Today’s Nintendo Direct has just wrapped and here’s a full look at the entire stream. Take a look, and we’ll post our thoughts about it below.

To me, the biggest surprise of this video was the announcement they are porting the original Luigi’s Mansion to the Nintendo 3DS! That game was one of the launch titles of the original GameCube, and it is great to see Nintendo bring it back on the same platform they released its sequel on.

Let’s get this first one right out of the bag now, Super Smash Bros is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018. Mario, Link and Splatoon characters have been seen in the initial trailer.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is coming May 2018 exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.

No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year! I always thought Travis would feel right at home in the digital world, and now it looks like he will be making a home there in this game.

Octopath Traveller (yes that is it’s finished title) is getting released on the Nintendo Switch in June 2018. It will be getting a Collector’s Edition release on the same day.

Splatoon 2 is getting an incredible single-player DLC expansion. You play as a new character who looks like an octoling. I don’t know about you, but I was getting a Portal vibe while watching it’s trailer. It’s coming this summer and it will be $19.99. Anyone who preorders the game now will be able to get some special in-game items they can use now.

No Pokémon announcements were made, which is odd since Nintendo and Game Freak confirmed a Pokémon title is coming to the Nintendo Switch. I guess we will have to wait until E3 2018 or Pokémon World Championships 2018 before anything further is announced about it.

What did you guys think about the video? Any surprises? Anything you wish they had included? Post a comment below!
