Here’s a recap of today’s surprise October Nintendo Direct Mini

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.

    “Later today” we’ll get a full video rundown of some of the fan-requested changes based on the demo.
