Nintendo Switch: Every E3 2017 game trailer

Nintendo Switch: Every E3 2017 game trailer

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.

In short: it's an exciting time for Switch owners, because Nintendo is about to bring some first-party heavy hitters to the console.

ARMS review: Nintendo succeeds with its surprisingly fun fighting twist

ARMS review: Nintendo succeeds with its surprisingly fun fighting twist

Super Nintendo World’s main attraction will be Mario Kart

It’s cool to be Nintendo again, in no small part thanks to the success of the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps it would have been a different story if the Switch became an embarrassment instead. Perhaps Nintendo would have shelved its plans for theme parks then. But since that gloomy scenario didn’t come to pass, it’s full steam ahead for the first Super Nintendo World. And, unsurprisingly, it will center around the company’s most iconic character and his crazy driving antics in Mario Kart.

In short, ARMS has shown that it's more than just a tech demo for the Switch's Joy-Con controllers.

Pokemon Gold and Silver are coming to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

You'd think that announcing Pokken Tournament DX and Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon would be more than enough for an eight minute Nintendo Direct broadcast, but you'd be wrong.
