    Maybe they'll finally make portal 3 if this sells well.

    Kind of shock that Valve remembered consoles exist. Maybe they will remember how to make games next.

    The direct is really only a little more than halfway through and it has been absolutely packed. Crazy some of the stuff showing in this Direct.

    Mario Strikers was such a nice surprise for me. :D

    Wasn't the first game I expected to get a legit hd-2d treatment, but also never played it so I will take it!

    Maybe do the same for Treasure of Rudras though.

    Live A Live is at least a remake. So that's neat.

    Odd the new Wii Sports isn't using Miis.

    Edit: Never mind, they're in there.

    Hey, I was just wishing the other day that Nintendo would make a new Wii Sports for Switch but wasn' t sure what they would call it. :P

    This actually makes me quite happy.

    Oh god's death, blood and ruin, you don't have to spend time on this. Just make the entire Direct shorter.

    Switch Sports is a huge deal. Love it or hate it as a more oldschool or hardcore gamer, but that shit is immensely popular.

    Apparently you have to be 16 bit or under to get a real remake.

    Except for Final Fantasy.

    Because apparently fuck Final Fantasy. Enjoy your upscaled pixels, FF5/6 fans.

    Chrono Cross, yes, just port it, don't touch it!

    And Front Missions 1&2, this is quality classy stuff.

    I don't mind it. They are flying through the announcements on this direct so far.

    This comes out in April.

    I cannot believe how many games are coming out between now and June so far. It's crazy! :bigfrown:

    Does feel a bit bitter FF6 pixel remaster is about to hit, and Live a Live gets the treatment everyone wanted it to get.

    It really feels like Square absolutely hates FF6 where the fans love it. They give it almost no special treatment at all.

    Cross looks like Square finally learned how to use an AI upscaler for the backgrounds. The soundtrack is compeltely re-recorded as well. Doesn't look like any real gameplay or content changes though. (Maybe new translation?)

    Wii Sports is probably up there with Minecraft and Fortnite in "biggest games to ever exist", so yeah, much as I'm not interested, spending time on it makes sense.

    So happy to play Earthbound and Beginnings on the Switch. I never finished Beginnings on the Wii U and will be much more likely to play it on the NSO.

    I'm actually more happy to get more courses for Mario Kart 8 rather than a new game.

    This direct is making me so happy! :D:D

    It'll be free for NSO expansion pass holders. That is pretty awesome.

    Only took them 4-5 years to make some DLC for the best selling game on their system.

    I really want to grab that on switch but I've never been able to justify the price. Should see if I can snag a second hand copy somehow

    But I'm super stoked about Earthbound. It's been too long since I've played through it.

    You literally have to buy tens of millions copies of a game to make Nintendo consider making DLC for it.
