And now for my impressions of this presentation. There were a lot of big titles here, and most of the filler wasn’t taking up too much time either. I was most surprised by the inclusion of the rerelease of obscure Japan only game Live A Live, and quite pleased to see Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings here too. There were even some surprise DLC and update based content too. I’ll be glad to play Portal and Portal 2, and may even check out Chrono Cross. A lot of new and old games worth checking out are here, I’m quite satisfied, if worried about the state of my wallet.

That is what I make of the Nintendo Direct. What game are you most looking forward to here? What announcement surprised you the most? Let me Know in the comments below!
