      @Smoke’emIfyagot’em ahh two old games, and fan made garbage from a transphobe lol. 😂😂😂

      Just let people be happy. These are games that people have waited a long time for. Ok.

    • Smoke’emIfyagot’em says:

      @Kyle Halpern nah I’m playing hogwarts, dead space and AOE2 but thanks for coming out

    • Kyle Halpern says:

      @Smoke’emIfyagot’em well then why don’t you go play something modern with great graphics. Like Forspoken in 4k. 😂

    • Brindle Stryker says:

      @El AF0 XD oh, 😅😎

    • El AF0 XD says:

      @Brindle Stryker I don’t have a good pc (laptop).The one I have has windows 7.I already bought a new one but it’s still shipping and arrives next week

    so glad ghost trick is finally getting the attention it deserves! it’s seriously one of my favourite games of all time

    • White Rabbit says:

      Other races in the universe are expanding their territories and become dangerous when they come to Earth.
      All human resources in the world must be trained as scientists before it is too late.
      If we reduce the population due to a lack of Earth’s resources, science will fall behind due to a lack of human resources, and we will be pushed out of the space race.
      Get resources quickly from other celestial bodies. Then we need to rapidly expand the number of celestial bodies.

    • Ta Tinh says:

      @Tea n ink Extremely cleverly designed puzzles, funny but deep and relatable characters, and the plot is insanely well-written, especially near the end. Really humorous but also touching and emotional. To sum up the gameplay, as a ghost, you can rewind time just before the death of a person and try your best to alter the environment slightly to save them and progress. Definitively one of the masterpieces of the DS era, but it’s quite unpopular somehow.

    • Ta Tinh says:

      To be honest, I would rather see a sequel than just an ported game. Yeah, I know the story has reached a complete and happy end, but Capcom can introduce a new story and new characters as well.

    • Kumail Syed says:

      @Tea n ink ofc! basically, you play as the spirit of this guy that like just died and forgets everything about who he is and what he was doing. you have the ability to manipulate objects, making them do things like open/close or turn on/off, and you can hop between objects as a spirit. you die at night and have until 7 am to find out about who you are and why you died before your spirit goes away forever. throughout the course of the game, youll find people who die due to a series of unfortunate events, so it’s your job to go back in time 4 minutes before these deaths and manipulate objects to save them! all the while, youll learn more about who you are and all the characters youll meet throughout the game.

      i played it over 4 years ago and i still get chills thinking about its story, i seriously highly HIGHLY reccomend it 🫶🫶

    • Tea n ink says:

      i wanna get it but without spoiling anything, can you say what you like about it?

    This was SUCH a good direct! This year is turning out to be one of the best years for new games in a long time for me, as pretty much all of my favourite game series are getting new games/remasters/ports!! I’m particularly excited about the new Fantasy Life and Professor Layton games (as I was NOT expecting new sequels for those two series) and Game Boy/GBA games coming to the Switch is a dream come true of mine as well! Pikmin 4 and LoZ: Tears of the Kingdom were great to see too, obviously. I’m basically just feeling all the hype right now. xD

  4. Chun-Xay 🔥 says:

    Nintendo has been on a mission to bring back Birdo in all the spinoffs and I am so here for it. Glad to see her back (and in all her colors no less which is rare!). I might just finally buy the dlc now.

    • denNES danMAKU says:

      @Kill Mii Nintendo called him a “he” in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic. The same in Super Mario Bros. 2 here in the west. I dont care if Nintendo says he’s a girl now. He will always be a dude that identifys as a girl for me.

    • K C says:

      birdo is a male that identifies as a women. Simple as that. And no its not like modern lbtq agenda, this litterally dates from the creation of the character and it was its official description in the 90’s. A male indientifying as a woman. the end

    • Sunshine Kid says:

      @BakuLan23 doesn’t matter what birdo identifies as, what is it really? I’ve heard it’s a male that dresses like a female and that they did that for humor. But there doesn’t seem to be any solid answer.

    • BIG Zymere Flucas says:

      It’s only about 25 dollars! It’s worth it!

    • BakuLan23 says:

      @Ellie it’s intentionally left ambiguous, but Birdo, at the very least, IDENTIFIES as a girl.

  5. Leena More says:

    Golden Sun, Metroid Prime Remaster and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga were the highlights for me! I’ve been waiting on Nintendo to bring these to the Switch for what seems like forever and to get all three announced in the same Nintendo Direct is nothing short of amazing! I’m so excited! Thank you Nintendo!

  6. Sam Kelly says:

    I love how certain games like Tomodachi Life suddenly explode in popularity and then a bunch of people become desperate for a sequel, to be honest I really hope it happens in the future, that game was so fun

  7. RayRay Lahb says:

    I’m actually excited for a lot of these titles tbh! But the new professor Layton and ghost trick port is honestly the cherry on top of everything and all I could’ve asked for 🥰

  8. Larzarus33 says:

    I am so happy we are FINALLY getting a new Fantasy Life game! I’ve waited 9 years for this day and didn’t think it would ever become a reality

    • IAmBonnet~💕 says:

      Yeah, I’m happy for that too. I can’t wait to play it! Fashion dreamer and Samba de amigo also look fun, these 3 were the highlights for me!😄😊💖❤️💕💞

    • Psykel says:

      Indeed! Between Zelda, Octopath and Fantasy Life, 2023 will be quite the year for the Switch!

    • Urban Harmon says:

      Damn right, loved that game as a kid, only issues with it was that pacing was kinda crap and the dialogue (IMO) went by way too slowly for my liking, but other than that… a really great, underrated gem of an game!

      …Now if only they can port Gurumin to the Switch…

    • Saa says:

      I was excited until it showed the gameplay, it looks so…ugly and boring 😭

  9. Jen says:

    So excited to see Fantasy Life and Professor Layton making a comeback. It was so amazing to see. Also looking for Octopath Traveler II a lot.

    Edit: Ghost Trick also! I absloutely adored this game!

  10. Matthew Carlson says:

    I’m actually super happy with this direct. a bunch of good looking rpgs, Kirby, a minish cap port along with my childhood mario kart game, and tears of the kingdom trailer?? Most excellent 👌🏻
