Predictions for the 9.13 Nintendo Direct

Nindies September 2017

Today, Nintendo has announced a 45 minute Direct, focusing on both Switch and 3DS Software, for Wednesday, September 13th. It’s a safe bet that we will see plenty of Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors, PokeMon Ultra Sun/Moon, and Xenoblade 2 as those are the big headliners going into the fall. However, 45 minutes is a good chuck of time so it is likely we will see much more that just that. This will probably be Nintendo’s last big showcase for the holiday push so outside of those headlining games, here are 5 games that I think we will probably get some information on.

It’s Time to Bring 3DS Games to Switch

H2x1_News_NintendoSwitchUnboxingAs we sit on the eve of the Metroid: Samus Returns launch date, I cannot help but think about the Nintendo Switch and it’s place in the Nintendo Ecosystem. The Switch is the first console ever to straddle the line of a Home Console and a Portable Console. In an effort to continue sales of the 3DS, Nintendo has yet to join these two libraries. I understand the initial thought behind a continued support for the 3DS, but what I don’t understand is why both consoles continue to be segregated? This is not a win for fans, of either machine, and it doesn’t appear to be a win for Nintendo either. Personally, I think it’s time that Nintendo starts releasing its new software on both the 3DS and Switch.


4 Reasons I Sold My Nintendo Switch

I was on board with the Nintendo Switch starting with the reveal in late 2016. As a portable gamer first, how could I not be ecstatic for the first home and portable hybrid console? Leading up to the release of the system, it felt like Nintendo had nailed just about everything. The price was good, the Launch lineup was strong (with Breath of the Wild, Shovel Knight, and Snipperclips), and most important, the design was great. It was honestly the first time I was looking forward to a Nintendo launch since the GameCube. Now, 3 months in, the dust has settled, and my Switch is on the way to Pennsylvania to meets its new owner. What changed? How does a person go from an 11 on the excitement scale to not even registering? I decided to break it down into a list, so here are the 4 reasons why I sold my Switch.
