That was a pretty good Direct, nothing too exciting for me but very interesting games to keep in mind for next year: Triangle Strategy, New Kirby and Bayonetta 3.

I'm really glad that Voice of Cards is coming soon, gotta try that demo. And Deltarune Chapter 2!

Better than how DK transitioned to 3D, yeah I said it. DK64 could've been so much better had they not padded out the collecting.
Well if you're talking about the Country games they're more 2.5D and sidescrolling rather than 3D, so it's not gonna work. As they need to come up with something different for it to work in the 3rd dimension, in DK's case.

DK64 had too many things to collect and backtracking. It's too much.

So since Banjo Kazooie is coming to Switch Online should we eventually expect the rest of the Rare games from the N64 era eventually? Never played Tooie, Jet Force Gemini or DK 64.

Also its odd that Sega is releasing Sonic 2, but not Sonic 1.

Those weren't exactly traditional 3D titles. This is the first one with full blown power ups and fleshed out levels.

Sonic 2 is better than 1, 1 is just...slow

And sonic 3 is better than both combined. Neither fact changes that it's odd not to release the games in order.

I don’t like these slow rollouts though. Feels like a big tease. Just release your entire library you intend to make available on day one.

At least now we know why they delayed the "localization" of rf5, at least I finished the definitive jp version with no bs attached. :P

Holy, a new Kirby game, Actraiser remake, N64 and Genesis Online, and KOTOR coming to Switch! This is magical! Wonder how they got the rights to Banjo-Kazooie though.
