    What a waste of a direct! I hope it causes their stock to drop further!!!!! I want news on the other titles, NoA claims they have in the works for 2018 n the first half of 2019. I don’t mean indie titles either!!!!! I want to hear news on the classic games included with Nintendo Switch Online, as well as thier release date! Not more news on the always over hyped fake fighter that is SSB! I bet I am not the only switch owner, waiting for the switch drought to end!

    I'll sum it up for ya'll.

    New players, new moves, new costumes, new levels, new attacks, and improved Amiibo support. And that's a wrap.

    News on Metroid, Kid Icarus, Ice Climbers, Balloon Fight sequels highly desired. After all, the last Kid Icarus come back was anti-epic.

    Just because you dont like the games releasing this year it doesnt mean there is a drought.

    Does anybody read locations?
    This already happened at E3, when can we get a direct NOT focused on Smash? I mean, I want it, but I also want other stuff.

    Mostly indie games. Most indie games are either clones and/or shovelware. So yes the switch as a drought!

    lmao if you think A. all the switch has gotten this year is indie games, or B. that most indie games are shovelware, you're either purposefully ignorant or just stupid.

    Hoping it covers some different titles, even if just for a couple minutes.

    Seriously? I'm starting to hate Smash now, too much of this game in such a short period of time. I'm sick of it. When will we have a regular and nice Nintendo Direct? Without Smash in it.
