When Nintendo announced it would be hosting a surprise Nintendo Direct stream in February, it promised to focus on Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Switch -- but the tactical fantasy franchise was easily overshadowed by other announcements. By the time the stream ended, Nintendo Switch owners knew to expect a new Super Mario Maker game, a remake of a classic Legend of Zelda title, as well as ports of Dragon Quest XI, Assassin's Creed 3 and so much more.

Want to catch up? No worries -- we collected trailers for all of the presentation's major announcements and included them below. If you want the whole experience, however, you'll want to watch the playback of the full presentation right here:

That video has a few extra announcements, including footage of the aforementioned Assassin's Creed port, Hellblade Senua's Sacrafice, a new clip of Yoshi's Crafted World, and release dates for upcoming ports like Final Fantasy 7. 

Just want to watch the trailers for the heavy hitters? We've got you covered.

There was a lot Nintendo didn't show, too. We know the company is working on a new mainline Pokemon game, Animal Crossing for Switch and Luigi's Mansion 3, but none of those showed up in the company's digital presentation. Neither did any definitive gameplay footage of upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate downloadable character Joker (from Persona 5).

Fans hoping for information on Metroid Prime 4 are out of luck too, as that game recently restarted development.
