Fans have been clamoring for a traditional Nintendo Direct for some time now, over 200 days have passed since the last traditional one, and many were hoping that one would come this week on the heels of last weeks Indie World event. Their prayers were answered as a Nintendo Direct “Mini” came about with no warning from Nintendo. We’re not sure why it’s a “mini” Direct when it was 30 minutes in length basically…but we’ll just roll with it.

There was lots of news to take away from the event. Including the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, certain new games that are available right now for you to purchase, classic titles from 2K like Bioshock and Borderlands coming to the Switch, a deep dive into Bravely Default 2, a tease of what’s coming in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and more!
