 NINTENDO SWITCH NEWS

Nintendo Direct September 2017 - Live blog

Keep on refreshing for the latest details

Product: Nintendo Switch | Manufacturer: Nintendo
 
It feels like only yesterday we were here covering the most recent Nindies Showcase, but I'm certainly not complaining. 

In some areas of the world it'll be an appropriate time and in others it's pretty darn late, however we're all here for one thing: the games. 

With more from Super Mario Odyssey promised, plus a look at what's coming on 3DS and Switch over the next few months, it's shaping up to be 45 minutes of class content.

11:48 PM - Of course, the presentation ends with a lengthy look at Super Mario Odyssey. We get a bit of a backstory as to how Mario and Cappy came to be partners, and shows off a little more footage of the curious cap in motion. 

In addition the kingdoms are being listed off one after the other and the next area, Shiveria in the Snow Kingdom (as previously predicted), Bubblaine in the Seaside Kingdom, and more kingdoms that will remain secret for now.

The long as the short of this section is - there's a lot in this game. A lot. Tons of things to do, to collect, and to explore. We'll just have to wait for more information to come about, or just for October 27th when the game launches.
