That was an action-packed 25 minutes. Nintendo confirmed the return of Samus with Metroid Prime 4 - although we only saw a title screen and little more - and showed some more of the frankly bonkers looking Super Mario Odyssey. That and a new Yoshi game, a new Kirby and glimpses of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. See it all as it happened here.

Our live coverage of this event has finished

Coverage

16:07

Hello, hi, welcome, you.

16:08

Under an hour to go until Nintendo's short presentation begins.

16:08

This isn't like the other conferences, of course - as is Nintendo's style in recent years, it's a pre-recorded video presentation.

16:08

And a brief one, too - this'll be 30 minutes long.

16:10

Though Nintendo will keep up with a steady drip-feed of news and announcements with its Treehouse streams straight after and throughout E3.

16:11

And - most importantly - there'll be an Arms tournament on the 14th.

16:19

tpsaloha says:

June Armes, July Spaltoon, August Mario+Rabbids, November Odyssey. So what's coming in September and October?

September is Pokken.

16:20

That does leave October, November and December. Games we know are coming this year include Xenoblade, Fire Emblem Warriors and Super Mario Odyssey which could all fit into those remaining three months.

16:20

And yes, Xenoblade is still down for 2017. No, I don't believe it either.

16:22

And honestly, a game a month? Nintendo's doing a good job of making sure there's a steady stream of things to play for the Switch.

16:28

My own hopes for this? I'd actually take Mario Kart 8 DLC, word on new characters/maps for Arms (yes I know it's not out yet but I've been playing it a while and I'm already hooked) and Virtual Console coming to Switch TODAY along with Super Mario Sunshine, F-Zero GX and Super Monkey Ball.

16:28

We're probably just going to see some more Mario though. I'd also be okay with that.

16:55

Five minutes!

16:55

Five minutes until 2017 is officially declared The Year of Birdo.

16:55

We live in exciting times.

16:56

Imagine, though. Koizumi waddles on-stage in a Birdo outfit.

16:56

Doesn't even say anything.

16:57

Just stands there, staring down the camera for a good five minutes, soundtracked by silence.

16:57

Then, a nod.

16:57

Screen fades to white, text fades in.

16:57

Stop egging him on.

16:57

2017: The Year of Birdo.

16:57

IMAGINE.

16:57

PSfourskin says:

Just emits an egg

17:00

Yes! And it cracks open and a naked Kimishima in pink body paint walks out and just quietly squawks 'Birdo'.

16:59

ONE MINUTE.

16:59

That's 60 seconds. Less than that now!

17:00

We're up and running with Arms. Which is out this week!

17:00

It's quite good.

17:01

Next, Rocket League - confirmation that it's coming to Switch.

17:01

That's a thing.

17:01

Then! FIFA on Switch, which we know about - not parity with the PS4 versions etc, but it does look decent.

17:01

And! Splatoon 2 - it's out next month.

17:02

Can. Not. Wait.

17:02

Reggie at home. He's probably just taken the dust sheets off those sofas.

17:03

This is what it'd be like to go around Reggie's for a coffee.

17:03

Reggie's home is weird.

17:03

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to begin.

17:04

Also get over yourselves you ninnies and play Xenoblade Chronicles X. Yes the music isn't all that but it's a brilliant game - and a fascinating precursor to Breath of the Wild with its open world play.

17:05

Corr blimey guv'nor let's go to Elysium wotcha!

17:05

A similar battle system, with fresh anime styles. And crazy English accents that skirt all across the country.

17:06

I think Tom's pointed out in the past there are strong Skies of Arcadia vibes to this.

17:06

A good thing, of course.

17:06

It does look a bit tamer than Xenoblade Chronicles X.

17:06

Confirmation that it's sticking with Holiday 2017.

17:06

I'm going on holiday the first week of July, so maybe it's then?

17:07

A new Kirby!

17:07

And another reminder that you owe it to yourself to play the two most recent 3DS Kirby games - they're wonderful.

17:08

2018 release for that.

17:08

Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi is standing outside the Nintendo office looking very pleased with himself.

17:09

And here's Isihara from the Pokémon company. What's it all about?

17:09

Pokken DX is one thing.

17:10

The other important thing is that I'm writing Pokémon correctly. Tom gets angry if we don't.

17:10

Game Freak is working on a new mainline Pokémon for the series?

17:10

NEXT!

17:11

Hooo boy.

17:11

Metroid Prime 4.

17:11

The megaton.

17:11

It's in development for Switch.

17:11

Just a logo for now.

17:12

And to bring us crashing down to Earth, another mediocre Yoshi game.

17:12

That's in 2018.

17:13

Straight into Fire Emblem Warriors.

17:13

This'll be our first proper look at the game in action - we've known about it for a while.

17:13

Though I'm sure you know what to expect. You'll smash up lots of baddos.

17:14

Chrom, Marth and all the crew are in. Smashing things up.

17:14

It's a nice fit of theme and series, so I'm sure it'll be fun if familiar. Hyrule Warriors was rather lovely after all.

17:14

That one's this autumn.

17:14

AND!

17:14

Aonuma, who did a Zelda or two.

17:15

He makes centre partings cool. He makes me want a centre parting. What a dude.

17:15

This'll be Breath of the Wild DLC - Trail of the Sword is what we're getting this summer.

17:15

A challenge mode of sorts.

17:16

And the real big news - a Tingle suit. (Though I think we knew about that already).

17:17

And from that, a teaser for the second DLC pack that's coming towards the end of the year.

17:18

Zelda at the centre of the key art - which gives some weight to the theory she'll be playable in this new expansion.

17:18

New Amiibo for the Champions in Breath of the Wild.

17:18

Reggie's on the beach now. He seems very serious about it though.

17:20

Only ten more minutes to go. I could take a little longer honestly.

17:20

Mazzle says:

Reggie has a basement that he's doing all this from, that basement has, many uses.

Chilling.

17:20

Mario + Rabbids gets a brief mention. Donlan asks whether they're making an Amiibo of Yves.

17:21

I still can't get over the fact I want to play that game.

17:21

Rocket League gets a little more love.

17:21

What a perfect fit for the Switch.

17:22

Cross-platform play, and with exclusive items. Oh, and Mario and Luigi hats, of course.

17:23

Wow. Yoshi looks... different.

17:23

Super Mario Odyssey, which I'm getting serious Hoskins vibes from.

17:23

Not sure whether that's a good thing or not.

17:23

YES.

17:24

YES.

17:24

YES.

17:24

This theme tune. That cap. This game.

17:24

This is just too much.

17:24

It's out October 27th.

17:25

And that was this year's Nintendo presentation.

17:25

Wow.

17:26

Metroid's the headline, obviously. But Mario looks so, so crazy - and we're well overdue a crazy Mario game after the relatively strait-laced 3D World.

17:27

We're going to sign off and let you watch the Nintendo Treehouse presentations in peace. And also hit the bottle after a fairly intense few days of E3 conferences and presentations.

17:28

Our team in LA will be taking care of you from here on out, bringing you news and impressions from the show floor.

17:29

The conferences and presentations are done, but the show most definitely isn't - expect plenty of news and a few more surprises over the next few days.

17:32

mintgreen says:

Why wasn't there a single 3DS game featured?

Keep your eyes on the Treehouse presentations - Nintendo has a knack of announcing new games during them.

17:32

I'll leave you there - thanks for joining us these past few days, it's been fun!

17:33

And see you all back here for Gamescom I guess - tara!

    I hope Mario isn't 720p, the aliasing on this feed is a huge let down compared to Switch games so far.

    Wasn't Xenoblade delayed to early 2018?
    Rack 2 years ago
    If they maintain consistency then that's Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade Chronicles and Odyssey this year. Outside of multiplatform content that does feel strong enough to maintain some momentum for Switch.

    I didn't like the Fludd-less platforming sections actually. But I appreciate I'm alone on that front.
    tpsaloha 2 years ago
    Super Mario Sunshine is one of the best 3D Marios. IMO. I loved FLUDD but I also loved those crazy levels without it. The level on the back of the flying bird-thingy was crazy.
    MORZTAN 2 years ago
    Completed Sunshine again recently. It is really boring!

    Some of the best parts of Sunshine were where you didn't have FLUDD.

    Sunshine was designed to introduce your kids to swearing.
    Jimjamyaha 2 years ago
    I really enjoyed Super Mario Sunshine.
    Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago
    For me Sunshine didn't have enough platforming and variation. Every world looked kind of samey - and the only real platforming challenges came from the bonus stages. It was just... flat. In more than one way.
    Jimjamyaha 2 years ago
    @specialgamer basically it wasn't Super Mario 64 2 and people didn't like the FLUDD gimmick.
    specialgamer 2 years ago
    What was so bad about Mario Sunshine anyway? The graphics were amazing in the day (the water effects, character animation, etc.) and it played really well. Got to have one of the sunniest, most uplifting vibes of any game ever.

    Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago
    I hope Nintendo have a better DLC strategy for Fire Emblem Warriors than they did for Hyrule Warriors. The main game had soooo much content that even after 100 hours I wasn't even close to getting enough to even consider starting the DLC. I wouldn't be surprised if some people skipped it because the main game was just so big to begin with

    @MrSnakeCake I wouldn't be surprised to get a highlight reel, especially in a Nintendo conference. It's something they do quite often.I also fondly remember the highlight reel from the early days of the Wii then they simply put in a few seconds of Super Mario Galaxy footage. At that point noone had heard about the game. It was a nice move, of course they talked about it later in the conference but to mention it next to lots of other 3rd party titles was a nice move.
    Kami 2 years ago
    Looking forward to the ARMS tourney, glad they're not going to stretch this one out.

And perhaps 1 or 2 persons being invited to shortly talk about it, for example Square and EA, that would be enough for most people and then we can do non-stop nintendo stuff

    Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago
    @MrSnakeCake I definitely want to see 3rd party support, but I'm sure I can't get excited if they show 10 minutes of Skyrim running on the Switch. Even if the portable aspect is completely new to the game this is not the kind of 3rd party support to brag about at E3. It's nice to have but we have already seen it and it won't convince anyone that Nintendo sorted out their 3rd party issues in the coming months.
    Neo7Geo 2 years ago
    @chrismikehunt Yep, would be incredible.

    @Der_tolle_Emil Netflix makes sense. If only Nintendo offered some kind of ill advised TV service, eh? ;)

    As it ran on PS3 and 360 (and still sells well, always in the top ten many years after its release) I'd love to see GTA 5 on the switch. Having full fat GTA portable would be something special.
    MrSnakeCake 2 years ago
    And 3rd party support is good to fill the gaps between Nintendo's releases.
    vert1go 2 years ago
    Feel sure we'll see a good bit of Fifa since it wasn't shown at EA.
    MrSnakeCake 2 years ago
    @Der_tolle_Emil true true, but Nintendo doesn't need to go in great detail about it right now, we still have gamescom and tokyo. But a small portion of the show actually showing that 3rd party support is there and being worked on is nice
    Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago
    @Jimjamyaha I get Netflix for convenience. The Switch does better than a mobile phone (kickstand and speakers in the front) and some households might not have more than one tablet. Honestly no idea why people want a browser though. Everyone surely has got to have a mobile phone or other device in reach almost 24/7.
    vert1go 2 years ago
    "XCO-ME, Mario!".
    Der_tolle_Emil 2 years ago
    @MrSnakeCake I am really curious what they will show in terms of 3rd party support. I know they need it but I almost feel like that a "me too" mentality might actually kill some of Nintendo's momentum they have with the console right now. If I were them I probably wouldn't go into too many details about games that we have seen on other systems a year ago, regardless of good they were.
    Jimjamyaha 2 years ago
    Genuine question for those asking for Netflix & Internet browsers on Switch. Why?Surely people have a phone or a tablet which would do the job far better than the clunky Switch keyboard.I understand the one less device argument but still, seems a little redundant for most people as the screen isn't much bigger than a large smartphone.
    vert1go 2 years ago
    I think Mario XCOM from the Ubi conference is as close as we're likely to get.Just a shame the bloody rabbids are in that one.
    MrSnakeCake 2 years ago
    im curious for the 3rd party support the switch will show.dark souls/witcher 3 or xcom would be nice.And since the vita has a xcom game the switch should be doable.
    vert1go 2 years ago
    As long as we get a section where the player, as Zelda, has to slowly trudge all the way back to the shrine with Link's body. Through poison. Collecting tears of light. Or something similarly thrilling.Or just anything to extend that ending a bit really.

    I'd forgotten about the Zelda DLC that might get shown off. I'm still baselessly half-expecting the new story element to be a section where you play as Zelda, 100 years ago, just after Link's put in the shrine.

    A new F-Zero would be fantastic but I'd also get super excited if they simply announce a remastered F-Zero GX. The only thing that's really needed is a proper widescreen mode. Add in the AX tracks as a bonus and they have a real winner. It would also be the perfect game to showcase GameCube virtual console but I highly doubt they are ready to reveal that yet (if it's even planned).
