With the Switch truly in its stride, we had high hopes for the Nintendo’s showing at E3 2019. Here’s the complete list of every title announced during this year’s E3 Nintendo Direct.
Among the treats on show were CD Projekt Red’s acclaimed RPG, The Witcher III, the return of Travis Touchdown in No More Heroes III, and a brand new Contra game from Konami. There was also new gameplay footage from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
It was also confirmed that a full sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now in development.
Here’s the full list of every game and release date confirmed during today’s Nintendo Direct. Watch the stream below and check back later today for our opinions on Nintendo’s big E3 announcements.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
