Dude. There was a Nintendo Direct mini today??? Why does this happen while I'm asleep?!?!— Vinny Sarconi (@ViconiShow) March 26, 2020
A lot of fans were expecting more.
That Nintendo direct wasn’t really that good considering we still don’t know any of Nintendo’s plans throughout the year besides xenoblade and dlc/updates for already existing games
Although spring man was my most wanted newcomer since smash was announced plz plz plz spring man— JST | Perks (@Splat_Will) March 26, 2020
Some fans seemed to love it, though!
WAIT HOW DID I MISS BURNOUT PARADISE WHAT. Finally a dumb, fun racing game on the switch!
Also Xenoblade oh my GOD it looks GREAT. #NintendoDirect— Icarus (@Icarus_18) March 26, 2020
It even managed to convince some gamers on the fence.
Okay that tears it, I am going to get myself a Switch, not this pay day but maybe the next one. I would like to play the new animal crossing and Bravely Default 2 looks ace. Yeah I shouldn’t have watched that Nintendo Direct Mini - it all look so good— 🏳️🌈 Phil 🏳️🌈 (@PhilboM) March 26, 2020
...there are people pretending to like Animal Crossing?
Wish they announced something about Rune Factory 5 in today's Nintendo Direct so I'd get to stop pretending I like Animal Crossing— not veg (@veggiesubs) March 26, 2020
ARMS 2: ARMageddon will be announced in the next Nintendo Direct around May/June, featuring some new characters, and some aged-up versions of the old ones. Max Brass is dead and Spring Man has taken up his name and title as Commissioner. The new mascot of ARMS 2 is in smash bros.— Xananab Stan Account (@sarazarann) March 26, 2020
People don't seem to mind double-dipping on older games when it comes to Switch.
Oh, Bioshock for Switch? Yeah I can play it again. #NintendoDirect— Simon Valentine (@SimonValentine1) March 26, 2020
Every little bit helps.
The nintendo direct today wasn’t that great, but it was good enough to occupy the time of being quarantined.— Super Devon (@SuperDevon28746) March 26, 2020
