Holy shovel finally Animal Crossing!

Can't wait fo Nintendo to show the game-changing online service!

But damn stupid joke aside. I am curious now as to see what they actually have. They usually have a surprise or two.

Keep it calm kiddos, and let's just enjoy! =)

So, to sum it up...

...the only new thing being unveiled about the Online Tax that we did not know before...

...is having the exclusive privilege to buy exclusive merch at Nintendo's website on selected times?

Wowzers. I'm moved. For real reals. Go ahead paying up for a mostly peer-to-peer online multiplayer scene on Nintendo systems that you rightfully had for free up until now, people. It's super worth it, now...

Not a bad direct. It's nice to see Square Enix putting so much effort into the Switch, even if most of it is Final Fantasy games I don't want to play. I'll consider Crystal Chronicles, if the price is low or the added content is big enough.

Those NES controllers are neat-looking, but I would have preferred Switch Joycons with NES controller stylings. If I wanted to play with an original NES controller, I still have my NES and actual cartridges.

No objections to Isabelle in Smash. And I hope the Switch Animal Crossing gets the overhaul it sorely needs.

ANIMAL CROSSING IS FINALLY COMING TO THE SWITCH!!
On a side note, Game Freak's Town, Yoshi's Crafted World, and Luigi's Mansion 3 look neat as well.

This was actually pretty good.

it's strange that square is releasing FF7, 9, 10, 10-2 and 12 but skipping FF8. What's up with that ?

Wasn't FF8 considered the black sheep of the franchise or something like that?

Think people hated it for the leveling system! Apart from that, I have NO idea why they should not add it.

Very happy to see the FF7 game, even though I first thought it was the remake... But I rather have this from what I have seen from the remake, so... But I like surprises. The remake CAN be good.

By some people but it's still one of the best selling square enix game. http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Best_selling_Square-Enix_games.
And I loved to play it on switch.

I assume that the whole FF8 hate band wagon began with Spoony's review of it.

Hahahaa, that review is a great watch though.

But damn, besides IX.... VIII is a must for me on Switch. So disappointed we're not getting it! IX & VIII are two of my favs (IX is my GOAT tho).

Still didn’t reveal what the online service offers. “We’ll have more to announce later, but sign up in 5 days!”

You will just have to sign up or shut up?

Yeah, great solution Nintendo has provided us with.

So NOW you can all hate on the online service! It's official and all!

Luigi's Mansion 3 AND ANIMAL CROSSING 2019!!!!! I went in to this direct with low expectations as I thought Nintendo wouldn't talk about anything 2019 besides Yoshi. Boy was I wrong and glad to be as well. 2019 is looking TOOO good. Like how is Nintendo gonna fit..

- New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
- Luigi's Mansion 3
- Animal Crossing
- Bayonetta 3
- Metroid Prime 4
- Pokemon
- Daemon X Machina
- Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- Yoshi's Crafted World
- Town (Game Freak New IP)

All in one year! Some of these are gonna have to get the delay hammer...If all these come out in 2019 this will be even better than 2017! My wallet can't handle all of this!

Completely agree. For me this was an amazing Direct. The online service details weren't really given - nothing more than what has been said already. But, it really doesn't bother me when the rest of the direct was spectacular.

I feel Metroid and Bayo have a good chance of being 2020 titles. Still, for 2019 it's gonna be a very good year.
The fact that us Nintendo console owners are going to be able to play Final Fantasy VII on a Nintendo system is going to be a surreal experience in and out of itself.

I'm beyond pissed that all the NES games are 100% the same worldwide. We're even getting Twinbee, a Japanese exclusive while Japan's getting Tecmo Bowl, a US exclusive. (on VC at least, not on Famicom) You can kiss Startropics and Fire Emblem goodbye, and with 3 lame titles a month the month Urban Champion lands is going to be painful D:

It's at times like this that I wish SLIGEACH_EIRE hadn't gotten himself banned. His meltdown would have been epic.

So he DID get banned. Well, he would never leave on his own I guess.

Back to normal then! =)

I can remember when a systems library would be made up, almost entirely, of new games. And not mostly ports of games that have been around for years.

I feel sorry for the people who believed Nintendo would pull out a big surprise for their online service.

Luigi's Mansion 3 looked awesome and I'm very happy about that. It was also nice to see more of Yoshi's Crafted World, which looks so cute and charming and warms my heart like little else does.

2019 will definitely make up for 2018 unless they start delaying a bunch of games that are currently slated for 2019.

Civ VI AND Cities Skylines!!!

Please stop Nintendo, I can only get so erect!

Everything about the paywall sounds underdone but Nintendo already beat me on that front by making Smash pretty much their only major release for the end of the year. What am I gonna do? NOT play that online?

Feel pretty badly for poor Luigi. Last Direct they killed him and now in this one they killed his Switch. (T_T)

Just watched the NSMBU clip...and EXCUSE me!!! That is not Toad....THAT is Alla Gold!
