Nintendo brought in the big guns for their E3 press conference this year, featuring a ton of first-party exclusives. While some of them might be far off unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that hardcore fans of Nintendo still can’t be thrilled about it.
Super Mario Odyssey in particular stole the show for lots of people and left a lot of fans looking like this:
Seeing the hat mechanics in action and the fusion of 3D and classic 2D gameplay, left many fans super hyped:
Along with the gameplay footage, Nintendo also introduced wedding-themed amiibos for Mario, Peach, and Bowsers. And well….
Aside from Odyssey, the news of new Metroid games left many shocked as well. First up, there’s Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch, which was shown by just putting the title up on a 40-second teaser but that was still enough to send fans into a frenzy.
That was just the first one though. Nintendo channeled their inner DJ Khalad and dropped another one too: Metroid Samus Returns.
Basically it’s a re-imagination of Metroid II Return of Samus for the 3DS. This also triggered some jokes regarding its name:
Another trend came from the announcement of an untitled Pokemon RPG for Nintendo Switch. There’s basically nothing for it other than a simple tweet from Nintendo themselves to confirm the development:
After that, Twitter erupted….
While there will still be people on the fence about the Switch after this conference, there are many that couldn’t be more thrilled.
