And that wraps up the announcements for the Nintendo Direct Mini. I feel there were some good announcements here, but much of the information involves games I am unlikely to play. I was most interested in the DLC for Super Smash Bro.s Ultimate, the Bravely Default II demo, and the details of the Pokemon Expansion Pass. There wasn’t too much here, but it was a mini direct, so there should be fewer major announcements to begin with. I am still satisfied with the amount of content, and have some things to look forward to.
