What’s goin on y’all! It’s your mans Wav3yGawd and I am back with more gaming news! The last conference for E3 2019 was yesterday with Nintendo and yes they did have a lot to display in their E3 Direct. Even though they just had a direct for Pokemon earlier, this one was for everything else they are working on obviously. Here is all the important things you might have missed from their presentation.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Nintendo started off and ended their presentation strong with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If they are sharing more news about this game it is probably for a new character joining the fight and that is exactly what they told us! Coming this summer, The Hero from Dragon Quest XI is joining the fight.
He looks interesting and looks like he plays like Link so he could be good for sword and shield players out there *cough* me *cough*. The biggest character reveal came near the end of the direct, it looks like Nintendo is listening to their community because they added another person to the fight that a lot of people wanted (no not Waluigi). Banjo and Kazooie will be joining the fight starting this fall!
Even more of a reason to not put this game down!
Nintendo has a TON of games in the pipeline, most of the games were announced at a direct earlier in the year or from E3 last year but this time the difference is that we finally have release dates! The game I am looking forward to is Astral Chain!
This game looks very combo heavy and I think it has potential to be one of the best upcoming games on the Nintendo Switch! Astral Chain has a release date of August 30, 2019 and I will be copping DAY ONE! There are also many other games such as the remake of the classic game Zelda: Link’s Awakening and the newly announced Luigi’s Mansion 3!
Which both have 2019 release dates! The list of games with their release dates are below, take a look:

The absolute last thing Nintendo showed us before ending was news about Zelda. When I first saw Link I kind of blew past it because I thought it was more DLC, but NOPE! Nintendo has confirmed that a sequel to Breath of the Wild is in development! I swear Nintendo wants you to go broke with all these games coming out in September, going to be a broke fall for a lot of people. I was disappointed that we didn’t get any news about Bayonetta 3 and Metroid 4 but everything else they showed was very good! Are these game announcements have you all excited to go to the e-Store and get you some new games!? Let us know, and if you haven’t seen the Nintendo E3 Direct you can watch it below. Until next time y’all, PEACE!
