Last night’s Nintendo Direct saw a plethora of new games announced and what a great Nintendo Direct it was!. Along with dates for the final fighter for Super Smash Bros. dated 5th October. Nintendo have also revealed that they will be adding N64 and Mega Drive titles to the somewhat stagnated retro lineup associated with your Nintendo Online subscription.
