Nintendo E3 2017 Round-up

Instead of taking the stage live at E3, Nintendo opted to take a different approach than the other major companies in attendance. They broadcast a short pre-recorded video to show off their new titles.

We’re not complaining however, because the presentation contained a few gems. In a broadcast dominated by Nintendo Switch, there’s more than a few titles we’ll be pre-ordering. Read on to find out more!

Super Mario Odyssey

Release date: October 27th 2017

New Evolution of Mario Sandbox-Style Gameplay

Mario embarks on a new journey through unknown worlds, running and jumping through huge 3D worlds in the first sandbox-style Mario game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. Set sail between expansive worlds aboard an airship, and perform all-new actions, such as throwing Mario’s cap.

Super Mario Odyssey looks both brave and innovative and Nintendo weren’t shy about showing it off today. It won’t be available on the show floor unfortunately, but the gameplay trailer looked fantastic. After the event we were also able to watch the Nintendo team demo it live on their Treehouse show. The gameplay looked quite polished and we’re also excited by the variety of worlds available to explore!

Metroid Prime 4

Release date: TBC

There’s not much to say other than Samus will be making her way to Nintendo Switch. Can we say that again though? Samus on Nintendo Switch! It feels good to be able to say that Metroid will be returning!

Nintendo only showed us a logo but we’re stoked for this game. Definite pre-order.

Metroid: Samus Returns will also come to 3DS in September.

Rocket League

Release date: Holiday 2017

Rocket League is making it’s way to Nintendo Switch! It feels like the Switch will be the perfect platform for the game. It’s already massively popular on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and that’s set to continue with Switch. Crossplay means you can battle against your friends on other platforms, we can’t wait!

Yoshi

Release date: 2018

We’re delighted Yoshi is making his way to Nintendo Switch in a standalone title. It looks a lot like Paper Mario, so colour us interested! We can’t wait for a little more of the game to be revealed but what we’ve already seen has left us impressed!

Kirby

Release date: 2018

Our favourite Nintendo cutie is also coming to the Switch next year! With the release of the NES Classic Mini last year we fell back in love with this game and can’t wait to take it on the go with Nintendo Switch! Details are scarce, but have a look at the video below and see if it rekindles any fond memories for you!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Release date: Holiday 2017

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is coming this holiday season. We were impressed by the scale of the game in the gameplay trailer below. We can’t wait to see what the finished game actually looks like but the signs so far are positive. We’re sure that gamers will be glad to get one of the best JRPG’s from the last generation into their hands!

Fire Emblem Warriors

Release date: Holiday 2017

Heroes from across the Fire Emblem universe collide!

Clash with legions of soldiers and fierce monsters as Marth, Xander, Corrin, and other Fire Emblem heroes unleashing over-the-top-powerful Dynasty Warriors-style moves. Take direct control of known and original Fire Emblem characters, issue them strategic commands in the midst of battle, pair up heroes to unleash stunning attacks, and more. Unlock new playable heroes, each with their own unique moves, special attacks, weapon types, and voiced dialogue in this large-scale action game from the Hyrule Warriors team.

Pokémon

Release date: TBC

It was only last week that Pokkén Tournament DX was announced for Switch. Rumors of a full Pokémon game have been circulating but now Nintendo has confirmed that a new game is on the way. We didn’t see any gameplay in action or even a teaser, but are super hyped for it regardless!
