Quite surprisingly, Nintendo announced a new Direct a few hours ago. New games for the Nintendo Switch are usually revealed during these video presentations. Because the hybrid console is also celebrating incredible success in the sixth year after its release and is still supplied with numerous games software. Whenever a new Nintendo Direct is due, speculation from excited fans runs rampant. Are there any first indications of a possible Mario Kart 9? When can we expect the new Super Mario 3D adventure? Are we finally getting to know more about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom? Or is there even a sign of life from Metroid Prime 4? However, Nintendo made it clear from the start that this Direct will not contain any new games.
A Nintendo Direct without games
In the run-up to the Nintendo Direct, new pictures of the movie were leaked. Characters like Luigi and Princess Peach found their way to the public via social media. The new designs of the characters unsurprisingly fit perfectly into the style of the first trailer. In the film, Mario, Bowser & Co. look confusingly similar to the originals from the games, but appear more lively and detailed.
A Nintendo Direct without any games? Numerous fans will have asked themselves in advance why Nintendo didn’t just publish the new trailer for the Mario movie as YouTube. The Japanese consumer electronics giant provided the answer on Tuesday, November 29, at 11:00 p.m. CET, as announced. In addition to the second trailer for the Super Mario Bros. film, there were greetings from the participants.

As the creator of Mario and producer of the film, Shigeru Myamotu took the opportunity to personally greet the viewers at the new Nintendo Direct.

Anya Taylor-Joy, who voices Princess Peach, also addressed the audience and expressed her excitement at being cast in the Mario movie.
Finally, before the second trailer of The Super Mario Bros. Movie premiered, Seth Rogen, Donkey Kong’s voice actor, got a chance to speak. He claimed to have been a big Nintendo fan since childhood and presented his dog, whom he named Zelda. Then finally it was time!

Marvel blockbusters continue to rock the box office
In US cinemas, there was recently a big duel between Marvel and Disney, with a very clear winner.
The second trailer for the Mario movie shows an epic confrontation between Mario and Donkey Kong in a huge gladiator arena. A clear reference to the fight between Thor and Hulk in the corresponding Marvel blockbuster. The audience also gets a taste of Princess Peach’s voiceover, which, while very different from the games, is nonetheless extremely well done. The highlight for many fans, however, is likely to be the unveiling of a Mario Kart-style race, which is obviously of greater importance in the film. Mario Kart has never been more magnificent and beautiful. The spectacular scenes should not only fuel speculation about Mario Kart 9, but also fuel the desire for a new main game in the series.
