Nintendo Direct: Okami HD, South Park:FBW, Crash Bandicoot......SMASH BROS. w/ Splatoon
Video

No info on Smash 4 or new Smash 5, but it did list 2018 so that makes me think port, but that is fine by me if they add characters. Looks like Inklings and BotW Link included.


SMASH!!

Also, Tennis Aces looks amazing, seems to be a deep system for play. Huge Splatoon DLC coming, with a price. Undertale, and dates on a bunch of games.

Link incoming.


Possibly more than one. They show Link in his Breath of the Wild attire, and I think BotW gives you plenty to work with to give a new Link moveset.

Also with Crash and Okami coming, maybe they can be in Smash Bros as well? There's almost no way this isn't a port, since new Smash Bros games tend to take forever when they're making them to come out.

Use the same engine and make a new game?

Switch is a portable Wii U at this point, where are the new games?

Will happily buy Smash again though.

Oh I expect it to be different in the same way that the 3DS and Wii U versions were except on steroids. No one is going to complain if we get 8 or so new characters, give us all the stages/modes from both versions, give us new stages and modes. Also clean up the menu, because I constantly got lost in that thing on the Wii U. If they did it that way, they could charge $100 for this game, and people would pay it.

The Wii U from a sales point was a complete disaster. I'd make 2018 the year of the port if I were running Nintendo, and then have Metroid, open world Pokemon, and a new Animal Crossing ready for 2019, and then sequels to Zelda, Mario, and Mario Kart ready by 2020. Plus it seems as if third parties are finally on board to give Nintendo the support they've been asking for. Really they could release 20 great games this year and make it stacked for the layman.

I mean Crash was just released on the PS4, Dark Souls was also rereleased on current consoles, Okami was released on the PS4.....

Kirby Star Allies is new, Tennis Aces is new, South Park is a new game - just a late release, Octopath Traveler is a new game and Treasure Tracker and Hyrule Warriors had a small WiiU audience, and the Splatoon DLC seems like a "Blood and Wine" level of DLC which is a good announcement.

The beginning of the trailer matched the original Splatoon 1 reveal.

I kind of felt it was Smash right away, just made too much sense after a generally mediocre Direct. That was super intentional.

Additionally, and to the point above about rereleases, Nintendo is getting this stuff out of the way now....with one major announcement in Smash to hold things over until E3. This has been there MO lately, Directs are meant to move the needle a little, keep people pumped, and to occasionally announce a big game. They do this so the press at big events is focused on the big games.

It works well from an excitement standpoint, but a lot of people think every Direct is going to have a major announcement.

I honestly think Nintendo is ahead of the game when it comes to interacting with their audience. Really E3 is overrated these days and Microsoft and Sony should start this as well. Wastes far less money.

Eh, I'm not so sure. It's just another way. Just look at that reaction. The habit for people is "Nintendo scheduling time to release a video means big life changing announcement for fans." They've been doing this for the last 2-3 years and people still think epic announcement for every release.

Reddit breakdown:

quote:

Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. (working title): The Super Smash Bros. series comes to Nintendo Switch in 2018. The teaser trailer featured recognizable faces like Mario, Link and the Inklings from the Splatoon series.

New Single-Player Expansion Coming to Splatoon 2: The first paid DLC is coming to Splatoon 2 this summer. Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion adds a hefty new single-player mode that lets players play as new character Agent 8, an Octoling (!) with lost memories. The new single-player campaign features 80 missions, as well as new stories that shed new light on beloved characters. Players that complete the Octo Expansion campaign will unlock the ability to play as Octolings in multiplayer battles. While Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion launches this summer, players can pre-purchase the DLC starting today in Nintendo eShop to immediately receive Octo-themed in-game gear to use in battle right away. (The full version of the game is required to use DLC.)

Major Splatoon 2 Update: In April, Splatoon 2 is getting a major free update (Version 3.0) that contains 100+ new pieces of gear, more stages rolling out throughout spring (Piranha Pit, Camp Triggerfish and Wahoo World) and a new rank (Rank X). Rank X is an extreme rank, even higher than S+.

Mario Tennis Aces: Unleash an arsenal of shots and strategies in all-out tennis battles with friends, family and fan-favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters. With up to four-player local (additional accessories may be required and are sold separately) and online* multiplayer, and a story mode that even includes creative boss battles, Mario Tennis Aces is one of the most robust Mario sports games yet. The intuitive and deep gameplay allows for exciting competitions in the living room or, really, anywhere using the power of Nintendo Switch. In Swing Mode, players can use their Joy-Con controllers like a tennis racket, swinging them to initiate the tennis swings in the game. Mario Tennis Aces launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on June 22.cMario Tennis Aces Pre-launch Online Tournament

Kirby Star Allies: Kirby is coming to Nintendo Switch for the first time next week! As players make their way through the robust adventure, they will reach dream palaces where fan-favorite legacy characters can become Kirby’s Dream Friends. Eventually, more Dream Friends will be added to the game through free updates. The first such update hits March 28 and adds classic characters Marx, Gooey and character set “Rick & Kine & Coo” to the game. Kirby Star Allies launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on March 16. A free demo for the game is currently available in Nintendo eShop.

Octopath Traveler: Producer Masashi Takahashi from SQUARE ENIX revealed new details about the upcoming RPG, including the final game name, Octopath Traveler, two more main characters (Tressa the Merchant and Alfyn the Apothecary) and the ability to equip multiple jobs per character for use in battle. Octopath Traveler launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on July 13. Octopath Traveler: Wayfarer’s Edition, a special edition bundle that includes a stylized pop-up book, a helpful cloth map, the Octopath Traveler: Sound Selections CD and a replica coin based on the in-game currency, launches the same day.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which originally launched for Wii U, is coming to Nintendo Switch. The new version includes new miniature courses based on various Kingdoms in the Super Mario Odyssey game. Also, anyone can play with a friend or family member by sharing a pair of Joy-Con controllers. While one player controls Captain Toad, the other can assist with things like turnip cover fire. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launches for Nintendo Switch on July 13. A Nintendo 3DS version of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which includes stereoscopic 3D visuals and touch-screen controls, also launches on July 13.

Crash Bandicoot Crashes Nintendo Switch: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which includes remastered versions of the first three Crash Bandicoot games, launches for Nintendo Switch on July 10.

Okami HD: The gorgeous and ethereal remake of classic action-adventure game Okami is coming to Nintendo Switch. In the Nintendo Switch version of the game, players can use the touch screen in Handheld Mode or the Joy-Con motion controls in TV or Tabletop Mode to control the Celestial Brush to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. Okami HD launches in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch this summer.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole: The South Park gang is back in an outrageously offensive superhero RPG adventure. And with Nintendo Switch, players can now drop into South Park anytime, anywhere. In addition to the main game, all of the game’s add-on content will be available for purchase. South Park: The Fractured But Whole launches for Nintendo Switch on April 24.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido: Originally announced for Nintendo 3DS at last year’s E3, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is also coming to Nintendo Switch! The action puzzle game finds players devouring conveyor-belt sushi, matching plates and then throwing them to defeat enemies. The basics are simple, but the gameplay is deep … and tasty! In the game’s multiplayer mode, players can even compete locally or online* against other players in intense matches. Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido launches for both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS on June 8.

DARK SOULS: REMASTERED: The remake of the genre-defining and beloved original DARK SOULS game launches for Nintendo Switch on May 25. On the same day, an amiibo figure based on Solaire of Astora will also be released. By tapping this amiibo, the popular “Praise the Sun” gesture can be used with reckless abandon from the start of the game. (The gesture can also be obtained through regular gameplay.) Players who want to take the game for a spin can participate in a “network test.” The free network test launches in Nintendo eShop, and will allow players to download and play a part of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED before it launches to try out the gameplay and unique online features. More details about the network test will be revealed soon.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes: When Travis Touchdown wanders into the game world, he goes on a rampage of epic proportions. The latest title in the cult classic No More Heroes series contains a total of seven game titles, including an action game, racing game and puzzle game. By using another Joy-Con controller, two players can team up for co-op multiplayer action. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch this year.

Little Nightmares: Complete Edition: From award-winning developer Tarsier Studios comes Little Nightmares, a charmingly horrific puzzle-platforming adventure. The Complete Edition contains the two haunting tales of Six and The Runaway Kid in one package. You can even tap the PAC-MAN amiibo figure (sold separately) to unlock the Pakku Mask when playing. Little Nightmares: Complete Edition launches on May 18.

UNDERTALE: The million-selling role-playing game in which nobody has to die is headed to Nintendo Switch. Launch details will arrive at a later date.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition: launches for Nintendo Switch on May 18.

I feel sorry for PS fans a bit considering that crash was an old Sony title.


But then again so was secret of mana for the SNES the remake business is a curious one.
