KoopaTV's September 1, 2016 Nintendo Direct Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Post-Direct spoiler: It's slightly more than just 3DS games.

Are you ready for all of the Nintendo 3DS news you can handle? Because we are about to live-react to the September 1st 2016 Nintendo Direct!

Nintendo Direct 3DS September 1 2016 exclusive
This is incredibly inconvenient for anyone who works or just started school and is on the East Coast.

Will Nintendo stay on-topic and just talk about Nintendo 3DS stuff? Should we be calling this a “Nintendo 3DS Direct” because that's what their logo styles indicate? It's time to start.

I'm Nintendork 13 13, RawkHawk2010 is RawkHawk2010, and Vortexica is that dude. Let's go!

 RawkHawk2010 9:17 am
    I do expect something Color Splash related to be here.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:17 am
    When was the last time we had a Direct?

 RawkHawk2010 9:17 am
    It comes out in five weeks.
    I don't even think I was here.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:18 am
    It was just me. :-(

 RawkHawk2010 9:18 am
    lol 9:18 am

 RawkHawk2010 9:46 am
    angela corey lost her primary
    Oh, Vortex
    How's Brexit going? 9:47 am
    Pretty well actually.
    They had a big government brainstorm at some country estate yesterday.
    To come up with ideas on how to do it well and make it "a success".
    Also, market data continues to come out showing that a lot of the economic fears surrounding the vote haven't really materialised. 9:48 am
    Manufacturing is actually UP.
    In the UK.
    We don't even make anything anymore.
    Services data comes out next week.
    That's the important one.
    If that shows improvement too or at least resilience to market pressures, they'll be much rubbing all that economic scaremongering in "the experts'" faces.

 RawkHawk2010 9:50 am
    I know I'm glad it happened.
    We made thousands of dollars off of it, lol.
    And by "we", I mean "this household." 9:51 am
    On behalf of the British people, you're welcome.

 RawkHawk2010 9:51 am
    Liberals were fearmongering that Rare and Playtonic would go out of business.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:52 am
    *refreshes the Direct page*
    Embedded Twitch stream is there.
    But no indication of length.
    What if it's endless? 9:53 am
    Can I get a link?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:53 am 9:53 am

 RawkHawk2010 9:53 am
    Vortex, a UKer on DK Vine suddenly disappeared for a few days after Brexit and some dumbass thought he had actually died.
    via British nationalist "street mobs"
    lol 9:54 am
    lol what
    I haven't seen any "street mobs".

 RawkHawk2010 9:57 am
    three minutes
    Think we'll see any Donkey Kong?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:59 am

 RawkHawk2010 9:59 am
    fuck they're probably gonna spend 10 minutes on Federation Force.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:59 am
    >_< 9:59 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:00 am

    A lot of 3DS-only owners.

 RawkHawk2010 10:03 am
    A Super Mario Maker with a harder-to-access Miiverse?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:04 am
    Not every Wii U version course will be compatible.

 RawkHawk2010 10:04 am
    ...Mary O?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:04 am
    Focused on local friends.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:05 am
    Well, there's Donkey Kong. 10:05 am
    There ya go Rawk.

 RawkHawk2010 10:05 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:09 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:09 am
    You could only encounter 10 players before, but you can now encounter 100.

 RawkHawk2010 10:09 am
    What the fuck?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:09 am
    But I'm not sure if that's free or you have to pay for it.

 RawkHawk2010 10:09 am
    This is shit they should have done five years ago. >.> 10:09 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:10 am
    Available shortly after direct.
    Tank Troopers new announcement.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:10 am
    Titular Troopers.

 RawkHawk2010 10:10 am
    This looks like the Overwatch cast.
    I saw Injection Fairy lily 10:11 am
    This reminds me of that tank game on Wii Play, which I actually enjoyed.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:11 am
    Tank Troopers available this Winter.
    I loved that tank game.
    eShop exclusive Picross 3D Round 2

    Even if the music sounds pleasant.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:12 am
    The whole game is available today too.
    Indie reel time.

 RawkHawk2010 10:12 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:12 am
    "Nindies Summer Jam" new games each week.
    At discounted prices.
    Now they're just advertising random shit.
    Like their Twitter and PAX.
    30 years ago, the Legend of Zelda.
    I thought he was about to announce MOTHER 3.
    Advertising the NES Classic Edition thing.
    That's not a 3DS.

 RawkHawk2010 10:14 am
    "30 years ago, Mother 3 was released in Japan."

 Nintendork 13 13 10:14 am

The Legend of Zelda 30th anniversary classic amiibo 8-bit Link Toon Zelda

    I don't do amiibo.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:14 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:14 am
    Didn't Dark Horse do Hyrule Historia?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:15 am
    Skyward Sword will be releasing today on Wii U eShop.
    (That's not 3DS exclusive at all.)

 RawkHawk2010 10:15 am
    None of this is, really.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:15 am
    Now he's advertising Nintendo Selects titles.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:16 am
    "New Galaxy Style" New Nintendo 3DS XL.

 RawkHawk2010 10:16 am
    That Galaxy Style design is...not pretty.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:16 am
    It's purple.
    I'd rather have that than my  Red New Nintendo 3DS XL.
    Reggie back to green screen. 10:16 am
    Nice try with the purple, but I'll stick to my golden MM 3DS.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:16 am
    Asking where Bill and his New Nintendo 3DS is.

    And a train. 10:17 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:17 am
    wtf dead Zelda DLC

 RawkHawk2010 10:17 am
    How does this game get so much DLC? 10:18 am
    I should probably finish playing Spirit Tracks sometime...

 Nintendork 13 13 10:18 am
    Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks pack.
    Wasn't all of that Spirit Tracks?

 RawkHawk2010 10:18 am
    Phantom Hourglass brings back bad memories.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:18 am
    ACE ATTORNEY 10:18 am
    Looked like it.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:18 am
    Apollo Justice faces off his own challenges.
    "Striking cast of characters"

 RawkHawk2010 10:18 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:19 am
    "This is one case you'll definitely want to take." "OBJECTION!" "Overruled."
    ...and so he's done with Ace Attorney.

 RawkHawk2010 10:19 am
    lol 10:19 am
    lol that was it.

 RawkHawk2010 10:19 am
    I thought it was gonna end at "OBJECTION!"

 Nintendork 13 13 10:19 am
    I thought he was about to talk about MOTHER 3.

 RawkHawk2010 10:19 am
    Which would've been horrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:19 am
    But it's Dragon Quest VII.
    Or some other number.

 RawkHawk2010 10:19 am
    I've never played a Dragon Quest.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:19 am

Dragon Quest VII Fragments of the Forgotten Past King Slime battle
Ludwig hasn't had enough Dragon Quest VII slimes? 10:19 am
    I don't get why this Dragon Quest game is so anticipated.
    People are treating it like some lost DQ holy grail.

 RawkHawk2010 10:20 am
    The only thing I like about Dragon Quest is the art.

 RawkHawk2010 10:20 am
    I don't even think the music is good from what I've heard. 10:20 am
    I like the Slimes.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:20 am
    Available September 16. 10:20 am
    That's about it.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:20 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:20 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:20 am
    Weird music.
    Yo-Kai Watch 2.

 RawkHawk2010 10:20 am
    oh no

 Nintendork 13 13 10:21 am
    Ugh I thought he'd talk about MOTHER 3.
    'cause it's a weird RPG.
    This is like E3 Day 2 all over again.
    So maybe Color Splash WILL show up at the end.
    "Which side will you choose? Bony... or fleshy?" 10:21 am
    "Boney or Fleshy"?

 RawkHawk2010 10:22 am
    they're treating version exclusive dudes like an entirely new concept 10:22 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:22 am
    To be fair, it's not like they've explained wthe difference between Sun and Moon
    Sailor Nya? 10:22 am
    "Pokemon Bony/Pokemon Fleshy"

 Nintendork 13 13 10:22 am
    "So many choices!"
    (All two?)

 RawkHawk2010 10:22 am
    This presenter looks way too happy.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:22 am
    (Not that we want more.)

 RawkHawk2010 10:22 am
    We need a sad monotone Nintendo Direct person. 10:23 am
    Bleeaggh disney

 Nintendork 13 13 10:23 am
    Peter Ong?

 RawkHawk2010 10:23 am
    Like Dan Rather.
    Or him.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:23 am
    I mean, he is talking about Disney.
    Can we talk about how depressed Peter Ong was talking about Disney?

 RawkHawk2010 10:23 am
    Are we all buying this?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:23 am
    No? 10:23 am
    Of course not.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:24 am
    "I saw quite a bit of Disney magic."
    Ew, Disney 3DS themes.

 RawkHawk2010 10:24 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:24 am
    Sonic Boom Fire & Ice.
    "Popular animated series Sonic Boom."
    Where do you even watch that?
    I haven't heard anyone talk about it.

 RawkHawk2010 10:25 am
    I can't remember.
    I think it was on Cartoon Network at some point.
    On Saturday mornings.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:25 am
    Long awaited sequel to beloved RPG?

 RawkHawk2010 10:25 am
    Oh god, this series.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:25 am
    Not MOTHER 3, but Shin Megami Tensei 4.
    APOCALYPSE 10:25 am
    It's like they're teasing Mother 3 on purpose now.

 RawkHawk2010 10:25 am
    I never got past the first hour of SMTIV.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:25 am
    Is this like Street Fighter IV? Where they keep rereleasing it?

 RawkHawk2010 10:26 am

Bill Trinen Nintendo 3DS Direct Easter Island Chile beard wig
What happened to you...? 10:26 am
    Wow, he shaved fast.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:26 am
    Nintendo 3DS version of Yoshi's Woolly World?

 RawkHawk2010 10:26 am
    Yoshi's Woolly World but in 240p?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:27 am
    With exclusive Poochy stages.

 RawkHawk2010 10:27 am
    Just what we wanted!

 Nintendork 13 13 10:27 am
    That make the game easier.
    With animated shorts.

Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World pups Nintendo 3DS
They're kinda like Huffin' Puffins, but they jump out and reveal secrets. 10:27 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:27 am
    Produced with Dwarfs.
    Yarn amiibo figure of Poochy.
    "Poocky & Yoshi's Woolly World"
    Why do I keep doing that? 10:28 am
    Oh my.
    This thing again.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:28 am
    Oh yeah, Ever Oasis. I also forgot this existed.
    I liked the Hoots.
    Newts? 10:28 am
    This game is from Grezzo?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:28 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:28 am
    Yeah, Grezzo 10:28 am
    I think it's Noots.

 RawkHawk2010 10:29 am
    That's why someone was flying around with Deku flowers in that Treehouse Live stream.
    It steals a lot from the N64 Zelda ports. 10:29 am
    I remember my stream failing during the last half of this game at E3, so at least some of what I'm seeing here is somewhat new to me.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:30 am
    Mari0 Sports Super Stars?

 RawkHawk2010 10:30 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:30 am
    Is this a 3DS Mari0 Sports Mix?

 RawkHawk2010 10:30 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:30 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:30 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:31 am
    That female Boom Boom is playable.
    Released Spring 2017.

 RawkHawk2010 10:31 am
    I kind of want this.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:31 am
    Final game of the day.
    ...not MOTHER 3.

 RawkHawk2010 10:31 am
    Just for the horse-racing.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:31 am
    Captain Olimar? 10:31 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:31 am
    ...Is this a platformer?
    Side-scrolling adventure game on Nintendo 3DS. 10:32 am

 Nintendork 13 13 10:32 am
    Are they pulling a Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash?

 RawkHawk2010 10:32 am
    I'd rather have this than another 3D one, really.

 RawkHawk2010 10:32 am

Pikmin Nintendo 3DS sidescroller red Pikmin fire Captain Olimar
Quite frankly, this is just being a jerk. 10:32 am
    Oh, I need to have this.

 RawkHawk2010 10:32 am
    Two screens.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:32 am
    Underwater blue Pikmin.
    Designed with action in mind. 10:32 am
    Is it just those three colours, I wonder?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:33 am
    "Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS (name not final" for 2017.

 RawkHawk2010 10:33 am
    Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS

 Nintendork 13 13 10:33 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:33 am
    Normally I'd say "(name not final)" is hilariously obvious.
    ...Smash. 10:33 am
    At least they saved something good for last.

 RawkHawk2010 10:34 am
    So yeah, wasn't horrible.
    Is Camelot doing the sports game?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:34 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:35 am
    Because if it is, I'm assuming Ultra Smash was literally a port of its tennis but with upscaled graphics.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:36 am
    I feel bad for the horse.

 RawkHawk2010 10:36 am
    That ain't no Rio horse.

 RawkHawk2010 10:37 am
    Peach looks like she's about to strike Mario. 10:37 am
    Maybe she's just aiming for the hat parasite.

 RawkHawk2010 10:38 am
    And yeah Ludwig, you're never getting Mother 3.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:38 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:38 am
    Especially with the NX coming out, which means the VC catalog will start from square one AGAIN.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:40 am

 RawkHawk2010 10:40 am
    Mario Sports Superstars was my favorite thing showed.
    Soccer, Baseball, Tennis, Golf...
    That's amazing.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:41 am
    I'm... considerably less impressed.

 RawkHawk2010 10:41 am
    We should get it.
    We'll be able to play Mario Baseball online.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:41 am
    How do you know?

 RawkHawk2010 10:41 am
    They said it.

 RawkHawk2010 10:42 am
    "According to the Nintendo Direct, these are five full games, playable both offline and online with friends in tournament mode, and not just a series of mini-games."

 Nintendork 13 13 10:42 am
    Is the player lineup going to suck?
    I guess we'll have to keep up with its news. 10:43 am
    What if Ludwig is playable?

 Nintendork 13 13 10:43 am
    Then we'll consider it. 10:43 am
    I wanna see you riding one of those horses.

Ludwig will keep the horse-racing to Larry and Bowser Jr. What was your favourite part of the Nintendo Direct? Let KoopaTV know in the comments.

The last time there was a Nintendo Direct was March. That was a while ago.
The migration of Wii U games to the 3DS upsets Ludwig.

Let's talk more about those last two announcements from this Direct that everyone has forgotten about.
Pikmin on the 3DS is now named Hey! Pikmin.


  1. [insert usual comment from ShinyGirafarig about a lack of a turned based strategy game from Intelligent Systems about war announcement here]

    I just got Woolly World for the Wii U recently but did not open it but I think I would appreciate the graphics more on the bigger screen anyway.

    Disney game needs more Wreck-it Ralph.

    1. ...yeah I already forgot about that tank game.

      I can't imagine why you'd want low-res yarn graphics.

  2. I'm quite fond of the new Zelda amiibo, especially the Wind Waker two pack. I imagine these along with the Breath of the Wild amiibo are going to sell like hotcakes.

    It's interesting to see some of the Wii U's best sellers being ported to a much inferior console power and graphics wise. Yoshi's Wooly World was recently discounted for $40, so the 3ds version will probably cost the same at retail, oddly enough. I may buy the game eventually, but as for Super Mario Maker, I'll just stick to the superior HD version which I already own.

    Overall, the Direct was decent. There were a few surprises but none that really lived up to the hype. Nintendo was mainly promising 3ds owners that the system has a few good years ahead of it compared to its home console counterpart. At least the Wii U still has these great games to look forward to, am I right?|prepurchase&soon

    1. While we're talking about it, 8-Bit Link looks like he's from Minecraft. Pretty icky.

      I already own a regular Link and Zelda amiibo, so I'm not sure in terms of functionality what buying the Wind Waker ones would do. But looks-wise, I want 'em!

      I feel like it's kind of an insult to the Wii U, but as I mentioned in the log, I see tons of 3DS-only people always begging Nintendo over Miiverse to port Wii U games to the 3DS. All that's left is Splatoon.

      ...Yeah... sure... >_>; <_<;

  3. "Is this like Street Fighter IV? Where they keep rereleasing it?"

    No, Apocalypse is a new, different game set in the same world as SMT IV. (I'm not sure if it's a sequel or set at the same time or what.)

    My favorite parts of the Direct were seeing more Dragon Quest, Yo-Kai Watch 2, and Ever Oasis. I wish there were more new announcements, though.
