Nintendo made a couple of announcements at E3 2017 including a release date for Super Mario Odyssey, a new Metroid game, a new Yoshi game and more.
Bethesda made a few announcements at their E3 2017 showcase. This year’s showcase may not have been as exciting as the last two but it was still enjoyable.
In case you missed it, here’s the on-demand version of the showcase (it’s only about 40 mins long, so skip to the 3-hour mark):
Nintendo has been around for a long time (over 127 years old) but it wasn’t until the early ‘80s, when they started to get into video games, specifically consoles.
Since then, we’ve had the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), then the Super NES, the Nintendo 64, the GameCube, the Wii, the Wii U and now we have the Nintendo Switch.
Each of Nintendo’s console offers something unique and with the Switch, Nintendo is blending the lines between home and portable console. Nintendo is in a league of their own, they’re not necessarily concerned with amazing graphics, they’re more focused on how people play games and making sure people are having fun using their systems.
In my time using the Nintendo Switch, I enjoyed using it with a few minor annoyances, which I’ll get back to.
Nintendo has announced details for the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trails, which is the first DLC pack for the game.
Most games that are released these days have downloadable content that give players more content for their favourite (or soon-to-be) games. And it looks like Nintendo is joining this trend.
Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be getting DLC in the form of an Expansion Pass.
Nintendo has released more details about their upcoming Switch console, including price, features and availability. The Nintendo Switch will be available worldwide on March 3rd, 2017 and will retail for $399 CAD ($299 USD/ 29,980 Japanese Yen and price will vary by retail and country in Europe).
Nintendo has officially their next home console, the Nintendo Switch. The new console can be played on its own as a standalone Wii-U pad like device/controller, as a traditional console hooked up to your TV via a docking station or you can play on it using its own screen and a wireless controller.
