Can we take a moment to appreciate how many of the most critically appraised games of all time they dropped in this Direct?

  • Nier Automata YoRHa Edition - 91/100
  • Persona 3 Portable - 89/100
  • Persona 4 Golden - 93/100
  • Persona 5 Royal - 95/100
  • Portal - 90/100
  • Portal 2 - 95/100

And that's not even accounting for Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, the expansion to another 88/100 game. Or Mario + Rabbids, a sequel to an 85/100 game.

I don't think I've ever seen a Direct drop that many of the most critically appraised games ever. Like Nintendo said alright, it's time to start chasing the hall of famers.

I'm surprised Klonoa didn't appear in the Partner Showcase, sure it releases in just over a week but there's the situation with Japan getting a demo but no sign of demo elsewhere.

I have to honest, there's a small part of me that's terrified to wait for games like Klonoa, because maybe the company will be like "well people didn't buy it enough in the first month, guess this series is dead!"

Switch gamers are gonna need to get Jenny Craig on speed dial pretty soon with how fat we're eating lately.

Just consider,

  • Mario Strikers Battle League
  • Fire Emblem Warriors Three Hopes
  • TMNT Shredder's Revenge
  • Neon White
  • Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
  • Wreckfest
  • Live A Live
  • Portal
  • Portal 2
  • Capcom Fighting Collection
  • Sonic Origins
  • AI Somnium Files Nirvana Initiative
  • Demon Slayer
  • KOTOR II

All in the span of a month. A month!!! Each and every one of these games worthy of purchase and time spent playing. Many of them extremely high quality games.

And so much more on the way. The party just doesn't stop.

I'm blown away by the support Switch is getting now. It took a few years, that's for sure. And previous years weren't bad by any means. On the contrary, they've been pretty great. But I think we can officially draw a line in the sand and make a clear distinction between support today, and support from years past.

When ppl used to say Switch wasn't getting enough support? I don't think anyone is saying that now. We made it. We actually made it. Close your eyes and think back to 2017 or 2018. Remember all the talk of, "man I hope one day Switch gets its own exclusive MH, there's rumors it's being worked on", or "if only they'd bring Persona to Switch, like that'll ever happen", or the IGN April Fools videos putting all sorts of fake announcements... that's no longer a joke. Virtually all those games are on Switch now, or are reasonably expected to. Imagine being in 2017, and fast forwarding through time to take a peak at the lineup we have in 2022. We'd have been blown away.

That image is making me panic sweat because I will likely buy 80% of it. I need free time.

Does the portal companion collection support Pro controller Gyro aiming by any chance? If not it’s a hard pass for me

@JaxonH Jeez... Most of the titles in that graphic are decently high profile releases too. Almost all of them are sequels to notable indies, well known IPs, and/or exclusives.

Um... so the first new console Monster Rancher game in god knows how long is one where you're... raising kaiju from the Ultraman series.

I can't even believe I just typed that.

@NeonPizza Are there even any games that only support gyro on the joycons, but not on the pro controller (aside from LGPE, which only support joycons to begin with)? I can't imagine that functionality is missing.

@Ralizah

Resident evil revelations 1 only supports joy-con gyro which works fine in hand held mode but performs horribly when docked with the TV. Probably one of those rare occasions as far as omitting pro controller gyro, but it’s a thing.

I feel obligated to buy that Ultraman Rancher game if it gets an English Asian release.

Given the confirmed lineup so far, I'm honestly leaning towards Bayonetta 3 being delayed to 2023 if the Metroid Prime rumour is true. I don't see Bayonetta 3 releasing in early October because of Nier Automata, Sparks of Hope is the late October Nintendo related release, November seems unlikely because Pokemon but even more unlikely if the Prime rumour is true. Maybe early December if it stays in 2022?

@JaxonH It's supposedly getting an Asian English release.

Might be the first Switch game I import. What a profoundly weird crossover.

I usually wait to buy Ubisoft games, but I'll be making an exception with this one. Really excited to dig into this.

@Grumblevolcano It could be a mid-late September release. Splatoon 3 does release really early in the month so there's definitely room for it to slide in there.
