E3 Highlights: Nintendo

Nintendo came out with some crackers this year! We're quite a fan of Nintendo's ambition since the release of the Switch, here at Druid Gaming. Obviously they had Zelda which was almost undoubtedly the game of 2017, but at E3 (and in the run up) they showed some great titles are about the be released.


We already knew about this prior to E3 but we can't leave it out of this article. Pokemon has been a huge influence on most people's gaming history and this is the new generation. It follows Pokemon Go's huge success and looks to make an even greater impact on the gaming world.

Super Mario Party

A classic title within the Mario World comes back with fresh ideas and smart looking animation. Maintaining the 'party' focus was clearly the goal here as Nintendo have utilised the way consoles can merge, and controllers can be used numerous people. We're sure more will be released regarding in-game content and challenges, but the trailer gives us a cool insight into the new Super Mario Party.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

In Spring 2019 an awesome old series will rekindle its fire with this game. It's a turn based strategy fighting game and the graphics and style look really slick and enticing. The game as a whole captures a very enchanting, magical animation style which mixes anime with a kind of Suikoden feel. Sweet!

The Battle Royale game that's taking the world by stotm is coming to Nintendo Switch. Personally we fell that the mobile version was a little way off capturing the magic of Epic's groundbreaking game, but with the mobility and versatility of the Switch will make this the perfect Fortnite experience when you are travelling

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Holy hell, this is going to be awesome. Every character that has every appeared in a Smash Bros game will all appear in Ultimate. One of the cool additions is that of a compatible Gamecube controller (as most veterans of the game prefer this), but the game itself looks so dope! Check it out.
