I put countless hours into Xenoblade 2 and I will admit Pyra was a tad odd. Considering she is a main character's sword, I think it was strange to not use the Driver and Blade mechanics for fighting, would have been a good way of getting past the "Anime Swordfighter" complaint.

I'd give the direct a 7/10 or even an 8/10. Not the best, not the worst.

I love XC2. I wish it was Rex, but hey I'm super stoked for them. Seems a lot of people haven't played this amazing game.

i am disappointed… no hate on splatoon because i've loved that series since the wii u original, but it does grind my gears how the switch now has two brand new splatoon titles while mario kart just has one port.

i hope i never hear anyone say "nintendo don't need to make mario kart 9 because there's already a mario kart on the switch!"

splatoon 3 proves there is no problem with having two entries in the same online focused series on the same console, people need to stop inventing arbitrary rules to excuse nintendo being lazy.

I say it didn't. Virtually nothing about that direct exicted me in any way.
Contrast with E3s in the past where there was always a few things for me.

This direct may please those who will lap-up any crumbs Nintendo sprinkles in their direction.

I'm a bit disappointed.. I hoped they would have done more for zelda 35th..
Just one zelda? I was expecting at least a collection. Especially the older titles like oot and mm. I okay with skyward sword because I haven't played that one yet but I would have also liked to see oot and mm.

So I looked it up: Famicom Detective Club did in fact start on the Famicom in 1988, while the prequel came out on 1989. Additionally, there was a third game on the Satellaview in 1997. The two games we're getting are remakes of the original and the prequel on the Famicom.

Give Xenoblade fans a little break. We wanted this for a long time! All I see are people b****ing that's it's another Sword fighter and/or it's not the character they wanted. jesus christ….

Pyra’s design is very perverted. Not afan of her inclusion in a E10 game.

You guys were quick to change the title from 'Now That's how you do a Direct', to 'Was it Good Enough?' When people did not agree.

So many multiplayer games and rereleases and barely anything else. I was pretty disappointed by this direct, not gonna lie. Especially given how long we waited for it. All they announce for 1st party titles is a rerelease, one sports game and a pvp multiplayer game…. Come on nintendo, you have tons of first party IPs to choose from, you've got nothing? seriously?

Don't get me wrong I'm glad to play skyward sword again and I'm (VERY) excited for MH Rise but it would have been nice to see some new, good Nintendo titles sprinkled in too.
