Update: strangely I forgot to mention the other game I am most hyped for The Outer Wilds – great game!
Overall a solid Direct, but I was hoping for a little more – how about you? Mark

Overall I was happy with this Direct. Especially since we haven't had one in a while. Skyward Sword HD for me. It would have been nicer to have a compilation of Zelda games like they did with Mario. Ah well beggar's can't be choosers. Excellent video lads.

Nintendo: Come play low-res versions of games on switch in 2021 that came out years ago.

I have unfortunately missed Baldo, waiting so long for the game. But I hope it comes out this year, can't wait to play it.

Not seeing anything from the big three games people are waiting for obviously sucks, but my overall impression of the direct would have been better if it wasn’t so bloated with e-shop filler. Could have easily cut 20-25 minutes from it and offered up a much tighter showcase.

Triangle Strategy is the game I’m most interested in. Love that art style.

Until Metroid Prime Trilogy gets announced I’ll always be a bit disappointed

Ninja gaiden trilogy is the best game news in years for me. Best action titles together with the Devil may cry series!

Is literally no one making new triple A switch games. I’ve literally counted less than 10 mainline games that released in the last 2 years that haven’t been remakes or ports. Like thank goodness the Witcher and breath of the wild both take months to play, otherwise I’d sorely regret getting a switch

I'm meh on most of that. However, I am really excited about Mario Golf, I've been waiting years for a motion control golf game on the Switch. I think it is unfortunate they didn't get it out last year though that was a pretty big missed opportunity.

Not too many things that I'm looking forward too from this one- very mature and action game focused I feel. I'm excited for fall guys and I personally just see it as Nintendo starting directs again. It's a bonus that we get them and a futile excercise in getting expectations up, but that's just my two cents.

Metroid Trilogy port. I think it was a good opportunity to buy time for metroid prime 4

I was hoping for silksong & a lot more zelda, they didn't even acknowledge the 35th anniversary.
Excited for octo tactics though.

I was pretty disappointed to be honest. I wanted something about Silksong as well.

I'm probably the only one hyped over Mario Golf. Since 2K took over The Golf Club series. It's gotten, well… Pants. Mario Golf has always been incredibly solid in its mechanics. So yeah, take my money!!!!

not gonna lie, I was SUPER disappointed by the Splatoon 3 reveal, not because of Splatoon 3, but because I thought it would be Odyssey 2.

Tbh, after the 12 months we had, you cant expect Nintendo to have magically ran as normal. It was a "covid standard" of releases, news from them

Yeah…it was definitely not the best Direct, so I totally agree. Honestly, I loved the 1st party games, and as a matter of fact, I prefer 3rd party over Nintendo 1st party games. The 1st party offerings were good in the Direct (minus Splatoon 3), but it needed at least 2 big AAA 3rd party games, whether it was Resident Evil Revelations 3, Madden, or whatever Saber Interactive or Virtous is working on. I'm guessing those games are in the 2nd half, so maybe they are E3 Direct announcements.

I thinl the Zelda anouncement was fine, just to hear that something is happening I kidna feel was good enough, although since I haven't gotten around to the first one yet I more patient by others.
The thing with mario golf is that the speed golf mode seems fun, but if that is the only goofy thing in this game I would prefer that as a game in a mini game-collection rather than something in a 60$ golf game.

For Me All The Zelda Games Are Great Games Also Zelda Games On The GameBoy/Color/Advance/DS And 3DS GameBoy Are All Great Games. 😃

My picks were similar to yours – Golf and Project Triangle look great, the rest I can take it or leave it. I never played Skyward Sword the first time around due to the off-putting control scheme and having watched other channels lampooning the gameplay for being so handhold-y. Who loves a paint-by-numbers Zelda game after we've seen what BoW brought us. I appreciate you guys' candor with reviews and sales – some of the hype on other channels can become pretty heavy-handed if you catch my drift. One of the few channels I watch on a weekly basis. Hope you're both doing well!

Great stuff guys. I need Silksong too. I wish there was more about Wolf Among Us 2. And even Spelunky 1 & 2 game footage on switch.

I think the reason people were so disappointed with this direct is that they started with the smash reveal so everyone was expecting a lot

Clicked for Silksong.
Still waiting for news on Eastward. Metroid Prime 4 would've been great news. Metroid Prime Trilogy on Switch as well.

Can we just concentrate on the tiny miracle switch. Whoever keeps reiterating there will be a ro switch, no there will not be one. The system is 4 years old. Really sick of non existent speculation.

I would appreciate some Metroid news. It has been 14, nearly fifteen years since the last proper game, and about 3 years since Prime four's announcement. I understand they scrapped and restarted production, but jesus fuck, any news, even just showing Samus's model would be enough for me. I'm happy they are doing their best to make the game brilliant as possible, but I want some frickin news.

It was ok, I guess. It was just average like a "C-C+" kinda feeling.
