Pre-order updates (9/16/18)

Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

It didn’t happen last week, but the new Nintendo Direct finally aired this past Thursday. New first and third-party announcements were shared, while updates were also provided on previously-known games.

Nintendo opened the broadcast with a first look at Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Switch. The other big announcement, a new Animal Crossing for Switch in 2019, closed the show. Other notable announcements include Isabelle in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. It’s not entirely clear if Nintendo will be publishing, but Pokemon developer Game Freak also showed off its new project tentatively known as Town. Of course, this wasn’t everything, but those are some of the first-party highlights.

On the third-party front, you could argue that the biggest news came from Square Enix. Mainline Final Fantasy games are finally back on Nintendo platforms with Final Fantasy VII, IX, X / X-2 HD Remaster, and XII: The Zodiac Age for Switch. Square Enix is also bringing over World of Final Fantasy Maxima, Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, and the previously-announced Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition. Outside of Square Enix was Katamary Damacy Reroll, Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle, Cities: Skylines, and board games from Asmodee Digital.

So what’d everybody think of the latest Nintendo Direct? What was your personal highlight? Were you happy with what was shown, or did the presentation leave you wanting more? Let us know in the comments below.

Retailers have started taking pre-orders for products featured in the last Nintendo Direct. We’ve rounded up various links for these items below.

Amazon Japan has added in a listing for Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS, showing the packaging image for the country. We’ve included it above.
