Yesterday, Nintendo finally stepped forward with its first full Nintendo Direct in over a year. It was great to see so many announcements jam-packed in a 50-minute presentation. Though I won’t cover everything here, I will highlight a few trailers that really caught my attention!
The long-rumored Super Mario Nintendo Direct turned out to be true! Nintendo packed quite a bit into its 16-minute presentation. Won’t cover absolutely everything shown, but here are my notes on what I loved (and loathed) from this presentation!
Are you ready to expand your horizons? Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming soon! Based on what we saw in the recent Direct presentation, here’s what I’m most excited to experience in this upcoming Nintendo Switch game!
In case you were wondering, yes, this is inspired by my post earlier this week. Even so, I do take a slightly different approach to discussing the subject. Hope you enjoy both!

One of Nintendo’s biggest releases on the Switch is coming soon! Animal Crossing: New Horizons is set for release on March 20th and many are can’t contain their excitement. Though I’ll admit that my hype for the franchise was at its peak during the GameCube days, the recent Direct showed me a few things that have piqued my interest.
I liked Super Mario Maker a lot. I’m not one who enjoys making stuff in games, but I did have a great time during the brief stretch where I was into it. However, it fell out of my rotation pretty quickly when my interest in making levels waned and it felt like all of the user-created levels I encountered were awful. Because of this, Super Mario Maker 2 was not on my radar at all.
Then the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct happened. What I saw knocked my socks off! While I expected Nintendo to make improvements over the original, the sheer volume of improvements on display were staggering.

With its impending release less than a month away, Nintendo pulled back the curtain even further on Arms. In this 20-minute presentation, they unveiled new characters, a number of new modes, a commitment to free post-launch DLC and the announcement of an upcoming beta. Despite my skepticism of the game, Nintendo might have me on the brink of caving in.
