E3 Day 4 and last day (15.06) Nintendo and more

We had to be able to expect heavy. For me it was not a great E3 from Nintendo. Honestly, I only attended the main lecture. The Treehouse they make is all about gameplay and it's hard to write anything on the subject without the pictures to back it up. So it wouldn't do anything for our loyal readers.

So let's get down to business and talk about what the Japanese firm had to offer during their conference.

Small intro and we realize that the Switch is already 5 years old. Then we quickly start the festivities.

I didn't know what to think. The lifeless Ganondorf is seen being carried, then thrown off a cliff. Pretty macabre for the firm and for the franchise it is about. It was a little intro dark enough to introduce Kazuia Mishima. Yes the iconic character of Tekken joins the cast of Super Smash Bros Ultimate. I find it pretty cool and it's a real collaboration with the Tekken franchise. So we'll probably get more characters (hopefully they don't add too many either). We get a bit of humor with the same cinematic, but instead of Ganondorf we have Kirby, who naturally doesn't fall because the bugger flies so well.

We move on to a new announcement and this time it's about informing us that Life is strange and Life is strange True colors will also be available on the console on the same dates as planned for the other consoles. Except for the Remaster of the first one that will come during the year.

Super Monkey Ball must be played by everyone at least once. This game is super nice, funny, accessible to all and even annoying at times. Well the franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary, SMB Banana Mania will see the light of day on October 5th. A collection of games from the franchise with a graphic overhaul to make everything more aesthetic.

In the same vein, Mario Party will have the right to its All Star. The 100 best mini-games of the franchise condensed into a single game. All this for October 29 of this year. In short, a good idea for the successful franchise.

Finally something new for Metroid, yes Metroid Dread will be released on October 8th this year. Good news and a graphic idea that I don't find bad. We stay in the classic 2D that we know from the franchise but with the beauty, fluidity and possible mechanics that we can have with today's technologies. A real plus and a real nostalgic reminder. This game can really be the end of the year hit if it is as good as the cutscene suggests.

Just Dance 2022 will naturally see the light of day on the Big N console, it seems logical. We will be able to move on our Switch with this franchise which also exists and has lasted for a very long time.

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot with the Freezer, Cell, Majin Boo saga arrives on September 24 this year. A game that has received a good global reception will finally be able to be played on the Nintendo console.

Then a little more info on the future game of Mario Golf. The so-called Super Rush, arrives June 25, so soon and pre-orders are possible. We were able to see the different ways of playing. This with the standard mode, speed (race without paying attention to who shoots to finish first), battle (in an arena in gladiator golf mode), Adventure too. Future updates are golden and already planned and some will even be free.

We had the right to Monster Hunter Stories 2, which we have already seen so we will not come back to the subject.

Wario is back with the next WarioWare. Always so crazy and funny. This game can be enjoyed by everyone on September 10th. We got to see some mini-games and frankly it was fun. I invite everyone to go and get a feel for the game.

Then came a probable future console hit. Shin Megami Tensei V. A girl in Tokyo, with a totally banal life ends up in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Demons and angels wage war there and we find ourselves in the middle of it all. The fights are very well animated but are turn based. The goal is to evolve and make your way in this devastated Tokyo, but not alone. Indeed we can recruit demons. These will accompany you and will be faithful to you. You will be able to evolve them, merge them to create new powerful demons and thus have a team in your image. It looks really well done and might surprise more than one.

We then come to Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. An adventure and horror game. Equipped with a camera one must try to survive the onslaught of the ghosts and relive the story time and time again from the different points of view of each of the protagonists.

We are then told about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, we have already seen it during the Ubisoft conference so nothing new on that side.

Adventure Wars, the tactical war game will have the right to its return. The 1 and 2 will be available on the console on December 3. Pre-orders are available today.

Hyrule Warriors is releasing an Expansion Pack and will be available in waves, premiering June 18.

Then we have a little update on the Zelda Skyward Sword remake. We had the right to see the way we can play. We can play either in a classic way or with the movement options. Joycons in hand we can then play while moving, an option that seems logical and fun to me, therefore a good omen for everyone.

A new small Game and Watch Special Zelda console will be released. With the games, Zelda, Zelda 2, Links Awakening and the traditional Game and Watch but in which we play Link and not the base character.

A new video opens and this is a new trailer for Zelda Breath of the Wild, the sequel. It's not called 2 but they just noted that this is the sequel to BotW. It features bizarre villains, Zelda falling, and Hyrule Castle begin to levitate due to a mysterious and ominous force.

The Treehouse begins shortly after, as I noted, this one was not followed.

Bandai Namco will then take over the hostilities. Nothing very impacting to see sincerely. At least not for me. They talked about House of Ashes, a horror shooter game. We are entitled to the fantastic and the paranormal. There will be a lot of deaths to live during the game and everything has been written to be able to scare the player. The game comes out at a perfect time given its style because we will have the right to get it from October 22.

After that there wasn't anything really interesting.

In conclusion I find that the more the hours and days passed, the less interesting it was. Square Enix has brought about a rebound with some nice surprises but I sincerely remain unsatisfied. I expected better and it must be said that this year, Ubisoft, Xbox and Bethesda will have been above the rest compared to the rest without having been great.

An E3 which gave pleasure with some nice news but frankly nothing very transcendent.

I wish you happy reading and see you next time!
