This year, like most years, Nintendo’s E3 presentation had a lot of hype to live up to. If you want to watch the 38 minute presentation yourself, you can find it here.
Nintendo had a lot to announce, but some of the highlights included the first 2D Metroid game in 19 years, Metroid Dread, scheduled to release on October 8th along with a new Warioware title, Warioware: Get It Together planned for release on September 10th. Kazuya, a character from Tekken, was also announced as the next DLC Fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
In honor of the series’ 35th anniversary, Nintendo had several announcements regarding The Legend of Zelda, from an update to the upcoming remaster of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, to another Game & Watch System featuring the original three Legend of Zelda games. Also, they finally revealed some new information on the highly anticipated Breath of the Wild sequel. A short video showed off some new gameplay footage, showing a Hyrule filled with floating islands, much like Skyward Sword. They announced that they are aiming for a release date sometime next year.
