With how crazy things were last year, there was no E3 in 2020. Nintendo itself didn’t even hold a traditional Nintendo Direct the entire year. Thankfully, we’re slowly starting to return to some semblance of normalcy. E3 was back over the past week in a digital-only format, and that came along with a brand new Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo itself had a few different announcements during the show. Metroid Dread, Mario Party Superstars, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, and WarioWare: Get It Together! are all coming to Switch over the next few months. We were also treated to a brand new look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Smash Bros. Ultimate revealed its latest fighter, adding Kazuya from Tekken. On the third-party front, we saw titles like Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water for Switch, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, Life is Strange, Danganronpa Decadence, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. Shin Megami Tensei V also finally showed off proper gameplay and confirmed a November launch. You can catch up on all of the news in the recap announcement here.

Now that the Nintendo Direct is over and a few days have gone by, how are you feeling about the presentation? What’s your standout game of the show? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
