    Boy did that direct suck donkey balls. I want meat and potatoes. Not salad. More remakes and sequels are disappointing.

    I thought it was one of the best directs so far. Certainly one that showcased more 3rd party games than most other directs.

    The only battle royale that matters! Anyone? No?

    Tetris 99 is actually quite addictive.

    It's seriously the battle royal game no one asked for but didn't know how much we needed it. It's a fantastic game. Classic Nintendo, churn out a qwirky game no one asked for and it becomes a hit

    Yep, I’m not joking, it actually looks very cool. Hope it comes to another platform at some point, because I’m not getting a Switch ..

    Too bad it's limited to Ninty and apparently the people who pay for the online service. if they released it on iphone or PS4 or PC, that would be great.

    edit: Oh and N is resurrecting Scalebound?

    From what I see nintendo published it, so at best you might see it ported to phones.

    They should follow PS4's ability to play f2p's without a sub at the very least. The game's reach is limited as it is with Switch exclusivity, let alone a sub. Maybe it will be the next breakout game on ios and android. It would be interesting if they actually do it on PC as a browser game requiring a ninty account.

    Don't get your hopes up guys. I've played Tetris 99 at all times of day and it's always full. Even at 4-5am in the morning I've only played with 98 other players. I gather that it's very popular right now.

    Here is a interesting Digital Foundry Video about the Switch and how Nintendo is boosting its performance with some of its games.

    It's a great game, a throw back in one sense and a step forward in another. If you enjoy old school JRPG's and even if you don't, it'll draw you in. But you might just enjoy it more if you do enjoy JRPG's.

    I've hardly played JRPG's so it's a new experience for me. I loved Persona 5 though. Chances are that I'll enjoy this too?

    A different experience but still a good one.

    Persona 5 is in my top five games of all time, I'd say this is in my top 30?

    Both are old school JRPG's with updates.

    I hate JRPG's. But the games unique art style, graphics, story, and some of the environments and gameplay mechanics actually drew me in. I would LOVE for Nintendo to do a Zelda game with this art style. Something like A Link To The Past would be amazing.
