Nintendo Direct Mini for October 2020

Nintendo continues to deliver an exciting pattern of stealth dropping Direct Mini Partner Showcases and letting fans discover them on their own. Today, Nintendo delivered a new video with tons of updates on existing games!

To start the Partner Showcase, we got a new look at Bravely Default II. Square Enix confirmed that the game will launch on February 26, 2020, on the Switch and the developers collected feedback to make the game better. Developers have included three difficulty settings, turn orders displayed for characters, skip battle animations, more information in battle, monster speed adjusted, bonuses for defeating stronger opponents, UI changes, and run by default

Next up, we got a look at Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town! A new cast of marriage candidates, a town that grows and thrives along with your farm, and a request system highlight the new features, all while retaining the core elements of the Story of Seasons series. Finding Earth Sprites while exploring your farmland may lead you to mysterious, fantastical lands such as gardens where the seasons never change, an island in the sky, or even the inside of a volcano!
