Nintendo direct e3 discussion thread.
Posted: Posted June 11th by weid man

Alright since eagle and Orion Nebula have made an EA and microsoft e3 conference discussion thread I'll make one for the upcoming Nintendo direct since for the third straight time Nintendo will not by holding a press conference at e3, which I find to be a disappointment because no one at e3 will be able to play any of their games and hardware hands on at the event. Anyways, do you think that the switch will say art out with great third party titles like skyrim and persevere through this generation or will they give up like they did with the Wii and the Wiiu? We had resident evil 4, far cry 2, calll of duty 3, red steel, Rayman rabbids, for third party games for the system launch (or at least very close to that) games for the Wii but then Nintendo bailed on us. For the wiiu we had assassin's creed 3/4, mass effect 3, resident evil revelations 1, Bateman, bayonetta 1 and 2, and the few sonic games that came out for the system but other than that, Nintendo again bailed on us and decided to go first party only. Will Nintendo get their shit together and port third party games to the switch and also continue porting to the 3ds at a much larger quantity? And will their online service be top quality and laggy and other basic shit which we had to put up with on the ds/3ds and wii/wiiu?

There are 47 Replies

Two more titles I forgot to add xenoblade chronicle 1 and x and 3d and splatoon.

I don't know. Only time will tell. Nintendo needs to put effort into reaching out to 3rd parties, and those third parties need to take risks and bring those games out to the Switch.. and gamers need to buy those games and make sure third parties make a profit to continue selling and introducing new games on the Switch..

The stage has certainly been set for them to do so. Two underwhelming performances so far as judged by the public eye. Hopefully they have more to show other than Mario Odyssey and Splatoon. If not, I think they deserve to fail.

*Pikmin on Switch

*Fire Emblem Warriors and that mainstream game
*Xenoblade Chronicles 2 detailed with a Feb 2018 release
*More Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon 3ds info and a Switch exclusive named Stars or something like that which will have cross play

*Nintendo's online service gets detailed and we get a big patch released this week for the switch

Was a pretty good direct. Not what I was expecting.. Hope we get smash 4 port this year and more AAA 3rd party support announcements. I think Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 being released this holiday is a bit much.. Light weight hope Xeno2 gets delayed to Q1 2018.

-Rocket League coming to the Switch!
-Xenoblade Chronicles 2 new trailer and still slated for holiday 2017 release
-footage for new fire emblem game
-another trailer of mario+rabbids
-new Kirby game
-new Yoshi game
-a RPG Pokemon game officially in development for Switch. No footage or title
-Metroid Prime 4 is officially in development! No footage sadly
-super mario odyssey trailer and gameplay footage(treehouse)

"Pretty good"

The best part about it was a static screen reading Metroid Prime 4.

Footage for the WARRIORS Fire Emblem game, specifically. Not the actual FE still in development that people care more about.

Wait that was for the warriors game? I thought it was for the mainstream fire emblem game that was actually shown.

What were hoping for?


So.. out of the games announced, which ones will you guys buy?

Out of the games announced? Probably none besides MP4. Odyssey looks alright. I still need to see more to convince me to get a Switch.

Nintendo just announced and showed gameplay for Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS.

While I don't think Nintendo's showcase was stellar, the show isn't over yet. They're slowly announcing stuff on Treehouse.

Oh it's a remake of 2. No wonder Nintendo shut down that fan remaster lol.

I didn't catch the full trailer but I'm assuming you're referring to the counter ability. Watching the gameplay now and it's not used that frequently and appears to work in real time. It may have been shown slowly in the trailer for uhh effect?

There were a few times in the trailer where Samus was vs monsters larger than just the common mobs and she'd do shit like jump up and grab its tail, throw it back around (like Mario throwing Bowser in SM64), then shoot its exposed belly in slow-mo. I wasn't a fan.

Posted June 13th by Dice

I think that type of move is available only after a counterattack. I'v only seen it used a few times in about 30 minutes of gameplay. Gameplay is pretty standard 2D Metroid.

I've got my hands on the new yoshi game! So back that they have brought back this franchise after having no games on the GameCube nor Wiii, and yoshis island ds, and new island sucked. Just ask pirate ninja for further details. Wooly world was wonderful.

Why are they making a new fire emblem and pikmin game on the 3ds but not the switch where it belongs on?

Nintendo made me a happy girl. Lol, can't wait for Xenoblade 2! I also can't wait for Fire Emblem Warriors. I enjoyed the Zelda version on the Wii U. Fire Emblem Warriors is also for the 3DS too.

Whew. I was worried about Xenoblade after that trailer but the gameplay demo they're showing looks great.

Pikmin and paper Mario do not belong on a handheld. Fox forever told me that metroid prime 4 is coming out for the switch. They really only showed the 3ds metroid game on the live stream based on what I saw from the very beginning.

Fire Emblem warriors has the potential to be really cool, I will admit. But they would have made more money with Mushroom Kingdom Warriors, or Metroid Warriors, or Final Fantasy Warriors. Why go to such an obscure franchise?

By far the best 1st party lineup Nintendo ever had for its 1st year, but its 3rd party support is really lackluster. I'm still hoping for cod ww2 (and perhaps assassins creed) this year.

M&L remake is apparently going to be released october 6. I don't see why it's hardly being talked about, let alone isn't listed on that list. They're even gonna add a new story/gameplay mode by the sound of it. Am I the only one who's kind of looking forward to it?

How does Mushroom Kingdom Warriors make any sense at all? That game series is all about swinging around big swords and massacring hordes of enemies. Fire Emblem makes sense, it's a game all about big swords and dragons and big kablewies. Mario has no swords.

Am I the only one who's kind of looking forward to it?


Fuck yeah I'm gonna get it, though it will be bittersweet since I really don't see another M&L of Superstar Saga's caliber ever being made again. That series rests peacefully next to Paper Mario. F

I did like the 2 that came after it at least. Partners in Time was kind of dark and had a really interesting atmosphere even if they didn't make the most of it. It was fun and interesting. Bowser's Inside Story was also fun and interesting albeit irritating and repetitive at some parts. I wouldn't really say the series died until what came after Bowser's Inside Story...

Posted June 14th by KnokkelMillennium

Partners in Time was the titties. I wasn't huge on Bowser's Anal Exam. But now the series truly is dead and I think Nintendo remaking the first game is admittance of that.

How does any Mario game make sense at all? It's literally an 80's pornstar who took up plumbing on magic mushrooms in space. His hobbies include go karting, tennis, and capturing dinosaurs. His primary enemy is a Fire breathing giant turtle with an airship fleet.

Giving Mario a sword would be like the least radical thing they could do at this point
