Last week’s surprise Nintendo Direct was a great one for gamers, bringing with it some exciting announcements. Fans of Super Mario Bros. were particularly delighted to hear about the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Wonder and the Super Mario RPG remake. Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 and Batman: Arkham Trilogy were also announced, among other games. Sonic Frontiers is getting new DLC to celebrate Sonic’s birthday, and the upcoming Sonic Superstars will include Lego Sonic the Hedgehog content.
What Our Writers Are Playing This Weekend
Our Nintendo Life writers are gearing up for some serious gaming this weekend. One writer plans to check out the new content in Sonic Origins’ ‘Plus’ expansion, while another is considering purchasing Final Fantasy XVI from the PSN store. Another writer is eager to play Circuit Superstars, an excellent racing game that recently became available on the Switch.
Other writers are revisiting classic games. One is playing through the original six Professor Layton games, while another is enjoying some Dreamcast classics like Rez, Border Down, and Fire Pro Wrestling D. Some are playing newer games, like Pikmin 3 Deluxe and the latest season of Fortnite.
Game of the Week: Circuit Superstars
Our Game of the Week is Circuit Superstars, a racing game that mixes arcade fun and simulator elements to create a unique experience. The game recently became available on the Switch after a two-year wait, and it’s definitely worth checking out.
Despite the excitement over the Nintendo Direct announcements, some writers are feeling a bit let down by the lack of news about Professor Layton. One writer is finding solace in playing through the original games, while another is holding out hope for a New World of Steam update.
Overall, it’s shaping up to be a great weekend for gaming. Whether you’re revisiting old favorites or trying out new games, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. So sit back, relax, and get ready to play!
