The show focused on third-party titles coming to the Nintendo Switch
Nintendo has dropped a new Direct Mini: Partner Showcase today (August 26), which featured multiple third-party games headed to the Nintendo Switch.
The 10-minute presentation packed over 10 games into its short runtime, highlighting a range of titles, a heavy emphasis being on music-based titles. Kingdom Hearts: Melody Of Memory started off the proceedings, giving fans a new look at the new rhythm-based game in the franchise, alongside Just Dance 2021, which is said to feature 40 “hot” new tracks to dance along to.
Taiko No Tatsujin, the fan-favourite drumming game is getting an RPG makeover with the Rhythmic Adventure Pack. Accompanying this is Harmonix’s new title, Fuser, which showcased the multiplayer elements of the game.
Outside of rhythm games, Nintendo also announced some titles for action fans with World Of Tanks Blitz coming to the E-Shop as a free-to-play title today, and Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions, a Rocky inspired boxing game coming to the system.
Final Fantasy fans were treated to trio of games, as Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend will come bundled with the first three titles and a host of quality of life improvements. Finally, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 was also revealed, blending the two classic puzzle games into one package and is described as the “ultimate crossover”.
