[Let’s Talk] June 2024 Nintendo Direct reactions

Posted on June 22, 2024 by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk, Switch

The June 2024 Nintendo Direct aired this week, and it was a pretty big presentation. Considering where we’re at in the Switch’s lifecycle, there were quite a number of big announcements.

From Nintendo itself, it opened the show by announcing Mario & Luigi: Brotherhood – a surprise in its own given how many fans thought the series was dead, especially after main developer AlphaDream closed its doors. The news didn’t stop there though, as Super Mario Party Jamboree and Donkey Kong Country Returns HD were revealed as well. One of the biggest announcements of the show, The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, will see Zelda herself take the starring role in a new 2D entry. Finally, we’ve all been waiting forever for Metroid Prime 4, and we got our first glimpse of it this week and a 2025 release window.

There’s a lot of other things we could bring up, including third-party content. Highlights include Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake (and the first two entries getting the same treatment), Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection: Arcade Classics, Fantasian Neo Dimension, and Ace Attorney Investigations Collection. You can catch up on all of the news here.

What did you think of the June 2024 Nintendo Direct? Which games are you most interested in? Let us know in the comments.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Are there too many gaming showcases?


Yes. There needs to be one giant gaming event, announced way in advance.

I am probably one of those who will say this; No.

The argument is like complaining Nickelodeon does cartoons when you want reality TV.

You simply don’t watch Ubisoft, or EA, or SEGA events if you so desire it. E3 was already compartenalizing those events near its end, and likely would have been abandoned naturally for this new method.

The only ones worth really watching were the console providers near the end.
