Some gamers look down on the Nintendo Direct broadcast. What, they say, to catch an adult among these cartoons and the pink rays of good? However, in 2019, the stream received a “18+” die for good reason, because, among other things, DOOM Eternal and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt were lit on it. Both, frankly, not for younger age.
The publisher began with the announcement of new characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – the list includes characters from the Dragon Quest series. Then Nintendo recalled the Western release of Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age for Switch.
The continuation of the sweet horror Luigi's Mansion and a new turn-based RPG based on Dark Crystal (brought by Netflix), as well as remakes of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and Trials of Mana were broadcast . But the most interesting and expected announcement, of course, was the publication of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Switch. Old rumors were true. Porting is handled by Saber Interactive ,
Another surprise is the announcement of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 for the Nintendo handheld console. Both ports will ship this fall. Direct also surprised the third No More Heroes , the new Contra and the remake of the cult Panzer Dragoon , which debuts in the winter.
Special mention was given to Pokemon: Sword & Shield , Daemon X Machina , Fire Emplem: Three Houses , Astral Chain from Platinum Games and an adventure based on the Marvel Universe – the third part of Ultimate Alliance.
In addition to the new "Olympic Games" and Animal Crossing , the publisher announced the brainchild of game guru John Romero, responsible for the 1993 DOOM. The new project of the person who changed the industry is called the Empire of Sin . The strategy is dedicated to mafia disassembly, and it will be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2020.
Closer to the finale, the performances featured a trailer of releases, which will soon delight the fans of the Big N. Including – remaster Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Minecraft Dungeons, TES: Blades, My Friend Pedro, DOOM Eternal, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, The Sinking City, Just Dance 2020 and Dauntless. Toward the close of a Japanese company issued a movie with the heroes of the Banjo Kazooie series – they will be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
But who ends the conference with such trifles? That Nintendo staff involved heavy artillery. Announced that they are already working on the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild – one of the most highly rated games in history. The release date of the upcoming hit, of course, is still unknown.
Contrary to the public's skepticism, Nintendo did not lose face and acted very versatile. Yes, Bayonetta 3 wasn’t delivered, but what are the reprints of “Wild Hunt” and the announcement of the next Breath of The Wild! What do you think about the presentation of the Japanese giant?
