Coming into E3 this year, Nintendo found itself in a position it hasn’t enjoyed in a number of years. The debut of their latest console back in March, the Nintendo Switch, has propelled the company forward and put it back on track after the relative disaster that was the WiiU.
Thanks to strong sales of the console and first party games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, most fans were likely wondering what else Nintendo had in store. With a couple more big name games left on the schedule, many questions were left unanswered coming into E3: When would Super Mario Odyssey release? What other games were coming in 2017? Is Metroid finally coming back?
Thankfully, Nintendo had answers and gave fans what they wanted to see. Here are my thoughts.
