  1. 17 years… 17 years ago a famous Bear and Bird were captured by a giant X logo and made them a sort of blocky versions of them.

    Today, 11 June of 2019, those Bear and Bird were back to life thanks to the strong request of fans. The heart of fans made him come back to his beloved friends and with those with us the future is secured.

    Thank you all for make this happen. Thank you.

  2. Let’s be honest here, this E3 direct has to be one of the best so far I’ve seen from Nintendo.
    The games shown are all pretty good-looking and seems to play very nicely.
    The Dragon Quest Smash trailer was really epic while the Banjo one was pretty adorable. :]

      1. I don’t really like this whole “winning” E3 things and the console war but I have to say, Nintendo was by far the best.

    1. Pretty good looking? So many of the 3rd-party titles looked absolutely awful visually. Extremely bad framerates, low resoultion, just straight out bad.
      Nintendo’s own games looked really good though for sure, except for Fire Emblem with the weird ass choppy framerates in the cutscenes.

    2. The best part about this directx they killed it with a 3rd party franchise character for a fighting game.

      They didnt even show Bayonetta 3. They got that saved. But the fact they revealed Zelda sequal and dont have to pay $350 to play. Damnnnnnnnnnn

      How rare is that?

  3. It was an overall OK direct if I put my biased love to Nintendo on the side. Was some cool surprises like NMH 3, Conta & BOTW sequel; but couldn’t find myself getting to hype for games I knew about. This doesn’t discredit them of still being good game; I was just looking for more especially on games really want more details on like bayo 3 etc etc.

    Like

  4. Banjo-Kazooie is the top highlight this Direct- against near-impossible odds, they made it in.

    Unfortunately, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the only other game shown off that I’m really interested in. I’m into Sword/Shield, Mario Maker 2, and of course the Breath of the Wild sequel, but those weren’t really discussed. They burned me out with all the JRPGs in the beginning with Hero for Smash Ultimate (I could do without him, but I already bought the pack) and then actual Dragon Quest then Trials of Mana and the Mana collection.

    …Are we EVER going to get a new F-Zero? Nintendo has to know there’s demand for one.

    E3 2019: 5/10 (BK alone accounts for 3 of that).

      1. I dont know but it gets depressing every E3 when we never see him. We could have a least a CGI or something even if they dont want to show real gameplay….something

  5. The Animal Crossing delay really pierced my heart. I’m Glad they showed the game footage but ugh, it may take me a while to grieve. ;(((

    As for the rest, it was actually pretty good…
    –IDC about Smash DLC but Banjo was a pleasant surprise.
    –Link’s Awakening looks good, the style is growing on me and I’m more than likely going to buy it.
    –Luigi’s Mansion didn’t really interest me at first but I may have to consider it now.
    –Glad they didn’t spend too much time on PKMN, the clip was basically an AD for people to view the Treehouse
    –Was very worried that they were not going to show Animal Crossing because the direct was nearing 40 minutes, but thankfully, they did show stuff. It looks cool but I’m not sure if it will be a more traditional type of AC game though, it seems more like a survival type twist, I hope that does not limit the game’s possibilities… unless they were showing a different mode in the game… like that Deserted Island being a beefed up new ISLAND area, while having the traditional town mode too???
    –That BOTW2 tease was a such a great surprise, nobody expected that. When first viewing it everybody was saying it was DLC xD, I can’t wait for the game now. I’m sure Development will be quicker now that elements and assets are smartly being re used.
    –That’s all I can think of… If I forgot anything then it’s more than likely “forgettable” to me with not interests… Side note: I’m So glad no ports were showed, we needed some new stuff. :)
    .
    –It sucks for people hoping for Bayo3, Pikmin4, MarioKart9 and other game footage/updates but I hope you found something to be happy about. xD

  8. Best Nintendo E3 Direct in a long while. As for who won E3, I don’t give a shit anymore. This console war crap is just bland, boring, and outdated. Support whoever you bloody want. Just don’t kiss a company’s ass like a shill or fanboy and you’re good.

    I can’t wait to have Demon x Machina and Astral Chain. Those games are gonna be sweeeeeeet!

    For my feelings on BotW 2 if anyone bothers to care, go check out the article that focuses on that reveal. Of course, TL;DR: I can’t wait for it, I want 2-player co-op since Zelda is traveling with Link, I think we’re getting Ganondorf, and I want Link and Zelda to be a couple as I’m tired of Nintendo beating around the bush. It’s a fantasy game. Give me a little romance, damn it!

    I’m sure some people are pissed at how anime-esque Fire Emblem: Three Houses is turning out. I at least felt like I was watching a trailer for a 3D animated anime, anyway. In any case, I’m now officially all in with FE:TH!

    I highly recommend Witcher 3. Hopefully it runs well on Switch.

    While the 2 new DLC fighters of DQ Hero and Banjo-Kazooie were cool, I’m not really excited. So far, it seems all of my excitement for Smash Ultimate was taken by the inclusion of Ridley, the return of the Ice Climbers, Ganondorf having the Ocarina of Time design, and Zelda having the LttP design (still wish we got the BotW Zelda design, too, as an alternate outfit but oh well; maybe in a future Smash game when Nintendo realizes DLC outfits for characters isn’t such a bad idea. I’d pay 20-30 bucks for a shit load of alternate outfits for characters.) The only thing that would send me back into excitement for Smash Ultimate would be either Sora or Crono as a playable character as DLC.

    If The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics game is exclusive to Switch…

    Like

  9. It was a pretty average Nintendo e3 in my opinion. Was very glad to see fire emblem three houses, animal crossing and Luigi’s mansion 3 gameplay, and the Zelda being teased at the end was really cool.

    I’m also glad to see astral chain/ more of marvel alliance. All of those games interest me.

    I guess the problem for me is, nothing was really a surprise that I cared about. I knew about all of that stuff, minus what the new Zelda would look like.

    Oh and the smash characters. It was cool, but honestly not a gigantic fan of smash. I don’t lose my mind/ scream like most people seem to.

    I guess I was hoping for some bayo 3 news, maybe pikmin 3 or Metroid prime remastered would come out *cough* or idk, another game out of left field. Maybe a new ip?

    But overall, it wasn’t terrible. Showed off a bunch of good games, even if we knew most of them. Had surprised such as the smash and Zelda. So not bad. Met my expectations. 5/10

  10. Decent E3, some trash too (like Contra) but decent overall. I don’t see why people is so happy about a Banjo’s DLC, it’s just an(other) add on for Smash.
