    Yeah that's all gonna be a matter of preference. There's definitely a decent-sized segment of gamers that prefer the element of surprise, and another segment who hate surprises. Either method is fine with me personally, and I think Nintendo only went in that direction this year because two games isn't enough to fill a Direct anyway (with the New Pokemon Snap being announced during a Pokemon-specific event).

    Meh, to announce the absence of something just seems somewhat obtuse and/or unnecessary from my perspective. But I can understand the general sense of disappointment from dedicated "Nintendo-only" fans, and I suppose some sort of generalized statement about delays stemming from COVID couldn't hurt.

    Where the hell is metroid ? It's been over 5 years now I think since the title teaser. Guess they don't seem to care anymore since 2020 has been the Wii U all over again

    It reset development entirely in 2019. I wouldn't expect to see any real footage about it until next year.

    Boring presentation in my opinion.

    I mean... the entire Puyo Puyo community probably collectively shat themselves when they announced Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, and plenty of people have been begging for stuff like Taiko no Tatsujin to get more games localized
    your grammar is poor, your view of "everyone" is a small bubble of ultra-normies, and your statement is factually incorrect

    If E3 still went ahead this year, a lot of the titles in this presentation would've been shoved into a "sizzle reel".

    Geez. People are so negative about Nintendo just talking about games that are going to release on Switch.
    I mean, before these Minis, they just uploaded trailers without context. Now they put a little effort into presenting stuff and everyone riots, because they're not showing Mario games.

    This is Nintendo we're talking about. Anything that's not over thirty minutes long is a waste of time. I expect what happened during the first three years of the Switch's life.

    If I had to pick any of these announcements that stood out to me. It'd be Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. The first one was fun. If only to have two of my favorite games in one. The boxing game looks okay, I suppose. World of Tank Blitz is... Well.. It's yet another mobile game being ported to other systems. Is that an issue? I guess not? Square's pack seems fun, but I'm actually getting tired of them back porting much older games to fill the catalog. Then the rhythm games and Just Dance... Meh.

    Eh, the Saga collection is about the only thing I care about. Nothing else interests me, also why the hell are they stealth dropping these things? Who's the moron in charge of PR at NOA?
