  • More interested in the ACNH Direct next month than anything announced this morning plus the announcement of Series 5 amiibo cards.

    Also 1AM 6 Oct for the final SSBU character.

    Of course they just dropped the PROJECT from TRIANGLE STRATEGY to get its final name like Octopath, but the demo was great and the LE looks nice.

    Splat3 single player should be good and Kirby looks interesting.

    The new Mario Golf courses are ok but are like the beginner course and not full on courses.
