There has been talk about a Nintendo Direct presentation for several months. The last one we had was on September 4, 2019. Many expected one in January and also February. Now, here we are almost at the end of March with a surprise drop of a Nintendo Direct Mini with nearly 29 minutes of Nintendo Switch games coming this year (that is if the COVID-19 virus doesn’t delay anything).
While we keep waiting on the next Nintendo Direct, we got another Indie World Showcase this morning, where Nintendo showed off over 20 games, many of which are timed console-exclusives, coming to Nintendo Switch in 2020. Click here for the full list and the entire showcase video.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is really stretching the classic series. On February 20, Nintendo gave us a nearly 30 minute Nintendo Direct solely focused on the upcoming game, which launches on March 20. We have the video and all the details right here!
On February 19, 2020, we will get two more SNES games and two more NES games. This will be the first time these SNES games have been released in the United States. These games bring the total to 26 SNES games 52 NES games for a grand total of 78 classic games available on the Nintendo Switch Online Service.
Early this morning, January 16, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Smash Bros. series, shared another update on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch. We learned what the last DLC character would be in the Fighter Pack 1, he showed us the next round of Mii costumes, we saw the next amiibo, and we found out there will be six characters coming in Fighter Pack 2.
Earlier today, via Masahiro Sakurai’s and NintendoVS Twitter, it was announced that there will be a 35 minute video livestream featuring an in-depth look at an upcoming DLC fighter. Nintendo then followed up with an official press release. This will be the final DLC character to be released under the first Smash Fighters Pass.
To celebrate the new year, Nintendo has dropped the price on a TON of games. (Even though the image says up to 30% off, it’s actually up to 75% off!)
Today’s Pokémon Direct brought news about Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX and a two-part Expansion Pass for Pokémon Sword and Shield!
