So there's going to be a Direct on the 12th. Who's hype? I know I am, though I just know it won't feel the same without Mr. Iwata.

My body is ready. Hopefully the Smash DLC will be announced, weren't we supposed to get that a month ago?

I miss Iwata. :'(

LUCAS AMIIBO YES IT WILL BE MINE. I was expecting him to be released mid-2016, I can't wait! Shame that it doesn't come out before Christmas, but I'm very hyped.
I haven't played any Star Fox games before, but Star Fox Zero looks really good. I might actually get it.
Even though we already knew it was coming thanks to those hackers who apparently hate surprises, but let me be honest - of the game generations before Wii, Twilight Princess needed a remake the least. When the heck will they remake one of the first 2 Zeldas?! I've been DYING to play a Zelda II that's possible to finish!
Not too sure what to think of the new Smash DLC? I haven't played Final Fantasy, but do we seriously need more bland anime swordsmen? Stage looks pretty good though.
Also, I love all of those angry EB fans raging over Mother 3 on VC for Japan only. (HEAVY SARCASM) Hey... weren't these the same guys who were saying things along the line of, "Please Nintendo, just put Mother 3 on the Virtual Console - even if it's Japan-only!"

Overall I enjoyed it, and so did many others it seems. Not to long ago a bunch of pessimistic Nintendo "fans" were saying that they "lost faith in Nintendo" because of one E3. All I can say is - tides turn.

I myself don't really enjoy this direct. It's not good, it's not bad, it's just meh. They talk about stuff that we already know about and it's RPG-heavy; I'm not a heavy RPG consumer either. The Mario stuff is not that impressive, and Ultra Smash is turning out to be the massive disappointment it is.

People say that they "lost faith in Nintendo". What they do and what they say are two very different things. Also, remember that 2008 Direct where the only "highlight" was Wii Music? Yeah... I'm sure people said the same thing, and I bet they're still playing Nintendo games today.

Even that direct had a few good things. Like Ultra Smash (which looked promising, but it broke records as the worst Mario Tennis game in the series) and Star Fox Zero. amiibo Festival can suck it, though.

Not to mention, friggin' Cloud in Smash Bros. Not excited at all. I just want another Nintendo character or Rayman...

Yay another Fire Emblem character. Saw that one coming...

And Bayonetta. I would say I didn't see her coming if so many people weren't begging for her. I would also be semi-okay with her getting in if she didn't look like the most annoying character yet. Maybe it's just how they played her for the direct, but I do not look forward to fighting her at all.

No Rundas.

No Isaac.

No Shovel Knight.

The only DLC character I actually cared about at all was Lucas.

On the bright side, I still have until the end of January (And hopefully early February) until I have to fight... her... online, so better make Online Smash last.

Sorry if I sound salty but... ugh...

I'm just happy Geno got a costume. More than I could ever expect.

Honestly tho I didnt expect Bayonetta to win the ballot. I mean she was in the top 20 most requested characters thats for sure,but there were other characters that were more requested like Banjo or Isaac. Well shows that other countries than US exsists( the rue reason why shovel knight didnt win) and not everyone who voted where active in the community : P. I am not mad tbh. Sure I didnt get Layton but iy doesnt matter. It was just a simple poll in the end. That and if you ask me Bayonetta isnt even that bad. Could have been worse * shrug emoji. One thing I am mad about and thats: why didnt we get one winner per region (one us winner one european winner andnone jp winner). That wpuld have been satisfying (we would have provably gotten banjo/shovel knight abd jibanyan respectively,as Bayonetta was the european winner

The geno costume is great tho

Also xan if you want I can comfort you by explaining why your most wqnted didnt get in as I may have an idea

Rundas: Rundas is much like characters like Phoenix Wright,Ray MKII or even my most wanted (professor Layton) . A character with strong but small support. The thing isat the end of the day,Rundas probably wasnt in the top 20 most requested characters and such,didnt make the cut. Its understandable. Besides,as much as I hate to say it Rundas was an one shot character from a series that Nintendo gives a crap about. So no surprise that he didnt get in (I actually like Rundas but wanted to point this out)

Shovel knight: now I am surprised with this. Shovel knight was probably the most requested character in the US and would have been a great addition as a symbol of Nintendos and the indie game industry coming along well (see nindies) and with a unique moveset to the boot. However there is a clear reason why he didnt get in: while he was one of the (even if not THE most voted) in the west almost no one in Japan knows him and probably didnt vote him. So while his votes here been a lot,he most likely got next to no votes in Japan. This is also likely reason why other highly popular candidates like Banjo or Shantae didnt get the cur.
