Holy shit Undertales actually coming to the Switch

 

Been wanting to play that for awhile, actually... Looking forward to when it comes out

 

Also HW coming out 5/18 - i had a feeling we'd see a release date in the direct

 

Nice to see it coming out in the next couple months

 

The Splatoon 2 stuff looks interesting, whatever it is - will have to rewatch it later - streams a tad laggy on my end

"One more video".... Could it be Smash? Nope, Splatoon ink. Time to turn this off. Wait. This is suspicious. NO THIS IS SMASH. I jumped in my seat twice after seeing that IT REALLY IS SMASH AND BOTW LINK IS HERE.

 

So while we all panic, can we take a moment to agree that this narrator for this video was without a doubt the single most soulless tool our society could possibly provide? It was kind of entertaining to watch him work his way around the fractured butthole, but I died about five times at his butchering of "casa bonita". That is actually going to keep me up at night.

Goddamn, that Smash teaser gave me goosebumps. Can't believe it's actually coming this year; it must be an enhanced port then, right? Or could they have actually built an entirely new game for Switch?

 

Also dang, I literally just bought South Park: The Fractured But Whole for PS4 yesterday. :| Oh well, I got it cheap.

Holy shit Smash Bros. is coming to Switch this year?

 

Hell yeah - highly looking forward to it coming out

 

Also looks with Inklings as newcomers which is pretty sweet

 

At first i thought we were going to get a port of the first Splatoon game for some reason.... Weird

Really solid direct. And smaaaaaash.

 

More 3ds support than I expected.

 

Yeah, more 3DS games coming in 2019. They do look really low-budget though. I doubt many people were asking for Bowser's Inside Story But With Worse Graphics.

So in the January ND they said Mario Tennis Aced would be coming in “Dpring 2018.”

 

Not sure how a June 22 release date is “Spring 2018” when that’s the second full day of Summer.

Actual thoughts:
WarioWare Gold - Neat, don't know if I'll buy
Dillon's Dead Heat Breakers - I'll probably buy
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story DX - I'm kinda confused, why did they skip Partners in Time?
Detective Pikachu - Not sure if I'll buy
Luigi's Mansion - Neat, although I probably won't buy.  If it were Switch, I'd consider.

Okami HD - Good.  Great for it to be on Switch.
Captain Toad - Makes sense.  Probably won't repurchase unless there's a sale.
Dark Souls amiibo - LOL
Mario Tennis Aces - Effort!  Honest to god effort!

Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion - Great!
Crash Bandicoot - Amazing grab.
South Park - Wow, another great grab.

I'm lukewarm on this Direct. Nice to see Nintendo finally confirmed what everyone was already thinking with Inkling in Smash. (And what an overpowered reveal it was. :P) I'm glad they're in, but I'm not a Splatoon fan, so I'm hoping this means another few characters are in the works.

Another highlight for me is WarioWare. While it's no replacement for Warioland, it's nice to see Ninty isn't gonna leave Wario alone after Game & Wario flopped. Here's hoping this isn't another Mario Party Top 100 situation, though they did say they'd be adding new minigames. Octopath is looking super good, though I'm cautious with any game coming out of Square Enix. The Luigi's Mansion port was... a strange choice, especially given the timing. I mean, great, but why now? Crash Bandicoot was unexpected but nice to see, though I'll still probably stick with the PS1 originals. Mario Tennis Aces is shaping up nicely, though I wish they'd said more about the story mode. After the last Mario Tennis I'm worried the single player will be just as barebones. I'm sure folks went insane over Undertale. Cue the gratuitous reaction videos. :P

 

I don't think anyone was asking for nearly this much Captain Toad. The Splatoon Octo Expansion video was a fresh dose of "What did I just watch?" I was a little suprised we didn't see Bayonetta, and severely disappointed they didn't talk about Fire Emblem. Ah, well. Three months till E3.

My guess is Spring is meant to denote Q2, which is April-June.

BotW Link aside, I like to think that's the Samus Returns version of Aran there, with the bigger looking power suit shoulders. No more Other M...

I should've been more specific, then

 

i mean there's Partners In Time, Bowsers Inside Story and Dream Team, so i may  have been thinking of the DS/3DS game line as a whole instead of separate iterations

 

I was somewhat also typing out thoughts out in a hurry so there may have been an mistaken error on that

Can’t believe that’s already been made into a GIF so fast.

 

Well, I'm the one who made that one, but I've already seen others being posted.
