Nintendo has just released a brand new Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase.

Nintendo does like to keep us on our toes. Out of nowhere here’s a new Nintendo Direct Mini to enjoy that showcases a raft of upcoming Switch titles.

Highlights include new footage from Bravely Default II – which now has a confirmed release date of February 26, 2021 – and a wild new trailer for No More Heroes III. The original No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are also now available to purchase via the Nintendo eShop


Other new games include Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, and post-apocalyptic sim, Surviving the Aftermath.

The biggest announcement, however, is that a streamable cloud version of Control: Ultimate Edition is out now. IO Interactive’s Hitman III will also receive a cloud release early next year. We can’t wait to see how they perform.

Finally, today’s Nintendo Direct also confirms that a free eShop demo of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will be released later today. All progress made in the demo will carry over to the full game, which is out on November 20, 2020.

Watch the Nintendo’s final partner showcase of the year right here.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
