Honestly, I watched the Japanese video with subtitles (I think it was the European version) and Sakurai starting with the multiplayer mode was actually a smart move, since I've heard quite a lot of people say they're now excited about the game (including myself). That way, he captured everyone's attention pretty well, and I finally understood how the battles worked (with the whole angel mechanic). I also love how there's also free-for-alls.
Other than that and Last Story coming to the Americas, Fire Emblem 13 was looking nice, with voice acting (nothing new, but it's good to see it return) and nice character art. Also, being able to (somehow, I forget how exactly) obtain old characters is a pretty neat idea. My first thought was just making an OP team with the best character from past games, but then I though pretty much what YL said. Anything else was either "eh..." or "meh..."
New Super Mario Bros. Wii 2 has been confirmed, with raccoon suits. It's 3DS.
Super Mario Bros. Wii 2... for 3DS?
Nobody mentioned the Pokémon stuff! I thought it was cool. They're releasing an app that lets you locate Pokémon using the AR viewer, catch them, and send them to BW2. And Pokédex 3D Pro, which contains all the pre-Unova Pokémon now. There was a trailer for BW2 with some kind of weird battle against a giant robot Tyranitar? I'm not sure what was happening there.
Nah, it's just called New Super Mario Bros. 2. If we are in fact getting one on Wii U as well, does that mean two 2D Mario games in one year?
That'd be weird.
Also there was nothing about a Kirby 20th Anniversary compilation, but they did say there'd be a 20th Anniversary campaign. This may include a compilation, but it's more likely to be a range of Kirby events throughout the year.

nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
