Despite being a Partner Showcase there's rumors of Nintendo's Wii franchise Endless Ocean making an appearance here.

Pocket Card Jockey's Apple Arcade remake from Game Freak is also rumored.

A demo for the already announced Contra: Operation Galuga is rumored.

Maybe the Xbox exclusive Pentiment shows up here.

Being a partner showcase, there's probably not gonna be too much that interests me here unless it's a complete out of nowhere surprise.    There's not even anything announced for Switch that I'm wanting that much this year.  Honestly the only thing I'd probably even want at the moment is just for them to finally put Twilight Princess HD on Switch lol Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll throw that in as a bonus.

Epic Mickey Rebrushed!

Battlefront collection with online play.

South Park game has solo play.

An exclusive brand new Super Monkey Ball game!

Pepper Grinder demo seems worth a download.

Killer Instinct and Blast Corps and other Rare games coming to NSO.

All rumors in my first post were proven true. Quite a decent Direct.

Battlefront collection is what I'm most hyped for, but as it's coming to other consoles, I'll get it there.

With that, and the recent Tomb Raider and Metal Gear rereleases, it's nice to see a bunch of that generation of games coming to modern systems.

Battlefront Collection is neat, a definite PC buy for me, and Penny's Big Breakaway being a surprise release is fun.  That's about it though.

I found this better than the past few directs, lol.

Ender Magnolia was the high point. Ender Lilies was an amazing metroidvania and I can't wait to play the sequel.

Now add to that, SMT V Vengeance, Gundam Breaker 4, Pepper Grinder, Epic Mickey Rebrushed, Pentiment, and Endless Ocean (my daughter will love that one)? Fantastic!

I'd say about 25% of what was shown interested me, maybe 30%, but I'm still undecided on whether getting Unicorn Overlord or not, and I'm also unsure about Epic Mickey: Rebrushed. I will say, though, that as someone who played, enjoyed, and still loves Drill Dozer, I'm all in for Pepper Grinder.
