Hopes were high for Nintendo's E3 2017 presentation, and now that we're on the other side of it, it certainly seems like Nintendo delivered.

FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch lets you kick off anytime, anywhere

At E3 2017, almost all eyes are on Microsoft's flood of juicy announcements surrounding the Xbox platform, including the Xbox One X and the new exhaustive backwards compatibility catalog.
