Nintendo Direct 6.18.2024 Review! Zelda, Mario, and the Long-awaited...

Jun 19,2024 | FUNLAB-Cheriko

Hey gamers! Cheriko here :).

Watched the latest Nintendo Direct on June 18, 2024?

Sadly there's still no news of new Nintendo console this time haha, whether you're anxious about new console or not, you should already be anxious about some new games after watching this Direct, right? Because there's a great lineup of games this time around! Nintendo never gives gamers a break just because a replacement is around the corner. If you haven't watch it, this blog will help you get anxious too :P.

The fact that there's no Rhythm Heaven yet means that Nintendo Switch will live longer lol

Here's us FUNLAB to summarize the highlights of this Direct's game lineup for you :)

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom

It's been a long time coming, a brand new 2D Zelda game! Not only that, but The Legend of Zelda really is The Legend of Zelda now, because this time Zelda is the main character! You can use her wisdom, with a variety of echos and ingenuity, to save the kingdom and Link!

The Legend of Zelda series blends puzzle, action, adventure, and exploration with an emphasis on instant, immersive adventures. Like The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, which previously came in Nintendo Switch. 2D Zelda series may not look as stunning as 3D Zelda like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but it's just as creative and fun.

This game will be released on September 26, 2024

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom

Also the new style Nintendo Switch Lite will be released on the same day. For more information on whether it's worth buying the Nintendo Switch Lite, you can refer to this blog

Zelda Nintendo Switch Lite

We FUNLAB also have a number of products with designs based on the Legend of Zelda series for you to enhance your gaming experience more, including Zelda Firefly ProZelda Luminous Joypad, Zelda Luminpad Gripcon and many other accessories. Please check :D.

Mario & Luigi: Brothership

MUST HAVE! After 11 years, Mario & Luigi is finally resurrected! Brothers in arms, get on a seafaring ship and adventure around different islands!

The reason the Mario & Luigi series is so sought after by gamers is because it's a very creative game series: it incorporates elements of action and real-time maneuvering, and you can control both Mario and Luigi at the same time, rather than only one character at a time like many RPGs.

This game will be released on November 7, 2024

Mario & Luigi: Brothership

Same as Zelda series, We also have the Firefly Pro and Luminous Joypad for Mario :)

Super Mario Party Jamboree

20 people, what a mess it must be! The latest entry in the Mario Party series has new boards and more minigames than ever before, revel in over 110 minigames, 7 boards, and an online mode for 20 players!

Mario Party series is a very fun party game series that always offers a very large number of interesting subgames for players to compete in. I'm sure those of you who have played Super Mario Party and Mario Party Superstars on Nintendo Switch have felt the simple pleasures that this series has to offer!

This game will be released on October 17, 2024

Super Mario Party Jamboree

Metroid Prime 4: Beyond

Metroid Prime 4: Beyond, which has been announced since E3 2017, can now be considered almost complete! The fact that it was pushed back and redone because it wasn't up to par before is a testament to Nintendo's craftsmanship! According to a job posting from developer Retro Studios, they will provide "emotional" and "interesting and innovative scenes that elevate the narrative" for us!

Metroid Prime is a 3D "first-person adventure" (as Nintendo insists on calling it) game series that combines platform with non-linear exploration. If you've played Metroid Prime Remastered on the Nintendo Switch, you'll be able to feel the quality that has always characterized the series!

This game will be released in 2025
