Nintendo Direct

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.

Now that the Nintendo Direct is over and a few days have gone by, how are you feeling about the presentation? What’s your standout game of the show? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Nintendo Directs are always big events, and many enjoy co-streaming. For those that are unaware, this involves having the broadcast running live on an outlet like YouTube while showing reactions in real time.

Co-streaming hasn’t been an issue with Nintendo Directs previously, but at least for today’s presentation, fans could run into issues. The company has advised fans against “mirroring Nintendo Direct footage and sound” while the stream is happening. Videos with reactions are fine, but anything containing audio and visuals can only be posted once the broadcast is finished, assuming they fall in line with the Big N’s previous guidelines.

Of course, this news only applies to Japan. Nintendo has not made any statements for other regions at this time.

The final Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase had plenty of news, and Nintendo has now recapped everything shown in the presentation in an official press release. We have the recap announcement 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.
