It’s officially the first day of E3, folks, and just as the conference doors opened, Nintendo showed off its new gear and my lord, there’s plenty to get excited about.
There was an actual fuckton of stuff, so I put the most exciting stuff below along with the entire Nintendo Direct video.
Daemon X Machina
Well, we’re off to a heavy start, aren’t we? I really wasn’t ready for robot fights and industrial metal, but here we are.
There’s not a heap of detail other than big battling robots across many landscapes, but it looks pretty cool. It’ll be out sometime in 2019.
Super Mario Party
Oh HELL yes, Mario Party is the shit. By the looks of it, this has all of your standard mini game business, but you can even connect two Switch’s together and play across them.
If you’ve been waiting for a new party game, this is the one, mates. Suss it out below.
We all knew this was coming, right? Not only did details leak last week, but the game’s already on every other platform, so it was only a matter of time. Fuck, you’ll be playing it on your fridge pretty soon I reckon.
It’s available right now for free. Mad.
It’s extreme cooking, bitch! The first Overcooked was fun as hell and as far is the new one goes, it looks to be just as wild. It’ll be released on August 7 2018.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
We finally have some gameplay footage and probably more details than we were expecting for the new Super Smash Bros. game. As far as the series goes, it’s a familiar scene, although 8-player battles are back and characters are customisable.
Speaking of which, Nintendo also showed off every character available in the game and fuck me rigid, there’s so many. Even Dr. Mario and like 3 different versions of Link are playable.
There’s some new stages, too, like the Great Plateau Tower from Breath of the Wild. The game will be out on December 7 and it’s gonna rule, folks. Check it out below.
And that’s pretty well it for Nintendo. I was kinda expecting a little more on the other Pokémon game the company is working on, but I guess not. Check out the entire presentation below for everything announced.Image: Nintendo
