Once again Nintendo acts as a surprise, and once again no Zelda Breath of The Wild 2. Or Super Mario Collection. Or Metroid Prime 4. In short, we got it: in these days the rumors that have been chasing each other were promising. They had rekindled the hope of seeing something important soon. There was talk of a real Direct coming Friday, and at the same time the rumors about a Pro version of the Switch were rekindled.
Something finally arrived, but it wasn't what many were hoping for: it is in fact a Direct Mini, a new type of appointment that Nintendo inaugurated in July – while it had recently broken the radar silence with Indie World. It is a format focused exclusively on third-party games, and the Kyoto giant had already anticipated that there would be more appointments of this type. And after all, this Direct Mini does not automatically rule out another Direct Friday: Nintendo, after all, is unpredictable.
Today, in the meantime, there have been 12 titles arriving on Switch, including some rythm games such as Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory by Square Enix (scheduled for 2020, but more precise indications are missing), Fuser by Harmonix, Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythmic Adventure Pack and Just Dance 2021.
