2021’s E3 Nintendo presentation had something for almost everyone. While there were a fair amount of things I personally was looking forward to, there were admittedly some personal disappointments for me. I am going to list what I feel are the biggest, with a mention at the bottom of all games coming to the Nintendo Switch console.
KAZUYA ENTERS THE FIGHT!
Tekken fans rejoice! Super Smash Bros. has some more solid representation from Playstation, and Bandai/Namco. Available for download June 28th, 2021, everyone better prepare. The Youtube chat on the Live E3 coverage had a lot to say about this and many were hoping for “Waluigi” to be one of the characters. However, Tekken’s Kazuya is a solid character choice, and many were excited to have a DLC character that wasn’t a sword fighter.
LIFE IS STRANGE REMASTERED COLLECTION & LIFE IS STRANGE TRUE COLORS
Fans of this franchise should be excited, as “Life is Strange: True Colors” is set to release on September 10th, 2021 with “Life is Strange: Remastered Collection” set to release at an unknown date later in 2021.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
E3 announced the largely anticipated “Guardians of the Galaxy” game is coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and Playstation consoles for October 26, 2021
NEW MARIO GAMES
For all of you Mario Fans, E3 gave us something to look forward to. “Mario + Rabids: Sparks Of Hope” coming in 2022. If you don’t want to wait that long, coming October 29th, 2021 is “Mario Party: Superstars”, and even soon is “Mario Golf: Super Rush” on June 25th, 2021.
METROID 5: “METROID: DREAD”
For the first time in 25 years, a 2D side-scrolling Metroid game with new graphics, new enemies, new story, but the same classic Metroid style. Coming on October 8th, 2021 is “Metroid: Dread”. This was a huge announcement for Metroid fans at E3.
DANGANRONPA: DECADENCE COLLECTION
For you anime fans comes the Danganronpa series to the Nintendo Switch. The collection includes “Danganronpa:Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition”, “Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition”, “Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Anniversary Edition”, and “Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp”. The collection will only be available as a physical copy, but the individual games will be available on the Nintendo eShop.
NEW ZELDA NEWS….KINDA
Many fans of Zelda have been upset that there was not more mentioned about this beloved franchise since the is the 35th Anniversary of the franchise. What we were presented with at E3 was another look at the already mentioned “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD”, another look at the already mentioned Zelda Themed “Game and Watch”, a new DLC for “Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity”, and a new trailer for “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2” which can be seen below, and won’t be released until sometime in 2022.
Many games were mentioned beyond the major titles above. Click on the images below to be taken to Nintendo’s site to learn more.
