Nintendo brings a blockbuster E32021

After the slow kickoff by Geoff Keighley, and lukewarm E3 presentations done by a few companies, like Gearbox, and Ubisoft, the only silver lining so far was Microsoft with their “game announcements, after game announcements” presentation in a joint conference with Bethesda. Well, it seems that trend continues with Square Enix and Capcom. Today, Nintendo held their own livestream in the form of a major Nintendo Direct, and it was a livestream full of blockbuster announcements…

It starts off with an update to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and has highs and lows until Metroid Dread was announced. A new Mario Party game was announced, a new Life is Strange game was announced, a new Super Monkey Ball game was announced, they also announced two Advanced Wars remakes coming to Nintendo Switch. They closed out the show with release dates for Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild “2.” Skyward Sword is coming out on July 16, 2021. Breath of the Wild 2 (probably working title) is penciled and aiming for a 2022 release window.
