I was really hoping for a Switch mini before I bought into Nintendo again. Maybe the price will come down or I can get it on a sale. I just can't justify spending 300 dollars right now...though I'm really frickin tempted right now.
They just straight killed it IMO. I'd been very underwhelmed by this E3 and underwhelmed by my Switch post 2017, but now there's more Switch games that I'm excited about than games I'm stoked for on the other platforms.
Writing this as I watch the Direct belatedly and stuff come up.
Luigi's Mansion's always neat.
Dark Crystal Tactics seemed ok.
Link's Awakening Remake is super cute.
Trials of Mana Remake looks pretty damn cool (yay PC too) and neat to get the original for the first time outside Japan too.
The Witcher III is OMGWTFBBQ for Switch even if it looks/runs horribly in the end.
Fire Emblem Three Houses looks pretty great.
Resident Evil ports again are whatever.
No More Heroes 3 is HYPE, hopefully the game resembles the video, or tops it.
Contra looked alright, it could be fun.
The Daemon X Machina trailer made it look cool again after the old demo was a tad disappointing so hopefully it will deliver.
Panzer Dragoon Remake, what the fuck man? I hope SEGA doesn't fuck that up giving it to some middling studio. The graphics were nice enough but I can't tell from that alone. They better do Zwei too! Fuck! Unexpected! I wanna get hyped. I imagine this has no reason to only be for Switch much like Mana.
Pokemon is great, I already said how the world seems beautiful and Xenoblade-like in its vistas after the last Direct. Neat to give a demo.
Astral Chain looks better than ever in that footage showing more varied areas and stuff and Platinum always deliver.
No clue what to think of Romero's Empire of Sin, hopefully it's cool.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 looks pretty damn fun as always. Definitely topped the other systems' Avengers game for hype (for now).
Cadence of Hyrule is funny.
Mario & Sonic Olympics game is whatever to me, I haven't played such games since Decathlete/Winter Heat on Saturn, but nice graphics.
Animal Crossing looks pretty awesome!
The highlight reel after that point was pretty decent, lots of good games, but yeah, all multiplatform. Still cool to get the likes of Doom and shit on Switch. Alien Isolation too! Lots of good stuff in there. And meh stuff like Dauntless, heh. Mario Maker 2 is obviously cool.
Lmao @ Banjo Kazooie, more Smash is always good!
Wow! new Zelda! It seems way darker than BOTW despite the same art style (and assets?). Maybe it's to BOTW what Majora's Mask was to OoT!
Well, that wrapped it up.
As far as E3 events go this was pretty good to me. Maybe the best this E3 (other than liking Microsoft's for having so much PC stuff and the VR stuff).
Nice to have Treehouse showcase more of some of these games. I caught some of their Astral Chain gameplay. Man, go Platinum!
At least it'll be full game and not in 20 parts. ZING
Anyway, just caught up now, and Nintendo killed it. They honestly saved E3, and major props to them. Can't wait to play all the amazing titles they showed.
The look of Luigi's mansion really pranged my Nostalgia bone for some reason, I didn't even play the old Luigi Mansion games on Gamecube and 3DS but there is something crazy nostalgic about the pure aesthetic of that game. Astral Chain is a game I completely forgot about and looks awesome, kind of like Bayonetta mashed with Jojo. NMH3 Hell yeah, Trials of Mana is the game I'm looking forward to the most from E3, Seiken Densetsu 3 is one of the all time greatest RPG's and I'm assuming this new Zelda is the Monolithsoft developed one that was rumoured from a few months back right?
