us know in the comments below.

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.

With the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase behind us, how are you feeling about it? What do you make of the new Monster Hunter games and other announcements? Let us know in the comments below.

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.
