There's quite a few games in the Nintendo Direct, so here's what caught my eye...

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania: I'd completely forgotten about this series! I'm tempted to dig out Super Monkey Ball 2 and give Monkey Dogfight a few rounds...

Mario Party Superstars: This could be a good one for pasta night - my sister and I borrowed one of the GC-era Mario Party games from a friend years back and spent many afternoons playing through it.

Metroid Dread: I claim that Metroid games are really horror games in platform form, as anyone who's been ambushed by a Metroid will know well. There's an excellent moment in the first Metroid Prime where you first discover a Metroid (fortunately trapped in a containment tank), scan it to be told that it's a Really Scary Thing... at which point the Metroid smashes its way out of the containment tank and noms your face off. Prime 3 turned that up to eleven by having you walk through a whole corridor full of Metroids-in-tanks, only to have to let them all out at the end of it...

WarioWare Get It Together: This looks every bit as bonkers as the original Wii version!

Tony Hawk Pro Skater: Wow, now this is a blast from the past!

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope: What.

Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity DLC: Want! I've actually completed the base game (well... I've not done all difficulty modes, but I have completed all challenges) which is a first for me with the Hyrule Warriors series - the challenges in the previous ones felt very repetitive and geared towards hardcore Dynasty Warriors players, while in Age of Calamity they were more varied, and in particular don't have impossible-to-achieve-but-required-to-unlock A ranks.

Skyward Sword HD: I've been umming and ahhing over this one - on the one hand, Zelda, on the other hand, I do have Skyward Sword already. But I have also picked up Twilight Princess HD and Wind Waker HD over the years... and it looks like they've tweaked the motion controls (which when they worked were amazing, though were also an absolute pain at times). And come to think of it, last time I tried it my Wii couldn't read the Skyward Sword disc either.

Zelda Game & Watch: Oooh, shiny! Again, between my sister and I we've already got multiple versions of just about every Zelda game (including the three on this)... but it's so shiny...

Breath of the Wild 2: So... some sort of Skyward Sword / Breath of the Wild / Twilight Princess (remember the city in the sky dungeon?) crossover with zombie Ganondorf? WANT!

(Bonus extra not in the Nintendo Direct) The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles: Interesting! It's been a while since the last Ace Attorney game...
