I love how Metroid Dread references the cancelled Metroid game of the same name.

Okay, not a fan of Tekken, so once again, a character I don't care about getting in Smash. Despite that, I liked Nintendo's E3. A new Mario Party game that I actually want, Metroid Dread (after being hinted at so long ago during the Wii era, lol) finally coming, Advance Wars...

Also not a fan of horror games, but I said I would give Fatal Frame a try if it ever came to switch....welp....lol

Great direct. I can't wait for Metroid & Fatal Frame, and Super Monkey Ball & SMTV look cool too (I just hope the series' perceived difficulty doesn't push me away).

But sadly it was just a sneakpeak and (Zelda) will be a 2022 game.

Wait, people actually expected a 2021 release?

@Joeynator3000 I'm also not a fan of Tekken, but still so cool to see Street Fighter and Tekken cross over outside of a jank 360 game.

Seriously... that was exciting and underwhelming all at once. Advance Wars Reboot is GREAT. But oh my that Zelda game and watch... WHAT a letdown. Was hoping for more games like Link's Awakening...

Solid direct, much better than I was expecting! Was more in that 40 minutes that I'm interested in than the previous 4 days combined lol. Well beyond my expectations.

WHAT A DIRECT!!!! So, so much good stuff there. I’m going to have to second @Slowdive on this one and say that was the absolute best one I’ve ever seen. Metroid Dread, Warioware, SMTV (not for me but I know how much the fans love it), Advance Wars, Monkey Ball, Mario Party, it was all soooo good! And they confirmed a bunch of already announced games are coming to Switch too!

I find it absolutely hilarious how after all of this speculation nobody is actually able to guess who the next Smash fighter is. But of course it’s Tekken! It makes too much sense!

And BOTW2. Man, it just looks amazing. It’s exactly what I wanted the sequel to be: more fantastic exploration, with new abilities and a twist on the world we all know and love. I can’t get over how good that presentation was. There was truly something for everyone, and they just blew everything we’ve seen this week out of the water.

Hollow Knight for Smash!

Ok I thought that was pretty damn good overall.

I usually consider these presentations a success if there are 2 games I REALLY want to play (and a few I'm mildly interested in).

This time I got 3 games. Metroid, Advance Wars and Zelda.

8/10. Slightly better than Xbox's show. The fact that the Zelda sequel looks amazing pushes it slightly ahead of Xbox.

Alright, that was a strong presentation by Nintendo.

Still not as good as MS's, imo.

But if anyone insisted that Nintendo "won" E3, I wouldn't argue.

I can't really add more than that. I kinda thought about a Zelda Anniversary Collection but seeing the heights BotW 2 has soared to... I don't care about that.

That was utterly fantastic!

Quickly running down the list...
Metroid Dread - DREAD. DREAD OF ALL THINGS. I thought we'd never move past fusion. I dunno how much of this ties into the original Dread plans, but my gosh it's here and it looks so good.
Mario Party - This could be the best Mario Party in ages, and it's finally fully online. Hopefully they don't manage to screw it up but it looks good.
Warioware - YES MORE FULLY VOICED WARIO. I'm excited.
Advance Wars 1+2 remake - I only played Dual Strike, so I'm super excited to try these finally. I hope these do really well.
SMT V - Looking really good tbh. Got just enough from the direct to sate me.
Super Monkey Ball - I've always wanted to try the OG games (which I hear are the best) so YAY. It sounds like it's basically a remake of Deluxe, but that's not a bad thing.
GotG - ...I'm still not convinced, but awesome for anyone who's interested. Can't deny it's a bombshell that it's coming to Switch
Danganrompa - YES. I've been holding out for a Switch port for the series, so I'm playing this ASAP when it launches.
Life is Strange - The original AND True Colors? I feel spoiled, and I wanna try both. Another series I've missed due to lack of platforms to play on when it came out, so I wanna see what there is to this.
Cruis'n Blast - YES. I love Cruis'n, it was the first arcade racer I actually was good at. Didn't find out Nintendo owned it until recently, but glad we're getting the new arcade game finally.
Age of Calamity DLC - Odd placement as the final announcement, but eh. It looks like it's going to be wild, looking forward to it.
Fatal Frame - I reaaaally wanna try this after skipping it on Wii U, so I'mma give it a shot.
Two Point Campus - I wanna try this.
Kazuya - ...eh whatever. My least favorite Tekken character, but happy for whoever wanted him.

I think that covers everything! Save a few minor things and the new LoZ:SS and Mario Golf trailers

Oh yeah, Monkey Ball, Banana Blitz didn't interest me as much honestly. No idea why, can't remember which games I've played and loved, but I think it was these.

This E3 has been a pretty bad showing all around. Microsoft had some exclusives to announce, but no real good looks at any of the games of interest. Square and Capcom’s presentations were unnecessary. Nintendo’s broadcast was pretty much a recap of everyone else’s things. That said, they did better in that they at least had Metroid Dread to show off with actual gameplay so you could tell what the game was about and how it plays.

BotW2, while great to see more on it, felt like random unreleased clips strung out together. I couldn’t tell what was going on, or why I should care besides the fact that it’s a new Zelda. This goes back to my main criticism with the other big third party games.

Big AAA companies need to start showing off segments of gameplay in their trailers, not random clips of action animations or cutscenes.

Fatal Frame and Mario Party seem interesting enough as well, and I know Wario aware has a fan base that is probably excited to finally get a new game.

While I think the direct was a little lumpy, there was something for everyone I think. I had my one super-hype surprise (Advance Wars), an awesome surprise (Metroid Dread), BotW 2 footage that actually excites me and makes me want to start up the original game again, and a bunch of solid-looking releases for later this year (Mario Party, Wario Ware, SMT V).

@Joeynator3000 It's a collection of 1+2+Deluxe... aka a remake of Deluxe since that included 1+2's levels lol.

Fantastic presentation. A barrage of consistent highs, although no single shocking reveal (maybe Zelda, your mileage may vary).

Surprised at the lack of Bayonetta 3, and I wonder what's going on with that Donkey Kong game everyone is so sure exists. Also kinda disappointing that they're still not announcing new consoles for NSO. Also Kazuma from Tekken was kinda surprising in a kinda mediocre way. I enjoy Tekken and it's great it's getting some representation...but this feels longer overdue (as in...he wouldn't have felt out of place 2 games ago) and another martial artist isn't particularly exciting.

That said, there was a ton to love here. Off the top of my head: Metroid, Super Monkey Ball, Rabbids, DBZ, Danganronpa, SMTV, Mario Party, Wario Ware, Fatal Frame, Advance Wars...

Also none of the common complaints of Nintendo always relying on the same IP, always focusing on JRPGs and/or overrelying on Wii U games seem justified here, which is nice.

A definite strong showing from Nintendo, and my favourite showing of the expo.

7/10 - A solid Direct with plenty of good announcements. Regarding new announcements (as in not previously announced for Switch), most excited for Metroid Dread, Advance Wars 1+2 remake and Mario Party Superstars.

It's also very exciting also that even at E3 Nintendo is willing to announce Wii U ports, while Fatal Frame isn't my type of game it's fantastic that the game gets a 2nd chance. The Wii U release was very rough in the sense that Europe only got physical via a special edition and NA was digital only.

9/10, best E3 presentation of this year. Not the best Nintendo Direct or anything, but so much highs and surprises that nobody expected, and there was truly something for everyone.
