So much in one direct, and yet sadly I still want more. Although this will make me probably try and get another Switch to finally play Online with, because I haven't cared about it since Smash got decent modding going for it.

I got my wish of Kirby, just not in the form I expected...will hopefully be a fun ride though.

I wonder if those N64 Controllers will work with anything under bluetooth or if its strictly only meant for use with the Switch. If they can be used on more devices, then I might be tempted to jump on it.

Also, Nice to see Bayonetta 3 finally out there now!

Is it just me or pretty much all the rumors regarding the Switch in recent times has not come to fruition, its almost like Nintendo is doing it on purpose now. talk about the Switch Pro, now no mention of Game Boy coming to Switch online. Perhaps they are planning to sell some GB games individually before adding the GB to Switch online.
Jumping straight to N64, one can just hope that they would also add GB later on along with GC and Wii perhaps (not sure how well the Switch would handle these last 2) ?

Anyway that Sega Genesis plug is hilarious considering that Sega already released a 50+ genesis collection to the Switch and at first glance I already spotted some games that are on the collection that will also come to the Switch online.

So instead of a N64 classic, they just release them as digital and charge a monthly fee. Not a fan of that approach.

I never played any of the bayonetta games; i'm not overly fond of button mashers (it is one of those, correct?). But I know loads of people love the games, so i'm glad it's getting a release window

It was, as all the comments posted during temp-times are gone. My guess is it was backed up so it could be re-posted when the transition happened.

They really added an additionnal pack to have more roms ... Like, to them, their service is already worth the price. And they claim that they'll add more games ? Well, just like they did before so .....

And 50€/$ the controllers lmao what the actual f*ck.
I mean, 50€ the goddamn 3 buttons megadrive controller ?? Seriously ??? Just get an 8bitdo one with 6 buttons, half the price and at least as good if not better

As was mentioned above getting the Genesis games is no big deal since there was a release by Sega that gave access to dozens of genesis titles.

Now a Saturn pack would be incredible. Something about lost Saturn code for certain games is hindering that I think?

A moment of silence to all temporary posts.

Overall a mild Direct, some good stuff but nothing much for this year.
Square Enix's WORKING TITLE franchise keeps getting better, I might snag Triangle Strategy later.

Direct ruined By Xseed delaying the game to add crap that was not priority rewriting characters and not fixing the gameplay issues affecting rune factory 5

Depends what you mean by "Button mashers", if that's what you call Devil May Cry and MGR then yeah it's one of those. Usually simply mashing isn't really the best way to play them though, you want to concentrate on actually building decent and varied combos. If you only care about simply getting the game complete rather than getting highest rank on each stage you could just pick one combo and boringly spam it, at that point though you're missing a lot of what the games have to offer.
