    Having watched the Direct, I'm only looking forward to Puyo Puyo Tetris, MK8, Minecraft(!!!) and Disgaea 5.
    ARMS lost my interest, just as street fighter.

    Wow, all the switch stuff is pretty mediocre. I didn't know they were this dense.

    Yet another underwhelming Direct. If Nintendo's E3 is anything like this then I see dark for the switch.

    Payday 2
    Yellow JoyCons
    And the Charger Pack were the only big surprises for me

    Splatoon 2
    Both Sonic games
    were good to see

    And MH stories looks intresting in my opinion

    hopefully its an actual rpg and not like the standard MH games
