Nintendo dropped a new Nintendo Direct Mini out of the blue, and boy howdy did it have some huge announcements in this tiny package. Check out the video below for a few new announcements to keep you excited and a couple surprises that may drop your jaw.
Nintendo Direct Mini Announcements
Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda
Cadence of Hyrule dropped last year to overwhelming praise, and it looks like they are going to be keeping this game relevant for a little bit longer with 3 additional DLC packs. The packs contain the following;
- DLC Pack 1: Character Pack – Five newly added characters join the ensemble. Impa, Aria, Shadow Link, Shadow Zelda, and Frederick will help to create new experiences with their unique abilities.
- DLC Pack 2: Melody Pack – 39 songs will be added including remixed versions of already existed songs allowing you to jam through Hyrule even more!
- DLC Pack 3: Symphony of the Mask – Play as the mysterious Skull Kid in this new storyline that will help you adventure on a brand new map, and this alone comes with new music to add to the catalog as well.
The Season Pass will be available later today, so be ready to dive in! This pass includes bonus costumes for Link and Zelda. Also, a physical version of the game that includes all of the DLC will release October 23rd. Get ready to pre-order that one as well!
Rogue Company is a third-person online multiplayer shooter by Hi-Rez Studios. Get ready to lay waste with an arsenal of weapons and guns. You can play in Ranked matches for intense competition, casual matches with friends, or even compete with AI opponents for some local challenges.
Cross platform play and progression will be available from day one on the Switch, along with support for motion-control gaming. Be on the look out for lots of content and announcements for Rogue Company as it drops.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is another attempt by 2K Games to bring WWE gaming to the Nintendo Switch. It looks to be like a fun arcade version of previous titles, and it surprisingly has a fun and entertaining feel about it.
The game launches on September 18, 2020, and you can find more information at WWE2KBATTLEGROUNDS.com.
Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster
Fans have been dying for a Shin Megami Tensei game on the Nintendo Switch, and this is definitely one that was being begged for. It looks like Atlas has finally listened to its fans and have dropped a bombshell with the announcement of this HD Remaster.
It looks like we will not have to wait too long either, as the game is scheduled to drop in Spring of 2021. But wait, that was not the only announcement from Atlas…
Shin Megami Tensei V
This blew all the other announcements away. Out of nowhere, Atlas decided to announce that not only is Shin Megami Tensei V a reality, but it will be a simultaneous worldwide release in 2021. That is huge for players that do not live in Japan, as Shin Megami Tensei games tend to stay in their home country and very slowly make their way to western countries.
A time for creation has come! Check out more information at atlus.com/smt5.
