Nintendo Direct (April): various tidbits from the presentation

In this post, you will find various tidbits from today’s Nintendo Direct presentation that we thought didn’t really warrant their own post, generally because nothing really new was shown, revealed and/or announced, or because the news is too minor.

First, here’s the recordings of the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch Headlines segments:

  • Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers
  • Sonic Forces  :Sonic Mania
  • Disgaea 5 Complete
  • Nintendo Switch stand-alone Dock
  • Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
  • Bye-Bye BoxBoy!

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was showcased during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, but nothing really new was shown. We did get a “new” key artwork, though:
