Here’s every major announcement from Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct:
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Steals the Show
The newest Super Smash Bros. finally got its big debut, with massive news that it will feature every fighter ever in a Super Smash Bros. game and will be released on December 7.
In addition to the Inklings, who were confirmed in the original teaser trailer, today we found out about two new fighters - Ridley and Daisy – plus the news that Smash Bros. Ultimate will support Nintendo GameCube controllers.
We also saw a lot (and I mean a lot) of new gameplay, including several changes to characters, stages, assist trophies, and more.
Fortnite Is Available Today on Switch
The biggest game in the world is now on yet another system: Nintendo Switch. Epic announced that Fortnite is coming to Nintendo Switch and – surprise! – it’s available today.
Fortnite on Switch will support multiple controller configurations on Switch as well as free online play. Other than that, it’s the same Battle Royale experience you know and love.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses Revealed
The long-awaited mainline Fire Emblem for Switch was finally revealed as Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and it’s a doozy.
A reveal trailer showed new features, including the ability to start in a top-down view and zoom in to view ground-level battles. We also saw what appeared to be free-roaming exploration and much more.
Super Mario Party Uses Switch in a New Way
A new Mario Party game was revealed, and it uses multiple Switch systems at the same time.
A new trailer showed off some crazy new multiplayer configurations, like laying two Switches on a table and having an object move from one to another, or setting up two systems back-to-back for interactive mini games.
Mini Games shown included a home run tournament, a tank game, a motion control-powered racing game, and more.
Mew Revealed for Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee
Mew is confirmed for the brand new Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, but you can only get it if you buy the Poke Ball Plus accessory.
Nintendo confirmed that Mew will be exclusive for Poke Ball Plus owners, so consider picking one up if you need a mythical Pokemon in your life in November.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Gets New DLC
Last year’s massive Switch RPG gets its biggest update yet in the form of brand new story DLC called Torna: The Golden Country.
The new content will be available in September and a trailer teased the return of Rex and Pyra as well as a battle between multiple Aegises.
Dragon Ball FighterZ Is Coming to Switch
A sizzle reel showed off many new games headed to Nintendo Switch, but the most notable was Bandai Namco’s 2D fighter, which will come to Switch some time in 2018.
We also saw quick looks at previously-announced Switch games coming in the next few months like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, and more.
Another New Octopath Traveler Demo
If you can’t wait to get your hands on Octopath Traveler, Nintendo will release another brand new demo on June 14.
The demo will be completely free and progress will carry over to the full version of Octopath Traveler when it releases on July 13.
Overcooked 2, Hollow Knight, and Killer Queen
Some new and beloved indies are also headed to Switch, including the brand new announcement of Overcooked 2, which is coming on August 7 and has wireless, local, and online co-op, as well as new maps and scenarios.
Daemon X Machina’s Colorful Mechs
Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct kicked off with a stylized cel-shaded-esque trailer for Daemon X Machina from Marvelous Entertainment.
The game will come to Switch in 2019 and had a heavy metal soundtrack that certainly left an impression.
