This week on the Pure Nintendo Podcast, Justin, Kirk, Trev, and Jemma discuss the recent Nintendo Direct, breaking down the announcements that we enjoyed the most.

Last week, we discussed a range of titles that we’re playing at the moment. This week, there’s a whole lot of new content to look forward to. We talk about our highlights from the 40-minute presentation, including the brand-new title Princess Peach Showtime. We finally have some footage of this Peach-centric outing, which was first teased in a previous presentation. In Showtime, Peach takes on various roles within a theatre setting, from a sword-weilding fighter to a classicly inspired detective. It looks interesting, and we’re keen to see more ahead of its March 2024 release.

A lot of the games covered in the showcase are remakes, ports or collections. We speculate about what this means in terms of the Switch’s lifecycle. A lot these are classic titles that new gamers might not have played, with everything from Contra to Super Mario RPG.

We’d love to know your thoughts on the show, and on the latest Nintendo Direct! Let us know in the comments section of YouTube.

Until next time, game on everyone!
