E3’s last day had some big announcements, almost exclusively stemming from Nintendo’s E3 Direct earlier today. Fans of all sorts of franchises have something new to look forward to, now – I’m salivating for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, for example. I’m also ecstatic over Advance Wars coming back from the dead, and, of course, Metroid Dread finally being reality is like a fever dream. The Direct had a few misses, though, which may have left some fans disappointed. For example, the implication that we might not get any additional The Legend of Zelda ports on Switch stings, and the vagueness surrounding the Breath of the Wild sequel’s release date has me uneasy. Overall, how did you feel about the Direct today?
Personally, I loved it. Today was the most fun I’ve had with a direct in a long time. Announcements like the return of Advance Wars and a port of Super Monkey Ball Deluxe have both been at the top of my wishlist for a very long time. I’m also interested in the new Mario Party title, the Danganronpa trilogy, and a few other games. I ultimately saw five or six new Switch titles that I really hope to buy this year. That’s a great Direct if you ask me.
