Nintendo showcased a Nintendo Direct Mini today that focused on releases coming from Nintendo’s partners in the near future, with the reveal of Cadence of Hyrule DLC, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD, and Shin Megami Tensei V’s release date (or year, if we want to be specific) proving to be the highlight of the show.

- Three DLC packs are coming to Cadence of Hyrule: a character pack (that’s available today), a melody pack, and a ‘Symphony of the Mask’ story pack that focuses on Skull Kid from Majora’s Mask. The original game and all of its DLC will be made available in one sweet package on October 23rd 2020.
- Hi-Rez Studio’s upcoming online third-person shooter Rogue Company revealed a new character named Glitch. Some gameplay footage was shown off too, which looked pretty cool – even if it isn’t really my kind of game. More news is expected to come for the game later today.
- Some WWE superstars were shown playing 2K’s upcoming WWE Battlegrounds. I’m pretty excited for this game, but I couldn’t help but to find that its presence here felt a little out of place. I can imagine that a lot of Nintendo fans weren’t too psyched for this…
- Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD was revealed, with it due to hit the Nintendo Switch in Spring 2021. Also, Shin Megami Tensei V was confirmed to be receiving a simultaneous worldwide release in 2021, which is pretty exciting news for the JRPG fans out there.
It was a pretty decent showing overall, especially for a Nintendo Direct Mini that was only revealed to be coming this morning. Still, I’m sure some fans might have been hoping for a bit more, with just the Cadence of Hyrule DLC reveal and Shin Megami Tensei news proving to be the segments that really stood out. Luckily, Nintendo also revealed that we’ll be seeing more Nintendo Direct Minis in the near future, so there’s plenty to look forward to this year.
Hopefully, we may see another full-fledged Nintendo Direct in the future too…
