Nintendo had a strong presentation at E3 this year, keeping things simple and moving away from some of the excessive showpieces that was found at some of the other press events.  Here's our roundup of how things went down, and some of the things we're looking forward to most from the announcements made.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

We finally got some more information on Super Smash Bros., and creator Mashiro Sakurai gave us plenty of details on what to expected from the new title, including more content over the Wii U version, with almost every character in the franchises' history, including Solid Snake, Ice Climbers and Pichu. Stages from previous games are making a comeback, including Sonic's Green Hill Zone, Spirit Train and Princess Peaches' Castle, as well as brand new stages such as one from Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

 

The game will support the GameCube controller, and all previous Smash Bros Amiibos are also compatible. A hint was also made that online battles may also be coming to the game in the future. The game releases on 7th December 2018.

Fortnite

It was already known, or well heavily rumored, that Fortnite was coming to Switch, but the official announcement has now been made, with the hugely popular Battle Royale game coming to the console in it's entirety, and still being Free To Play. And the best bit? It's available right now to download and play!

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

After a few years of waiting, more information came out about this new Fire Emblem title, with a new, full length trailer, with confirmation of the return of the traditional top-down strategy gameplay, and a pretty nice animation style. The game is currently slated for Spring 2019.

Super Mario Party

Super Mario Party is coming to Nintendo Switch, and will be the first entry for the console. Lots of new features are coming such as mini games and characters, with additional Joy-Con enable mini-games, and the ability for four players to play simultaneously by combining Switches. The game is currently slated for October 2018.

 

Overcooked 2

The sequel to the crazy kitchen simulation game was announced, with lots of new levels like a cemetery or a hot air balloon, as well as all new cooking options including baking, BBQ and broiling. To add to the fun, you can now also throw ingredients at teammates, and there are now more ways then every to burn the kitchen to a cinder. The game will be available for both local and online co-op play, and will be out this August 7th, 2018.
