This morning, we got a surprise from Nintendo Direct. This is the newest Straight Mini: The Partner of the Year showcase was filled with lots of news, updated release dates and much more. A whole series of games and demos already today!
Perhaps the most amazing thing is that Hitman 3 and Control Ultimate Edition are both available in streaming (the latter is available today). In order to play these games, you must have a permanent Internet connection. There have been several such publications in Japan, including Resident Evil 7, but so far we have not seen a single publisher trying this in the United States. Will this trend continue next month, when the next generation of machines will be launched? It is clear that the switch can not handle more powerful machines, which could be a viable alternative, although I must admit that this seems to contradict the hybrid nature of the switch. In order to play these games, you need a permanent connection to the high-speed WiFi network, so in most cases you won’t be able to play them on the road. What do you think? Is that what you still want for the future? Let us know downstairs.
There are no other Heroes and Heroes 2 announced for the Sweech. In fact, they are both available in the online store today! The demonstration for the Hyrule Warriors is also scheduled for today: The age of disaster! You can play and save in the first chapter, the progress will then be transferred to the finals. Today HAL also launched a game called Part Time UFO eShop, in which you have to use your claw to fold different objects. Sounds like it could be fun.
As planned then, Brave Default II was postponed until the end of this year. The new publication will appear on the 26th. February 2021, just two weeks after the release of Super Mario 3D World. The story of the seasons will also be told next spring: Pioneers of the Olive City. Rebuild your farm from scratch when it’s finished on the 23rd. March 2021 will be published! More games were broadcasted live, so check below and read the full press release:
