If they didnt care about gameplay then why are Astral chain, NMH3 or daemon x machina exclusives?Meh, their games no longer have any challenge in them whatsoever. I never felt like I was stuck in LM2 and it took me a handful of tries to beat the "final gauntlet" in Odyssey. Every dungeon and puzzle shrine in Zelda treated you like it was your first. The LM3 Gooigi sections looked like puzzles intended for babies to solve. In the Fire Emblem clips all they show is anime garbage instead of actual gameplay because they know their audience. Animal Crossing is a franchise that has no gameplay whatsoever and was the premier 1st party game they showcased in the Direct. I don't need to explain how much of a joke Kirby and Yoshi games are these days. This is the harsh reality. No, Nintendo is no longer "about gameplay", those times are long gone. The Octo Expansion is the only thing that offers a decent amount of challenge and mechanical involvment. Have people here forgotten about games like Tropical Freeze? Heck, even Nintendo Land felt almost impossible to 100%, but I did it after 120 hours of enduring frustration and it felt so good. Getting Perfect Score in all of the Rhythm Heaven DS minigames was such an incredibly satisfying gameplay experience. That Nintendo is gone, and noone cares.
And about fire emblem, maybe us fans just want to learn a bit more about story and confirm If the leak is true. I'm sure we'll see more gameplay today or tomorrow during the treehouse.
