All the New Games Nintendo Suddenly Announced At Its September 13th Direct Event


Last night, Nintendo held a Direct event to ostensibly showcase its upcoming online service. However, the company dropped a surprisingly huge number of game announcements. Here’s what you might have missed.

Nintendo Direct events tend to be a bit of a mixed bag, sometimes featuring a few minor game announcements, sometimes dropping huge bombshells. Yesterday, we got a bit of both, when at the very beginning of the event, Nintendo casually announced that Luigi’s Mansion 3 will be coming to the Switch in 2019. The company didn’t stop there, though. They also announced a bunch of other games.

Katamari Damacy Reroll Is an HD Remake Coming to the Switch This Winter

Katamari Damacy is a fun and weird game where you play as an ever-growing ball of stuff that rolls over other stuff to add it to your own monstrous body until you’ve consumed everything that is.

This four-person side-scrolling platformer is dropping on the Switch on January 11th. The Switch version will also come with two additional characters, Toadette and Nabbit. You’ll also get Super Luigi U as part of the package.

Diablo III Is Coming to the Switch On November 2nd And You Can Play As Ganondorf

Blizzard is getting in on the Nintendo action, with Diablo III: Eternal Collection. Now you’ll be able to fight demons in the latest version of the classic dungeon crawler wherever you go. Of course, it wouldn’t be Nintendo without extra characters, armor, or items from other Nintendo games.
