This week Nintendo brought us a lengthy Nintendo Direct; it clocked in at 45 minutes and included four 'showcase' segments and quickfire headline sections. Covering both 3DS and Switch, it packed in a lot of announcements.

As expected there were some new announcements, a few slightly out of left-field, along with details on familiar games and amiibo. Super Mario Odyssey, unsurprisingly, had the big finale, and it seemed particularly impressive. id Software's announcements were show-stealers, arguably, as they represent relatively recent and future multi-platform big-hitters heading to the Switch - it'll be fascinating to see how DOOM turns out in the Holiday season.

Of course, a lot happened, so for those of you catching up here is our traditional big summary with links to all of our news articles, along with the videos to catch up on the full broadcasts and trailers.
