E3 2018: All The Nintendo Switch Games Revealed At Nintendo Direct
Created by GameSpot Staff on
Nintendo Direct caps off E3's press conferences every year, and this year the company unveiled a packed presentation full of games that are sure to get many people excited. Of course, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate took much of the attention; every single character that has ever appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game--from the original 12 characters featured in the Nintendo 64 games, all the way up to the latest DLC characters made released for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U--will be included as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
There were other big titles, like mini-game favorite Super Mario Party, the first new game in the series in three years, along with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Mega Man 11, FIFA 19, and Overcooked 2. There are a lot of ports on the way, too. Dragon Ball FighterZ, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Paladins, and Dark Souls Remastered all made it into this year's Nintendo Direct.
Then there was Fornite: Battle Royale. We knew the game was likely coming to Nintendo Switch, but Nintendo dropped a big surprise today by announcing the game was not only releasing on Switch, but that it would be available right away. While the game suffered some matchmaking issues immediately after launch, Epic says they have been ironed out and you are now able to play successfully. In our experience, it runs decently well, although it's not quite the optimal way to play. If your only concern is being able to do so from bed without pulling out your phone, though, it's just the ticket.
