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.
