Nintendo E3 Announcements Exciting

Nintendo’s big E3 event was today, and most of it was pretty exciting news.

Mario Odyssey

Mario Odyssey looks weird but fun. Mario has some sort of magic hat that lets him possess different animals and objects. That includes a tyrannosaurus that looks amazing.

Metroid Prime 4 for the Switch!

This was a big surprise to everyone. There hasn’t been a new Metroid Prime game in ten years; it’s generally known as the Metroid Prime Trilogy. It was announced as “in development,” so no telling how long before it comes out.

Here’s the teaser:

In the mean time, there’s also a new Nintendo DS Metroid game, Samus Returns. It’s described as a re-imagining of the original Game Boy game, and it looks great. I may need to get my hands on this when it comes out in September.

Breath of the Wild DLC packs

The first DLC packs for Breath of the Wild were announced, one coming out this summer, the next for winter holiday. The DLC packs will bring new quests and dungeons that fans are very excited about. We’re still waiting to get a Switch, and I’m just watching our initial investment for Breath of the Wild creep up with every announcement.

New Yoshi Game

I loved Yoshi’s Wooly World, and the new game looks just as cute:


Lots of stuff to be excited about. I still think waiting until Christmas to get a Switch was a good plan for us, because there will be plenty of games by then.
