In Nintendo’s first day at E3, we learned about new characters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a sequel to Breath of the Wild, and we even caught a glimpse of some new Pokémon! In less than 45 minutes, Nintendo broke the internet.
However, Nintendo revealed so much more than what just said. New games, remakes, and new features were unveiled, and we picked out the best of the best! Here are our favorite reveals from Nintendo at E3.
Nintendo E3 key takeaways
Animal Crossing New Horizons is coming March 2020
We’ve known that a new Animal Crossing game was coming to the Nintendo Switch for a while. However, when we finally got to see it today, our expectations were blown out of the water.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons takes place on a tropical paradise. Here you can build up your new home along with all the colorful characters you have learned to love.
Initially, Nintendo announced that this game was going to come out around Christmas 2019. However, today’s trailer pushed the game back to March 2020. At the end of the day, we’re really not all that upset; we’re just happy we got a trailer!
By the way, where was Reggie during all of this?
Ah, makes sense.
No More Heroes 3 is happening
We don’t think anyone was expecting to see this trailer, but we are so glad that we did.
No More Heroes was one of the hidden gems of the Nintendo Wii. The game stars Travis Touchdown – an assassin who hacks and slashes every bad guy he comes across with his beam sword.
Travis is also a complete nerd. His apartment is filled with loads of pro-wrestling and anime collectibles. Basically, he’s one of the most identifiable video game protagonists ever. The only issue is that we haven’t seen Travis since the sequel in 2010, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.
However, in 2020 we will finally reunite with Travis, in what will surely be one of the top titles of the year.
Now that this is out of the way, please Nintendo, put Travis in Smash.
Super Mario Maker 2 will have online multiplayer
As hyped as fans were for Super Mario Maker 2 when we learned that the game was not going to have online multiplayer we thought “What’s the point then?”
Luckily, Nintendo confirmed in a tweet today that Super Mario Maker 2 will have online multiplayer in a future update.
Mr. Tezuka has confirmed that the ability to play online multiplayer with friends is coming to #SuperMarioMaker2 in a future update. Stay tuned for more information to come. https://t.co/oxGuEcJ8Om pic.twitter.com/1AfK1vEGIe

Basically, the game will not have it at launch, but Nintendo has seen the error of their ways and will include it later.
Trials of Mana is getting an HD remake!
If you put 100 gamers in a room together and ask what are the best classic RPGs, almost all of them will mention the Secret of Mana series.
The games have all of the feel of the Final Fantasy series, but with even more whimsical charm and nature. That charm looks like it is at the forefront in the new trailer for the HD remake of Trials of Mana.
The game has the same charm of the original, but with a much-needed cosmetic upgrade.
The game is set to come out in early 2020. However, Nintendo also announced that you can play all three games in the Secret of Mana library right now on your Nintendo Switch!
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to Switch
Nintendo has already brought some amazing games from the past decade to the Switch. This includes Saints Row: The Third, L.A. Noire, and now The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The game along with all of its DLC will be available to play later this year. However, you can preorder it now!
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is coming soon
Luigi’s Mansion has gone from being a cult-classic to one of our favorite Nintendo series out there. The new trailer for Luigi’s Mansion 3 looks like more of the spooky adventures we love.
In the games, Luigi is basically a Ghostbuster who uses a vacuum cleaner to capture ghosts as he tries to find his lost brother. Here, Luigi brings a few new tricks including a new gooey Luigi and new attacks. However, the best thing that Luigi is bringing is both local and online multiplayer. Now, you can prove to your friends that you ain’t afraid of no ghost as you dominate the competition.
We don’t have to wait that long to try them out ourselves since the game is set to come out later this year!
