    Welp, an anime sword fighter in Smash should take care of the free space on your "Nintendo Direct bingo card," at least.

    Tbh, I'm cool with them. Hopefully the last character is a 3rd party character, though. Still hoping for Master Chief.

    Fall Guys on Switch is definitely late to the party. Its 15 minutes in the spotlight are long gone.
