Everything Nintendo talked about during this morning’s Nintendo Direct broadcast

Nintendo have debuted a new 45 minute Nintendo Direct broadcast this morning, covering a range of titles releasing for their 3DS and Nintendo Switch consoles over the next two quarters. You can watch the broadcast in full, and get a full list of everything Nintendo talked about, after the jump.

The broadcast began with a rundown of what’s on the way for Nintendo 3DS.

Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon

New legendaries, new areas, new character looks and clothing. Purchase by January 10 and get a special Rockruff and 12 quickballs. November 17. Pokeball 3DS arriving on November 3.

Battle it out in turn-based strategy once again, dropping later this month.

Metroid: Samus Returns
Our review on this amazing return to one of gaming’s most beloved series dropped yesterday. The game itself arrives on Saturday.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
OBJECTION! It has been a while since we’ve seen Apollo Justice. His only solo outing to date, taking over from series hero Phoenix Wright, is getting a 3DS upgrade of its own.


From there, the focus turned to big releases coming for the Nintendo Switch:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
JRPG goodness, yours to embark upon starting December 1.

New Levels: Kelp Dome, Snapper Canal
New Weapon: Tenta Brella

A smashy good time in the vein of Dynasty Warriors and Hyrule Warriors. Drops on October 20.

Snipperclips Plus
New content on the way! YESSSSS.

Morphies Law
Body morphing multiplayer shootery. No release date but its dropping during Q4 2017.

Rocket League
Still no release date here either, but set for release during Q4 2017.

Arena of Valour
Yep, that’s a Switch MOBA. We actually think this could work gangbusters. Beta drops in Q4 2017 so if you want to try it out, get involved.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Todd Howard’s Favourite Game drops November 17 on the Switch in Europe and the Americas.

Doom (2016)
Oh my god. Demon murder on the go is all I’ve ever wanted. Q4 2017.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
OH MY GOD. The only thing better than “demon murder on the go” is “nazi murder on the go.” Coming in 2018.

It looks like Smash Bros single player and we’re very into it.
