This indie direct was incredible. Nintendo teaming with indie developers? Cuphead on Switch!? Please Nintendo if this Zelda crossover does well, let Playtonic Games borrow the DK IP!

Blaster Master Zero 2 today? A lot of cool announcements today and they almost flew right over my head.

Well, I do declare. That was not something I expected

Not even joking, my jaw hurts. It dropped at cuphead, i got all choked up at red lantern (this coming from someone who can't stand dogs i.e. phobia), by blaster master zero 2 my mouth was unnaturally dry and now my jaw is completely locked- open and agape... CRYPT OF THE NECRO/ZELDA...... WUT!?

Now I basically have no use for my Xbox One anymore! It was my Cuphead Machine =)

But damn! This was WAY more exciting than that Google service thingy-mah-jingy. Well done! So many great titles coming... Oh, and hey! You AAA developers should start getting a clue as to how to make cool games again (hint: not everything is high-end graphics/interactive movies)

Well done, Nintendo!

Incredible! It's so cool of them to give Necrodancer a Minish cap makeover!

I won't lie... letting an indie developer mess with Zelda even in a crossover sort of fashion is a very radical turn for Nintendo... even more drastic than the Mario-Rabbids game. I don't know if I'll buy it since it isn't really a Zelda game, though.

But there were a lot of games I'm interested in: Cuphead, Katana Zero, and a 16-bit sequel to Blaster Master?! I'm really excited. These are the kinds of indie games that really CAN fill in the gaps between AAA game releases.

the presentation that Nintendo broadcasted today was realy great

*Recognized Necro Dancer*
*Saw trees ripped directly from A Link to the Past*
"WTF these indies ripped a zelda game!? I thought they were great!"
"Wait, WTF... How did this slip by Nintendo!?"
