If the E3 show did not really, physically, take place in Los Angeles, the conferences surrounding it were there, online.
Ubisoft, Square Enix, Capcom, Xbox with Bethesda… The editors went there with their announcements (a
Guardian of the Galaxy
there), but none really made the event.
That’s why gamers are calling on Nintendo to save E3.
The Japanese giant launches its Nintendo Direct Tuesday at 6 p.m., but fans are already hot on social networks, between expectations, memes and bingo.
The sequel to “Zelda: Breath of the Wild”
“Hello, I’m Eiji Aonuma, producer of
The Legend of Zelda series
. Many of you said to yourself when you saw me: “Ah that’s it, we are going to have information on the sequel to
Breath fof the Wild
“. Sorry. “No, this is not an excerpt from the conference, and it is of no interest, the fans shout in chorus. This apology dates back to last February, when Eiji Aonuma presented the
Skyward Sword HD
to be released in July. Thanks, no thanks for the emotional lift. Since a teasing at E3 2019,
Breath of the Wild 2
never ceases to feed rumors and expectations.
But as the producer had specified: “The development of Breath of the Wild 2 continues to run its course and we should be able to tell you more about it this year”.
Now we are this year!
The new Switch Pro console
It is no longer a secret, although it is not yet official.
After the Switch Lite, Nintendo is preparing a new model of its Switch, which is already four years old but continues to explode in sales.
No need for a next gen console, therefore, not for now.
This new Switch, let’s say the Switch Pro, should look to keep up with technological advancements, and not lag too far behind the PS5 and Xbox Series, with a larger, higher-resolution screen.
And… that’s it for now.
A new Mario game
Who says Nintendo, says Mario.
But there are so many
games out there now
that you might be super excited or super disappointed depending on the type of game. So we can tell
Super Mario Odyssey
already dates back to 2017,
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
was not really a new
Mario Kart Tour
, nor Mario Kart Live for that matter.
And the mustached man has already given everything for his 35th birthday last year.
Unless … a sequel to
Come on, no false hope, we will surely have to be satisfied with
Mario Golf: Super Rush
, already announced for June 25.
News from “Metroid Prime 4”
It is the game that has become an Arlésienne in spite of itself.
Announced at E3 2017,
Metroid Prime 4
suffered a big setback, when in early 2019, Nintendo announced to stop everything to start over.
A clean slate and a change of studio, Bandai Namco Studios giving way to Retro Studios, which had taken care of the previous episodes.
Nintendo explained that the project was then not up to its expectations, and therefore those of the fans.
Development is still in progress, but come on, a little teaser?
