KoopaTV's February 13, 2019 Nintendo Direct Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Enthusiasm lacking.

I already did much of my introduction to this log within the reaction log below for the Nintendo Direct of February 13, 2019. First Nintendo Direct of the year.

In attendance are myself, Rawk, Wendy, and non-KoopaTV-staffer-but-friend Ryu, or MarioSun90. For a while, the Direct was appealing to his specific tastes... and then it changed.

Please feel free to watch the Nintendo Direct as we live-react to it. Here's the embed, but the optimal thing is to open it in another window and compare our reactions (per the time stamps) with the video's time-stamp.

Nintendo Direct February 13 2019 preview
Fire Emblem: Three Houses was the headliner of this Direct, but let's just say that this website doesn't care.
But don't take the above-the-fold's word for it. Read the whole reaction log and confirm for yourself!



[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Howdy folks.

[4:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: folk*

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I've read a lot of Internet comments that people are eagerly awaiting the upcoming (in 7 minutes) Nintendo Direct.

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We have more than one reader, Rawk!

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Anyway, I had to mention Internet comments, because I myself feel no eagerness towards this.

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Might as well just wait four months and then it's E3.

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I obviously have low expectations for the Direct as a usage of my time, so we'll see by the end of the reaction log if I change my feelings.

[4:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: You don't wanna see a new Smash Fighter in action?

[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nope.

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Assuming that's in the Direct, and I don't expect it to be, there aren't characters I actually want as DLC.

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That will actually get in, anyway.

[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If CAPCOM won't even sell Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney merchandise on their new online store (see: https://www.koopatv.org/2019/02/the-capcom-store-grand-opening.html ), he won't appear as DLC.

[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It'll be whatever the hell a Joker is.

[4:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: You're talking about Capcom like you expect them to make sense.

[4:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: They don't make sense.

[4:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: They've never made sense!

[4:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Look at Mega Man 11's music.

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mentioned Mega Man 11's music in that article, too!

[4:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: btw Joker will be here and you know it.

[4:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: And he never should have been announced when/where he was.

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I didn't want to admit it in the article, and perhaps I should've in the footer, but I had to do a lot of research for those CAPCOM characters.

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't care for Persona at all.

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not buying the Fighters Pass.

[4:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: star fox grand prix ayyyyyyyyyyyy

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm satisfied with the characters already in the game (I need a buff).

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: RP to M

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I forgot the Direct was actually gonna start and I just wanted to rant.

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EW PLUMBER

[5:00 PM] Ryu: Starting great

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YES

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DEAD

[5:02 PM] Ryu: Nintendo is showing all the games I'm interested in

[5:02 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: hm I'm here

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or maybe "The Black Order" isn't a sub-title.

[5:02 PM] Ryu: (only two so far)

[5:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Ryu Maybe Jack Frost really will be here then. :thinking:

[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With new features like "zoomed-in camera".

[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BOXBOY?

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MS90 this is your fault.

[5:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: This really is a damn Ryu pander-fest.

[5:04 PM] Ryu: I funded the sequel

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought the previous game was called "Bye-Bye Box Boy!"

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or something.

[5:04 PM] Ryu: Yes, it is

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought that means the series was over.

[5:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cutie?

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Qudy"

[5:05 PM] Ryu: Ok, I don't care that much for Treasure Tracker

[5:05 PM] Ryu: The streak ends here

[5:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring blue Captain Toad in co-op.

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Does blue Captain Toad have lore?

[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now there's paid DLC in Captain Toad.

[5:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wendy cares about...the character.

[5:06 PM] Ryu: I wouldn't mind playing the game at some point though

[5:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or a picture of the character?

[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's an uninspiring 3DS demo of it.

[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Here's not-Castlevania, Bloodstained.

[5:08 PM] Ryu: Well, it's made by Castlevania devs

[5:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: that's........not what I was wanting. .__.

[5:35 PM] Ryu: (I'm still getting it)

[5:36 PM] Ryu: What's with Link's face?


Nintendo Switch The Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening remake Goponga Swamp
DRAIN THE GOPONGA SWAMP.


[5:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: "So what did you think?"

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "At long last"

[5:36 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: actually the jump was interesting

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Are they gonna ignore Link's Awakening DX?

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Link's Awakening DX is how I played Link's Awakening.

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It was decent, except for the seashells.

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Done.

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well.

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was uhhhh

[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought Final Fantasy IX was coming in, like, 2020.

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: not good, lol.

[5:37 PM] Ryu: Best part was still Super Mario Maker 2. New Zelda was cool if you ignore its look

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: I liked Astral Chain.

[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "New Zelda" *old Zelda

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: Astral Chain looks cool.

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: And I'm downloading Tetris Battle Royale.

[5:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: (and am always calling it that even if it takes way longer than Tetris 99 to type)

[5:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I am SO getting it

[5:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: We must play.

[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm terrible at Tetris. :(

[5:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like Tetris! So yes.

[5:39 PM] Ryu: I might get NSO for Tetris Battle Royale

[5:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: And hey it might actually be fun to play portably unlike Smash.

[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why are you guys so excited for this?

[5:39 PM] Ryu: ( I like puzzle games)

[5:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Because a Tetris Battle Royale is a hilarious concept.

[5:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: And I've played Dr. Mario NES on Switch +5 hours.

[5:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: And I'm supposed to hate NES games.

[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder that Fire Emblem: Three Houses was supposed to be the biggest thing of the Direct.

[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Does anyone here want that?

[5:40 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: eh

[5:40 PM] Ryu: Better Direct than they usually do lately. I would've liked more Smash information

[5:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Three Houses...ehhhhhhhhh

[5:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Here's the thing.

[5:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: I want a new "Fire Emblem".

[5:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: And badly.

[5:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: And I kinda want Three Houses in the sense of "that'll have to do."

[5:41 PM] Ryu: No, I don't like what Three Houses is focusing on

[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FINAL FANTASY IX ISN'T ON THE ESHOP YET

[5:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dude you're gonna be disappointed af with this game.

[5:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait

[5:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're calling it "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening"?

[5:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're Sonic '06ing the name?

[5:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol "Tetris Battle Royale" is trending and not the game's actual title.

[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I was gonna end the article with a screenshot of me buying Final Fantasy IX from the eShop.

[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But my camera's battery is dead and it's not on the eShop.

[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Soooo I'm gonna say the Direct failed my low expectations set out at the beginning of the log.

[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FAKE NEWS.



As of publishing, Final Fantasy IX is now available for purchase on the Nintendo eShop for $20.99, requiring 4.9 GB of space. Ludwig will be sharing this article out to the world while it downloads. He doesn't know when he's going to, say, start playing the two new games he bought just a few weeks ago.


The Direct before this one was five months ago. Check out the reactions here.
King Slime (among many other folks) return in the September 2019 Nintendo Direct.

  1. Still no Switch Wars. At least I still have you, Wargroove. Yoshi's Crafted World is probably going to be a huge nightmare with all the cardboard around.

    1. Turns out releasing titles, including one that is a good fit for Nintendo Switch Online, is the battle royale Tetris.

      Delete
  2. 2/5, too much Dragon Quest, not enough Persona 5. And I couldn't care less about Tetris. Star Link seems interesting, which is why it's not 1/5.

    1. For some reason the other staffers think the Tetris is compelling. At least for now anyway. They'll probably drop it in a week! Hmph!

      Wasn't aware the KoopaTV readership cared about Persona.

    2. I don't in a general sense, but I have Persona Q (still need to properly play it) and I rather wanted to play 5 and don't have the capability without it being on the Switch.

    3. Maybe it'll be announced when Version 3.0.0 of Smash happens.

      Delete
    4. It'd be really weird for Joker to not have any games playable on Nintendo platforms, after all...!

      Delete
  3. I'm all in for Astral Chain (although I wish Bayonetta 3 got more than just a tiny mention) and I'm conflicted about Dragon Quest XI since I have a PS4 copy and was planning to start it soon...

    1. Part of Nintendo's strategy is probably casting fear, uncertainty, and doubt about buying games on other platforms because they JUST MIGHT get a Switch port if you wait a little later!

      Delete
    2. This feels like it might be more a plan from Square Enix... Fans buy Dragon Quest XI, then a new version of DQXI comes out with more content for the Switch, so some people double dip to get the new content... and then maybe later down the line they release the new content for the other platforms to get even more people to buy it.

      Especially since DQXI was never in a "wait and see" situation for the Switch, except as far as the localization was concerned. It was one of the earliest Switch games ever announced.

    3. Oh. Good point. I covered Dragon Quest XI for "NX" here. Back in 2015.

      Gonna wait and see if they re-re-release it back to PS4 then.

  4. I am not sure why some of you were disappointed with this Direct. In my opinion, I thought it was the best Direct that we have had all year. Sure, there might have been too many RPGs shown, but at least we are getting fantastic games such as Dead by Daylight, Disney Tsum Tsum Festival, and Link's Awakening: Nendoroid edition.
