Please. The game actually has a lot of content.

People were too fixated on the 4 boards. Had it come with Just 2 more, there wouldn’t have been that big of outcry.
NDCube spread themselves thin with the amount of different modes, so each mode felt a little thin. Hopefully they cut one of the modes so that the others can have more to do. The rhythm game mode is fun, but it's kind of the odd duckling. That can go. River Survival fits Mario Party better, but needs more minigames.

Guys he not telling the whole truth. Please read the entire description of the video. They list a sizzle reel of games.

They also list Viewtiful Joe port, Monolith Soft new IP and new 3D Mario

Okay, going back to that SpawnWave discussion list (which I doubt is actually reflective of the Direct)... it would be the most amazing Direct of all time:
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Terry Bogard reveal
  • Super Mario 3D World port
  • Pikmin 3 port
  • Pikmin 4
  • SNES - Nintendo Switch Online
  • New Update for Super Mario Maker 2
  • Super Mario Party 2
  • Star Fox
  • 2D Metroid
  • Monolith New IP
  • New 3D Mario Game
Obviously not all of these are happening, but this is beyond a dream direct.

I think most people love it. Got it for my sister and she played more than 30 hours of it without me and loves the game.

I agree that the minigames are pretty good, the dice stuff is fun and the maps are better than previous entries. Still it's crazy they only made 4 maps and they all are pretty similar and small.
Yeah, I think SMP is pretty good (biggest problem by far is the lack of boards; should've had six like most MP games do). Shame a potential sequel might tone it down with the Joy-Con usage (with the Switch Lite; probably tuning the game more towards local wireless play).

Viewtiful Joe would fit with Peer's GCN bomba port if it's a collection incmuding 1 and 2. Viewtiful Joe 1 was a mild success, but Viewtiful Joe 2 was not as lucky.

Super Mario Party 2 would be very welcome, assuming it has online. I sold my copy entirely because I couldn't play with distant mates.
2D Metroid has long been rumoured, assumed that Mercury Steam are working on a follow-up. Would be delightful to see this revealed, but I'd take a Samus Returns port too.
Pikmin 4 is like...vaporware at this point, and I just want to see it revealed. It's such a delightful series, and would be right at home on Switch.
Star Fox returning and not being hot shit would be nice too.

I mean, if all four of those land in a single Direct, that's a big deal.

Any chance Nintendo creates a DS adaptor for the Switch?? The DS and 3DS library is so big that letting it sit there on dead portables when technically it can play on the Switch, should be a great priority. Hope at least in switch 2, it becomes BC with Switch and 3DS library.

Someone mentioned light gun games a page back or so. I would absolutely be in favor of the Resident Evil: Umbrella/Darkside chronicles games making it over.

That would be the best Nintendo anything ever. That tops their E3’s and everything.

As far as first party stuff goes that sounds plausible if they are going to be hinting at games that could all possibly release before next E3 plus a bonus (Mario) announcement and Pimkin 4 just because 3 was announced

OK insiders, put your money where your mouths are: on a scale of '10/10 definitely confirmed' to '12/10 shadow dropping after the Direct, ask your Mom', how confirmed is the Wonderful 101 port?

I understand if you can't come right out and say it publicly. Just key your handset once for Yes, twice for Double Yes.

Ok, well I guess there's Mystery Game #4. Especially considering she said no one guessed it and it's not exciting.
absolutely not. she specifically said it wasn’t exciting
If I actually said that, then I misspoke.
I honestly couldn't tell you whether it's exciting or not. Because I haven't seen it with my own eyes.
It's something new from Nintendo. I'm interested to learn more about it myself.

I was simply quoting from Raccoon, I apologize, I didn't read that you said that yourself.

And that does actually sound exciting, new should be fun. We will see.

I guessed the direct date exactly on another forum, so I'm going to throw my hopes/predictions out in the hope my luck carries over :P

  • Direct starts with the next Smash reveal - I really hope the leak regarding who it is isn't true, absolute most boring nobody character they could have picked if it is. I don't really have any wishes here anymore. Maybe Phoenix Wright?
  • LM3 gets shown off, DQXI gets a quick trailer.
  • Bethesda/Panic Button bringing Fallout to the Switch
  • Pikmin Collection (remaster of 1, 2 and 3) announced for release in November, 4 in development for release next year.
  • Bayonetta 3 teaser shown off, release date given as October 2020.
  • New Pokemon starters have their evolutions shown
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (both Rescue Team and Explorers) get ported to Switch, with remastered music and graphics (not remade - the pixel art is perfect as it is). Alternatively, a new PMD in the style of the first two is announced.
  • Pokemon/Fire Emblem crossover; with FE gameplay and Pokemon elements (like Conquest) announced for release next year.
  • New WarioWare announced, releasing April next year.
  • SNES games being added to Online, available after the direct. DKC, SMW, Earthbound (a total of 10 games including these) are available from the start.
  • Super Mario Party 2 announced for release next June
  • Animal Crossing gets another trailer
  • Indie/3rd Party reel
  • Direct closes with the reveal of Super Mario Odyssey 2; releasing next July.

weird it hasn't happened yet
I was shocked that Ubisoft skipped Keighley's gamescom show. Both Gods and Monsters and R6 Quarantine are due for this fiscal year, and none have shown gameplay yet. Then again, EA is waiting until tomorrow to reveal a new PvZ shooter for this year, so marketing cycles have gotten shorter and shorter.

Umm this is big news. We though it was an old Ip. It sounds like it’s a new IP.

that's interesting.

Now I think it's a smaller Int Sys game. Or a small game from Arzest or NST.
