Looks like Spelunky and it’s even Spelunkier (not to be confused with Spelunker) sequel are coming out at the end of the month.

That’s quite a lot of Splunk!

Nintendo quietly dropped a WarioWare demo last night. Basically one level with no boss micro game, but it gives you an idea of how the different characters can make micro games play differently.

Apparently a FCC filing for what people are suspecting is a Switch controller of some kind is going non-confidential Friday, so we may be seeing… something peripheral related… at the Direct.

Hoping for something delightfully absurd like a Game Boy-shaped VMU-ish thing, for playing GB games you get from Nesflix.

Oh boy I can't wait for them to confirm NSO Game Boy and N64 and show us Metroid Prime 4 footage and announce Oracle of Ages/Seasons remakes and bring Mother 3 to the US and reveal another Smash DLC pass and remake Thousand Year Door and bring back Alphadream for the Mario & Luigi series and show off a new F-Zero!

And I will riot if none of these things happen!

People are expecting a drift-proof joycon, or an N64 replica. And people would be delighted by that.

But this is Nintendo, so it’s going to be a replica of the Colecovision Super Controller or they’re finally making good on the promise of the Vitality Sensor

It'll end up being a Labo thingie you just put at the end of a toilet paper cardboard tube and then you can pretend it's an arm cannon and shoot stuff in Metroid.

.....
... That'd actually be kinda cool.

I partly jest. I acknowledge that they do sometimes drop cool stuff I like, but I (like many here) aren't squarely in their target demographic anymore. I mean, how many people even remember StarTropics? (I, too, would love that and many other things mentioned here!)

Also, yeah, I'd take anything they put on NSO - N64 or Game Boy would rock.

It occurred to me some time ago that my tastes have largely moved on to other things and that my love of Nintendo is rooted in nostalgia more than practice. Outside of the big name first-party titles - your Marios, your Zeldas, your Metroids, etc. - my Switch is a dust collector. It's like dutifully buying albums over the years from a band you loved as a teenager only to realize that, while you appreciate them still, the music really hasn't been "yours" for a very long time. I've made my peace with it.

And the StarTropics torch shall never fall.
