The Nintendo Switch is finally here, and what’s on everyone’s mind right now are “games, games, games!” It’s quite obvious that the Nintendo Switch didn’t have the strongest launch line-up, however, it seems many owners of the system have simply brushed that fact off, considering the fact that Breath of the Wild turned out to be such an amazing game. Despite this, with April about to kick off, the Switch will finally be seeing a rise in titles, especially with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the way, Puyo Puyo Tetris, ARMS, and more.
We know the Nintendo Switch has a ton of titles in development already, however, what we don’t know is how many of those titles are TBA, as opposed to the slew of games we’ve heard are in the works during the Live Presentation which took place in January. Well, it seems our questions will be answered at this years E3, as things are currently shaping up to be one of Nintendo biggest years at E3 yet, according to the NoA president Reggie Fils-Amie.
“E3 is always a big time for Nintendo. We look at each E3 as a unique opportunity to tell our story. And we’re gonna have a big E3 this year. We’re going to be showcasing a variety of games. We will have experiences for… consumers will be able to attend the show for the very first time. So I’m not gonna tell you all of the various games and all of our little secrets for E3, but I can tell you that E3 is going to be a major opportunity for us to showcase not only Nintendo Switch, but also content coming to Nintendo 3DS.”
Sounds exciting right? We’ve heard numerous rumors surrounding Nintendo and their apparent to-be large E3 presence this year, and hearing something similar from the President of NoA himself makes it all the more exciting. One thing I am especially thrilled to hear is that they will be showcasing a lot of content which will be arriving in the Nintendo 3DS. I’ll have to say, even with the Switch likely to officially replace the 3DS for me, sometime in the future; I’m not quite ready to let the system go yet.
No official word has been announced as of yet regarding whether or not Nintendo will go back to their Live E3 Presentation roots, or if they will continue their recent trend of holding a Direct Presentation. Last year, Nintendo was absent of both a Live Presentation and a Nintendo Direct; as they instead held a Live Treehouse Event where they primarily showcased already announced Nintendo 3DS software, as well as Breath of the Wild.
