Today Nintendo dropped yet another Nintendo Direct Mini out of nowhere. Like the previous Nintendo Direct Mini in July, today’s Direct was a partner showcase which was all about third-party titles. At 11 minutes long, there were more games to show off than the 8 minute Direct from last month. You can watch the entire Direct here:


The games that were showcased during the partner showcase are listed below in the order they appeared in:
  • Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memories (Releasing 11/13/20, pre-purchase available today)
  • Fuser (Releasing Fall 2020)
  • Taiko no Tatsujin (Releasing Winter 2020)
  • World of Tanks Blitz (Released today)
  • Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions (Releasing Spring 2021)
  • Collection of SaGa: Final Fantasy Legend (Releasing December 15th, pre-purchase available today)
  • Just Dance 2021 (Releasing November 12th)
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 (Releasing December 8th)
  • Minecraft Dungeons Creeping Winter DLC (Releasing September)
  • Jump Force Deluxe Edition (Releasing August 28th)
  • Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions (Releasing August 28th)
  • Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition (Releasing August 27th)
Whether this shadow dropped Direct will affect the release of a widely anticipated first party Direct remains to be seen.

Not going to lie, I'm hyped for Cystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition as I played the original all the time back in the day on the Gamecube. I never got to finish the game due to the Gameboy Advance adapter and mutilple players being a must to complete the later half of the game.

Me: hoping for at least something interesting to come out of this partner showcase.

Nintendo: DaNcE mOnKeY dAnCe MoNkEy DaNcE mOnKeY EHHHH EH!

Me: That song needs to 🤬 die.

Hopefully that actual direct rumor for the 28th still comes true, though I doubt it at this point. Nothing interesting was shown here. This felt like "****ty Music: Nintendo Direct Edition."

you actually didn't need other players to complete the main game, it was just a hell of a lot easier.

I went through the entire game single player, multiple times with each of the 4 races. It was possible, just not very fun.

I am hype for the remake as well. I still remember spray painting the moogle, and just like in star fox adventures being "wow'd" by the fur effects back then.

I remember there was a part where the game demanded me to have the Gameboy Advance adapter to progress. I didn't get pass that point. I think it was right after a dark castle or tower if my foggy memory serves me right.

yeah I'm pretty sure there wasn't a spot that required it, even though I haven't played the original in some time. I went through the whole thing with just a GCN controller. Never once needed a GBA and beat the final Boss
Memiroa
all with GCN


Square would have had to be out of their minds to make a GBA adapter and GBA required to complete a gcn game. You lost out on any multiplayer at all without them, but it would have been a very stupid business decision to make it required for single player.
