I have thoughts.
First – the Luigi Balloon update coming in February looks very interesting and fun for the speed-running crowd. Odyssey has been a hell of a fun game, so additional content for that is always welcome.
Second – Hyrule Warriors! I quite liked this game on Wii U, and loved playing with my son, so this will be a great purchase. It’s simple and mindless enough that a HD update and full character list is a perfect game for young players to rock with me. Good so far Nintendo!
Finally – DARK SOULS REMASTERED OH MY GOD ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! I will buy this game on both the Switch and the Xbox so I can get a full suite of achievements again, no crazy frame rate drops in the swamp and HAVE PORTABLE BRUTAL SOULS GOODNESS. I AM FREAKING OUT OH GOD. MAY 25TH. OH MY GOD.
Thanks for the update Nintendo! I’m going to go freak out some more!
