It's the most wonderful tiiiiiime of the yeeeear. No, not the holiday with the gift-slinging old man (although that's a good one too), it's Nintendo Direct time, baby!
And, of course, as is traditional on Nintendo Direct Eve, we put out a tray of 1-Up Mushrooms and Super Stars for Miyamoto, and we sat around the fire speculating about what we might get. We've been good gamers this year — we never troll, never disconnect, and always say "gg" when it is warranted — so we feel like we've earned some of our wishlist!
Here are our predictions, hopes, and fears for the 40-minute showcase — let us know yours in the comments!
Switch OLED, new controllers, Labo… lol
KATE: We saw that new controller being registered the other day… I don’t know what it could be, but a Game Boy controller would be neat to see, even if it’s just because I’d love to know how on earth they tackle that idea. However, I’d also love an N64 controller, just so the younguns can go through the same “but I don’t have three hands” dilemma we did.
TOM: A Nintendo Switch Online controller definitely seems like a good bet, and I do like the idea of a cute little wireless N64 controller; that would fly off the My Nintendo shelves. It’s so hard to tell with Nintendo though, it’d be funny if it was some wacky Labo-style announcement out of left field.
RYAN: Yeah, I’d also bet on the new controller being related to Switch Online, which probably means that it now won’t be anything to do with it at all. I never felt the need to pick up the NES and SNES controllers, but a quirky little Game Boy or N64 controller might be too tempting to resist.
Ring Fit News
We can hope
KATE: Or, hear me out: More games that use the Ring-Con. I’m not talking about adding Ring-Con minigames to WarioWare: Get It Together, I’m talking about full games designed around that squishy controller. It was expensive! Come on!
RYAN: Maybe a sequel? A co-op sequel for you and your partner/friend/grandma to workout side-by-side. Ring Fit Adventure 2Gether.
Nintendo Switch Online Update
Game Boy, N64
GAVIN: There’s been too much smoke recently for there not to be any fire, even if it’s a tiny little spark rather than a huge blaze of all the retro platforms you could possibly want. I’ve got access to pretty much everything I’d want to play already via original hardware, but I’ll happily download any new app Nintendo puts out before promptly ignoring it.
KATE: This seems pretty certain… but I’d still like to see what exactly this means for NSO. There are tons of games I’d love to see on my Switch, but I imagine that Nintendo doesn’t want to pay licensing fees for most of them. Still, the first-party catalogue is a cracker for Game Boy and N64.
TOM: If the Game Boy reports are on the money, I’d like GBA as well, just because that cool little system had some cracking games and giving players a couple of weeks to play Metroid: Fusion just makes sense. N64 would be neat, of course. I just hope the subscription ramps up in general with some nice extras; I think it’s good for the money, but it’d be nice to see Nintendo change the narrative to something more positive.
Coffee and blood
GAVIN: That rumoured Castlevania Advance Collection would be a nice little present to ease us into Autumn. Switch might not have Symphony of the Night yet, but Aria of Sorrow is pretty special.
TOM: Alan Wake Remastered looks a solid bet thanks to the ratings that popped up online; like many I’d prefer a simple port based on the original that works natively, but it’ll probably be a (*sigh) cloud version. Because of the weird timing of this stream (terrible for EU, very early for Japan) I don’t expect megatons, but no doubt there’ll be some goodies and an NSO update, maybe that’s enough?
Is there anything left to learn?
GAVIN: I’ve had my fill of pre-release Dread details — I’d be happy with a complete media blackout until 8th October.
TOM: What Gavin said.
RYAN: Also what Gavin said.
KATE: What Tom and Ryan said.
Life Is Strange: True Colors
KATE: Square Enix has been weirdly silent on the delayed release date of Life Is Strange: True Colors for Switch, and I’m hoping it’s because of the Direct. I want to play it!
TOM: I just hope the weird silence isn’t the “oh no we announced it and can’t get it to run” kind.
Mario Party Superstars
The one party to rule them all
TOM: I actually want a segment for this, it’s the perfect Christmas game!
RYAN: I’m not usually a Mario Party fan, but something about this one grabbed my attention when it was first shown off. I’d happily see a little more – and I’m sure we will.
Tanks for the memories
TOM: I adore strategy and tactics-based games, but never played the originals. Shocking, I know, but I’m pretty excited about these stylish remakes. Maybe we’ll get an overview that introduces a new feature; I’d quite like daily and weekly challenges, or something along those lines.
RYAN: I too have never played Advance Wars so I wouldn’t mind seeing more of the remake. There are so many games and so little time these days that I really need to be convinced I’ll like something before bothering to jump in, so hopefully Nintendo’s marketing team can lure me in with some new footage.
Big Brain Academy
Test your pandemic-atrophied grey matter
TOM: They can’t do worse than the reveal trailer with the Dad, the actor’s brief seemed to be ‘pretend you’re permanently peeved and bored’.
There’s always one
KATE: I know this is going to make me sound boring, but if they do a bunch of “OUT NOW” announcements, I hope it’s games I don’t want to play. My list is so long right now, and we’re about to enter the busy season...
TOM: I think their record is 7 ‘out now’ games from the last Indie World - let’s break that record (they won’t, but gosh that’d be fun).
RYAN: Maybe they’ll drag Reggie back just to do a surprise ‘Mother 3 out after this presentation’ segment. They definitely won’t.
Smash Bros. Announcements
GAVIN: At the very least there’s got to be some new amiibo news, but time’s running out for the final DLC Challenger announcement if it’s going to be released by the end of the year. Obviously, Nintendo might save it for The Game Awards, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sakurai trotted out for the ‘final’ time. Everyone’s saying Dragaux, but my money’s on Crash.
TOM: Make it stop.
RYAN: Waluigi for the memes? Sakurai himself, also for the memes? I’d quite like Spyro, but I forgot to bombard Sakurai with tweets to let him know so I doubt it’ll happen.
KATE: It's going to be some beefy guy named Craig from a cult favourite Game Boy game that I've never heard of.
40 minutes means at least one sizzle reel, right?
KATE: When it comes to indies, I just want lots of them. I love having the eShop stuffed-to-bursting with excellent games that I’ll never have time to play, because being spoiled for choice is a fantastic position to be in. Just pipe them all directly into my veins, thanks.
GAVIN: Braid Anniversary Edition was announced ages ago, right? It’s about time we saw that again. I’d take a port of The Witness, too, and I think that completes my indie wishlist on Switch. Switch has practically everything else.
TOM: A 40-minute sizzle reel, can you imagine? We’d all spontaneously combust. But yeah, I love sizzle reels and Indie ‘out nows’, so fingers crossed.
TOM: I think this could be a good bet for an overview trailer that breaks the ‘out in 2021’ rule. Maybe a look at a couple of maps, or perhaps the hub / central area, it’ll look awesome in any case if it makes an appearance..
RYAN: I keep forgetting that Splatoon 3 is a thing so anything – even just another small tease – would be great. Splatoon 2 is one of my most-played Switch games, so I’m sure 3 will hook me in yet again.
KATE: I just really hope the voice chat for Splatoon 3 has a better option than “use the confusing app”.
Not that there’s anything new to see
KATE: I’m just guessing this one because it’s a winter release (and Nintendo said that’s what to expect) and it’s a massive collection of games. It already has a release date, so I’m not sure what else we can learn, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets thrown in there… maybe some extra DLC?
TOM: The Pokeymans franchise is normally saved for its own shows, though they have occasionally drafted in the Pokemon Company boss to introduce a trailer so… maybe?
RYAN: I can’t imagine anything being shown other than a reminder that the Diamond and Pearl remakes and Legends: Arceus are on the way. Perhaps a new trailer?
Don’t get your hopes up
GAVIN: I just wish we knew how development was progressing.
TOM: Haha, good one.
RYAN: Hopefully it’s going “very well”.
Animal Crossing DLC/Updates
KATE: Now that it’s Autumn, you know what we need? A Pumpkin Spice Latte… with pigeon milk.
GAVIN: Nintendo could include the tiniest morsel of Animal Crossing: New Horizons content and it would likely steal all the headlines. New Horizons is seriously lacking in the caffeine department, but more than Brewster, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some sort of Happy Home Designer-sized spin-off, either. Not a ‘proper’ Animal Crossing game, you understand — a new AC product to purchase for your Nintendo Switch entertainment system. Good or bad, it would sell in he-ouge quantities.
KATE: I think AC fans would riot if we got a spin-off “instead of” updates.
TOM: I still play Animal Crossing every day and good grief it needs new content. It’s resembling real life a little too closely - repetitive, settled, predictable. I adore the game, or my islanders to be more specific, but Nintendo has dropped the ball over the past 6-12 months. Like Gavin said anything will do at this stage, give us something.
RYAN: For some reason I hadn’t even considered the possibility of a new game, but Gavin’s Happy Home Designer-like idea is a good shout. Is it also time for New Horizons to receive a Welcome amiibo-style major update to really freshen things up?
Nintendo buys Microsoft
KATE: Alex said Arms 2, so I’m guessing Arms 2. Except I hope they call it “Arms 2: Legs”.
TOM: Miyamoto pops up with a Pikmin in his jacket breast pocket, bringing back decade-old memories, and says Pikmin 4 is in the can and out after the show.
RYAN: Furukawa comes on and says that he’ll personally track down all the people selling retro Nintendo games on eBay for ridiculous prices and make them see sense, finally letting us buy a copy of Metroid Fusion once and for all.
Microsoft buys Nintendo
TOM: They announce another Smash Bros. expansion pack and devote 20 minutes to showcasing the moveset of exciting new character Bubsy.
RYAN: Oh god, please not another Smash Bros. expansion. Let it rest.
KATE: The only way I’ll be okay with Smash is if they finally let Waluigi in.
GAVIN: Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival Deluxe.
That one really unlikely thing that you want
Fantasy Life 2
TOM: Sin & Punishment 3.
GAVIN: Rare Replay: Switch Edition. If I keep thinking it and keep saying it, Banjo will eventually appear on Switch — that’s how it worked for Smash. I also just really want to rebuild my awesome USS Enterprise forever lost to time in a Nuts and Bolts save I foolishly deleted a decade ago. An underrated game, that.
KATE: I’d almost given up having hope for unlikely things, but now I want Rare Replay. Give me Viva Piñata on a Nintendo console where it belongs!!
RYAN: I’m going to say a Dino Crisis remaster again. I used to say Pokémon Snap 2 every time and that actually happened, so you never know.
Ah, there's nothing like a Nintendo Direct to kick off the Autumn months. Go free into the comments, my friends, and speculate like there's no tomorrow.
id love to see gameboy games on the switch!!
not going to hold my breath for it though :/
Smash final character reveal, Animal Crossing Big update, Advance War trailer, Triangle Strategy new stuff, splatoon 3, mario+ rabbids new hope, . hack// GU, Alan Wake, Aragami 2, Borderlands 3, Fall Guys, Disco Elysium, Castlevania Collection, GTA Collection and i hope Resident Evil
I reckon a new Mario adventure is almost inevitable, we're due one. Will it be Odyssey 2,Galaxy 3 or something totally new like Super Mario Universe or Cosmos. Or perhaps even a new style 2D Mario that (hopefully) doesn't have 'New' in the title
Man I'm excited.
I never go in with expectations and this back half of the year is already packed. I just wanna have a good time. If they gave a date for BOTW2 that would be all I wanted, but that's just for budgeting reasons. I do hope they announce the final smash character so we can end this madness though.
Nobody thinks Zelda? They did promise to reveal more over the "coming months", and what better time than a big direct?
Pokemon was previously shown in Directs, for example SwSh was featured in the September 2019 Direct where they even announced Cramorant and Polteageist. Also the DLCs were featured in the March 2020 Direct Mini. Therefore I think it's not unlikely they show at least one of the upcoming Pokemon games
"Unlikely but still wish it comes true"
Dance Dance Revolution on Nintendo Switch.
ARMS 2, please...
Chibi Boxing game by either Nintendo or 3rd party developers.
A 1080 Snowboard release for winter should do the trick!
Wave Race for spring also would be good 😂🌊
I recommend everyone reading this to check out the video instead!
An actual fun talk between the lovely Alex, John and Zion. 😄
@OorWullie That would be lovely, but I’ve got a feeling that Nintendo might want to save the next big 3D Mario for a more powerful switch system, whenever that might come out, they will want a system seller and as we are yet to have Breath of the Wild 2, it won’t be Zelda for the next more powerful system.
I know this would never happen, but I'd love to see Wii games on the Switch. Also Yoshi's Woolly World. I don't want to buy a Wii U just for one game.
Hahah, none of these predictions make me excited, except for the Castlevania one. Oh, how Nintendo consoles have changed.
Is there a Smash character that wouldn't disappoint everyone?
Who is the most agreeable character ever ("that's not what I wanted, but that's too cool to be disappointed")?
Maybe Master Hand, from Smash Bros?
Switch's version of the Mii fighter that allows for enough customization to model your own low-poly version of that character you love, or download others' creations?
What's that Game Boy controller nonsense I permanently read here about? Basically, there already IS a Game Boy controller available. It's the NES controller for Nintendo Switch Online. Why would or should Nintendo bring a new controller with the same exact functions? 🤨
@BloodNinja probably, but it's probably you as well. At least I hope so! 😉
Rumours floating around on Twitter about a Metroid Prime re-release, but not in a trilogy pack. Sounds about right for Nintendo =0p
'Please understand, we're doing this for the fans... each game will be released seperately for $60.00 / £50 each. We've kept motion controls and 30FPS, but introduced new Amiibo functionality'
@flightsaber I think the answer lies in your chat icon: Geno!
@sikthvash I actually wouldn't mind that, as the only Prime game I really enjoyed was the first one. The rest were just copy-paste asset swaps of the first, in terms of structure. They all felt too much alike.
A new Monolith game
Kuru Kuru Kururin
Namco Arcade Museum 2
Zone of the Enders 2 (yeah random I know)
and heck whatever. I'm getting Monkey Ball soon, so I'll let others hopefully get what they want
(I gave up hoping for Vanquish lol)
On a more serious note, hoping for a few stealth launches 'Directly' after the broadcast, including an expansion to the online library of classic games. Would love GBA to drop in there!
Hoping for that 'PEGI 18' moment at the begining too, so we might get Bayonetta 3 news!
@BloodNinja Aye, a lot of people prefer the 1st over the rest. There are moments in the others that shine, but some areas drag and feel a bit like cut & paste filler.
Smash DLC, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC that ties in with Tour, Indie reel, Pushmo/Crashmo Switch Ed./Xenoblade Chronicles X port/preview of Nintendo Kart (Super Smash Kart)
A new mario kart game or at least some new tracks for mario kart 8 deluxe would be great but that won't happen , the rumoured resident evil switch exclusive making an appearance would make watching the direct worth it for me because I'm a big fan of the resident evil franchise
@sikthvash I still laughed at your "please understand" comment. I love how painfully out of touch Nintendo can be, sometimes.
Give me the Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre Remaster that appeared in the Nvidia leak and I'll be satisfied for life.
The other dream release for me is a Morrowind/Oblivion Combo Pack. Those games should be on current gen!
None of these predictions interest me tbh. Except for indies. Love me some indies but will there be many?
This is probably gonna be the Metroid Dread promotional Direct. That game always looks interesting and is kinda fun to watch, but ultimately I know I'm not going to buy it.
A get the distinct feeling some of the staff are tired of Smash.
Anyway, I would rather go in predicting or expecting nothing. It's good to avoid disappointments, and make good surprises that much better.
Super Mario Bros 2 remake with 4 players
Xenoblade Chronicles 3
New Donkey Kong game
Astral Chain II
Capcoms Alien Vs Predator
Street Fighter 4 Arcade edition
Split Second Racing
Red Dead Revolver
Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Mario Kart 9
Sin and Punishment 1 & 2
Metal Gear Solid 1-5
Starfox 64 remastered
@ggnorekthx Being able to play those games on modern consoles would be pretty sweet!
@BrazillianCara what gave it away?
@ggnorekthx Microsoft owns Bethesda now so there's virtually no possibility of seeing any elder Scrolls or fallout titles on switch (except that blades online one)
Edit* & Skyrim didn't realise that one was on switch
Zelda Ocarina of Time HD...
What Kate said.
@HamatoYoshi I get switch not getting the new cod's but modern warfare 1 & 2 remastered could surely run on switch so I don't know why they skipped Nintendo's console when they released them
@TheFrenchiestFry we laugh at Triangle Strategy but at this point why not? It would be weird to think it as something else.
The obvious ones are all out there(n64 on nso, smash etc), so I'll make some more unlikely ones:
-Splatoon 3 new gameplay
-New DKC game by a different developer(or maybe even retro)
-An update to a game we weren't expecting to get one. MK8 could get extra content to hold over until 9.
-EARTHBOUND REMAKE I'M OUT
What I want to see and believe is reasonable:
Final Smash character is someone fun and bright and not anime. New Pikmin news. Bayonetta 3 update. Ever Oasis 2. BotW 2 update/name. Silksong. Indie's galore!
What I would love to see but probably ain't happening:
Sin & Punishment 3. Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door remastered. Mario Sunshine 2. Chibi Robo remastered collection. F-Zero...even a remaster at this point. Dillon getting a fully fledged adventure/3D platformer - tower defence hybrid title.
What we'll probably get that I won't personally be excited for:
An new anime character in Smash. More/new Xenoblade. More Monster Hunter. More Metroid Dread news (I've already bought it I don't need more details)
I’m calling it, a Virtual Boy controller and VB NSO games. C’mon Ninty, it’s time to get weird again.
@TheFrenchiestFry "Project Triangle Strategy being re-revealed with the totally revolutionary new name of "Triangle Strategy""
100% sure they won't. The name will be changed to something pivotal to the plot. So my prediction is "Love Triangle Strategy" 😝
Hold up…. aint you that weirdo from twitter who was like "ooh horny people are bad" or somethin? 🤣
(yeah I remember an account named TheFrenchiestFry with a Joker Persona 5 pfp saying that and also about how George Floyd was a pornstar….very very odd…. 😐)
@OorWullie Good call! I’d even take Galaxy 2. 😊
Kirby please I’m begging you Nintendo!
@BloodNinja oh I absolutely agree on your Metroid Prime comment. Prime 2 and 3 are what worry me for Prime 4 since it's that team developing it.
Prime 1 is a timeless masterpiece.
@Finntendo64 This looks set to be a very good Direct if you're a fan of Kirby.
I just want to see MONOLITH SOFT (sorry for the caps, please no ban)
Still hoping for Fallout 3 and/or New Vegas…. Final Fantasy XIII. And Star Fox!
@FoxMcCloud even if it's just a port of Zero, I'd e happy. Switch needs Star Fox.
@OorWullie Also, they need a big game announced for February or March. In 2021, it was Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. In 2020, it was Animal Crossing.
@ObeseChihuahua2 It’s on the 3ds
Look we are dealing with Nintendo here so expect a dull casual game taking up 5 mins of the direct followed by 2 seconds of something we’re really excited for and then back to 5 mins of something really dull.
@nocdaes Yesss! As a Fox, i want to do a barrel roll right now!
I have no expectations and a very full docket for the rest of the year, especially since I'm likely buying a new laptop soon. But I love some of these predictions. I would drop everything else for ARMS 2 or Splatoon 3.
@Tandy255 Feb or Mar is perfect for Kirby.
An all new Mario, 2D or 3D, is less likely in that window, but 3D World did happen (albeit a port with additional content).
That is all
N64 Mini Classic.
But in these times scalpers would buy them all and sell them for triple the price on ebay.
@nocdaes I edited my original post, but of course AC was the game for March 2020.
Kirby would be great! Something large enough to carry people into E3, but nothing earth shattering like Prime 4.
Pikmin 4 would be nice, but probably isn’t ready.
Edit: Looks like NL is reporting that a game did leak for Spring 2022.
I wish Persona 5.
@NotGeno Wait, it is? Wasn't the 3DS discontinued almost a year ago?
NES Remix 1 & 2. SNES Remix? Bring them to NSO.
@NotGeno @ObeseChihuahua2 Good call! I forgot they ported Woolly World to 3DS (just weeks before the Switch launch).
Like Kate said, it'd take Waluigi to get me playing Smash again.
AND my backlog is crushing me as it is, so I hope there are not too many must-own games announced.
Has everyone given up on a Zelda 35th Anniv. Collection?
And it sure would be nice to see the Metroid Prime Collection announced, but with Dread coming so soon, the timing seems off.
Dying Light release date and preorders opening at retail.
Bayonetta 3 as the "one more thing".
Anything else is gravy and/or unimportant.
Please no more Smash. Hope that portion doesn’t take up a chunk of time. Mario Odyssey 2 would be cool to see.
@Tandy255 I would get Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World, but I have a 2DS, so I'd have to get the NFC adapter too, which I don't really want to do.
Rare Replay Switch and Mother 3? Please don’t get our hopes up!
No predictions on new game announcements? I think we'll see one or two here (and in fact one seems to have been spoiled). Makes your predictions pretty unexciting.
Viva Pinata... There's a game I really forget about but really want another entry for
1) The best thing about a final Smash Ultimate DLC reveal is that we finally won't have to see a quarter of future Directs taken up by those segments.
2) I'd love more genuine ACNH content, even a full-on, paid expansion that increases the size of your island, allows more villagers, and introduces more beloved characters like Brewster and Kapp'n. I'm tempering my expectations though, as with everything else on this list.
3) Still holding out SLIGHT hope for a Zelda 35th Anniversary compilation and/or a Super Mario Galaxy 2 remaster announcement.
4) While I'm generally sick of Wii U ports, I honestly would make an exception for the game I played more than any other on the system: Xenoblade Chronicles X.
5) Some of my personal Wish List for announcements we likely won't see:
A) Any JRPG IP by Sega
B) A TimeSplitters reveal by THQ Nordic
C) Mario Kart 9
I second Gavin's notion that Rare Replay should be on Switch. Actually I third it, because Kate seconded it.
Expect Advance Wars to be a surprise...maybe even runaway...hit this winter. Not because of the campaigns (which are very good having played the originals), but because of the MULTIPLAYER, and if this thing comes with a Map Editor, watch out. I played an under-the-radar...and poorly reviewed because nobody actually tried its INSANE multiplayer...game called Daisenryaku VII: Modern Military Tactics Exceed for the PS2, and we played HUNDREDS of hours, maybe more. It was as addictive as chocolate-chip crack, metaphorically speaking. In fact, some of us STILL come back to it.
While Daisenryaku's real life nations and hundreds (between 400 and 1500+ depending on which iteration you're playing) of real air, land, and naval units which interact with realistic algorithms admittedly run rings around Advance Wars' rock/paper/scissors approach to mechanics where units of the same type are always equal (a squad of M2 Abrams will wipe the floor with old T-72s, and units like Patriots, SP-300s, and AEGIS-equipped ships like the Ticonderoga-class can help keep the skies clear for your own air and ground units to move safely), even having an entry-level tactical offering like Advance Wars could easily create that same "itch" for countless players for more of the same, and with more depth and variety.
Oh yeah, and Daisenryaku games come with fully-fledged Map Editors (the PC iterations even allow you to tweak the rules down to the last detail, up to 8 players in any combination of teams, human vs. AI, or every player for themselves). Two words: Endless replayability.
Of course we'll see; folks have to be willing to give something new and different from the IPs/genres they're used to buying a chance first, and that's always the biggest hurdle. I hope they do, though; not only do I think they'll love it, but variety is healthy for the entire hobby.
I just want standalone games and no DLC announcements beyond the obvious Smash reveal.
And I don’t want DLC for WarioWare (it currently stands at Version 1.0 and I pray it stays that way), but I hope it will follow with a new instalment without such a long gap this time. WarioWare is just screaming for a new motion-controlled experience. Hell, I’d be thrilled with a barebones port of Smooth Moves if we can’t have that.
@TheWingedAvenger I would fourth it, of course...but the true icing on the cake would be a surprise addition of GoldenEye 007. C'mon, how hard can it be to iron out the licensing issues for the granddaddy of console FPSes?
No predictions for StarFox then?!
I totally dig the idea of extra content for Ring Fit tho’. And being wildly random I’d vote for a something Microsoft related as well. It is now ‘Fall’ after all
To be perfectly honest, I'm happy as a clam with the Switch's release schedule through January, so I didn't even need a Direct. Still, it'll be nice to close the year with an actually satisfying presentation.
"C'mon, how hard can it be to iron out the licensing issues for the granddaddy of console FPSes?"
Bring GBA and N64 games. I must say that i wasn't big fun of N64, i think it was a failure compared to Playstation 32
First party predictions:
> New info/trailers for Metroid Dread, Mario Party Superstars, Pokemon Gen 4 remakes + Legends Arceus, SMTV, Advanced Wars Reboot Camp
> Kirby Discovery announcement (leaked)
> Bayonetta 3 new trailer (leaked)
> Xenonblade Chronicles 3 announcement
> Super Smash Bros Ultimate final DLC character
> Animal Crossing New Horizons update (a substantial one)
> New platforms for NSO: GB/GBC in 2021, N64 in 2022
@westman98 I know; that's been apparent for some time. Licensing is one of the reasons why the hobby can't have (or in many cases, keep) nice things.
That mention of a USS Enterprise in Nuts n Bolts is intriguing. I must know more!
I would do unspeakable things for a new Punch-Out
The Smash Bros. final character will be revealed like this:
They will show character after character each trying to grab the final envelope, and it results in a brawl/melee/WiiU or whatever. Then (insert character) sneaks up and grabs it. The rest of the characters will be Mii skins.
I want pokemon legends arceus and botw's champions in smash, I think they would be a good fit as botw kickstarted the switch into it's current success, and 2 we need zelda characters that aren't link!
The GTA trilogy coming to Switch.
@forumposter21 ooo that sounds like it would be fun to watch!
For some reason I think the new controller will be like the zapper or link's crossbow training gun.
Disney Afternoon Collection
I just came here to look at people arguing over speculation
Gosh the acting in the Big Brain Academy video was so bad. As rich as Nintendo is, you think they could use Union Actors.
Zelda collection, with every game in the franchise including the cdi games, all remade,run at 4K 60fps. Priced at 15$.
Also Sony has made a deal with Nintendo to port Spider-Man to the switch.My uncle who works at Nintendo said so.
I really hope Disco Elysium is shadow dropped. I really want to play it.
Disney Saturday collection please. Yes to GBA on NSO. But people will always moan about that whatever gets added. Gamecube never will people. Maybe the next console
oh man i cant wait
@Ralizah I fully expect the presentation to highlight Nintendo's previously unannounced host of Marvel and Star Wars games plus Arceus. Because there are no other franchises in gaming except for CoD and Pokemon.
C'mon House of the dead remake!
Yes, I know, Nintendo said no more Zelda 35th anniversary stuff this year. But I'm still hoping for WW and TP HD. A holiday release would be perfect imo.
"Disney Afternoon Collection"
Yes! It's on PS and XBOX, why not on the Switch?
The CDi games? LOL Nintendo doesn't know what you're talking about
I don't think we should count out Nintendo finally releasing a Switch cartridge that tastes good so you can eat it after you finish the game
I'm still waiting for Genshin Impact on Switch. I'm worried they changed their mind without telling anyone. But if they announced and released it within the next week, it would arrive just in time for version 2.3! It would give new players a free 5-star in the form of Aloy to get started with. I'm running out of space on my phone, so I really hope it comes to Switch soon.
Aside from Genshin, I'd really like to see news on BotW2, Splatoon 3, and ARMS 2. And Game Boy on NSO.
I hope everybody learned how to read this time. Focused on games releasing this winter!!!
