KoopaTV's September 13, 2018 Nintendo Direct Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The staff is all here. Was that effort worth it?

A really important thing to note here is that this Nintendo Direct was supposed to air last week. Since then, much of the information that is discussed in the Nintendo Direct have already been announced by Nintendo or other companies.

Our reaction log starts with conversation about Hurricane Florence. If you want to know why, read yesterday's confrontational article that is all about this Nintendo Direct and the story of its delays due to natural disasters.

The entire KoopaTV staff is present to live react to this log (myself, RawkHawk2010, Kamek, Wendy, and Witch Princess), along with our long-time friend who is in the log as Ryu. These live reaction logs provide you the staff's unfiltered, raw opinions. It's how we truly feel as it's happening. Everything after is just spin.

You can watch the Nintendo Direct alongside our reactions with the embed below. Make sure you start it once the log reaches 6 PM so it's synchronised.

[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/09-13-2018/

[5:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well

[5:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'm pretty scared.

[5:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: I can't remember the last time I've been "scared" of a Direct.

[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Has anyone died from Florence yet?

[5:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe a crab.

[5:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[5:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Someone died in Florida from it.

[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Uh...

[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Florida?

[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No one ever mentioned Florida and Florence.

[5:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: If you drown in  rough tide remotely a result of Florence, I suppose you're technically killed by Florence.

[5:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's why literally anyone drowning on the east coast will probably be added to the death total.

[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo fans still think that Sopporo and Kyoto are actually near each other.

[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And that Nintendo has no reason to care about American lives.

[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, alright then.

[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think #AllLivesMatter and #AllFansMatter

[5:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: who cares

[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: but I guess people don't agree.

[5:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: A Direct is happening in nine minutes.

[5:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: Disasters can wait.

[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But will they wait?

[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Someone in a Carolina might be watching the Direct and midway they get pwned.

[5:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: in b4 volcano

[5:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: in b4 giant meteor

[5:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "THIS IS A VOLCANO!"

[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRE4nx5Oegw

[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Listening to this to kill the time.

[5:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: pass the time*

[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: you don't "kill the time" do you?

[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: you just "kill time"

[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: You "pass the time"

[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah that's what I'm doing.

[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yikes Nintendo's stock price fell 2%.

[5:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Investors found out Isaac is the newcomer.

[6:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: We already saw these.

[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead of delay it to be during a hurricane.

[6:18 PM] Kamek: awww

[6:18 PM] Ryu: change your pokemon hairstyle

[6:18 PM] Kamek: It's cute

[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can mess up your Pokémon's hair by smudging your Nintendo Switch's touch screen.

[6:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Has any of this referenced earthquakes yet?

[6:20 PM] Ryu: and I don't want to, Nintendo

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This segment is why they delayed the Direct.

[6:20 PM] Kamek: well

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So it better be worth it.

[6:20 PM] Kamek: I like mario parties

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It's not.)

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Single-player mode.

[6:21 PM] Ryu: online Mario Party???

[6:21 PM] Kamek: I like the idea

[6:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: MOVING AND SHAKING

[6:22 PM] Witch Princess: Earthquake reference?

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's that Daemon X Machina game that no one cared about during its E3 segment.

[6:23 PM] Kamek: they announced this a while ago

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Exactly 3 months ago.)

[6:23 PM] Ryu: I cared about it

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well you didn't watch the Treehouse Live segment with us.

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's just guns.

[6:23 PM] Kamek: It looks slightly interesting

[6:24 PM] Kamek: I feel like this was the next step in star fox

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rawk and I watched it and it wasn't interesting.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 11 minutes.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Here's Yoshi's Crafted World.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Not cancelled.)

[6:24 PM] Kamek: Maneuverability is cool

[6:24 PM] Ryu: Nintendo is reminding me that I never finished Wooly World

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Keep an eye out for Kamek.

[6:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Reminder that the Epic Yarn/Woolly World composer left Good Feel.

[6:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Which is why this music sucks.

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...oh, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles remake.

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *remaster

[6:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is the framerate atrocious or is this the stream

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought they'd have an actually new announcement.

[6:31 PM] Witch Princess: This Direct is so disappointing

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With FFVII remake.

[6:31 PM] Kamek: crystal chronicles was my first final fantasy

[6:31 PM] Kamek: and also why i don't like final fantasy

[6:33 PM] Kamek: CHECK THIS THING OUT

[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle.

[6:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: Retroactively speaking.

[6:33 PM] Witch Princess: But we already have Switches

[6:33 PM] Kamek: thought it was a sticker lol

[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wendy you can use this opportunity to get a Nintendo Switch!

[6:34 PM] Ryu: that's not a gamecube controller

[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Those Joy-Con controllers are super lame.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate special Joy-Con controllers logo
You can put a decal of the Super Smash Bros. logo on the Joy-Con controllers all you want...
...They're a sub-optimal way to be playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

[6:34 PM] Witch Princess: Yeah they are

[6:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: They have one more minute.

[6:34 PM] Ryu: [raging fanboys ensue](edited)

[6:34 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ehhh

[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: November 2 GCN controller.

[6:34 PM] Ryu: This direct sucked

[6:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: snap

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Isabelle.

[6:35 PM] Ryu: it still sucked

[6:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: ........

[6:35 PM] Witch Princess: I agree Ryu

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From Animal Crossing New Leaf. "Not actual gameplay footage"

[6:35 PM] Ryu: I really don't care about Animal Crossing

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Although I wish the mayor wasn't so busy with the campsite and Smash."

[6:35 PM] Kamek: Political coup

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I forgot that Animal Crossing mobile trash existed.

[6:35 PM] Kamek: Isabelle is bad

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pete is one of my favourite Animal Crossing characters.

[6:36 PM] Kamek: pete is pretty cool

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe I just like mailmen between him, Parakarry, and Newman.

[6:36 PM] Ryu: oh no

[6:36 PM] Kamek: no

[6:36 PM] Ryu: no no no

[6:36 PM] Witch Princess: Wow

[6:36 PM] Kamek: oh no

[6:36 PM] Ryu: nooooooooooooooooooo

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ISABELLE TURNS OVER A NEW LEAF

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This isn't an echo fighter...?

[6:36 PM] Kamek: why

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...blegh.

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tom Nook?!

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is he in?!

[6:37 PM] Witch Princess: Nook

[6:37 PM] Kamek: lol good old tom nook

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's a dream from NSider.

[6:37 PM] Ryu: Tom Nook is the mayor now

[6:37 PM] Kamek: lol

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tom Nook for Smash was such a big  thing in Smash.

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *NSider

[6:37 PM] Ryu: What are you doing Nintendo?

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or is this an Animal Crossing for Switch announcement?

[6:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is slow as fuck

[6:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OH YIKES IT MIGHT BE

[6:37 PM] Kamek: I miss tom nook being a semi crotchety old miser

[6:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Animal Crossing 2019 for Nintendo Switch.

Welcome to Animal Crossing 2019 Nintendo Switch logo
Despite the re-usage of the Animal Crossing logo from the GameCube game, Animal Crossing for Switch is new.

[6:38 PM] Kamek: who was kinda trying to scam you

[6:38 PM] Witch Princess: Hmm

[6:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (...is it a port?)

[6:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Thank you for watching"

[6:38 PM] Ryu: I hope I get AC for free again, Nintendo

[6:38 PM] Kamek: I don't like tom nook being so benevolent

[6:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: so uh

[6:38 PM] Witch Princess: I thought it would be a port by the looks of it

[6:38 PM] Kamek: kinda disappointing

[6:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I'm disappointed

[6:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: too many points

[6:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like Isabelle but why the fuck is she not an echo fighter

[6:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: *ports

[6:38 PM] Witch Princess: Disappointed

[6:38 PM] Kamek: I don't think it'll be a port for animal crossing

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well the best news of this is Final Fantasy IX is coming to Nintendo Switch.

[6:39 PM] Kamek: why IX?

[6:39 PM] Ryu: The only way they could've saved this if they showed Geno

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That was the only thing I wanted to play on my gaming-quality computer.

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now I don't have to use it!

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: >_>

[6:39 PM] Kamek: that's bad

[6:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: What's so good about Final Fantasy IX?

[6:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: I've never heard of it.

[6:39 PM] Ryu: FFIX is pretty great

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Vivi Ornitier.

[6:39 PM] Kamek: VII is a historical monument to video games

[6:39 PM] Witch Princess: I've never played Final Fantasy

[6:40 PM] Kamek: that i've never played

[6:40 PM] Kamek: so I do need to do that....

[6:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Literally the only Final Fantasy I've played is the Theatrhythm demo.

[6:40 PM] Kamek: Isn't IX the one with j

[6:40 PM] Kamek: titus

[6:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: But yeah this was bad.

[6:40 PM] Kamek: and auron

[6:40 PM] Kamek: and such

[6:40 PM] Kamek: riku

[6:40 PM] Kamek: etc

[6:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's X.

[6:41 PM] Kamek: oops

[6:41 PM] Ryu: yeah

[6:41 PM] Ryu: IX is with Zidane

[6:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Torna comes out in like six hours and holy shit it probably got less screentime than the Chocobo game.

[6:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well at least I get to play it.

[6:41 PM] Witch Princess: You'd think it would get more screen time

[6:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: omg

[6:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Animal Crossing is a new mainline game.

[6:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: I completely forgot about the Nintendo Switch Online demonstration.

[6:42 PM] Ryu: Chocobo Mystery Dungeon is the only FF game they showed that I liked seeing there(edited)

[6:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not a port.

[6:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo Switch Online is a disaster.

[6:42 PM] Kamek: Well my overall thoughts are lackluster. Stoked for Starfox, Super Mario Party, and Animal Crossing

[6:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Reminder it's not a Star Fox game)

[6:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wolf O'Donnel was the best thing.

[6:42 PM] Witch Princess: Yeah Online really isn't worth the money to me

[6:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Of the Direct.

[6:43 PM] Ryu: they didn't mention the 7 days trial lol

[6:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: They don't want you to know about that.

[6:43 PM] Witch Princess: Considering I've been disconnected from games more times on my Switch than Wii U

[6:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They never mentioned if they're using the money to buy servers or not.

[6:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SOOOO ASSUME THEY AREN'T AND THE ONLINE WON'T ACTUALLY IMPROVE WHEE

[6:44 PM] Witch Princess: Suspicious

[6:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: About Isabelle

[6:44 PM] Ryu: they didn't say anything new about online

[6:44 PM] Ryu: We're still in the dark

[6:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'd glad it was her rather than Isaac, Incineroar, or Geno.

[6:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: I can say that much.

[6:45 PM] Ryu: >.>

[6:45 PM] Witch Princess: Or any ARMS characters

[6:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder that Bowser Jr. is an ARMS fan.

  1. Of all the things I'm excited that came from this Direct, the fact that Splatoon 2 is receiving an update revamping the Splatfest system saddly excitens me, especially because eventually I'm going to have to find a way to pay for a membership for me and my sister.

    The Luigi's Mansion 3 trailer didn't have the same "Wow" astonishment that was in the Castlevania trailer, and throughout Isabelle's trailer, I was glad it served as a dual announcement, but the presentation was a bit slow.

    I didn't expect Rawk to be a fan of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

    1. For you and your sister?

      Rawk is a huuuuuge Xenoblade Chronicles 2 fan. It's all he talks about. He's staying up right now just to download Torna. He went ahead and got the first Xenoblade Chronicles so he could fully appreciate the second. Now his main in Super Smash Bros. is Shulk.
      He's fully into it.

      You had to remind me that Luigi's Mansion 3 existed.

    2. My sister and I.

      Checking back on the Luigi's Mansion 3 trailer, it doesn't look bad. It's the cinematics themselves that look incomplete and rushed, which may have stemmed from Simon's reveal featuring the new Poltergeist.

      On Smash, I realized why I had an issue with the presentation's speed: text speed. I understand it's to accomodate for other English readers, but I couldn't help but feel drawn down by its speed. I'm the kind of person that, when a sentence of text is complete, I press A. Like I said before, I'm still glad that it served as a dual announcement, which is something I rarely see.

      Delete
    3. Why don't you just share an account?

      I'm still not going to re-watch the trailer even though I've had ample time to.

      The speed is to reflect the standard text speed of an Animal Crossing game. I mean, you don't see dialogue boxes in other Super Smash Bros. trailers. First time that's happened.

  2. I thought it was a great Nintendo Direct! Luigi's Mansion 3, lots of Final Fantasy news (though I wish WoFF was getting a sequel instead of an upgrade)... Towns could be interesting. My friends are excited for Animal Crossing.

    1. Of course, no complaints about the Final Fantasy stuff.

      Town. Singular. The trailer made an emphasis there's only one. (But also called it a village.)

      Delete
    2. I realized hours after leaving my comment that I'd written Towns instead of Town and forgot to fix it. XD

    3. Thanks for thinking about your KoopaTV contributions in your free time!

  3. Well Isabelle got in despite being an assist trophy character in SSB4. She could have been voted in droves in the ballot despite the ballot not being revealed at the start to be for the successor game after SSB4 or something else is going on.

    1. Could be Sakurai favouritism.

      Or someone in Nintendo was heavily lobbying for her.

      Or the primary point was to advertise the new Animal Crossing.

      Delete
  4. I was a little disappointed that there was no new Ace Attorney shown, but there is always the Tokyo Game Show later this month (if it does not get delayed as well). Luigi's Mansion 3 could be great. I'm just hoping it is more similar to the first instead of the second game. It's also cool to see that Animal Crossing will be on the Switch next year and Isabelle will be the 68th fighter on the Super Smash Bros roster. I just wonder who will be revealed next?

    1. I'm not holding the lack of Ace Attorney against the Direct — in fact, I'm not holding the lack of anything against the Direct.
