9.13.18 Nintendo Direct news highlights - some huge announcements!
![nd.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVEuRaNRX1t9v4RSv5mFwGyu1LR8vvPFLNVygRJTRPamk/nd.jpg)

Yesterday we were treated to the biggest dump of Nintendo news since E3.  Some surprises, some things we already knew about and more.  Let's dig into the news:

### Luigi's Mansion 3 reveal

The GameCube launch game receives its first console sequel!  While there was one released on the 3DS, this is what we really wanted!  Coming in 2019.

### Yoshi's Crafted World reveal

The upcoming Yoshi game finally has a name!  With a Spring 2019 release date, the game is looking really sharp.  As a big fan of *Yoshi's Wooly World* on the Wii U, this is one we're looking forward to.

### An AVALANCHE of Final Fantasy titles!

Square Enix isn't messing around! In 2019, we're not only getting updated versions of *Crystal Chronicles* and *Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon*, but two additional new titles in *Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD* and *World of Final Fantasy Maxima*.  The icing on the cake is four core titles are getting HD re-releases on the Switch!  *Final Fantasy VII, XI, X, X-2 and XII* are all getting releases!

### Animal Crossing tease

FINALLY! A heavily requested series that skipped the Wii U (we're not talking about that board game abomination...that never happened.)  *Animal Crossing* was announced, but no footage or information is available yet.

### Katamari Damacy Reroll announcement

The PS2 original is getting a HD remaster, with new features for the Switch like gyro control using both JoyCons independently, which should be a great addition for those who like to tinker with that stuff.  I loved the original, so I'll likely revisit this classic when it releases later this year.

### Plus lots more!

Really excited to see a remaster of Katamari Damacy! One of my favorite off the wall titles on the PS2. But the real kicker is Luigi's Mansion 3!!

I was always a bit disappointed that the second one only came to the 3DS, especially since it was such a great entry in the series. I would have loved to play it on a big screen. And now we'll be able to! :)
