One day we really need to find out what happened to Retro the past 5 years.
Tbh it was Mario specifically, cool that Microsoft let Nintendo use Banjo but Mario is a huge, huge franchise thats the difference i was expecting a little more with that phrase
Banjo is a character from a dead IP that MS bought wholesale along with the rotting corpse of Rare. I'd hardly call it a "Mario on Playstation" announcement.
It is taking awhile isn't it :^(
Zell called BOTW2 in 2020 and Link's Awakening this year
That's cool that you think that, but it's literally a first party character on a competitor's crossover game. Whether you guys don't think it, it's completely a "Mario on Playstation" moment.
Because they sell a lot and are quite popular
They're doing MP4 and that's all they're doing. There's definitely a story behind what they "were" doing before though.
I... I just want it badly on the console to play it anywhere But that would mean they would have to scale back the visuals. Plus, it would add more newcomers. I know it’s a pipe dream lol.
I'm a huge AC fan, but I really wasn't disappointed by the delay as much as I thought I would. I feel like the game blew me away where the delay didn't affect me. The thing that 1st worried me was how crafting was being worked into the game. But, I rewatched the trailer and the treehouse gameplay and fell in love with the game. I was worried that these elements would take away the feeling of the franchise, but they didn't. I'm all for them taking as much time as they need to make this game perfect. I just needed to see a trailer and some gameplay to get me through the year. I'm slightly worried that the museum/shopping buildings and special characters might not be back. But, I'm 110% sure they will be since Isabelle is basically the icon of the franchise. I think they're waiting until the next direct in the fall to show it off. Right now, I'm supremely pleased with the game and the direct.I liked what we saw from 3rd party announcements/reveals, like NMH3. I think they carried the Direct until the last reveal -- meaning BotW2. Nintendo, minus BotW2, felt underwhelming. Updates on known things, which is fine, but it felt like too much repeat on stuff we have seen or know. No release date for LM3 was an odd decision and delaying Animal Crossing, though suspected, was disappointing but not terribly damaging to their E3 show or even 2019 lineup. I still feel that 3rd parties are the stars of the Nintendo Direct and Nintendo E3 overall.
No real surprise games. Suda had hinted heavily at NMH3 so I was expecting it. It was a cool announcement though.I wasn’t at all enthused.
But I realize my expectations are the real problem:
Was hoping for a Neir Automata or FFXV port, but instead got Last Remnant and Crystal Chronicles (both are nice but again, my misplaced expectations).
When I saw Panzar Dragoon, I hoped it was PD Saga Remaster, but nope.
Saw Resident Evil and hoped for the recent 7, but no... it was the criticized 5 and 6.
No Ubi (except Lets Dance) no Activision, no EA, no ports of 2020 heavy hitters, but THAT is to be expected.
What really got me is that I expected more first party representation due to the focus on Switch over 3DS/NSW, but I guess those will eventually show up in the year round Directs when they’re ready.
I’m not complaining, BOTW and NMH3 were shown, so there’s that.
Nintendo has kept a very short leash on their Wii U ports. They announce them only a few months before release, usually within the window of the that Direct. With LM3 undated, a September Direct is guaranteed. Nintendo is publishing 9 games in the next 4 month, they were never going to throw away a port in the timeframe. October and Dec-Feb are wide open.
Sweet, thanks for the scoop! Also makes sense for them to use E3-time to focus the spotlight on their newer properties.Nintendo has kept a very short leash on their Wii U ports.

Well I got sour news for you - there's no way we're getting SNES or beyond included at the current price tier. I think $20/year will never give you more than NES.
Yes, that’s the feeling I had as well. And maybe it’s due to wanting a few megatons or mention of games not announced or alluded to previously.No real surprise games. Suda had hinted heavily at NMH3 so I was expecting it. It was a cool announcement though.
I think there could have been more. What has the Mario Kart Team been doing? Are we getting a new racing game or Mario Kart? 8 came out in 2014 and 8D in 2017.
No Paper Mario or Mario Sports game.
No new IPs.
I’m hoping Nintendo is holding back, which may be the case, considering they only have one first party game slated for 2020 so far.
