I didn’t notice it right away since i was typing, but the charge meter and triple attacks looks really interesting in SMRPG


And the Boss Rematches look nice, too


Someone on Twitter noticed and looks like Culex is back too so that’s nice info to know he’s back


Though right now I’m wondering if Princess Peach Showtime!,TTYD, Luigi’s Mansion 3,Mario vs. DK will be useable with vouchers?


I assume they will be, but… i don’t think anything has been said yet


Would definitely buy some vouchers and use a few on these games - i definitely would use one on TTYD 100%, though…


Not sure if I’d use one on LM3, but… it’s a consideration

  • Princess Peach: Showtime! looks awesome, and the transformation aspect could mean there's a ton of content in the game. Guess we'll see!
  • Did not expect to see a Paper-Mario: The Thousand Year Door remaster/re-release! It's been way too long since I last played it, should be fun to revisit. (Boy, there's been a lot of GameCube re-releases lately haven't there? I guess it's just old enough/the right time.)
  • I REALLY did not expect to see Trace Memory/Another Code, well, basically ever again! I never did play the Wii sequel though, so that should be cool.
  • I was excited to see Mario vs. Donkey Kong at first, but deflated a bit when I realized it was a remake of the original GBA game. Should still be a fun time but maybe not a day 1 buy for me.
  • F-Zero 99…baby steps toward a new F-Zero game I guess?
  • A little surprised to see Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown on the Switch, but that should be a nice option if you don't have other systems.
  • Unicorn Overlord from VanillaWare looks cool, though it also reminds me that I still haven't played Tactics Ogre Reborn.
  • Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, yeah I didn't need to see the credits to know this is from the makers of Suikoden. Looks fun but I feel like I'm getting backlogged on long RPGs at the moment.
  • Lots of other games that were previously announced still look good, Super Mario RPG most of all.
  • Oh and Trombone Champ looks like goofy fun, I've seen videos of it from I assume a PC or Mobile version.


Press release below:

Mario VS Donkey Kong: They're remaking a GBA game with 3D visuals and reselling it for $50. Well, if Link's Awakening was successful...


I can't believe the shovelware Nintendo fans buy (or, buy again).


At least Piich Swordfighter and Detective Peachkachu are GODDAMN AMAZING. I'm so happy for her. This is by far the best thing to happen to petch from texas or anyone in the Mario series. She's definitely the Nintendo mascot I'd considered least likely to see kicking ass in gender-neutral costumes. Alas, it's probably meant to be a little girl's first game, with two difficulty settings like modern Kirby: "beatable with your eyes closed" or "beatable with your eyes closed and hands cut off".

You know…


I wonder if there’s a chance we could see a side story with Luigi’s adventures in the Waffle Kingdom added to the TTYD remake?


Might be unlikely, but would be a neat bonus to add.. always was curious about that story back then..

Just a random thought that crossed my mind recently….




And trimmed down and things i liked:

Splatoon 3 Side Order DLC

Mario vs. D.K. Remaster

Super Mario RPG

Luigi Mansion 2 (?)

Princess Peach Showtime!

SaGa Emerald Saga

Detective Pikachu (?)

F-Zero 99 (?)

Sora Amiibo/Zelda and Xenoblade Amiibo

WarioWare Move It!

Eiyuden Chronicles Hundred Heroes

Aeterna Noctis

Eastward DLC


Paper Mario TTYD Remaster


I don’t think i missed anything…


But a nice handful of announcements of interest to me - some were already known before, but..

Is the DK vs. Mario THE  DK94 game?  OR is it a new game in that style?


SMRPG, are they doing something with the dead zones of the original's graphics?  From the trailer cuts I can't tell.


Real talk, how does OG Tomb Raider play?  This series has intrigued me.  I could be into starting from scratch.  I did like all 3 movies LOL.





Ok, I watched that trailer for the new Princess Peach game.... and is it me, or does it feel like a Luigi's Mansion 3 deal in a different building and instead of the poltergust upgrades, you get Peach costumes?


I am digging it though...

Unsure, but from what I assumed it was a remake of the GBA game?


Although i could be wrong or mistaken on that, since I’m not 100% sure…


But that’s what it looked like to me, at least…

The new Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a remake of the 2004 GBA game of the same name, which was more or less a spiritual successor of Donkey Kong '94. So no, it's not the same game as DK '94 but it's also not exactly an entirely new game.

Well, that was the last Direct for 2023 and personal tho it ended on strong note the Switch's Swan Song is showing with all the remakes/ports in the Direct. If you look pass that and appreciate what the games are you will absolutely love this Direct.


It's funny, the last few Directs, ppl complained it was remake heavy, it's not that I didn't see it then, since then the number of them just increase that is more apparent to see. Some may not mind and some may pick up on more. I just happen to this time and that's only because, we all know that the Switch will soon seen its successor will come on the scene. When I think about like that and I love most of the remakes here, it makes the showing of game more tolerable and acceptable what was shown off. Also, makes sense that Nintendo and the start of their new system wanna have bangers out the gate so right now for the Switch it means it gotta resort to remakes as it set off into the horizon.


Enough that, what I like about the Direct:

I enjoyed that Princess Peach Showtime! more than I thought I would and that is a definite cop next year. As for if it will be Kirby like in difficulty is hard to say but I'll be open in how game will proceed with pace and difficulty.


Interesting that the Side Order Splatoon 3 DLC Expansion pass is coming out next Spring. Well they didn't specified whn part would come out this year, can't complain about something that didn't exist.


I still need to get Eastward (it was mentioned you don't need to play or have Eastward to play the DLC) but I need to get that and the DLC.


I have heard of the Another Code game but I didn't know, games were that engrossing, that's a maybe cop.


That Dave the Diver game, looks pretty good to me, glad there's a demo to try out.


Yeah, gonna play my first 99 battle royal game so F-Zero 99 here I come!


Of course the confirmation of Sora having amiibo was confirmed again? XC 3 Mio and Noah amiibo nice as well too.


The Contra game looked interesting....


Looking even more forward to Super Mario PRG


And last but not least TTYD remake, is the icing to the Mario RPG cake and I cannot wait. Next year it turn 20 years old when he game releases so very appropriate.


Everything else were kinda meh, outside Eidyen Chronicles and that's about it.


So out of 10 for me it is your mileage will vary or above meh. Translation 7/10.

And there's this...


For the record and I see a few reaction to this trailer. I spotted what the game was the moment the star of the book was barely in view, didn't need to see it in full , hear the music or see rogueport. That's how I know this game by hear to notice it at a moment glance.
