    What could Nintendo possibly have to show us today, with their announcement of a Treehouse Live event, and the tease of a brand new Wayforward title? We'll find out imminently, when the broadcast begins. Stay tuned to this thread, or watch as the stream airs, in order to see what mystery Nintendo will unveil.

    We get to see some gameplay for Paper Mario: The Origami King, as promised. He gets abilities to solve puzzles, as well as partners throughout the journey. You can use your hammer to smash things to collect confetti to patch up holes throughout the world for coins.

    Battles take place in rings, where you want to line up your enemies for attack bonuses. You can use coins to extend the timer for setting up your rings in fights. Lining up every foe will give you a 1.5x multiplier for damage.

    You don't need to solve the battle ring puzzles, but it's essential to getting through fights fast. You can use 999 coins to heal and have Toads partly solve the ring for you. Boss fights will take place on a ring where you move yourself along it to better position yourself for attacks. You want to build a path to the innermost ring.

    The big secret reveal is a new Bakugan game.

    Bakugan: Champions of Vestoria, launches November 3rd.

    An original story based on the series. Real-time RPG battle system with tons of quests. There are factions. Each Bakugan has 4 ability slots. There's 80 Bakugan types. Your monsters fight in an arena while you throw energy cores on the ground to help your Bakugan.

    Is the audio way out of sync with the video for anybody else?

    Why did they make the price of things so massively over-inflated? Why not just give the player less coins overall and make the price 99 coins for something like this instead?

    Dislikes are slowly increasing, unsurprisingly

    Welcome back to 2006

    I get that WayForward picks up these licensed contracts to pay the bills but who thought making this shovelware a big secret reveal was a good idea?

    even MY attention was caught when Nintendo mentioned the new wayforward game, i have never played a wayforward game. the way they just kinda slipped it into the treehouse announcement made it seem like it'd be a huge reveal. not bakugan. as soon as i saw that logo i swiped outta the stream.

    To play devil's advocate here for a moment: there was and still is a ton of disappointment surrounding Pokemon Sword and Shield, so I can understand why they believe there's an audience out there searching for an alternative. That said, this looks every bit as soulless and shallow as SwSh is, so I'll be sticking with Persona and TemTem for my fix of "Pokemon-like" mechanics.

    That Treehouse Live was trash. Also Bakugan? I rather just take a remake of all the "Tales of" games instead...
