Nintendo’s E3 2017 Roundup
Nintendo finished up E3 press conferences with a huge number of announcements today, both for Switch and for 3DS.
The first, and probably biggest, news is that Metroid Prime 4 has been announced for Nintendo Switch. So far, we have little information about the game, but in the meantime, Metroid 2 is being remade for the 3DS as Samus Returns, and is being released September 15.
Kirby is also getting an upcoming title on the Switch, and is being released at some point in 2018. The game supports up to 4 players, and three new Kirby games (Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, Kirby’s Blowout Blast, and another unnamed title) will be released for 3DS this year.
Nintendo has also released new information about Breath of the Wild’s upcoming DLC, slated for release this summer and this December. The Champion’s Ballad will focus on the four Champions, and will be released alongside new Champion amiibo.
As fans have been demanding, a new Pokémon RPG has also been announced for the Nintendo Switch, and is promised to be a “core RPG” game. For now, all we know is that the title may not see a release for at least a year.
Super Mario Odyssey also got new information released, including some gameplay and a release date of October 27. Continuing a weird theme that’s been going on this E3, it looks like a core mechanic of this game is going to be mind control and possession.
Next up, Nintendo announced that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be released this winter on the Switch.
Fire Emblem Warriors is also being released for the Switch, and is expected to be released this Fall, with a simultaneous release on the 3DS.
A new Yoshi game is also getting released for the Nintendo Switch. For now, it’s just called Yoshi, ad is set to be released in 2018.
In addition, the best Mario game (so far!), Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga is getting remade for the Nintendo 3DS,with a new gamemode featuring Bowser and his minions.
Finishing all this news up, Nintendo reminded everyone that Rocket League and FIFA are getting released on the Switch later this year.
With that, all of E3’s conferences and announcements are over! Who had your favorite press conference this year? Do you think Nintendo delivered?
