+jgkspsx Posted February 10, 2022 Share Posted February 10, 2022 Here is today's whole Nintendo Direct. Man, are these companies all out of ideas or what? It's all remakes, sequels, and spinoffs. Original games: Triangle Strategy (Octopath Traveler spinoff), Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Disney Speedstorm (Mario Kart clone), SD Gundam Battle Alliance (Xenoblade clone?) Sequels: Splatoon 3, Fire Emblem Warriors 2: Three Hopes, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Nintendo Switch Sports, Mario Strikers Returns, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival, Two Point Campus Ports/compilations: No Man's Sky, Portal 1 & 2, Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, MLB The Show 22, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles, Lego Brawls, Zombie Army 4: Dead War Remakes/remasters: Chrono Cross, Front Mission 1st, Live-a-Live, Klonoa 1 & 2, Advance Wars 1+2, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon DLC: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass (48 remastered classic courses), Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course Free updates: Metroid Dread Dread Mode (1 hit kills), Rookie Mode (health boost) Switch Online releases: Earthbound Beginnings, Earthbound Live-A-Live is head and shoulders the most exciting thing to me here. It's gonna be new to most people and it is going to knock people's socks off. (It will also make Octopath Traveler look even less inspired by comparison...) Front Mission 1 remake looks as good as Live a Live though a lot more people have played that series, and it's less my thing. Splatoon 3 looks fantastic, but that's no surprise. I never got into Splatoon 2 as much as I wanted to, but this looks like a lot more fun single player as well as multiplayer. Fire Emblem Warriors 2 looks good if you need even more Dynasty Warriors in your life. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 looks a lot more like the first one and a lot more likeable than whatever the heck Everquest wannabe the second game was. I don't know that I have time to play another one of these, but it looks really beautiful. I'm happy that Nintendo finally deigned to let people play Mother again (but still no Mother 3). Wii Sports 4 looks great, and is long overdue. But there really wasn't anything that seems to offer more than just an incremental iteration except Kirby, and, man, Kirby just ain't what he used to be. I have a feeling No Man's Sky is gonna run like crap, but I would like to catch up with @neogeo1982 at some point... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
