Nintendo Direct 4/12/17 Nintendo Switch Edition

After learning about all sorts of 3DS games coming out in the near-ish future, we also were told about games coming to the Nintendo Switch. This list is also just as impressive as the 3DS list.

On June 23rd we are getting three new Legend of Zelda Amiibo. A Majora’s Mask Amiibo of Young Link and the Goron Mask. A Skyward Sword Link Amiibo. Plus, a Twilight Princess Link Amiibo.  They look very crisp and clean, and will certainly give you something special in Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

On July 21st, We finally get the remaining smash Amiibo. With Corrin, Bayonetta, and Cloud getting their own Amiibo. Each will have two different Amiibo based on two appearances. We will get both Male and Female Corrin, Long and Short Haired Bayonetta and Modern and Classic Cloud Amiibo.It really goes to show why it took so long for these figures to come out as they all look so good.

We were then treated to a whole segment on the game Arms with an introduction to the game’s commentator Biff. There are all sorts of types of Arms with different effects when charged. You can train to gain currency to expand your arsenal. The Ramen Bomber MinMin is a new character. Can deflect punches with kicks. Left Arm changes into a dragon.
