A bit disappointing gotta say. But if they show Persona 3, 4 and 5 and Mario + Rabbids I'm fine.

I wonder if Bayonetta 3 would technically be considered a third party release?

It would. Bayonetta is developed by a partner, Platinum. So theoretically, we should be seeing it tomorrow even though Nintendo is funding the project.

Smash is also developed by a partner, but hasn't been in any of the Partner Showcases. So I wouldn't be banking on Bayonetta 3 showing up.

Nintendo owns smash bros. Nintendo does not own Bayonetta. That’s the difference.

They don't own the IP, but they do co-own Bayonetta 2 and they probably co-own Bayonetta 3.

Nintendo is treating it as a first party game unlike Age of Calamity which showed up in a partner showcase.

I'm not sure how they consider it different though. Both Nintendo published games by a third party. I feel like it's still on the table but just unlikely.

Age of Calamity is published by Koei Tecmo in Japan and elsewhere it's "licensed to be sold as a Nintendo product".
Bayonetta 3 is published by Nintendo everywhere.

Ah. I wasn't aware. That does make sense that they fall into different categories then.

Nintendo has never really been fussed over those kinds of distinctions. They'll show what they want to show.

Looks like I'm fine. And with Nier Automata even more than that.

Mini direct? So nothing from the big N. Guess we have to wait a few months more.

It would be funny if persona doesn't show up haha.

The cynical part of me wouldn't be very surprised.

So I saw, along with things I didn’t expect but was pleasantly surprised by.
