2019 may be testing many of us through various trials and tribulations outside the world of video games, but it has always been a wonderful year for gamers all around, and especially for Switch owners. Nintendo's integrated handset has gone from strength to strength, with a host of excellent games, a good internal update that has significantly improved battery life and, the only portable version called the Switch Lite.
Looking back to 2019, we’ve put together some of our favorite Nintendo moments from the past year and introduced them below. Some were stubborn, some shocking, some sad, but they all excited our hearts and made us enjoy being on the Nintendo Hype Train all year and not just E3.
So stay tuned and join us as we remember Nintendo's best moments of the last twelve months …
Banjo-Kazooie Super Smash Bros. Ultimate E3 2019 revealed
Rumors and speculation surround the upcoming challenge Super Smash Bros. Finally escalate with every new announcement of a fighter as they become & # 39; t bright & # 39; more. We are not saying that the left-field elections are really; Only that in a world where rights, licenses and books completely dominate all media structures, it may sound impossible & # 39; that a digital creation owned by a single company can it is possible
The big console video game companies, in particular, felt like a pointless split – an baby you would think Master Chief or Nathan Drake could all appear on Smash! As Microsoft continues to get more involved with Nintendo, perhaps we should have predicted the announcement of Banjo and Kazooie as Challenger # 3, but somehow the moment when Jiggy crashed into the bottom of JK's tree house is still catching on. To fans of the original N64 game, it sounded like a dream and there was something in Team NL hit by a full back (manly, apparently) tears of confusion, joy and happiness.
In fact, everything was beyond their control. Maybe it was a heartbeat when they heard the Spiral Mountain theme again. Or maybe it was the enthusiasm of the bear and the team of birds that were stationed at Dareware, Diddy and King K-Rool raising their voice as they reached our destination. Or maybe it was in these dark, divisive moments that Sakurai and yours were. well done & # 39; to everyone here & # 39; a mantra that warms our hearts. Everyone it is here, too everything will be fine. Regardless of the exact reason our couple got all the excitement, Banjo-Kazooie Smash revealed the the same master K.Rool revealed the trailer) we already had a look.
If you want an idea of the levels of happiness in the NL Towers (well, because some of us) during the announcement during the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, these scenes from the NYC Nintendo store are a perfect balance. What a world!
An outpouring of love is when Reggie Fils-Aimé retires
Maybe we should have seen it coming; after all, everyone wants to go out on top. After a disappointing Wii U years, the backlash against the many changes made by eThekwini Minister created the perfect opportunity for US President Nintendo to leave the company with a headache.
In the meantime, it has emerged that Reggie has been a staple of his departure for a while, coaching young Bowser (Doug, that is) the presidential role and ensuring his legacy will continue long after the big man has dropped the desk and left the building.
Reggiephiles may be worried to see his body ready to leave NOA's Redmond offices (in fact, 23,000 of them signed a petition to get him a new office chair when his current 16-year-old model was revealed – with Herman Miller forced to send him a brand new Aeron) , but it's amazing no being hired by Nintendo has enabled the exec to open up a lot and showcase the person who used to practice the best images he presented at Nintendo years ago. Every speech still has that trademark of an organization but is honest enough to avoid sounding like a cardboard issue. It doesn't make sense.
Immediately after retiring, he snapped a passionate Twitter handle for @ Reggie and became an avid follower since leaving office. He has made it his mission to inspire young business leaders through speeches and discussions, and he totally embraces the love of his years at Nintendo that he instilled in his fans.
He may not be at Nintendo in any official capacity, but his spirit lives on at NOA and in his communications and general presence in the video game world (he presented the award at The Game Awards back on December 12), you & # 39; be forgiven for not knowing you left the game.
& # 39; Change Mini & # 39; you are real! The switchch Lite revealed
After months of rumors, speculation, a Nvidia chip teardown, an industry analyst interview and a truckload of speculation, the & # 39; Swingch Mini & # 39; s was revealed to be in the colorful form of a small, cheap switchch Lite.
Most of the rumors were right about the price point, price factor and so forth, and while Switch Lite is not everyone's cup of tea, it seems to work for its viewers. We couldn't quite believe that Nintendo released the & # 39; switch & # 39; on the switch, but they also released 3D faster 3DS than you can say & # 39; New 2DS XL & # 39; so we really shouldn't have been surprised.
With a great library of bright games, switchch Lite is a smart little tool if you can just play games on your TV and after such a long time of gossiping and hearing, the last time you see a finished product feel better. Now just make one that looks like a Game of Thrones, Nintendo! Speaking of …
