Monster Hunter, Ori, and More Announced in September 2020 Partner Showcase

In what seems like it will be a monthly showcase, Nintendo was back this morning with another Direct Mini, showing off several games from third-party developers.

A large chunk of the time was spent on Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2, as they even had an additional Direct after this one to focus even more on these two games.

There was also a big surprise, as Ori and the Will of the Wisps was previously said not to be coming to Nintendo Switch, but we saw today that it will be arriving in December.

Here is the run-down of what they showed, as well as the full video presentation.
