March 2018 Nintendo Direct Recap

smash bros.

Blogging live to you and yours! It’s your boy TWOTALL4UFOOL. Nintendo out of NOWHERE just did another Nintendo Direct this past Thursday. I didn’t even get a chance to do a prediction blog for it. I mean I could’ve, but it would’ve just been pushing it. I figured I would sit back, relax, be surprised and then share with you guys my thoughts! A few things are for certain after watching it. They announced perhaps the game that will help sell even MORE Switch’s than it did in its first year. And the Nintendo 3DS isn’t going anywhere. In case you missed the Nintendo Direct check it out by clicking here. Anyway let’s get into what was announced.

First for the Nintendo 3DS:

WarioWare Gold (Aug. 3rd)

Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers (May 24th)

Mario & Luigi: Bower’s Inside Story & Bowser Jr.’s Journey (2019)

Detective Pickachu (Mar. 23rd)

Luigi’s Mansion (2018)

Ok so if you remember my Nintendo E3 Rumors post WarioWare and Luigi’s Mansion were two of the games on that list. But they won’t be on the Switch. Looks like they are holding out on Mario Is Missing Part 4 for another time. And WarioWare on the Switch sounded too good to be true on the Switch. Yeah the Nintendo 3DS isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And with the new Mario & Luigi game coming out in 2019 it looks like it’s here to stay for a bit while longer. I think they’ll start re-releasing more GameCube games on the Nintendo 3DS. Hopefully we see games like Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime, and other great GameCube games make it to the Nintendo 3DS. Hopefully we see more later this year for the 3DS than what was announced at this Nintendo Direct.

The games announced for the Switch is what really stole the show. Take a look at the list below:

Kirby Star Allies (Mar. 16th)

Okami HD (Summer 2018)

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido (Jun. 8th)

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes (2018)

Dark Souls: Remastered (May. 25th)

Mario Tennis Aces (Jun. 22nd)

Octopath Traveler (Jul. 13th)

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker (Jul. 13th)

Undertale (Announced)

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (Jul. 10th)

Little Nightmares: Complete Edition (May 18th)

South Park: The Fractured But Whole (Apr. 24th)

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (May. 18th)

Splatoon 2 (Ver. 3.0 + Octo Expansion) (Summer 2018)

Super Smash Bros. For Switch (2018)

WOW! That’s all I gotta say. Now some will make the argument that there are too many ports in this roster games. And yes there probably are. But like I’ve said before the average consumer can only afford one major console per household. So for those consumers that have chosen the Nintendo Switch and haven’t played any of the ports coming to the system then that’s still a demographic of people who haven’t played these games yet. As for the Nintendo first party titles again like I’ve said before NOT EVERYONE HAD A Wii U! It was their 2nd worse home console ever if you want to say it sold more units than the Virtual Boy. The Switch has already outsold it in its first year. Then some people will make the argument just buy a Wii U. It may be a past gen console but it’s still pretty pricey for a past gen console if you do a search for it. One of the reasons why I never got one.

As for the games that interest me on this list is Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition. I definitely want to give that game a try. I’m thinking about also getting into the Splatoon 2 fun. But the main game I’m interested in. Super Smash Bros. For Switch. Now the big question is ‘Is it a port or a new game?’. That’s the question everyone is asking right now. Me personally I don’t care! I never had a Wii U. I would love to play the game on a console again. I have the game on my 3DS but it ain’t the same as playing it on a console. So now that the game has been announced I predict it will come out in September. The same month Nintendo’s paid online service goes live. What better way to launch your service than with a new Super Smash Bros. game. A friend told me that GameStop is already taking pre-orders for the game. This game is probably going to be the reason Nintendo sells more units than its first year. You know Nintendo had a plan and I think they are executing it very well. Besides having to wait almost 18 months for a paid online service and still no answer on Virtual Console.

So I feel overall that this was a great Nintendo Direct. Nintendo fans and video game fans a like have a lot to be excited about. What were your thoughts on the Nintendo Direct?
