Yowsa, 2020 is getting out of hand
So how about 2020 guys! Amid all of the awful things happening, marketing is sort of all over the place. We could get a massive first-party announcement at any point with no buildup! Cats and dogs I tell ya!
Billed as the “last partner showcase of the year,” Nintendo dropped new news on us today from studios both big and indie via a new Nintendo Direct Mini partner showcase. Here’s the rundown.
- First up, Bravely Default II! Remember, this is a thing still. After getting a roughly four-minute rundown of some of the game’s mechanics, Nintendo dropped the news that the game finally has a release date: February 26, 2021.
