The first Clubhouse Games was released for the Nintendo DS in 2006, featuring 42 games. It was awarded 8/10 in GameSpot's review, with Frank Povo saying, "Some of the games included in the collection aren't the best renditions, but there are plenty of them, especially when you consider how many games you get for the purchase price. On top of that, you can play against your friends, whether they're in the same room or across town. It's like having access to your grandparents' game closet everywhere you go."

Other announcements from the Nintendo Direct Mini include a number of 2K compilations--namely Borderlands, BioShock, and XCOM--the next fighter reveal for Smash Bros, and details on the April update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
