@Grumblevolcano If they do that, they need to start working on the successor system's game now. Cause... Yeah.

...if it means the next game actually gets proper development time though, I'm all for it. I'll just keep ignoring Pokemon til next gen

So...it's the 24th already, and there is no sign of a partner direct for October. Is there anybody smarter than me who saw anything about the direct archive being updated? I was actually starting to enjoy them, 2/3 were great. Don't know if I missed anything.

@GilbertXI Next week is still October, could be on the 29th for example.

Speaking of Partner Directs, they have to know whether or not Bravely Default II is launching this year or not at this point, they'd need to start manufacturing cartridges soon. I wonder when we'll get confirmation either way...

That, at least, should be announced soon, since SE said they had news for it soon So, that could well be in a partner direct in the next week ....

I think the next Partner Showcase will be today. In the discover tab on the UK eshop it says "Pre-order now!" for Bravely Default II but you can't preorder it currently. So I think the Partner Showcase will be a shadow drop like with July and August (Monster Hunter was probably the only reason September's was streamed) with 1 of the headlines being Bravely Default II.

As for release date, I'm guessing early 2021 (no later than March 26th).

I have a feeling these cloud versions of more graphically intensive third party titles are about to become a common fixture for the sake of making sure Switch continually gets AAA third party support going into next gen. I doubt the rumored new Switch revision will do much to actually bring the console up to the level where it can handle PS5/Series X titles

But the important thing here is you all need to play No More Heroes

Actually glad this one was just a video as the Bravely Default stuff would have put me to sleep if I couldn't skip through it. Not too much to get excited by but I never got around to playing No More Heroes 2 when I bought it on Wii so that's something. I'll try to play it before No More Heroes 3 comes out now.

No More Heroes! I'm getting those as soon as they launch.

Also, Part Time UFO was not a game I expected to come this year...

And yay for AoC demo

@link3710 No More Heroes 1 and 2 are already out on the eShop.

Is that better than getting nothing at all though? It's certainly an option for Switch-only users with a good connection.

Fair to say I liked what they had in the direct. Not planning on playing Control on Switch (I have it on PC), but I am really interested to see how well the cloud gaming works. Cool that they let you download a free 5-min trial to check how it holds up on your connection.

I'm down for more cloud releases if they run well and they're priced right - my only concern is how long these cloud editions will stay accessible for in the long run.

I actually got Control for free on EGS with my purchase of my Dell G5 gaming laptop last year as part of a promo they were doing with RTX laptops

so yeah I've already played it and have no plans to play it on Switch. Same with Hitman 3 seeing as how I've played both 1 and 2 on Steam

Good for those who wanted it, and I imagine this won't be the last instance of these kinds of games coming to Switch. It's nice that it's free as well

@BenAV Woo! Getting it as soon as I get out of work then. That + AoC demo + Part Time UFO should keep me busy.

I also really want Control, but I feel like I shouldn't support cloud gaming on Switch...
