March Direct.

NinNews1

Things have been quiet on the Nintendo front of late however this week saw the return of the Direct event and with it at least a couple of interesting talking points. Without question though the biggest of these came in the from of Paper Mario Color Splash, the latest in the Paper Mario series and the newest Nintendo franchise to disappoint fans, as the series strays further and further still from its turn-base RPG roots in favour of action. The original, black sheep of the Nintendo family also made an appearance this week as fresh details regarding Metroid Prime Federation Force were also revealed. Despite Producer Kensuke Tanabe’s insistence that Federation Force is indeed a true Metroid title, Metroid fans remain unconvinced. New trailers for Star Fox Zero, Pokken Tournament, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Fire Emblem Fates, Dragon Quest VII Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Hyrule Warriors Legends were also shown, as was a brand new Kirby title dubbed Kirby Planet Robot but Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, now dubbed Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE, arguably stole the show while an oddball title from Game Freak named Pocket Card Jockey had everyone scratching their heads. All in all then a decent Direct if a predicable one.

  1. 3DS JRPGs aside, the main thing that caught my attention was the newly named Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. I’m not in to the idol craze, but the aesthetic is rad and it’s been getting great feedback in Japan. Can’t wait to check it out in June.

    Thanks for the recap =D

    1. I’m waiting for confirmation of the collectors edition of Fire Emblem Fates. That’s the version I’ll need after all if I want to, play them all physically.
