Ignored By Nintendo, Brazilian Fans Film Their Own Nintendo Direct

Luke Plunkett Jul 19, 2019. 14 comments

If you want something done, you gotta do it yourself.

As USGamer reports, a group of Brazilian Nintendo fans, fed up with the way the company has withdrawn from the market (which has left them paying big import prices for games and hardware), decided to team up and record their own Nintendo Direct.

Led by the hard work of Rodrigo Coelho (who actually lives in Tokyo), the Direct showcases the work of Brazilian studios (or “developers with Brazilian backgrounds”), and puts them all in a very Nintendo Direct-style video, only with Coelho doing the presenting.

The hope is that by showing how much local fans care about Nintendo games, and how good so many Brazilian games are, they can convince the company to return to the market, from which they’ve been absent since 2015.

You can read more about Coelho’s hard work over in USGamer’s story.

The Outer Worlds mostly bucks that trend, but at least one bug proved to be incredibly frustrating: a strange glitch stating that your companions were dead when they were, in actual fact, alive. This could lock players out of completing quests. Figuring out what was causing the issue took time, but...

A Big Final Fantasy XIV Update Finally Makes Playing As Blue Mages Better A Big Final Fantasy XIV Update Finally Makes Playing As Blue Mages Better

Final Fantasy XIV’s Blue Mage class was silly but ultimately limited in what it could do. Fans wanted an entire new job class that could fit into established groups. Instead, they got a bite-sized blast of goofy magic that could only team up with other Blue Mages. It was neat but ultimately a disappointment. Thankfully, a new update is...
