Well, I thought this was a pretty good Direct, even though it seemed to focus on games we already knew about. And I don't just mean leaks, but previously announced games. (Although speaking of leaks, have those been getting even worse lately?)
Anyway, I won't go through the whole thing, but I'll just talk about a few points.
Well, there really is an SNK character in Smash! I don't intend to buy Smash Ultimate just for Terry Bogard, but I love that he's in there, and I look forward to the inevitable amiibo. Also, the reveal trailer was cool.
The funny thing is, I randomly started playing SNK Heroines again last week. The next day, the Japanese trailer for the Switch version of Samurai Shodown was released. A couple of days later, the rumor of an SNK character in Smash started circulating, and now it's official. In a strange way, I almost feel responsible for all this.
Now, am I supposed talk about this in the SNK thread, or on the Smash Bros board???
- Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore
Looks like I'll get a second chance at this game. But will the NA version be censored like it was on the Wii U?
Oh, and Genki Yokota's response in that interview from a couple of months ago is even funnier now...
RPG Site: One last thing... are you aware of the sort of immense fan fever, the demand, for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to come to Switch?
Yokota: Ahhh. [laughs] Well, thank you for the comment - I will go to Atlus, and perhaps we can talk about that!
- Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
Saved the best for last. I enjoyed the original Xenoblade when I first played it, but once I finished it, I never went back. However, after falling in love with XBC2, I've kinda wanted to revisit it. Aside from the graphical overhaul, it looks like it includes cut content. The area shown at the end of the teaser is in the data for the original game, but isn't accessible in normal gameplay. I wonder what other changes and enhancements it will have...
Interesting announcement from the Japanese Direct, Remakes of the Famicom Tantei (Detective) Club games for the Switch, developed by MAGES with cooperation from the original Nintendo staff, which I suppose includes Sakomato who appears in the reveal trailer. No info about a western release happening though.
Pretty good direct, all in all. - Local multiplayer mode for LM3 looks fun. - Find it crazy that Toby Fox has met Sakurai and has now worked with Game Freak. - BK in Smash looks like a great character - Didn't even think Little Town Story would even come out so soon. - Deadly Premonition 2 is Switch exclusive - Jedi Knight on Switch! - SNES games on Switch and the SNES Switch controller (thought the controller would be happen but thought it would actually be able to attach to the rail). Anyone who own the NES ones is probably regretting wasting their money when this has more buttons and would also be compatible with NES games. - SMT:#FE didn't think it would warrant a Switch release, saleswise, though the game looks like it might be the censored western version which isn't going to help. - Hearing those opening music notes and seeing that giant waterfall again was a great opener for that XC:DE trailer, hopefully the game has some sort of character switching/co-op in battle and cut location content (like Giant's Shoulder) restored. It's incredible how far the XC series has come after all these years, going from nearly not getting a NA release, to Shulk being in Smash, the release of XCX and XC2/Torna, good to see more people will be able to a better version of XC or without having to own a Wii/Wii U or N3DS.
