WARNING: SPOILERS FROM THE NINTENDO DIRECT OF E3! Don't read unless you watched it or know what has been announced.
First of all, heya. I've been busy with music as usual, but I decided to drop by and watch the E3 Direct.
~Dragon Quest content in Smash: Personally, I'm not that interested in Dragon Quest -I only know it because of the famous Slimes- or anything, but that the Hero, coming as a fighter, has alternate appearances as alternate color schemes works. I feel like it's one of those Avatar-type characters -just like the Villagers or the Inklings- that can be customized at will. That works.
Hopefully it serves enough so I get my interest on the series; just like Castlevania and Pikmin did.
~Luigi's Mansion 3: I've seen little of the original Luigi's Mansion for GameCube -since I was still a baby back then- and haven't seen much either of Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon (aka Luigi's Mansion 2), but the third game doesn't stop catching my eye, ESPECIALLY because Gooigi can be controlled by another player. It can work so I use that side account my brother made for completing stories you have to reset all your data if you want to reset them, but we also used it to complete SMO together. The function of Online Play serves too. Come on Nintendo, we have too many Luigis. And Gooigis.
~The new Animal Crossing game: I was expecting this now that I am getting more into the series thanks to Pocket Camp. Unfortunately, even though in the Direct that revealed Isabelle for Smash it was told that the new AC game would come this year, it was pushed to Spring of next year. I know, a specific date was given, but yeah. Having to populate an island does catch my attention.
By the way; in the end of the trailer when the title is revealed; have you spotted the two 'default' Villagers that appear in Smash? I did.
~Banjo and Kazooie in Smash: After 20 long years of waiting... popular demand is finally satisfied at, probably over 1000%... the bear-and-bird duo finally made it. It was interesting how the same story than with King K. Rool's reveal was repeated, but with K. Rool with both Kongs -what, are they friends now?
Now Duck Hunt gets the punishment... and the dream of Banjo and Kazooie comes true! (Oh, and by the way... did you spot a Happee Sandbag at one point of the trailer? I've been taking many captures of it!)
A fact; if I mentioned 20 long years, it's because; did you know they were overdue since THE ORIGINAL SMASH for Nintendo 64? This list proves it; I know it's in Japanese, but the name placed in Number 8 reads their names (written as Banji-o~&Kazu~i):
However, the only thing that left me disappointed is that we got no info about Bayonetta 3. I know I'm still 16 -but turn 17 this year- and stuff, but I got into the series since last year. I almost complete the story of Bayonetta 2 in Infinite Climax -a difficulty harder than Hard- and still need to get better at the first game, but yes... no info may mean ANOTHER year of waiting... unless there's another Direct later this year and reveals it as something REALLY sudden. And no, Astral Chain -also developed by PlatinumGames- won't convince me. I'd die for Bayonetta 3's announcement.
Oh, and Splatoon 2's almost over; with its Final Splatfest announced for next month. I read it will last 4 complete days. I hope I still have the Online Service so I can dedicate all those days to it...
