During a video presentation at yesterday’s Electronic and Entertainment Expo (E3), Nintendo introduced their fans to what they can expect for the rest of 2017 and what’s new in 2018 for the Nintendo Switch. With trailers for their previously announced titles such as Skyrim and Super Mario Odyssey, the newest titles will make anyone want to buy a Switch before their release.

Yoshi

Release: 2018

The loveable green dino is back in his own game but making use of the Switch’s capability for how the levels are created. As you play, you can flip the stages to expose extras in the levels that will help you complete each task. It’s a 2D game with a 3D feel as you fight paper-mache enemies and bosses with your parade of eggs.

Rocket League

Release: Holiday 2017

The popular game is finally making its way to the Nintendo console. Rocket League is a game using remote control cars to play sports including soccer and basketball. What makes the game different for the Switch are the different DLCs to customize cars with Mario and Luigi hats, and more extras that won’t be released until later this year.

Metroid Prime 4

Release: TBD

Samus Aran is back in the classic game Metroid Prime 4. We go back to the original feel from previous games, unlike that horrible one for the 3DS that was released last year. Although little information was offered about the game, the little gameplay makes it believed to be a good addition to the series. Samus first appeared on the NES in 1986 and made history as the first female hero in a video game.

Breath Of The Wild Expansion, DLC 1

Release: 2017

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild made an impact upon release of the Switch with its big map and loads of side missions. However, if you have finished the game yet, prepare to spend more time on it with the expansion pack coming later this year. The pack includes new armor, mask, and missions.

Two other announcements for the console were made during the E3 convention including the release of new Amiibos, mini statues that can be used in the game, for BOTW and Metroid 4, and a new role-playing game (RPG) for Pokemon for 2018.

For esports, Pokken DX, Arms and Splatoon 2 will be hitting the competitive scene in the near future with the first Arms and Splatoon 2 tournaments taking place at the conference. More information surrounding the titles will be available upon release.
