As many of you know, Nintendo streamed a new Nintendo Direct earlier this month on April 12th. This direct conveyed an abundant amount of information in just 35 minutes. Quite a few surprises in there as well.
First, I’ll start with the 3DS info. I’ll simply name the games that I am most excited for because the list is huge. My most anticipated games from the list of 3DS games that they showed us are Pikmin 3DS (there has never been a mobile pikmin game before so that’ll be exciting!), Monster Hunter Stories (A game that allows you to capture and train monsters in order to battle others in turn based combat), an update to Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valencia (Very excited for the new Fire Emblem game!), And lastly we have the new Kirby game, Kirby’s Blowout Blast.
Now I’ll move onto the Switch information. This is the information I was most excited about from the Nintendo Direct. One of my most anticipated games for the Switch was Arms, and they left a hefty amount of details for that game in this direct. For one, they announced a new character Min Min, a girl who has noodles for arms (I love her). Not only did they introduce a new character, but also mentioned new abilities that can be used throughout every Arms match. Every character has their own unique ability they can use in a fighting match. They also announced a 2 v 2 battle mode, which before was unheard of! Lastly, they finally announced a release date, June 16th! Sooner than I expected for sure.
The other game that they showed off that I’m sure many of us were excited about is Splatoon 2. With this demonstration, they showed off a new game mode called Salmon Run, which looks like a multiplayer co-op horde mode. This mode looks really addicting and I can’t wait to see what they add the new mode.
That concludes all of the big information that was provided for the Nintendo Direct on 4/12. What did you guys think of the Direct? Did I leave out any information that you were excited about? Leave comments below!
