There’s a new Trials of Mana game and a collection of previous titles coming soon.

The rumours were true and The Witcher 3 is coming later this year. You have to assume this leads to Geralt being in Smash Bros at some point.

Resident Evil 5 & 6 are coming to Switch.

No More Heroes III is coming next year.

Banjo-Kazooie is finally confirmed for Smash Bros and will come later this year.

A Breath of the Wild sequel is confirmed to be in development, using the same art style as the original.

Nintendo is absolutely killing it with a tonne of games coming out in the second half of this year. This was a great showing by them and deserves to go down as the best conference (or the equivalent) of E3 2019.
