Nintendo Direct in September: Was this the event we were all waiting for?

Nintendo Direct in September

Nintendo Direct is an event that all Nintendo Switch owners have certainly not been able to miss. There is no need to explain how awaited this format of the Kyoto house is, especially for the quantity and quality of the announcements that are generally made in its course. September, after all, is now an annual event for the live broadcast, and expectations were already very high, but what we saw left us surprised to say the least.

As many as 31 games were shown during Nintendo Direct on September 24th, many of which were presented for the very first time. An exorbitant number for a normal live broadcast, which could have been excellent even for an anniversary like E3 or Gamescom. Like all the other streams of this format before this one, however, it ended with few really interesting announcements for every single player. Let's be honest, not everyone will have rejoiced in Kirby and the Lost Land or Bayonetta 3, just as there are certainly people who can't wait to play Disney Magical World 2.

The peculiarity of Direct, and of this in particular is the ability to please everyone, even if only slightly. The magic formula that has differentiated this live broadcast from the past tens is especially the diversity of games shown, which vary both in genre and in the series to which they belong, up to even the artistic and sound sector. As we have already said, it is not possible to make everyone happy, but undoubtedly there are at least two or three announcements that will have made everyone happy. Whether it's the Monster Hunter Rise expansion or the live Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter, everyone had a reason to be happy.

After all, after the arrival of Nintendo Switch, the goal of the Big N is today even more the need to interest different user groups and ages: for the youngest, there are games like Disney Magical World 2, for JRPG lovers there is Shin Megami Tensei V, while more hardcore gamers will be happy to try the demo of Dying Light 2: Cloud Version in February. "Variety" was the keyword of this Nintendo Direct, the workhorse that brought the consequent success, considering that the replica is also in trend on YouTube.

The Colonel The diversity of the announcements made does not end only to cataloging by gender and target, but also on other elements that for some of us may be secondary, but which for others may not be. Nintendo has revealed that many updates are on the way for as many titles released in recent months: there are for Animal Crossing New Horizons, Mario Golf Super Rush, Hyrule Warriors: the era of calamity and even Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which was released nearly three years ago.

Although it may take a back seat, Nintendo indirectly takes the side of the players by showing excellent long-term support of its titles, both with updates and with always new content. The presence of these continuous changes to games already released is extremely important for Nintendo, even if it is a relatively young behavior: the desire to keep its titles slim is a way to keep users active and above all to "justify" the prices it wants to keep. high and that, in fact, remain anchored over 50 euros.

Tonight's Direct also shows us another reality, further proof that Nintendo is really believing in services. The announcement of the upgrade of Nintendo Switch Online, although it left more questions than answers, especially related to the price, undoubtedly everyone liked it. For the moment we still don't know when it will be available, nor at what cost, and some controversy has already started from those who think that it is not worth paying more to simply get two catalogs of old free games.

The truth, however, is very different and Nintendo is very aware of it: let's be honest, we are more than willing to pay more to play Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask or Banjo-Kazooie on our Switches. The Big N constantly leverages the nostalgia factor, it knows better than anyone that tears fall when we see the checkered foyer of Princess Peach's castle or the intro screen of Ocarina of Time.

This Nintendo Direct banged brings it in the face to all detractors of quantity and quality on Switch, and above all to those who defended the Inside Xbox or the State of Play with the sword. The Grande N shows itself confident with a line-up, four years after the release of the hybrid console, extremely valid and above all clear. What's even more incredible is that the company, despite having already planned big releases over the next few months, has revealed other games coming soon and laid the foundations for a truly amazing 2022.

The future premises for Nintendo Switch are extremely positive, despite the obvious technical disadvantage compared to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Next year we will be able to get our hands on Pokémon Legends: Arceus, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Kirby and the lost land, Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3 and who knows how many other titles of great depth. Also for this reason we ask you: are we really sure we need a Switch Pro?

You can book your Switch OLED on Amazon to prepare yourself for all the big titles coming out in the coming months.
