...can we get this even if it doesn't air? An alt reality take on the final June Direct solely for the Switch :laughing:

No... :p

But, here is my revised prediction...

Nintendo Direct Tuesday, 18th June, 2024 at 17:00 UK time.

For real this time... probably.

Violence!? My word! What has become of videogames these days!?

Yeah, it's probably gonna be in the Direct. The past few weeks for the Switch has been a bit calm. But you know, always a calm before the... well, it's end of the console's life, so not a storm. More of a slightly windy day.

As announced during today's Nintendo Direct, a new golden Hyrule variant of the Switch Lite is due for release on the same day as Echoes of Wisdom -- 26th September. 

Being bundled in with NSO+Expansion Pack makes complete sense and is very smart -- I wonder if that gives us an idea of how Nintendo plan to avoid a price cut this holiday season?

Oh that's interesting! Don't think they've ever done an NSO Expansion Pack bundle before?

Means that you get a LOT of Zelda bundled in for "free" with the console... at least your first hit anyway ;)

Reynatis is shaping up pretty well, imo. The website describes how it works (swapping between Liberation and Suppression modes). What I can add is that the music and atmosphere are pretty great and most importantly, it actually feels good to play. Very pleasantly surprised. 

It's not all in Tokyo as there is a portal to a forest area. So I'm sure more can be expected.

Also, if the TWEWY crossover wasn't happening, you can just tell the game is tailor-made for it. It should be a perfect coming together.

Pyoro has been caught by Nintendo's ninjas.

Quote

During the company's annual shareholder meeting on Thursday – transcribed by X user NStyles – Nintendo directors were asked specifically about a recent report that several recently leaked Nintendo announcements allegedly originated from a Google employee who accessed private videos in the Switch maker's YouTube account.


Responding, the directors said they were aware of the media reports and claimed that Nintendo has been working with external companies to diagnose security leaks.


The company has introduced new measures to its security systems, it said, and it's also working to educate employees about IT security.

You could tell something was up when they didn't tease everything in the Direct. Gotta say, I'm pretty happy that the leakers are being pursued and silenced. Makes watching a Direct much more exciting when you don't know what's on the cards.

Nintendo still has work to do though. A long-time member of Era mentioned the Zelda and Mario & Luigi game well before the Direct hit. Even got the Brothership name right.

Good deal for those who buy digitally.

Oh balls. I want Mario & Luigi, but I'm still on the fence about Zelda until I'm certain it's not an open world!

Might be time to browse the eShop...

EDIT: Nope, nothing I want that I don't already have.
Great, now I run the risk of buying a voucher and having nothing to use it on...

Nintendo of Japan tends to release an online magazine/brochure every year the one for Summer 2024 has arrived. You can check out the English version here.

https://www.nintendo.com/jp/software/feature/magazine_2024summer/index_en.html?device=pc&page=1

I love it. Yeah, it's just advertising their games but it does it in such a way that makes me nostalgic for old gaming magazines. It's put together really well and I would so snap up a physical version of it if it was made available over here.

I've been doing a much better job than I typically do this year of picking up games I'll get to ASAP rather than filling up my (digital and physical) shelves, but a Nintendo Switch first-party bundle with the games at £25 a pop? 

Yeah, ordered, zero hesitation on my part :peace: thanks for sharing Ashley!

I actually started making a list of Switch games I hadn't picked up a couple of months ago and wanted to at some point, but as soon as the list started to get a little long gave up because of the massive investment it would clearly be. Think I'll try to make looking out for deals like these my main way of picking up those Switch games I haven't got to unless I urgently want to get to them!

It looks like they also had the same bundle but with Skyward Sword HD as well for £52.99?!? :o

https://www.currys.co.uk/products/nintendo-switch-super-mario-rpg-metroid-dread-and-the-legend-of-zelda-skyward-sword-hd-bundle-10266515.html

Unsurprisingly, sold out. :p

Absolutely insane deal! Thankfully (for my sanity) I already have Skyward Sword HD on my shelf, so don't feel bad about missing out :laughing: 

EDIT: the MK8D Booster Course Pass is only £8.97 from Currys. Which is a pretty great deal too!

I remember one of these mentioned something eerie happening on your in-game TV in the wee small hours on Animal Crossing. Whatever it was, I never saw it.

There's a couple of eerie things like that in AC, I know that one of the fossils, the head looking thing, it's eyes will glow at 3am.

Also the Spooky Wall or similar will have a figure moving about when you turn around. I think you need to turn the lights off.

I think I heard of the TV one...

Yup, looked it up 3:33am every Saturday on your in game TV.

That is fantastic, just as you mentioned it is just like old gaming magazines. And the pages for Nintendo World Championship reminds me a lot of Club Nintendo magazine from the late 80s

It's good it isn't a random occurrence, but still, pretty much no chance of seeing it without this knowledge! Sounds like the Spooky Wall thing is the only one of those you'd have a reasonable chance of spotting. AC is full of little flourishes.
