Why I'm disappointed by last night's Nintendo Direct Mini

Last week, Nintendo got everyone's hopes up with rumours about a June Nintendo Direct. We were hoping that we would finally get to see and hear more about the next Zelda, Pokemon or Bayonetta games during the presentation. And while the rumour of a mini Direct event ended up being true, I have to admit I'm a little disappointed with the announcements.

Last night, the gaming giant held its Nintendo Direct Mini: Partners Showcase event (you can catch up on it below), and it announced a load of upcoming games. The likes of Persona 5 Royal, Super Bomberman 2 and even Pac-Man made the list. We couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed by the lack of news on some of the more anticipated games (still nothing on Zelda 2), but there are some interesting-looking games in the lineup that was revealed (if you attended the event and you're now looking for a Switch console to play the games on, make sure you see our roundup of the best Nintendo Switch Deals).
