There's a Nintendo Direct reportedly scheduled for the 15th, in which we will hear nothing about a Super Mario Sunshine Remaster, so who cares????

also there's another mario out and it's fine, i guess

talk about your switches and how excited you are to not be playing metroid prime 4 on them when that game gets cancelled quietly

    the real reason i made this thread is because one of the best mario sunshine speedrunners is starting to have a big go at Odyssey, and is streaming a no reset run right now

    Odyssey speedruns are really exciting, and not just because there's a category called Nipple%

    I didn't realize the Direct's date had been announced, awesome

    Also Sunshine was really good but Galaxy and Odyssey are better

    Especially Galaxy

    Interesting, the colors are reversed from the Japanese release and the Walmart bundle. So you could get all pink and all green.

    They did that with the red/blue ones at launch too. It's a good move and a savvy way to help push people who were considering getting them over the edge

    The trick is to pitch a peice on the switch and have the company buy it for you

    Rumor going around that Grezzo is doing a Link’s Awakening remake for 3DS to be released within six months and announced at the upcoming Direct

    Supposedly they are adding BOTW elements, the gameplay will be somewhat open world

    Huh, as someone who likes BOTW that sounds... Not great? I dunno, it could be done well. Why not just make a new game rather than try and shoehorn in open-world stuff to a game that doesn't need it?

    Maybe it is a new game? Maybe it’s less a remake and more A Koholint Between Worlds

    @WeedLordVegeta I don't think that Direct for the 11th has been officially confirmed yet, at least I saw nothing on NoA's twitter about it

    I don't know what "open world" elements for a top-down 2D game would even mean but a LBW treatment for Link's Awakening would rule

    I need to adjust the date because it was the 15th in a leaked EA internal document but you're right in that there's no official confirmation

    Given that a huge chunk of BotW was originally designed as a top-down 2D game? I'm totally down to see what they think a BotW-inspired game should look like on 3DS.

    Link's Awakening has one of the most compact game worlds in the series. Nintendo's remakes are at their best when they do interesting things that differentiate the remake just enough not to obsolete the original. It's just crazy enough to work.

    I still want that sorta-tech demo of the original Zelda with BotW's environmental stuff to be a real 2D Zelda.

    Things I want from the direct:

    FE Switch announcement (More for @Janson than for me)
    DQXI Switch coming to the West
    Smash Bros Switch?
    Some more western RPGs coming to the Switch. I know Wasteland 2 is coming for it, but maybe, I dunno, Pillars of Eternity?

    I admit some of the desire for western games on the Switch is for the sheer novelty of having something like an Infinity Engine-ass game on the Switch.

    I feel like BotW's open world only worked well because of how well-realized the landscape was and how good it felt to move around in it. In a top-down 2D format you don't get any of that, so you're just left with a big empty open world with nothing to do. The 2D version of BotW would have been boring as sin.

    Oh yeah, VC stuff would be nice. I'm always down to rebuy Super Mario World and not play it.

    I got an SNES classic so there aren't many things I'd get on VC, but I still want the option, and it's bound to eventually have more titles than the classic

    A cool thing to do would be to officially release translated versions of some of the JRPGs that game to SNES in Japan but not to the west. Live-A-Life, Bahamut Lagoon, etc.

    So like can I get this on switch? Because I haven't had a 3DS since june.

    The BoW elements probably mean it'll be third person and the dungeon order will be removed. Maybe a total map redesign? They could toss epona in there too if its gonna use their OoT engine.

    I'm down for this.

    My wild guess is something Pokemon related is going to be announced, even if it's minor. I feel like it's too early to even get a name for the Switch RPG, but a port of Coliseum or the modern TCG would be nice.

    Also Youtube/Netflix, please.

    Well sure, obviously I'm commenting on the rumor. Studio that did the 3D Zelda ports on 3DS is probably working in that same engine
