The last of the major E3 keynotes took place today and it was a doozy. The Nintendo presentation was filled with announcements of quick flares – although not all of them were good. The long-awaited Animal crossing on the Switch is delayed, but there are plenty of other things to look forward to, including new fighters Smash Bros., a Link & # 39; s Awakening release date and a whole series of ports. View all the news you may have missed here.
Breath of the Wild will be continued
The most shocking announcement was last saved: Nintendo teased that a "full" sequel is being made for the venerable Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We don't know anything else about the game, but it seems to have a much darker tone based on the short excerpt that appears.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets a few new fighters
The newest fighters to join Smash Ultimate are the hero of Dragon quest and fan favorites Banjo-Kazooie, who help to form an increasingly eccentric cast. DQ & # 39; s hero is coming this summer and has the ability to change shape, while Banjo will be out in the fall.
Luigi's Mansion 3 looking awesome
Luigi's Mansion perhaps not the largest Nintendo franchise, but the latest entry seems to be able to help catapult the series to new heights. It's a charming mix of horror and comedy, with more physical gameplay that lets you beat ghosts. Moreover, there is co-op play where one person takes on the role of the disturbing Gooigi. Luigi's Mansion 3 will be introduced on the Switch later this year.
Dark Crystal meets Final Fantasy Tactics
If you always want Final Fantasy Tactics had a more Jim Henson atmosphere, this might be the game for you. The Switch gets a new turn-based strategy game based on Netflix & # 39; s prequel The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistanceand it looks like a surprisingly good fit.
Link & # 39; s Awakening has a release date
The remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link & # 39; s Awakening looks just as charming as ever, and now we know when it will be available to play: the Switch game will be launched on September 20. In addition to cute images, the game also adds a new mode in which you can design challenging dungeons to play.
Geralt becomes portable
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best role-playing games of the past decade, and soon you can play while on the move. The final edition of the game is coming to the Switch, although there is no release date yet. Expected to play it later in 2019.
More Resident Evil on the switch
You can already play a lot Resident Evil games on the Switch, and soon two of the less appreciated games in the survival horror series will also be available. Both Resident Evil 5 and 6 will launch this fall.
No More Heroes 3 announced
After a somewhat disappointing spin-off, Goichi Suda is back with a good follow-up No More Heroes 2. The game looks as ridiculous as you would imagine, and this time it features flying mechs. You can play Travis Touchdown again in 2020.
Daemon X Machina has a release date and it still looks wild
We first caught a glimpse of the mech hunter Daemon X Machina last year at E3, and it looked absolutely exciting. Fortunately, this has not changed based on the new trailer. And now it has a release date: September 13.
Panzer Dragoon turns on the switch
The classic Sega Saturn shooter Panzer Dragoon is recreated and it comes to the Switch. The new version contains improved graphic images, but appears to be identical to the original. It is launching this winter.
Pokémon Sword and Shield will have (limited) Pokéball Plus support
If you have a Pokéball Plus, there is good news: you can use it at the upcoming one Pokémon Sword and Shield on the switch. The Pokéball will not serve as a controller like in Let's go, but you can use it to take bugs out of the game and bring them into the real world, which in turn will give you various bonuses.
Cadence from Hyrule will start soon
One of GDC's biggest surprises in March was Cadence of Hyrule, an indie-developed, musical spin-off from the Zelda series. It launches very soon and hits the Switch on June 13.
Animal crossing is delayed, but it looks good
First, the bad news: after being originally scheduled for a 2019 release, Animal crossing on the Switch has been reduced to 2 March 2020. The good news? The game, dubbed New horizons, looks great, with a new setup that entrusts players with building a community on a deserted island.
Alien: Insulation and Fearless get Switch ports
A number of very different titles are imported to Switch. First, there is the terrifying one Alien: Insulation, which allows players to escape from a surprisingly clever Xenomorph. A free monster hunting game is added Fearless, who recently made the leap from PC to console. Both games will be released later this year.
