We knew a BOTW sequel was in development before hand and they didn't really show anything of worth.

It was fairly meh.

Spyro, Asral Chain, NMH3, Luigi Mansion 3, BotW2, Lucky Tale got my interest.

Panzer dragoon needs lots of polish. RE6 maybe if polished too and at low price. Link's Awakening.... on the fence so far.

In for Panzer Dragoon Remake despite it looking shoddy; Astral Chains continues to look fun; A big "NO" from me for 3D Contra; IDGAF about a BOTW2 after how much I hated the first one; and I'm disappointed over how once again Metroid is a no show.

I don't know how I'd rank the conference overall since this is the only one I've watched this E3.

8/10. A delightful mix of everything. Lots of games to show, decent amount of gameplay, and even a few pleasant surprises. Highlights were Dragon Quest XI, Luigi's Mansion 3, Link's Awakening remake, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, No More Heroes III and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Animal Crossing getting delayed was a bit of a downer, but the game looked nice. Astral Chain looked properly sweet. Smash Ultimate also got cool Dragon Quest XI and Banjo Kazooie crossovers. A Fire Emblem-style Dark Crystal game and somehow cramming The Witcher 3 into the Switch were pleasant surprises. The big finish with the Breath of the Wild sequel sealed the deal. Doug Bowser's E3 debut was appropriately cute. Awesome show.

That's quite a hefty character pack, unless they're all echo fighters.

Next. Still on Dragon Quest. Already shown at the Square Enix show, but still pretty cool nonetheless.

They are skins probably, III, IV, VIII, and XI's heroes all have the same moveset.

Thats why V's hero isn't playable as he would have a different moveset, despite his game being among the most popular with a movie coming.

Astral Chain (voice acting sounded bad) and the Zelda games caught my eye , but not much else. It was better than Microsoft's.

New console? The Switch is more than two years old.

Ah! I misread the post. What you say makes much more sense. My apologies, @Bread_or_Decide.

No Switch hardware revisions or new models announced

No Metroid Prime Trilogy

No WiiU ports (Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, Windwaker HD, etc)

No announcements for other sequels besides BOTW (Mario Kart 9, Pikmin 4, Paper Mario, etc)

and no Cuphead DLC

I am a little shocked at how few surprises from Nintendo there really were. The Dragon Quest Smash DLC has been predicted for months. Other than Banjo and Zelda there wasn't much. 3rd parties had some atleast- Witcher, Alien Isolation, Spyro, Lucky's Tale, Resident Evil 5 and 6. Edit: Oh and No More Heroes 3

Wish I can say there was more I liked here. Just not a fan of Luigis mansion, animal crossing, smash dlc.... a lot of time was spent here. BotW 2 reveal was cool, but seemed like an after thought, and I have a feeling that could be a 3x e3 game.

I would have liked to see a blowout on Fire Emblem which releases next month.

Contra looked rough around the edges, but fun none the less.

No metroid is a disappointment.

Overall: 5 / 10

Nintendo easily won E3. Great showing.

Astral Chain, Luigi's Mansion 3 & Links Awakening looked incredible. Strange we didn't get a release date for LM3 though. A few of the Indie games look great too.

I know most people are excited for BOTW 2 announcement, but I personally would've preferred a Mario Odyssey sequel, or atleast a different Zelda (possibly something alittle less open-worldy).

But overall, great conference.

This wasn't half bad at all ... I'm really disappointed by the lack of Metroid and Bayonetta 3 ... But I'm very happy with Banjo and The Hero on Smash, No More Heroes 3 was a nice surprise as well. And of course, BotW 2 was very intriguing (Midna's return it seems) ... Solid presentation and no doubt the best of the bunch.

Lack of metroid even the rumoured trilogy remaster is worrying. But there was enough for rpg fans to look forward to. Nothing for me though but overall a good direct.

Yeah, don't know where he got Midna from that, it was clearly a Gerudo body with Gerudo jewelry.

Banjo-Kazooie is all I needed to be happy, and we got Banjo. Now that is what you call fan-service there. Banjo-Kazooie - right up there with Ridley - have been among the most popular and demanded characters in a Smash Bros. game since the Melee days, and I can't believe the day has finally come where we have the game with both of them. I'm so happy for this. At this point I don't care what else we might get in Smash Bros. DLC, because all along my biggest care was for Banjo and I'm a happy camper.

I am starting to speculate it's possible we'll be getting quite the revival for the Banjo-Kazooie franchise in general. I wouldn't be surprised if the N64 originals will be brought over to the Switch at one point, and maybe when he drops in Smash would be the perfect time to bring them over; but, I'm also feeling like it's time to finally do Banjo-Threeie, a game I'm certain most of us fans have dreamed about ever since the N64 era. With all the new marketing and media surrounding the bear and bird, do you guys think it would be likely to have that kind of Banjo-Kazooie revival?

That's what I've deduced as well, this may be Ganondorf. I'm definitely excited about this game and can't wait to hear more. I wonder what kind of map we will be dealing with.

The corpse is Gerudo. Madsnakehhh was saying that because of the tune and the hand.

It had no Metroid Prime 4 so I couldn't care less, it and Zelda are the ONLY reasons I got a switch... And announcing that they are developing a new Zelda was the biggest no s*** moment I have ever had.

It's Ganondorf, and it's also possibly a ghost hand, Link will acquire with new abilities. Kind of like Princess Mononoke? We'll have proper dungeons make a return and will probably explore the bloodstained history of Hyrule underneath the catacombs of Hyrule Castle.

I hope we actually play as Zelda this time.

I really doubt that because of the way the characters are designed. Link is basically an androgynous blank slate, and that's because (s)he is the kid who enters the cave to see what's in it. Link personifies you and your inner child and its curiosity. That's why we could normally pick a name for Link. Whereas Zelda is royalty, well known in the world and an established character. She isn't you. She is a person born of importance, and you are a kid who stumbles into an adventure. She is the one who says things, and you are the one who just takes it all in and listens. This has changed a little over time. I feel like Link has gotten more of a personality. In BOTW, we lose the option to choose his name and he didn't start off as an unknown kid there. He started off as someone who has a history. (Plus Zelda has regained her powers and has gotten a new haircut... That could hint at something.)

So... it could happen. Maybe even due to demand. But it just seems to go against their initial design. If you were to play as Zelda, where does that leave Link? Will he become more of a developed character as well, and consequently lose its function of being you? Hey, I wouldn't count on it happening but anything is possible and it does sound interesting.

Why are you interested in playing as Zelda? Is it because of the novelty of it? Or maybe gameplay changes? At first I was interested in it because I could see Zelda come with new combat methods. Maybe more magic oriented. (Though honestly... if Link finds a wizard's armaments I suppose it could technically bring that same change in gameplay. I suppose the Wisdom / Courage part could mean that it would make more sense to have Zelda for that style of gameplay.)

It was a high quality show IMO. A bunch of games coming out this summer and early fall that I want to play. Enticing stuff for next year and beyond as well. The only disappointment was no Prime Trilogy. I'm guessing it's done and they are just sitting on it until Prime 4 is closer to release, or until they have an unexpected drought.

No More Heroes 3, Astral Chain.

Maybe Panzer Dragoon remake, Trials of Mana remake/Mana series collection, Contra collection, Daemon X Machina, Empire of Sin strategy game with the interesting John Romero/Paradox collaboration, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and (Pokemon) gameplay at Treehouse if you are interested.

Oh! We forgot the Cadence of Hyrule game that released yesterday. It looked really good on Treehouse. They didn't just create a visual overhaul but changed the game. There is a village, and there are dungeons, and they made it more forgiving and have permanent items you find like bombs and other Zelda stuff. The co-op looks really cool too. I'm going to buy that now.
