I watched Nintendo Direct yesterday, my first one in awhile. I like the Nintendo Direct format but I prefer the normal format as oppose to the more special ones they’ve been doing recently on Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros and such. Overall, I think the presentation was okay, with little to get me excited about but there are a couple of things I would like to talk about, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Splatoon.
I’ve recently blogged about my opinions about the Legend of Zelda series and how they’ve changed once I started playing them in a different way. Here’s the before link and the after link. One of the most recommended titles I’ve gotten as a result of these two articles was Majora’s Mask. My problem with that game is the constant time restriction, as arbitrary time limits are a pet peeve of mine in video games. However, I’ve been willing to give it another shot and with the announcement of a port for the Nintendo 3DS, I think this is the perfect way to do that. I knew that Zelda fans have been asking for a Majora’s Mask remake for awhile now (three years I think?) so I’m glad that this game is coming. Also, that moon looks even more creepy than before.
Ever since Splatoon was announced at E3, it has been the most exciting game for me from Nintendo. It’s the kind of game that out of Nintendo’s comfort zone and it’s just refreshing to see a new IP from Nintendo. The video showed some more gameplay as well as announcing a single player mode and it all looked really fun. The paint roller weapon is a cool idea and the octopus enemies is an interesting idea. I wonder if there’s going to come up with a recognizable character for this game. I hope they have some kind of bot match as I don’t really play online that much. Surfing as squids and jumping huge parts of the map looks really fun and I’m eager to try this game out.
That’s pretty much all of my thoughts on this Nintendo Direct. Nothing else really grabbed my attention. Let me know what you thought of the latest Nintendo Direct in the comments section. Peace and Love, Gamers and Players! Colorwind Out!
Oh and those Mario and Luigi cat monsters in Monster Hunter 4? No. That’s just creepy. I know Nintendo’s been giving out their characters for other games but that was the line. Nope. Nope. NOPE!
