However, don't be surprised if Nintendo does decide to forego hardware altogether, as the Nintendo Switch is still doing strong. The company is looking to bulk up its offerings at E3. Nearly half their Nintendo Direct was dedicated to the iconic fighting game, which was revealed to be called Super Smash Bros. More than a true sequel, it looks like this will literally be the "ultimate" edition that brings together every character that's ever existed in the franchise, in addition to a handful of new lines like Inklings, Daisy, and even the long-awaited Ridley. A new GameCube controller was shown off during the presentation as well.
The Smash Amiibo line is about to get an ultimate refresh. Ultimate for the Switch. For example, Ryu now automatically faces his opponent, much like he did in the original Street Fighter games. After exploding in popularity on PC, the game has branched out to Xbox and PS4. You'll even notice the old man from the start of Breath of the Wild floating around on his sail cloth.
Lastly, battle royale game Fortnite will be available at 10 am Pacific Time (1:00 am, Manila time) for people to download and play. There's no Switch-specific content, though. But no: Daemon x Machina is a sleek, third-person mech fighter with a cel-shaded art style that makes those rocket salvos really pop. You actually have to hold down the B button while shielding in order to refill your ink, which gives Inkling a different feel from other characters.
If you remember, we haven't seen anything of the game since a year ago, and even then all we got was a logo. Its release is not far, as Super Mario Party releases on October 5th, 2018. Fire Emblem: Three Houses looks ludicrously lovely, but beyond confirmation of a Spring 2019 release date there's not much more to say.
Other new games introduced during the broadcast, which are coming to Switch but may also make their way to other platforms, include Overcooked 2 (sequel to the chaotic co-operative cooking challenge game) and Killer Queen Black, a new version of a modern arcade favourite that lets two teams of four players compete in real-time strategic battles.
