Metroid Dread. End of list.

I have no need for Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda. However, I’ll take eight because it’s neat. Not particularly excited about it, if that makes sense. I own multiple versions of each of those games.

The sequel to Breath of the Wild is too far away for me to care about right now.

Luigi Dude:
Metriod Dread is the biggest.  I'm also looking forward to Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania and Wario Ware.  Breath of the Wild 2 will be great but that's probably November 2022 at the earliest now.

I would say the fact a new Kirby wasn't shown makes me excited for the next game.  Star Allies was over 3 years ago so this is the longest we've gone without a new Kirby mainline game since Return to Dreamland came out.  So maybe HAL actually is working on a 3D Kirby this time.

Also the rumored Toyko EAD developed Donkey Kong that a lot of leakers have been talking about the last month wasn't shown either.  I wonder if that game is actually real or if this is another Star Fox Grand Prix situation.

I really enjoyed this Direct. My expectations weren't low, but they were measured as Covid seriously affected the industry and development of games.

I loved Metroid Dread's announcement, despite thinking a new 2D Metroid was happening--it was still insanely cool to see. Mario Party Superstars looks like a blast. At first I thought when I saw the teaser image for the game, I went "oh, no, not a Switch port of Mario Party: The Top 100!", but this was so much more. I was excited to see Dragon Ball Z Kakarot arriving on the Switch. WarioWare was exciting, as was the long-awaited return of Advance Wars! Cruis'n Blast is supposedly a fun arcade racer, so I'm looking forward to that this fall and am beyond happy it's finally coming to the Switch.

Seeing Mario Golf: Super Rush in the Treehouse show was incredibly fun as well, as that's my most anticipated game still. Oh! Can't forget Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, which I can't wait to get!

All in all, a great E3 show.

(There was also some Belda game at the end, but I've never heard of it.)

Ian Sane:
With Metroid Dread, along with re-releases of Advance Wars and Super Monkey Ball, is anyone else feeling really old?  I can remember back when Metroid Dread was first whispered about.  I remember where I lived, the office I worked at, what this site looked like, and how I felt physically (less aches/pains, more hair).  I'm getting hit by this strange rush of nostalgia, which is funny because Metroid Dread is a new game.  My nostalgia isn't for it but for the time when news of that game first came out.

Nintendo could have called this new Metroid game something different since it has been so long but calling it specifically "Metroid Dread" makes it seem like such a huge deal.  Any serious Metroid fan knows about this game that got announced and had very little info revealed but was never completed, but now that loose thread is finally tied up.  In that sense it reminds me of Star Fox 2 finally getting a proper release.
