E3 2017: Super Mario Odyssey Gets Release Date and New Trailer

Adjust Comment Print

Last night, when I concluded my assessment of Sony's E3 showing, I ended by saying that they had had far and away the best show, and that I didn't see how Nintendo could possibly top it.

Champions take their place in the spotlight with 11 new amiibo announced during the Nintendo E3 2017 conference, including characters from the Metroid, Zelda, Fire Emblem and Mario series.

Also arriving on the Nintendo Switch in time for the holidays is multiplayer sensation Rocket League. There's no release estimate for this one, all we know is that it's "now in development".

We'll be back later this week with our impressions of the games, and thoughts on all the big announcements.

After all Nintendo is making a new Metroid game.

Finally, a Rabbids game we can get excited about!

Another rumor confirmation came in the form of the Metroid Prime 4 reveal.

All in all, the game just looks a lot more complex and well thought-out over other titles similar to this.

All of the gameplay elements look to be a fitting progression for all of the familiar core mechanics first introduced to players in Yoshi's World, coupled with the new game's unique aesthetic style and co-op feature.

Nintendo has landed an early knockdown blow on its E3 rivals after a new game showcase that confirmed Rocket League, Fifa 18 and an original Pokemon game were all coming to its Switch console.

Well Nintendo plans to fulfil Switch owners wishes with some strong upcoming titles. All we got was the teaser above so no gameplay or release dates just yet.

Yoshi's been going from strength to adorable strength in recent years, and that looks like that'll continue when the little green "un stars in his own brand-new platformer next year".

The party started with Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

For everyone super excited for a major Pokémon RPG release for the Switch, there's good news - and bad news.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting two new content packs, due out this holiday season. The trailer shown off during Nintendo's E3 keynote also started with Mario fighting a realistically rendered dinosaur, a freaky situation for anyone familiar with the Mario series.
