Ok so I don’t feel like watching the direct because I knew gbatemp would give me the details to the whole thing. Based on the first post on this thread though I don’t see any mention of sega online features but n64 has it. I want to assume that n64 will have online play but maybe I’m wrong on this one but I will base this on my retroarch experience, can’t remember the time I really tried this but did retroarch ever have smooth netplay for n64, if it doesn’t I find it hard to believe n64 will have an actual netplay kind of feature. I know october is around the corner and I’ll know for sure what to expect but I won’t really pay for this unless it’s $10 or less more for the extra family plan features since it obviously not going to be free for the actual family plan users like it should be. I would have kind of understood if they wanted a little extra for the individual plan users.

nice, i didn't know there was even a direct, oh well.
it was hmm, okay. not much here.
the kirby game looks fun, kinda like super mario oddessy, but with kirby instead.
dread is well, we've seen so much of it from the reports and such, it's coming so soon, lol.
but finally a AAA metriod game for switch! what it needed, as there was no AAA metriod game on switch until dread was annocneced, (Metriod NES and Super metriod on NSO) don't count as they are ports).

i mean a switch exclusive metriod game, and dread fits this exactly. :)
