'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' lands December 7th 2018

Nintendo's E3 showcase focused heavily on the return of one of its hit series: Super Smash Bros Ultimate has landed. The main takeaway is that all fighters that have ever appeared in the series are now back. That includes the return of outsiders like Solid Snake (ten years since he last appeared in Smash Bros.) and, well, over 60 characters total. Just think of the (completely compatible) Amiibo collection. Nintendo took a deep dive on the roster, outlining how each character has gradually evolved for Ultimate.

'Super Mario Party' is ready to ruin your friendships October 5th

Nintendo is reviving Mario Party. Super Mario Party will be released this October 5th and from the looks of it, the game will make use of special Switch features we haven't seen before. One section of the video showed two Switch screens laying face up on a table. From a top-down perspective, the screens resembled a board game, with players entering one familiar green warp pipe on one screen, and popping up on the other screen via said warp pipe. Apparently you can align the screens differently to create different paths.

If you're looking for a healthy serving of culinary fun on Nintendo Switch, you'll soon have your chance.

'Fire Emblem: Three Houses' brings the strategy RPG to Switch

Fire Emblem's long-awaited arrival on Nintendo Switch is edging closer. During its E3 press conference, the house of Mario finally unveiled Three Houses, a game built from the ground up for its portable-console hybrid. As you might expect, the experience is a graphical upgrade over Fire Emblem Awakening, Fates (Birthright and Conquest) and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, which all came out on the Nintendo 3DS. A brief trailer showed a top-down overview for moving troops, followed by some cinematic close-ups for deadly attacks and special abilities. There was also a bevy of anime cut scenes hinting at the larger story that will weave each mission together. The game has been delayed, though, from later this year to spring 2019.

We already knew that the Switch's Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go Evee! would land alongside the Poké Ball Plus, but Nintendo is now trying to sweeten the deal. Each optional accessory will land with the legendary pokémon Mew inside. Overpowered from the start? Well, that would depend on the stats, but a psychic Pokémon from the outset sounds great. The game (and peripheral) both land on November 16th.

'Sable' is the best the apocalypse has looked all E3

Every E3, new games pop up that aspire for a unique art style to distinguish them from the sea of other titles clamoring for attention. There are a lot of pretty games this year, but nothing has looked like Sable. The indie title from Shedworks is a "coming-of-age adventure and exploration game," according to a tweet by publisher Raw Fury, but it's the distinctive thin-lineart-and-pastel colors that will stay with you from its E3 trailer. That and the cheerful, indie pop background track by the band Japanese Breakfast, who does the whole soundtrack.
