It was the third day of the e3 event. Yesterday, on June 15, 2021, it was the turn of giant Nintendo. Several games were highlighted and there was no less than 40 minutes of new (video) content! We have briefly summarized the most exciting events. Curious about what Nintendo had to say? Keep reading!

The Legend of Zelda

First of all, The Legend of Zelda returns in 2022. The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch is scheduled for 2022. The adventure will now also partly take place high above Hyrule. Breath of the Wild made its debut in 2017. The game won several awards such as:

We are thrilled for the new game of Zelda and the trailer looked promising to!

Mario Party Superstars

Second of all, Mario Party Superstars is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 29! The game has 100(!) minigames. This will be the 12th game in the Mario Party series. The game is expected to be released in the end of October.

Other games that will be released and shout be mentioned are:

Metroid Dread

WarioWare: Get It Together

Life is Strange Remastered Collection

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Mario Golf: Super Rush 

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania

Shin Megami Tensei 5

All eight games looked promising on the E3 event and we suggest to at least try one game. We spoke about Mario Golf: Super Rush previously. The Nintendo games are in general family friendly games and a great opportunity to develop your gaming skills!

Zelda themed handheld device

We saved the most exciting news for last. Maybe it isn’t such a big thing as we make it. But we know for sure we’ll try to buy it when it’s available. For the 35th birthday of Zelda, Nintendo is releasing a Zelda themed handheld device. The device will have four games installed. You’ll be able to play the first entry in The Legend of Zelda series, followed by its sequel, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The fourth game is the Game & Watch Vermin game, but with Link’s character imposed over the original character. In addition, the device can be used as a timer or a digital clock. It’s not the first time Nintendo releases such a device. Previously there was a device released for the 35th birthday of Mario. That device had three games included. The Zelda handheld device will be released on November 12th for $49.99.
