Looking at the past two years, it seems we got a direct the first Wednesday of February, so if the trend continues, we could get one this week!

Hope so!  And it should be the last direct that exclusively shows Switch games.  The next one should reveal the Switch's successor, or include games for it if its revealed outside of a Direct

Please include Silksong please include Silksong

 

Would be cool to get updates on Drago Quest 3 (2D-HD Remake) and Metal Slug Tactics too

I didn't have an opportunity to watch the partner direct, but I might watch it sometime this weekend.  However I just looked at the list of games in it and there doesn't' look like there's anything for me in this batch.

 

Cool that Mother 3 is releasing on the Japanese NSO though

Peach looks like a game that’s going to be a lot of fun for my kid, but not with a lot of crossover for the adults.

That definitely wasn't Charles Martinet  at the beginning of the video

Maybe since Hollow Knight: Silksong was recently rated E by the ESRB, it will finally be mentioned in tomorrow's Indie Direct, and maybe even shadow dropped afterward?

 

... I'll put on my clown make-up now.

I suspect we will - never played any until 3, which was terrific.  Does 2 have a co-op component like 3 did?

I can't imagine it could have on the 3DS, but maybe they are adding it to the Switch version?

Here we go!

 

Woah what is this Mario/Luigi game!?

 

What!? A new Mario & Luigi RPG!?

 

Mario & Luigi Brothership, dropping November 7th! Wow!

 

NIntendo World Championships NES Edition.  Neat but not my thing really

 

Fairy Tail 2. Never heard of it. Not my thing.

 

Fantasian Neo Dimension - looks really cool! I liked the visuals, and the battle mechanics seem more like the old school ones I like than the newer styles I find hard to grock

 

Nintendo Switch Sports free Basketball update - I've never talked to a single persno who had or even played this game and I feel like the podcasts barely covered it

 

Memories In Orbit - Animation briefly reminded me of Aeon Flux for a second..  As the trailer went on I got super into this - this looks AWESOME.  Too bad its a 2025 game

 

Disney Illusion Island - meh

 

Hello Kitty Island Adventure - lol

 

Looney Tunes Wacky World of Sports - lol

 

Among Us free update - didn't know this game was still popular

 

Farmagia - Looks silly

 

Donkey Kong Country Returns HD - Wow!  I never played this one.  I've heard lots of complaints about it, but a lot of people love it too.  I wonder if the remake will fix a lot of the things people complained about.  January 16th 2025, wow

 

Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake - looks INCREDIBLE!!!!!!  Really want to get and play this one for sure!! November 14th!

 

Dragon Quest I & II 2D-HD Remake - WOW!!  Coming 2025! Awesome!!!

 

Man that was cool to see Yuji Horii hyping both games, and recommending to play III then I then I

 

Funko Fusion - lol, lots of creativity here.  Seems like the same wheelhouse as the Lego games

 

Luigi's Mansion 2 HD - Coming out in just 9 days!

 

The New Dempa Men - lol

 

Metal Slug Attack Reladed - they made a tower defense game too!?

 

Darkest Dungeon II - wow, cool graphics!  Not a game I'd play though

 

Zelda A Link To The Past Four Swords - Oh wow awesome, I never played this one!

 

Metroid Zero Mission - Amazing, one of the best metroidvanias ever

 

Turok Dinosaur Hunter - meh

 

Perfect Dark - oh man, so many memories of playing hours and hours of this game in college with my roommates

 

Phantom Brave The Lost Hero - meh

 

Marvel Vs Capcom FIghting Collection - These are all from well after I lost interest in these kinds of games, but I did love SF2 back in the day.

 

Super Mario Party Jamboree - I've never played any Mario Party game somehow

 

The Legend of Zelda Echoes of Wisdom - HOLY MOTHERFORKING SHIRTBALLS this looks AMAZING!!!!!!!

 

Cool to see Eiji Aonuma come on and talk about it.  Huh, the tri-staff mechanic seems really cool.  Sort of BOTW/TOTK inspired.  Doesn't seem like the game will have much combat though?

 

Ah OK here's some combat.  Lol, monsters fighting on your side against other monsters

 

Wow! The more they show of this game the more awesome is looks!  Wow, so many echoes in the game!  And its coming out September 26!  Amazing!

 

Just Dance 2025 - lol what a joke to show right after an amzing new Zelda game

 

Lego Horizon Adventures - Very cool looking.  Still gotta play the main game

 

Stray - I remember this game from a few years ago.  I wonder why it took so long to come to Switch

 

Tales of the Shire  - huh.  The character design is hideous, but the backgrounds look great.  Gameplay looks boring.  I wonder how the music will be.

 

Ace Attorney Investigations Collection - neat!

 

The Hundred Line Last Defense Academy - meh

 

Romancing SaGa 2 remake - looks nice, but don't think the SaGa games are for me

 

Metroid Prime 4 - OMG the first trailer since the teaser in 2017 lol

 

Huh.  Doesn't look particularly interesting.  This took 7 years to create?

 

Er, 8 years I guess, a 2025 release date.  Well hopefully there's lots more to reveal than what they showed here.

It really does look awesome.  I love 2D Zelda games and the art style works great for the gameplay from what I can see

It's just a Metroid. And development of Prime 4 was restarted in 2019 with Retro.

This is kinda neat.  We're now officially in the longest gap ever between home consoles from Nintendo
