Nintendo Direct Mini & Google Stadia Connect

Hello there fellow gamers, sometimes I am guilty of focusing too much on the top end of town, the dominant forces in gaming – I am talking about the big three, Xbox, PlayStation and the master race, PC. As a gaming blogger, it is time for me to see what is happening with Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything that was announced at the Nintendo Direct Mini & Google Stadia Connect.

Nintendo Direct Mini

The Nintendo Direct Mini event is only 8 minutes and focused on third-party games; this means some of the more hyped for titles like Metroid Prime 4, the breath of the wild sequel, or other first-party titles were not promoted. None the less we are excited, and those eight minutes were action-packed. The Nintendo Direct Mini & Google Stadia Connect are action packed with some key highlights coming from both of the events.
