KoopaTV's LIVE Reactions to the February 17 2021 Nintendo Direct

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - ...You could skip to the end for the “one last thing”, or you could participate in the journey along the way!

Many Nintendo fans have proclaimed the DEATH of the Nintendo Direct. After all, the last one called NINTENDO DIRECT was in September 2019, and to these people (I'm not included), Nintendo presentations like the Nintendo Direct Mini and the many Partner Showcases throughout 2020 just don't count.

But today, an indisputably direct and grandiose in scale Nintendo Direct has arrived, and KoopaTV's entire five-member staff reacted to it. Follow along with the embedded Direct with our live commentary immediately below:



[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Five minutes until the Nintendo Direct of February 2021 begins...!
[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Either I got something broken, or there's no waiting room audio from the Nintendo Direct stream.
[4:57 PM] HeavyLobster: I'm here.
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Do you hear any audio?
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's eerie.
[4:58 PM] HeavyLobster: no
[4:58 PM] HeavyLobster: Let's hope this is a good one.
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They usually have waiting room audio, don't they?
I guess it's been a long time so maybe I don't remember.
[4:59 PM] Witch Princess: hiya
[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Witchy! You're...alive!
[4:59 PM] Witch Princess: yeah I survived that blizzard
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: RATING PENDING TO MATURE 17+
[5:00 PM] HeavyLobster: Let's Go!
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf Xenoblade
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HeavyLobster please explain.
[5:01 PM] Witch Princess: I still need to play Xenoblade
[5:01 PM] HeavyLobster: I'm betting Smash trailer.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Well...
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...FINAL DESTINATION
[5:01 PM] Witch Princess: Will Story of Seasons be shown last?
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (no)
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rex is a loser. >_>
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Pyra is in Smash.
[5:02 PM] Witch Princess: Rawk likes Rex right?
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...No, no one likes Rex.
[5:02 PM] Witch Princess: Lol
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Mythra is apparently in this too.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Definitely in this.
[5:03 PM] Witch Princess: Hmm
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pyra and Mythra can swap.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: REX MII
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ike is getting Final Smashed in yet another trailer to represent a boss, like Cloud's Smash 4 trailer.
[5:04 PM] HeavyLobster: Rex got Chrom'd.
[5:05 PM] Witch Princess: Even with the emergency heat on it's cold in my room >.>
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't think they're gonna talk about Smash.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: After that.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo acknowledging they haven't done one of these Directs in a long time.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This fighter releases in March.
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's next month!
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOW THERE'S MORE.
[5:06 PM] Kamek: Uh oh
[5:06 PM] Kamek: Just got here
[5:06 PM] Kamek: Link?
[5:06 PM] Witch Princess: Hi Kamek!
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well you missed Pyra and Mythra.
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/nintendo
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now Fall Guys is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
[5:06 PM] Witch Princess: Idek what that is
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Summer 2021.
[5:06 PM] HeavyLobster: Fall Guys too.
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It was this virally popular game on PlayStation last year.
[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now it's dead.
[5:07 PM] Witch Princess: Oof
[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So it'll either be revived or stay dead.
[5:07 PM] Kamek: Rawk isn't here for Xenoblade
[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Outer Wilds is also coming to Switch later this year.
And Famicom Detective Club games are coming.
[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I'm sure he's watching.)
[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Should I be interested in Famicom Detective Club?
[5:08 PM] Kamek: I remember vague rumblings of Famicom detective club
[5:09 PM] Kamek: But... A long time ago
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, they'll be available May 14. Guess I gotta look into that more.
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But "a new age of battles begins" for now.
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this another Warrio-...yes.
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Literally Nobunaga.
[5:10 PM] Kamek: Who?
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Samurai Warriors 5.
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Warriors games, before doing a bunch of Nintendo crossovers, were originally supposed to be about Nobunaga.
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Of historical fame.
[5:10 PM] Kamek: Oh
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (And of Pokémon Conquest)
[5:10 PM] HeavyLobster: Warriors does crossovers with everything.
[5:11 PM] Kamek: I know quite a few people who love secret of mana
[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I assume that doesn't include you.)
[5:12 PM] Kamek: I played it for 5 minutes once
[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, now we get to the CAPCOM part of the presentation.
[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I assume this is Monster Hunter Rise, which was always gonna be in this Direct 'cause it's coming next month.
[5:13 PM] Kamek: I don't like this voice actor
[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...It's bad that when the characters said they have some important announcement to share, I thought they were going to Smash, too.
[5:14 PM] Kamek: The calamity?
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wish I could get into Monster Hunter but I can't.
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GOLF
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PLUMBER GOLF
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Super Rush?
[5:15 PM] HeavyLobster: Mario Golf.
[5:15 PM] Kamek: "Take your time to think things through."
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joy-Con motion controls.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Which sounds like a bad idea.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf is that
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Speed Golf" "it's always your turn"
[5:16 PM] Kamek: Is it just me or has motion control golf never worked
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Was Mari0 Golf ever on the Wii?
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So Speed Golf me-..
[5:16 PM] Kamek: That sounds more fun
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: STORY MODE
[5:16 PM] Kamek: Lol story mode?
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You play as a freaky-faced Mii.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And level up and have stats.
[5:17 PM] Kamek: Is there a mii channel on switch?
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Available June 25.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's a Mii maker, it's just hidden.
[5:17 PM] Kamek: O
[5:17 PM] HeavyLobster: Wii Sports Golf was fun.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This feels like it was supposed to be made on the Wii.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Montage time.
[5:18 PM] Kamek: .... Wsit
[5:18 PM] Kamek: Wait
[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm waiting.
[5:18 PM] Kamek: Isn't this the studio that died
[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah.
[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That CAPCOM compilation is coming out today.
[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And that somehow segues into a zombie game that I thought was a Sims 2 port.
[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NO MORE HEROES 3
[5:19 PM] Kamek: Uh oh
[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (This is why the Direct is rated M)
[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ODDJOB MINIGAMES ARE BACK

No More Heroes 3 lawn mowing grass odd job minigame Travis Touchdown Nintendo Switch

[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It had been delayed indefinitely from 2020, so now I guess we know when that is.)

[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Did you play Miitopia on the 3DS?
[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: A HORSE

Miitopia Nintendo Switch horses snort
Previously, horses were responsible for creating tundral conditions.
Perhaps this one caused the desert?

[5:25 PM] Witch Princess: I did.
[5:25 PM] Kamek: Mii Horse!
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is Mii Horse new?
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: UH OH

[5:26 PM] Witch Princess: Yeah looks new
[5:26 PM] Kamek: Functional warp pipes is cool

Animal Crossing New Horizons Super Mario 35th Anniversary items mushrooms coin blocks Bowser Flag warp pipes
Let's hope that warp pipe stops functioning and he can't get back.

[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THE PLUMBERS ARE INVADING ANIMAL CROSSING
[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can buy staches for Mari0, Luig1, and Wario, but not Waluigi.
[5:27 PM] Kamek: Oof expensive
[5:27 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I just saw gradient hair
[5:27 PM] Witch Princess: I guess that turned Waluigi fans off lol
[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The items are being released as part of the 35th anniversary. No word if they'll disappear at the end of March.
[5:28 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: this looks like fire emblem
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Looks like Octopath Traveler.
[5:28 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: that was my second guess
[5:28 PM] Kamek: Ooo
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "project TRIANGLE STRATEGY"
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring SALT.
[5:29 PM] Kamek: This feels fire emblemy
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: People are warring over salt and iron.
[5:29 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: creative
[5:29 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ./s
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't see how any of this resembles Fire Emblem.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright I mean it's a tactical RPG.
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So maaaaybe.
[5:30 PM] Kamek: :phoenix_i_did_it:
[5:30 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: hmm
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Okay THERE'S NO TERRAIN MAGIC CASTING IN FIRE EMBLEM.
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well Fire Emblem Fates had something sortaaaa like that.
[5:31 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I hope it's not as complicated as Knights in the Nightmare
[5:31 PM] Kamek: Also is to what extent is the  voice acting
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Utility" "Morality" "Liberty" system.
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With CRITICAL DECISIONS.
[5:31 PM] Kamek: Ooo
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I actually thought this was gonna be a Nonary Games thing when it was first shown because of the artwork and the opening music notes)
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But yeah, by SQUARE ENIX so it's supposed to evoke Octopath Traveler.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DEMO AVAILABLE after presentation.
[5:32 PM] Kamek: Demo?
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND feedback survey.
[5:32 PM] Kamek: FEEDBACK SURVEY
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which are also classic Square things they did with Octopath Traveler and Bravely Default II.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I happened to download their demos and never play them.)
[5:33 PM] Kamek: I just finished The Mándalorian by the way
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (But maybe that'll change with this.)
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...was that the whole trailer?
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Star Wars Hunters" "competitive free-to-play" nope
[5:33 PM] Kamek: EA
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EA bringing cringe-inducing footage.
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Not surprising.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They censored "ass" but the Direct is rated M.
[5:34 PM] Kamek: Dodge ball?
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: City Trial Dodge Ball?
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...nah I'm pretty sure it's closer to Fortnite Dodge Ball.
[5:35 PM] Kamek: It is quite fortnite in design
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Knockout City"
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: eek
[5:35 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: that looked really lame
[5:35 PM] Kamek: Game of fate... Why does that sound familiar
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I just mentioned Nonary Games and now we see this from the maker of that.
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Getting... Uh... TWEWY vibes)
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "World's End Club"
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hades now getting a physical version.
[5:36 PM] Kamek: Ah I've heard quite a few things about this
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ya all I heard from people was that KoopaTV should've nominated Hades for GOTY.
[5:37 PM] Kamek: Mostly thirst related things
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.
[5:38 PM] Kamek: Does ninja Gaiden typically have combos?
[5:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: yeah
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity downloadable content.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...And I guess they're spoiling the game in this trailer.
[5:39 PM] HeavyLobster: Age of Calamity DLC was inevitable.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Expansion Pass"
[5:39 PM] Kamek: Age of calamity looks like fun
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it was gonna be free but nah $20.
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Aforementioned Bravely Default II releasing next week.
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...and aforementioned Bravely Default II demo is updated too.
[5:40 PM] Kamek: For a second I thought Final Trailer was part of the title
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CAPCOM has been pushing Ghost 'n Goblins Resurrection a lot.
[5:41 PM] Kamek: Oh
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Eek, Apex Legends. <_<;
[5:41 PM] Kamek: Why
[5:41 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: eww
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trying to bribe people with "double exp when you play on Switch."
[5:42 PM] Kamek: I spent more money on apex legends than I care to say
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He just snapped and Eiji Aonuma faded in.
[5:42 PM] Kamek: Lol why is he here then?,
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He says "I bet you saw me and thought I have information on Breath of the Wild 2. ...Sorry!"
[5:42 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: tl;dw just wait
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EW
[5:42 PM] Kamek: Oh what
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: eek
[5:42 PM] Kamek: Skyward sword remastered?
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is coming to the Switch.
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Nothing looks remastered about it though.
[5:43 PM] HeavyLobster: Skyward Sword is my least favorite mainline Zelda.
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "HD"
[5:43 PM] Kamek: Lol
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I can't recommend Skyward Sword, sorry.
[5:43 PM] Kamek: Man was it that long ago
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently, the Joy-Con is of higher-tech than the Wii Motion Plus.
[5:44 PM] HeavyLobster: It came out holiday 2011.
[5:44 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: eh I'll give it a shot and I still hav to get BoTW
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We've also made it possible to play with button controls."
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: A lot of people have been asking for that.
[5:44 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: HE'S STILL RIGHT HANDED LOL
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (The game has lots of other problems besides controls!)
[5:45 PM] Kamek: Hmmm
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf
[5:45 PM] Kamek: Ooo people are going to like that
[5:45 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ok that's pretty cool
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THOSE JOY-CONS ACTUALLY LOOK COOL.

Joy-Con The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Edition Hylian Shield Master Sword
The game isn't good, but these Joy-Cons are awesome.
(They'll probably drift, but...)

[5:45 PM] Kamek: Not sure how I feel about this
[5:46 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I'm not convinced about the joy-cons though
[5:46 PM] HeavyLobster: People are gonna be pissed if the "One More Thing" isn't good.
[5:46 PM] Kamek: He shouldn't have said that
[5:46 PM] Kamek: Anyone who played BOTW only  would hate skyward sword
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...yeah.
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Last announcement.

Splatoon 3 Little Buddy Smallfry Salmonid Inking jellyfish subway train to Splatsville
You'd think they'd get better modes of transportation by now.

[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Oh yeah, that happened.
[5:51 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: for the new fighters pass thing?
[5:51 PM] HeavyLobster: The Direct was at least respectable. Lot of necessary smaller announcements with a big Splat 3 teaser.
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WE TAKE THOSE
[5:52 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: highlights: BOTW2 delayed, Splatoon 3 lol
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can't delay BotW2!
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...It has no date to begin with!
[5:52 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
[5:53 PM] HeavyLobster: Has BOTW 2 reached Bayo 3/MP4 status?
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...no.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean, they're at least willing to acknowledge BotW2 still exists!
[5:54 PM] HeavyLobster: That is true.
[5:55 PM] Kamek: Okay
[5:55 PM] Kamek: I saw it
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND?
[5:56 PM] Kamek: ... I mean it happened
[5:56 PM] Kamek: I'm more curious to see rawk's reaction
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He apparently died.



What did YOU think of the Nintendo Direct? Since it's probably likely that whatever you wanted didn't happen, are you willing to compromise some of your feelings? Did anything from this Direct make you talk in ALL CAPS? Let KoopaTV know in the comments section! (You can tell how little Ludwig cared about the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement because he didn't bother taking screenshots.)


Here's what Pyra and Mythra's announcement means for Koopa Kingdom.
Ludwig DID go and play the Project TRIANGLE STRATEGY demo, AND filled out the survey. And told you how he filled it out.
Here is the dedicated presentation about Pyra and Mythra.
Here's some info on the Famicom Detective Club games.
The next Nintendo Direct happened at E3 2021.

  1. Hey I like Rex.

    It's a good Direct, but feels lackluster after the empty year of 2020.

    1. ...You...like...Rex? Huh.

      Some post-Direct thoughts:

      There's definitely advantages for what Nintendo did for game announcements throughout 2020 (spare yourself filler like that DC Girls chibi thing that's negatively ratio'd on YouTube), though who knows if PROJECT TRIANGLE would get the amount of attention it's getting now if it was a standalone announcement.

      I downloaded the demo to my Switch, so hopefully I actually play this one instead of leaving it on the digital shelf. >_>

    2. Even Star Wars: Hunters isn't ratio'd.

  2. I'm grateful that my power wasn't out at the time to get to watch it live. Here's some of my thoughts in general. I could not really care any less about the new Smash characters because I have never played Xenoblade before and it just does not appeal to me. Fall Guys is great fun and still pretty active on PlayStation. I typically grind at the beginning of each season and tend to play less near the end. Some of the skins are great as well, such as the recently added red panda skin. However, I am not going to buy it again. Mario Golf looks decent, but I'm not interested in sports games whatsoever. Next, I never suspected that Miis would return in a grand fashion, so it was surprising to see Miitopia coming to the Switch. I didn't play it on the 3DS, and I'm still not going to since it just seems rather dull to me. I also have a confession. I actually never finished Skyward Sword. I might have only made it towards the mid-point or so before I just stopped and moved on. Considering that the port will be full priced, I might just plug my Wii U back in and finish it or start over on there. I must admit the joy cons look really nice, though. Lastly, the best was certainly saved for last. At first, I thought that the next Splatoon game was going to be a spin-off open world adventure similar to the story mode, but it turned out to be a full blown sequel. It has only been a few years since Splatoon 2 released, but by next year, I think enough time will have passed for a sequel to be warranted.

    1. Splatoon 2 released in 2017, and Splatoon 3 will release in 2022... I think that's a wide enough gap!

  3. I am legitimately surprised that they didn't announce a Kirby game, or maybe I'm just super disappointed. I knew there wasn't gonna be any rhythm heaven or chibi robo, but I still thought they'd announce a big spring title. Guess they don't really need to, and we do still have all those anniversary's coming up. Regardless, judging this direct for what it was, it's still just okay. The main problem is that all of the games are pretty much in the same genre. That Famicom detective's remaster looks cool and i would probably get it, iiiiifffff it wasn't gonna be so expensive. It's much easier to just emulate the original, but don't tell Nintendo! Although it's nice Splatoon 3 is coming, I'm not sure if it's the kind of game that can take multiple iterations on the same console. They have to really shake up the gameplay. Otherwise I could see it becoming something like Mariokart or Marioparty. Still a blast, but lacking the innovation of previous titles.

    1. I MEAN, I DIDN'T EXPECT IT AT ALL. DID YOU? NO.

      Obviously best thing about the Direct.

  5. Famicom Detective Club, Project Triangle Strategy, World's End Club, and Miitopia (since I never got the 3DS version) made this Direct a good one for me.

    1. How much content is in Famicom Detective Club?
      You can regularly get the whole mainline Ace Attorney series for less cost than what both the Famicom Detective Clubs put together are. ($60 since getting one gives a $10 discount on the other.)

    2. They're both listed as less than 10 hours long on VNDB (at least the originals), so much less content than Ace Attorney. But that doesn't do me any good; I've already played Ace Attorney!

    3. Eek, under ten hours is kinda hard to justify.
