    I didn't really see a ton that I was very interested in. Seems like a bunch of ports and re-releases. Well that and more Pokemon content to be mad at them making instead of including all the pokemon.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 1 Definite Edition looks interesting if they add more content, and it isn't just a HD remaster. Though I won't play it anytime soon, just finished playing XC1 a month ago and think even 2020 is too soon to replay a 90+ hour rpg.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE Encore does look like something I'd plan on playing, never did get around to playing the original. Though it is on my list to play soon, so I guess I can put that on delay until Encore comes out.

      Sure, lots of ports, but I'd rather have the problem of too much to play instead of not enough (a la Wii U).

        I just can't be excited for anything Nintendo Online. Their online system is such a mess and so much worse than Xbox & Playstations. With Nintendo games I have 0 interest in anything I don't own a physical version of, cause I never really know what is going to happen with it if it works through their online system.

        Yeah and the Wii U feels like the forgotten red headed stepchild. Never even bothered to buy it and really don't remember much about it. So if they ported some more Wii U games to the switch I would be happy.

      The end of the Xenoblade trailer teases a location that was cut from the original game. Also, there's a major graphics overhaul too.

        Is it really? Maybe it's rose tinted glasses, but it doesn't look that much better than Dolphin emulation except for longer draw distances for foliage.

        In any case I'm rather annoyed that this game is going through its third port / re-release while Xenoblade X stays in Wii U obscurity.

        Edit: rose tinted glasses apparently working in overdrive. I can't believe I didn't notice how drastically different that character model looked.

    Nintendo are truly the masters of the content trickle feed. I find myself thankful for finally getting a SNES library, besides having had SNES emulators around for many, many years. There's just something to a nice presentation.

    I basically just watch these hoping for Pikmin 4, fully aware it won't happen and finding myself pleasantly surprised by the little things. Still, this one was a bit stale.

    A year or so ago I'd have been totally stoked about Overwatch on the Switch - I used to play it all the time. At this point, it feels like too little too late. If it's priced well, I might pick it up, because I do have a lot of love for the game, but it will live and die based on how many other players go for the Switch version.

    So, I'm not quite sure how to react to Sans having a costume in Smash Ultimate that doesn't break Tildes' decorum, but I am going to imagine that custom stages are going to be rather... derivative...

    While there wasn't super much to get me hyped up, there were definitely a bunch of cool games in there. I'm definitely gonna try the Kirby one, and the new AC:NH trailer got me all excited!...

    Regardless of games, I really think the Nintendo Directs are such a good format. Very few downtime, no unnecessarily long segments, just a good filmroll of new games. Absolutely lovely every time.

    I am so ready for a new Deadly Premonition! I thought it would never happen, and really didn't expect it to end up on the switch (much less with the original being re-released too!). That was such a bizarre, quirky game. Time to get my coffee and sinner's sandwiches ready!

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions was a remarkably good and original game; I’d go so far as to say it was my favorite Wii U exclusive. Unfortunately I think about a dozen people played it at the time, so I’m ecstatic that it’ll have a second chance and be available to a wider audience.

    This may be the first time in a long time that I skip a Pokemon release. The open world excited me but any excitement is rapidly dying over Game Freak removing Mega Evolutions and Z Moves in favor of this Dynamax mechanic, removing the National Dex, and just generally feeling like they've run out of ideas for the Pokemon(Polteageist?). I mean the feeling of "running out of ideas" has been there for a few gens now but it feels worse this time around.

    I don't know.....maybe it's just the general nostalgia speaking but I would've preferred a Switch remake of HeartGold/SoulSilver or even X/Y.
