Dope!!! I thought this series was dead since AlphaDream went bankrupt. I was figuring a remaster at best, but we got something even better!

What a start to the direct! A new game in a series many fans thought was done for.

Absolutely wild that in the span of a year we get two Mario RPG remakes and a new M&L game.
That's 3 Mario RPGs in total released on Switch.
Nintendo has to see the appetite for Mario RPGs now and I really do think eventually we're getting a more direct RPG sequel to PM and PM: TTYD. A remake of PM might happen as well.

Does this mean we get nothing for 6 years and then a game in all three sub-ips in the 7th year each gen?

I'm not sure my heart could handle that kind of cycle lol.

I’d like to see a direct sequel to SMRPG, with some of the original team at the helm.

So is it this or Zelda that is going to be Nintendo’s major holiday release for 2024.

Late September is generally the start of the holiday release season.

This, Zelda, Mario Party and Dragon Quest are all three part of a holiday lineup. I think it is bad to venture all on one single big holiday game. People are different and even if some big IP brings in a lot of sales, other people want different things and therefore spreading out the lineup between multiple titles seems like a great idea.

Yeah kinda reminds me of 3DS holiday 2015 where it had a solid lineup of small-medium sized titles but nothing huge.

September 25-Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

October 9-Chibi Robo: Zip Lash

October 23: Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

November 6-Yokai Watch

November 20-Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon

Looks real fun.
They gotta stop using Luigi for comedy relief tho, always making he looks stupid so Mario can look better, it's getting pretty sad.

I think Nintendo took the "Year of Luigi" seriously when it turned out to be the biggest financial loss in the company's gaming history lol. Even though the reasons why had nothing to do with Luigi
