The Nintendo Switch has been the fastest selling video game console since last year and its future is looking even brighter thanks to a strong lineup of new games coming in the next year. Nintendo shared new details on dozens of upcoming Switch titles during their presentation at E3, the year’s biggest video game event.
While other companies held huge press conferences in Los Angeles, Nintendo stuck with their usual Nintendo Direct video briefing to share its latest news. As a result, the presentation offered roughly 40 minutes of game footage with none of the added bravado that often comes with E3’s live conferences.
Past Nintendo consoles like the Wii and Wii U were criticized for their lack of support from third-party developers, but Nintendo has had no problem bringing some of the most popular games of this console generation to Switch. Combined with the Nintendo’s legendary first-party franchises like "Pokemon" and "The Legend of Zelda," the Switch boasts an impressive library despite being just two-years old.
Here’s everything Nintendo announced at E3 2019:
"The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening" will be released on Switch on September 20th. The game is a remake of a classic Game Boy adventure.
