Tetris 99 is the newest installment of this iconic gaming franchise. Tetris has a way of leading the puzzle genre of gaming, from the first VR puzzle game to now the first Battle Royal puzzle game. This installment Tetris puts you up against 98 other players, for a total of 99 players in a room. Tetris 99 is only available to customers of the Nintendo Switch online service, and it’s free. I have been barley able to pull myself away from Tetris long enough to write this up. From the hour I have played I have not waited longer then 30 seconds to get in to a match, and I have not experienced any lag or slow down, I have also never been disconnected or booted out of a game. If you are a fan of puzzle games this is defiantly for you. Also this is a great perk for Nintendo Switch online customers.
With the first Nintendo Direct of the year less then 24 hours away, lets talk about what we might see tomorrow. With the out cry from the Nintendo fan base at a all time high, so much so that investor are asking Nintendo if they are still having directs or not. It is fun to speculate as to what games will be in the direct, and with a time of 35 minutes there is a whole lot that can happen. My best guesses would be we see some of the new Yoshi game coming in March. Nintendo has said they will talk about the new Fire Emblem game. I would think that Nintendo would give a little information on the new Luigi’s mansion game for the Nintendo Switch. The same would go for the new Animal Crossing game for the Nintendo Switch as well.
Built up frustration
One thing that is not fun about Nintendo Directs are, all of the salty and angry post from people who wholeheartedly believed every single Direct rumor out there. We all know a twitter account or a YouTube channel, that will for the next weeks to come just pour hate and shade at the Big N for how horrible the Direct was. First Nintendo did not make all of these rumors up an swear they are true, so please don’t hate Nintendo for that, hold the source of the rumor responsible for lying to you. Second remember that Nintendo likes to focus 6 months to a year in advance so don’t be expecting any announcements for 2023 (Metriod). Really what I am trying to say is, we all love Nintendo and want to see them do well, but please giver your hopes and expectations a reality check before watching this Nintendo Direct tomorrow.
This week I’m joined by Mr. Bad Bit, Joseph Moran from The Trophy Room! We discuss PUBG, Kingdom Hearts VR and take a big look at this week’s Nintendo Direct! And we asked you for your impressions of the Direct in our Mailbag Segment!!
This was hands down one of the most exciting announcements from the Nintendo Direct. Nintendo trolled us by leading us to believe Animal Crossing was getting announced then revealing Isabel in Smash. Then pulling back out to Mr. Nook and revealing that Animal crossing was, in fact, coming in 2019!

Most Nintendo fans after this year’s E3 were left with mixed emotions. Smash Bros was the game that got the most stage time. For people who don’t enjoy the Smash franchise was there enough for them to look forward to. I have some good news for them. I have a strong feeling that there will be a Nintendo direct in the first half of September. The last two years Nintendo has had a direct in September. In 2016 there was one on the 1st of September. Then in 2017 there was another Nintendo direct on the 13th of September. Nintendo really likes this time slot to give themselves a big boost before the holiday season. Also during the tree house we were assured that Nintendo has lots more surprises before the end of the year.
