E3 2017 officially opened its doors to fans on Tuesday, and it kicked off the day with Nintendo Spotlight. There was a decent game list to go through, including updates to Zelda: Breath of the Wild and announcements of new Pokémon and Metroid titles coming to the hybrid console soon.
Nintendo’s game showcase ranged from RPGs like Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and hack-and-slash titles like Fire Emblem Warriors to new takes on platformers like Yoshi, Kirby, and Super Mario Odyssey.
The Japanese giant was the last of the big three to take the stage at this year’s edition of the annual conference. Sony had a great closing night on Monday, preceded by Microsoft on Sunday with the reveal of the Xbox One X.
Other epic adventures coming to the Switch include Skyrim and two new expansions to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The first one, called The Master Trials, launches this June 30, while The Champion’s Ballad will arrive this Holiday season for those with an Expansion Pass.
The video game giant also announced new Amiibo figures for Daruk, Mipha, Revali, and Urbosa from Zelda to complete the DLC. Samus Aran and Metroid Amiibo will come out for the 3DS title, as well as Chrom and Tiki figures ahead of Fire Emblem’s release. Mario, Peach, and Bowser will show up too.
Game studios also participated in E3 with showcases of their own, and some of their third-party titles are also coming to the Switch. Here is a closer look at all the games Nintendo talked about this Tuesday.
