Nintendo is probably the true winner of the three major companies present at E3 this year. After a decade of troubles and disappointments, Nintendo is finally listening to its players. If you missed the streaming, here are the best games that the company announced:
Metroid Prime 4
Good news Switch owners! Well, we knew it would eventually come. After a decade of waiting, Nintendo has finally announced a fourth Metroid Prime game. The bad news is, there is no other information as of now (not even gameplay or screenshots). Let’s hope that it will not suck like Other M and Federation Forces.
New Pokemon game from Game Freak
If you were disappointed at the recent Nintendo Direct last week, Gamefreak announced that they are working on a new Pokemon game RPG. So there will be two Pokemon titles coming on Switch (the other one is Pokken Tournament DX).
New Yoshi Game
This title has more detailed information. We got our first look at the adorable dinosaur and what will be his first game on the Switch. The game seems to be a successor to Yoshi’s Woolly World. The setting of the action game is in a world built out of cardboard.
The gameplay is adorably cute, and players can flip over the 2D levels to the other side. The game offers cooperative gameplay, which should be fun using the Joy-Con controller. The game is scheduled to hit next year.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be out on the Switch this holiday
Okay, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was the only JRPG to get any play on this year E3. We all know that this game was in the works for some time now. But when they announced it this morning, it still gave me the chills.
The game, a follow-up to the original Wii role-playing game, will feature a new group of heroes as they journey to the land of Elysium. the game is being developed by Monolith Soft and published by Nintendo for the Switch.
ROCKET LEAGUE is getting a Switch version
Rocket League is making its way to the Nintendo Switch this holiday season, with some Nintendo-themed items and cars exclusive to the Switch edition. Interestingly, Rocket League will offer cross-network play against other platforms. The game will include all of the features and modes available on other platforms.
Super Mario Odyssey
Nintendo’s closing show was an odd demo of Super Mario Odyssey. The gameplay involves Mario throwing his companion (a hat), Cappy, onto enemies and controls them. Super Mario Odyssey is a part of the main Super Mario series. The game returns to the primarily open-ended, exploration-based gameplay previously featured in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. It will be out on October 27th.
