Thoughts on the latest Direct
*Meant to have this up last week but as life would have it I was unable to get it done. Here are just a few of the things I liked from that presentation.*
First things first its not delayed which is great news. There was some worry about this as the rumor mill had been turning something fierce lately. They showed a new video and showed off a new area that will be in game. Nintendo and Platinum are doing there thing and I am really looking forward to seeing how the game plays on the U. I am looking forward to jumping back in to the Arwing, it has been to long.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions Sharp FE
This is the crossover between Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei. Nintendo finally gave a release date as well as a little more insight into the game. The North American release is keeping the Japanese voice track, personally happy about that. There aren't that many JRPG's on the U so this will be a welcome game to fans of the genre. Here's hoping that the game does well as the JRPG is one of my favorite gaming genres.
Azure Striker Gunvolt 2
One of my favorite games on the 3DS is getting a sequel. The original game is a lot of fun and reminds me of the old school Mega Man games. From what was shown in the direct it looks like there will be a new character in this game. This one is on my radar as I thoroughly enjoyed the first game in the series.
The first game was a lot of fun. Square Enix is good at what they do, I have to give them that. While I did have a few issues with Bravely Default it is an very fun game and I expect Bravely Second to be the same. There are new jobs and the demo is going to have the same gifts as the first game had. I am looking forward to how this game will shape up as I did enjoy the story of the first one.
Hyrule Warriors Legends
Okay, I'm going to be completely honest here the main reason I am looking forward to this game is so that I can add the new characters in to the Wii U game. Other than that this game does look good and will introduce an entirely new character by the name of Linkle. I am looking forward to trying out the new characters and unleashing all types of good natured hell.
Metroid Prime Federation Force
Now this is what they should have done at e3 2015. They actually explained the game and how it fits within the Metroid storyline. Had they done this at e3 I think that the outcry would not have been as bad with this game. Although I still have my reservations about Blast Ball I am looking forward to the story and what lore this game will add to the Metroid universe.
Overall I thought that the Direct was good and needed. It had been a while since the last one and with all of the rumors that were floating around it was good to hear from the company themselves. I am looking forward to some good gaming in the following months.
