Nintendo Direct Summary: September 2017

Nintendo crammed new reveals and information for over 40 titles in last night’s Nintendo Direct. Taking the Spotlight segments were Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Project Octopath Traveler and of course, Super Mario Odyssey.

Some of the most notable reveals were from Bethesda as they are bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II to the Switch with the former in Winter this year and the latter in 2018. On a more peculiar note, Minecraft is coming to the New Nintendo 3DS ‘soon’ but with no word on compatibility with other versions.

The Arcade Archives seems to follow the traditional Virtual Console model, but without hearing the Virtual Console branding, it’s safe to say it’s likely coming in another form. The Archives seems to be an emulator for Nintendo’s arcade games of the past, with games being sold individually just how the familiar VC model functions. Mario Bros will be the first title in this series.
