F-Zero for the Switch but it's open world and everyone hates it, Animal Crossing that has the largest amount of space for the village yet with a beachfront of all the shops between the two areas, Switch Online gets the bonus of a free updated version of the 2005 Star Wars Battlefront II, the announcement of Nintendo World Resort - a business management simulation where you build and manage a Nintendo themed resort, Luigi's Mansion and Mario and Luigi 3DS ports are also coming to the Switch, the announcement of Mario Kart Doube Dash remastered for Switch with all new tracks and characters - including the Renegade Roundup battle mode, a sports minigame collection that puts Go Vacation to shame, then finally the Smash announcement. My wish is finally granted as Jenson Button makes it into the character roster with Lewis Hamilton as an echo fighter. Either that or Ronnie o'Sullivan with John Virgo as the echo.
That's how you build a completely nonsense Direct prediction that somehow seems good.
I won't let myself think about Animal Crossing too much. I'd be nervous about a Switch version... would it be more like the excellent "Welcome amiibo!" update for the 3DS, or the disappointing Pocket Camp for mobile?
Will hopefully be home to catch the 23:00 start tonight. As ever, I''m hoping for surprises but I expect more news about Smash, Pokemon and Luigi's Mansion.
We are off the back of a Smash focused Direct so I doubt this will be the same (most we will get is a character reveal or a reveal of the new mode)
In terms of what we will see? I expect
