The video started by announcing that three new DLC packs are coming to Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer. The first pack, which launches today, introduces five new playable characters. Each one comes with their own unique abilities, such as Impa, who excels in ranged attacks, and Aria, who generates a Game Over when they miss a beat or get attacked.

The second pack adds 39 new songs, including remixes of currently available songs. Just swap the songs out in your settings, and play to your favourite melody. This pack aims to release before the end of October 2020.

The final pack introduces not only a new character but additional story content too. Symphony of the Mask lets you play as Skull Kid in a brand new map with even newer songs. Depending on which mask you don will determine which abilities you can use. As with the second pack, this pack will also be aiming to launch before the end of October 2020. A season pass, containing all three paid DLC, as well as bonus costumes for Link and Zelda, will be released today, with a physical and digital bundle of the base game with all DLC included launching on the 23rd October.

Rogue Company, a team based multiplayer shooter from HiRez Studios and First Watch Games, was announced that it will be heading to Nintendo Switch later this year. It was also announced that there will be an option for motion controls, and cross play and progression will be supported from day one. More details to be announced later today.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds received a new trailer and was announced the brawler would launch for Nintendo Switch on the 18th September. Pre-orders are now open.

For the first time since 2003, the cult classic, Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne will be revisited in an HD remaster in Spring 2021. In addition to this, Shin Megami Tensei V received its first look since 2017. Fans eagerly awaiting the title will be happy to know that the wait is nearly over with a 2021 release window.

Even though the presentation was fairly short, there was still a fair amount of information to unpack. What are you most looking forward to from this Nintendo Direct Mini? Let us know in the comments below or on social media.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
