Nintendo Direct - Thoughts

I got round to watching the Nintendo Direct that came out a week or so. Here are my thoughts:

Mario & Luigi

I loved Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and the other games have been alright but not amazing. I’ll keep an eye on this one and stay hopeful

Nintendo World Championships: New Edition

I don’t think this is for me at all. It does look like it’d be a lot of fun for the people it’s aimed at though!

Fairy Tale 2

Nah.. I mean, it’s the kind of thing I might get when I really fancy playing a JRPG so possibly maybe, one day?


This doesn’t seem like anything special to me? 🤷‍♀️

Nintendo Switch Sports Basketball

OK, Nintendo Switch Sports always makes for a fun evening with people, but I’m still not gonna buy it


Didn’t give an awful lot away but it got my attention. I will keep an eye out for more info on this one

Disney Illusion Island

Not for me

Hello Kitty Island Adventure

Very cute. I think Animal Crossing is enough of this business for me, though

Among Us

Enjoyed watching streams of Among Us during lockdown and that’s enough for me


Haha here’s our obligatory farming game! The Switch needs more of these

Donkey Kong Country Returns HD

I think we rented the original Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo back in the day and it was good but too hard for me. I never played the sequel though, so I should maybe grab this one some time and give it a go.

Dragon Quest III (and also I & II)

I really like the Octopath Traveler-style art. I loved the absolute heck out of Dragon Quest IX, and enjoyed what I played of XI. Might have to try these some time. Also, I now want a slime plushie like what that guy has

Funko Fusion

What exactly even is this?

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD

I’m still Luigis Mansion’d out from playing the third one a year or two ago.

The New Denpa Men

F2P = instant no

Metal Slug Attack Reloaded

Doesn’t appeal to me at all

Darkest Dungeon II

Ohhh, I would be so crap at this! But I’d probably still have fun?

Phantom Brave: the Lost Hero

I’ve never played a Phantom Brave game (nearest I’ve come to it is being baffled by Disgaea, maybe?) It might be interesting to try out

Marvel vs Capcom Fighting Collection


Super Mario Party Jamboree

I don’t think I get to play with other people enough to justify this. I know they mentioned online play but this will just be a small part, right?

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom

Flipping heck. This looks interesting. I love the cute graphics, and I’m really intrigued that they’re taking the weird creativity from Tears of the Kingdom and putting it I here. I am very interested in this.

Just Dance

Not for me

Lego Horizon Adventure

Lego games never manage to hold my attention. I love that they exist though


I wasn’t interested in this at all when I saw it on Steam, but on Switch… hmm, it might be alright

Tales of the Shire

I want this and I can’t give you a good reason why, I just want it

Ace Attorney Investigations Collection

I do want to play an Ace Attorney game again some time soon, but I’d grab one of the older ones first. Maybe one day.

The Hundred Line

This looks quite interesting - a bit Persona? I can’t imagine I would have the attention span to play through it (just like Persona) but hey, maybe one day.

Romancing Saga 2


Metroid Prime 4

I should definitely give this a shot. Only Metroid Prime I played was the first one, on the GameCube. I liked it but I haven’t played any first person games at the time, and, honestly, I was crap at the shooting and at the exploring. Time to give Metroid Prime another go.
