Upcoming Nintendo Switch games: 5 best Nintendo E3 2019 reveals

The big Nintendo Switch releases you need to know about

Upcoming Nintendo Switch games: 5 best Nintendo E3 2019 reveals

Nintendo's E3 2019 has been and gone and what a blast it was, with the gaming giant showcasing a number of its upcoming Nintendo Switch games.

It decided to focus on some of its most-popular franchises, add in a touch of the new and also disappoint a little (Animal Crossing faces a delay on the Switch, boo!). In all, then, it was a typical E3 display.

But, what we are all interested in is the games that were on show. So, sit back, relax and prepare for a deluge of YouTube videos as we reveal Nintendo's biggest, er, reveals. That way you can make your mind up if they are set for our best Nintendo Switch games list.

1. Witcher 3 is official, but we all knew that

There were rumours that Witcher 3 was going to get ported to the Switch (thanks to some leaks from those voicing the characters) and lo and behold, Witcher 3 is being ported to the Switch. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the game we all know and love, with all the DLCs unlocked and the expansion packs chucked in. Whether Geralt of Rivia works well on the small screen remains to be seen but it's a big win for the Switch.

Pre-order Witcher 3 now on Amazon for £59.99

2. Luigi Mansion 3 is set to be a classic

There's something about the Luigi Mansion games. For a start, there haven't been many which means that they still feel fresh and new. The third instalment looks fantastic. It still has the brilliant blend of horror and comedy but now there's the addition of co-op play with someone called Gooigi, which is a doppelganger of Luigi made of jelly. No, come back, seriously - watch the trailer, it looks great.

3. There's going to be a Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel

There is nothing better on the Switch than Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That's a fact. Nintendo knows this and that's why it is making a sequel to the insanely popular game. It hasn't got a name yet (unless they stick with the not-very-catchy Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) buy what little we have seen looks lovely, even if the tone does look quite a bit darker.

4. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening finally gets a release date

We've known for a while that Link's Awakening was getting a remaster on the Nintendo Switch, but now we have an actual release date. You will be able to play the game from September 20th. Oh, and if you fancy becoming a bit of a games designer, you can create your own dungeons to explore in the game, which sounds like too much hard work, but we're sure some people will be into it.

5. Super Smash Bros gets Banjo and Kazooie

Originally characters that cropped up way back in 1998 on the Nintendo 64, in the imaginatively titled Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo and Kazooie will be coming to Super Smash Bros, This is big news for those who voted for the characters back in 2018 (20,000 of you did) to get a part in Super Smash Bros. For the rest of us, the trailer shows off some pretty impressive combos.
