Surprise! There’s another Nintendo Direct Mini. Similarly, it’s a look at some third party games that’ll be hitting the system. Unlike last time, it came with no warning whatsoever overnight. However, expect anything as big and as exciting as last time with the Shin Megami Tensei V  news. Here’s everything announced in the eleven minute direct. You can also watch it below.
