Nintendo's first direct of 2021 was a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, including surprise announcements for Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and much more. We cover everything in the show (as well as some other things that were conspicuously missing).
But first, we'll talk game announcements (such as the upcoming Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Switch Compilation, and the Kingdom Hearts' series first appearance on PC). Then it's on to the news, like the bizarre combo that is the Pokémon Day Virtual Concert with Post Malone, the reports that Stadia executives mislead employees before the company's mass layoffs, speculations about what's next after the Nintendo Switch, and the new paper detailing how pigs are actually pretty good at video games.
Finally, we wrap up the show with a look back at The Legend of Zelda on the game's 35th anniversary.
