Every Nintendo Direct that comes out feels like Christmas! What fun do they have in store for us this time? Let’s dive into the February Nintendo Direct and see what announcements they’ve got.
In the announcement for the Direct, Nintendo said they’d be focusing on available games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and also on upcoming games for the Switch. You can read more about the announcement here!
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t the part I was most excited for. Every time a new character is due to be announced my friends and I go on a whirlwind of speculation. My pipe dream character is Professor Layton, formerly Banjo & Kazooie, so I’ve felt pretty happy about the DLC fighters so far.
Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles join the Smash Bros. roster! As one fighter, you can swap between the two of them at will on the battlefield.
