What’s going on gamers! E3 2017 is booming and every gamers was hyped to hear what new games are coming to their favorite console. Over the week we’ve been hearing Microsoft and Sony making announcement on what is coming in the future of their company, now it time for Nintendo to take step up and take center stage. Everyone, including myself, was wondering what will Nintendo have in store for their Nintendo Switch console.
First off, this year Nintendo announced that their Nintendo Spotlight would be a 24 minutes pre-tape presentation. It started off with a montage of people having fun play the Nintendo Switch. Then the legendary Reggie Fils-Aime appeared to welcome everyone and introduce the first game announcement, Xenoblade Chronicle 2. I’m a fan of the RPG genre, but I haven’t played the previous Xenoblade game. Based from watching this trailer, the game’s character and landscape design looked beautiful. I’m not sure about how the gameplay works, but I’m willing to give this game a try. The next game trailer was the unveiling of the next Kirby game for 2018. This looks like it could be a good 3D side-scroll game, but I need more details. Pokken Tournament DX was mentioned in the presentation as well as a announcement of a new core Pokemon RPG for the Nintendo Switch. Now I’m not to hype about this announcement, because I’m thinking it wouldn’t turn out the way I want it to be. I feel that this new Pokemon RPG on the Switch will turn out to be another Pokemon Colosseum, and I’m not digging that.Then Nintendo broke the internet by announcing the reveal of Metroid Prime 4 coming to the Switch. The next couple of games that was announced was a new Yoshi game, Fire Emblem Warriors, DLC packs for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario + Rabbis Kingdom Battle and Rocket League. The final game that Reggie Fils-Aime presented was a full long trailer for Super Mario Odyssey, which is coming to the Switch on October 27, 2017.
So overall, the Nintendo Spotlight E3 presentation was surprisingly good. My expectation for this showcase was low, I wasn’t expecting to hear all of this awesome game coming to the Switch. It good to see older IP such as Kirby, Yoshi and Metroid are making a comeback to the main Nintendo console. I’ve haven’t been playing much Nintendo games lately, but hearing these games coming out I might actually go out and pick up a Nintendo Switch (if I can find one.) So that’s all I have to said about the Nintendo E3 2017 Spotlight. Until next time, “Be Easy and Stay Epic!”
