discuss hopes, predictions, and announcements after it happens here.

Obligatory 'anything Metroid', but that's a pretty unlikely one. Aside from that, can't really think of anything I want to see announced. Won't watch it anyway, since it airs at midnight and I gotta go to work in the morning. Chimp needs his Z's.

I'll catch a roundup later, see what's up.

I can get behind this. Thing has supposedly been in development since 2015.

Probably just more pokemon news and small games for the switch.

Let's see. Zelda news, Pokemon news, More Smash DLC, possibly another Mario game. Unlikely to hear Metroid news, or anything outside of nintendo's normal wheelhouse

EDIT: Laura Dale the queen of spoilers, just tweeted a hint that there is a major reveal coming and the direct is gonna be 40 minutes long.

"So, I think
@JimSterling
is going to be very pleased by tonight's Nintendo Direct. Why? Everywhere I hear rumblings about something he's a big fan of surfacing as an announcement during that 40 mins. Really fun reveal. You'll want to be watching."

Kotaku pretty much spoiled an Overwatch port.

Also, seeing as the mask is now off on Smash's 4th DLC fighter, I'd assume we'll get our SNK newcomer reveal. Hoping for Mai or a Metal Slug rep, expecting Terry Bogart.

Banjo Kazooie comes out today for Smash Ultimate!!!!

Terry Bogard from SNK's Fatal Fury/King of Fighters confirmed as the 4th DLC fighter for Smash Ultimate.

And Nintendo Confirmed that there are even more DLC fighters in development after this Fighters Pack for Smash.

XENOBLADE CHRONICES 1 IS GETTING AN HD REMAKE!!!!

SANS IS IN SMASH......as a skin for Mii Fighers.

Deadly Premonition 2?! WTF timeline am I in?!

Samtemdo8:

i wasn't ready and i actually teared up.
I am so fucking happy right now

Also my freind is fucking pissed now that Overwatch for Switch is coming.

He was one of those fuckers in 2017 that was adamant the game couldn't run on Switch LMFAO!

Zero Suit D.Va with a Power Suit mech would be pretty rad.

Fuck Overwatch characters in Smash. If I want Blizzard characters give me Arthas or Thrall or Jim Raynor or Kerrigan.

Y'know, if D.Va did end up in Smash, it wouldn't surprise me as the IP's whored itself out to so many non-Nintendo IPs at this point that it doesn't matter anymore. But arguably at least D.Va would have an excuse what with Overwatch coming to the Switch. What excuse would StarCraft characters have outside StarCraft 64, and what reason would Warcraft have at all?

Hawki:

"It'd be cool"?

The Rogue Wolf:

That excuse can be used to justify the inclusion of any character from any IP.

Which Nintendo is free to do, at the end of the day. But before the day ends, I'm left to ask about justifications and whether there's any artistic merit for it. SSB started out as a Nintendo IP-only thing, but now it's morphed into "come one, come all."

I mean at this point Smash is such a premiere franchise companies all over would KILL to have a fighter in it. At this point it's not so much a celebration of Nintendo as it is a celebration of gaming. And with a second season of DLC coming I expect the madness to continue getting bigger and bigger.

Anyway, stuff:

-Overwatch: Whatever, but it is funny seeing people eat crow after claiming the Switch couldn't run it
-Trials of Mana: Gimme
-Terry: "ARE YOU OKAY!?"
-Tokyo Mirage Sessions: Glorious. Now make a sequel (also reminds me that Atlus sure are taking their sweet time with SMTV)
-Deadly Premonition: I'm sorry, WHAT?
-SNES Online: WHOO-HOO!
-Jedi Knight: HUH?????
-Xenoblade: Neat. Now port Xenoblade X. And make a Xenoblade X 2 already.

Kind of silly to think it can't tho. There are games on Switch that on PC have minimum system requirements equal to or higher than the recommended specs for Overwatch, like Doom, Wolfenstein 2 and soon Witcher 3 and Doom Eternal. Beside, Blizzard has a general policy of making games that can run on a wide variety of specs.

Aiddon:
-Trials of Mana: Gimme

Yeh, gimme.

-Tokyo Mirage Sessions: Glorious. Now make a sequel (also reminds me that Atlus sure are taking their sweet time with SMTV)

Awwwwu yieah boiyah! Now they just need to port Mario 3D World and the Wii U can be permanently laid to pasture as far as I'm concerned. Ok, maybe not, add in Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, just to be sure.

-Deadly Premonition: I'm sorry, WHAT?

Now this is a good biscuit. I've never tasted a biscuit this delicious.

-Jedi Knight: HUH?????

Kind of out of left field, but whatever, Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is a good game. Now, if it were the first Jedi Knight (aka Dark Forces II), that would warrant a "OK, but why tho?". It's not very good.

Ok, Separate Thread Time. Let's talk Smash Newly Announced DLC.

I wonder why. Its visual design really isn't that far removed - let alone advanced - beyond most of Nintendo's stuff.

Very happy with SNES online (though it should have come sooner), and happy with Xenoblade Chronicles remaster.

Nothing else really grabbed me, but that's mostly because a good deal of it was focused on games we already knew were coming.

I'm glad they decided to cut out the National Dex from Pokemon so that they could spend development time of stupid fucking mini games like camps and cookouts, instead of letting me have the pokemon I want.

WHERE IS BAYONETTA 3????? I need my Big Booty Witch Baenetta. Where is she?!

Terry Bogard is in Smash. Neat. Too bad I still don't have a copy of the game.

What are you talking about? I'm ecstatic that they removed the national dex for a currydex! $100% trade-off!!

My friend told me to watch this and I know why. Xenoblade and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. The latter was the only other game from the WiiU, besides Hyrule Warriors, I wanted to see come to switch. So fuck yeah!

So about that...
