Animal Crossing, Zelda and Gooigi The best of Nintendos E3 event

After a weekend of press events, E3 officially kicks off in earnest this morning. Nintendo continued its tradition of starting the show off with its customary Direct streaming event. Aside from a brief Doug Bowser/Bowser Koopa mixup at the top, there was very little executive chatter, with the company instead focusing on trailers.
And thats for the best. There was a LOT crammed into less than an hour here (a nice change of pace after last nights Square slog). Though, as usual, it was a mix of new and old, with a few surprises sprinkled throughout.
Heres the best of what Nintendo had to offer this year at E3.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons The big news here, sadly, is a delay. The long awaited new addition to the Animal Crossing franchise has been pushed back to March 2020 in order to tweak the title. We got a nice new trailer out of it, at least.

Zelda: Links Awakening Not gonna lie excited about this remaster for the Switch. The new version of Links Awakening is due out on September 20.

Luigis Mansion 3 Id be remiss if I didnt take this time to mention Gooigi, Luigis gelatinous clone. Still no exact date for the haunted house game, which is set for release some time this year.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel The company closed things out with a pretty big teaser. The Switchs first blockbuster, Breath of the Wild is getting a sequel. Not much in the way of gameplay footage, or anything else, really. Just a not that the title is now in development. Better than nothing, I guess.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics In time for the upcoming Netflix reboot series, Jim Hensons The Dark Crystal is getting its very own Switch title later this year.

Contra: Rogue Corps The Switch is about to get a whole lot of Contra. In addition to a post-apocalyptic entry, the classics of the series are being reissued on the Switch later this year.

Collection of Mana Speaking of collections of beloved franchises, Squares Secret of Mana series (including Trials of Mana) is getting a full collection for the Switch, two years after arriving in Japan.
