Nintendo Direct E3 2019 live report

A first look at Animal Crossing, Banjo comes to Smash - oh yeah, and a Breath of the Wild sequel too. 

They really did save the best until last. Nintendo rounded off the conference part of this year's E3 by showing off Animal Crossing - which gets a slight delay - Luigi's Mansion 3 and so much else besides. Oh yeah, we got our first look at the Breath of the Wild sequel too...

Coverage

16:34

Why hello.

16:35

And isn't this a more civil time to get together and digest some video game news than two in the morning.

16:35

Around 25 minutes to go until Nintendo's Direct kicks off and yes, I am excited.

16:43

mrk142 says:

Surprised you’re still going after last night Martin

16:44

As in I should have been fired for it? That's a fair shout, really.

16:47

Kami says:

I'm honestly surprised most of us are still here after the amount of crap we've given this E3.

At least I'm getting paid for it. I don't know what everyone else's excuse is.

16:48

Also I love E3 and would be watching everything regardless. It's dumb, often pointless and sometimes plain horrible, but there's something still charming about the crazy pageantry of it all.

16:48

That and it's a lot of fun hanging out here with all of you.

16:49

So what to expect? Well Animal Crossing news first and foremost.

16:49

A release date would be lovely.

16:50

Beyond that, the big games for Nintendo this year are Luigi's Mansion 3, Link's Awakening and Pokémon Sword and Shield, so expect info on all those.

16:50

Everything else is a *mystery*, which is how I like it.

16:52

Gazz says:

Not sure anyone will top Mr Reeves for years to come.

They should bring him out for an Animal Crossing crossover. Reeves and Tortimer.

16:53

Kami says:

Someone could host that Beiber vs. Tom Cruise fight next year.

Bieber and Cruise confirmed for Smash it is.

16:55

I'm personally excited for Daemon X Machina and Astral Chain, so would gobble up any new info/details on those.

16:55

And I'm always up for a surprise eshop release too.

16:59

Under a minute to go.

16:59

Pounding my fists on my desk, shouting 'BIRDO, BIRDO, BIRDO'.

17:00

Let's do this.

17:00

And away we go.

17:01

First up is... Smash!

17:01

I'm guessing this'll be a character reveal - and indeed it is.

17:01

Dragon Quest's hero coming to Smash.

17:01

Plus, of course, lots of other Dragon Quest-related goodies.

17:01

This is good stuff.

17:02

An assortment of heroes too, it looks like, from various Dragon Quest titles - so not just the hero from 11.

17:03

Oh, it looks like *all* the heroes. It's not as if Smash does things by halves.

17:03

That's coming later this summer.

17:03

And hey, let's have a look at Dragon Quest 11 S while we're at it too.

17:04

Even though I wasn't entirely sold on 11, I'm looking forward to being able to take it anywhere with me.

17:04

A proper release date for Dragon Quest 11 S too - it's coming on September 27th.

17:05

Yoshiaki Koizumi is presenting, so we're in good hands.

17:05

And we're also getting a proper intro to Doug Bowser - the new Reggie.

17:05

And of course we can't have an intro without bringing up that surname.

17:06

I dig Doug.

17:06

Enough of all that, though, here's Luigi's Mansion 3.

17:06

It's set in a haunted Travelodge or something.

17:07

Game is spent trying to get room service to not come in when you're lying hungover in bed.

17:07

And trying to sneak a tiny can of Heineken out of the mini-bar without triggering whatever device it is that lets you know you've taken a drink.

17:08

Also you hoover up ghosts and shit.

17:08

Gooigi is a new companion for Luigi.

17:08

He's Luigi.

17:08

But made out of goo.

17:08

You see?

17:08

It allows for local co-op, too.

17:09

Luigi's Mansion 3 - available this year. So we're not getting a definitive release date just yet.

17:10

Kami says:

Martin, we all know it'll be a Halloween release.

That almost makes too much sense.

17:11

An all-new game now - tied into the new Netflix Dark Crystal series.

17:11

It looks like a strategy RPG.

17:11

It's also a hell of a WTF announcement.

17:11

The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance Tactics, that'll be then.

17:12

And quite the unexpected reveal.

17:12

Next! Link's Awakening.

17:12

Which looks splendid - the aesthetic oddly reminds me of 3D Dot Game Heroes.

17:13

An all-new feature - the ability to craft your own dungeons.

17:13

Zelda Maker? Not quite - it doesn't look like it runs as deep as that.

17:14

And we have a release date - September 20th.

17:14

That's soon!

17:14

Here's something new - and from Square Enix.

17:14

It's Seiken Densetsu!

17:14

Or Trials of Mana, as it's now called.

17:15

And it's coming early next year.

17:15

Before that though - why don't you play the Mana collection.

17:15

Which is finally being localised. And is hitting the eshop today.

17:15

I'll have some of that please.

17:15

And now! The Witcher 3.

17:15

I have no idea how it'll work either.

17:16

The artstyle does seem to have amped up the cartoony elements to help it work. Interested to see how it'll pan out.

17:16

Fire Emblem - the thinking man's Witcher - is next.

17:16

Who am I kidding Fire Emblem is for weebs.

17:16

And I'm a weeb and proud so bring it.

17:17

I look forward to skipping these cutscenes in the final game when it comes out next month.

17:18

Straight into a horror-themed section. First up it's Resident Evil.

17:19

The original Resident Evil was indeed released not that long ago on Switch.

17:20

The news here, though, is that Resident Evil 5 and 6 are coming to Switch.

17:20

And this is...

17:21

No More Heroes 3 - which, if you played this year's spin-off, won't be a surprise.

17:21

Also if you played that all the way through like I did, I'm sorry.

17:22

AND NOW.

17:22

An all-new Contra.

17:22

Why not, hey?

17:22

A shame it looks pretty weak though - with a focus on co-op play.

17:22

But anyway, everyone welcome back Konami.

17:23

Contra Rogue Corps - coming September 19th.

17:23

Or was that 24th sorry I'm confused.

17:23

Daemon X Machina now oh lord there are so many games.

17:24

And that's out on September 13th.

17:24

Why are all the games coming out in September?

17:25

Oh hey here's that Panzer Dragoon remake that I thought would never actually happen.

17:25

It's looking fantastic.

17:25

And it's coming this winter.

17:25

This is quite the show so far.

17:26

A brief reminder that Pokémon is coming this year.

17:27

Astral Chain now please. The first Platinum game since... Nier Automata?

17:28

I might be wrong, but given the typical cadence of that studio it certainly feels too long since we've played a new one of its games.

17:29

And Astral Chain is out on August 30th (though I think we knew that already).

17:29

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT WE DIDN'T KNOW.

17:30

We didn't know about whatever this is - the new game from John Romero's studio, in partnership with Paradox.

17:30

It's an isometric action 30s-me-do that looks fascinating.

17:30

Empire of Sin - coming next spring.

17:30

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 now, showing Square Enix how to to Marvel.

17:31

Out on July 19th - again, as we knew.

17:32

Crypt of the Necrodancer - the Zelda rhythm action game - is up next. And it's out sooooooooooon.

17:32

June 13th - that'll be Thursday.

17:32

NEXT GAME NOW THEN.

17:32

Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.

17:33

Which is out in November.

17:33

Phew, there's a lot going on here.

17:33

Here's Animal Crossing, though.

17:34

Oooooooh I'm so excited about this.

17:34

It looks like crafting is in.

17:34

As is a desert island backdrop.

17:34

OH MAN YOU CAN USE YOUR FISHING ROD TO POLEVAULT RIVERS.

17:35

And hang out with mates.

17:35

It's called New Horizon, it's out next March.

17:35

And I cannot wait.

17:35

Tom Nook is still a bellend though.

17:35

That release date marks a slight delay - originally this was planned to be a 2019 release.

17:36

MORE GAMES NOW.

17:36

Spyro!

17:36

Hollow Knight DLC!

17:36

Ni No Kuni!

17:36

Minecraft Dungeons!

17:36

The Elder Scrolls Blades!

17:37

My Friend Pedro!

17:37

Doom Eternal!

17:37

The Sinking City!

17:37

Wolfenstein Youngblood!

17:37

Dead by Daylight!

17:37

Alien Isolation!

17:37

Hang on, what?

17:37

Dragon Quest Builders 2! Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles!

17:38

Just Dance 2020!

17:38

No but really wind back a bit.

17:38

Alien Isolation?

17:38

Really!

17:38

Also hey Dauntless.

17:38

Super Mario Maker 2 and... Lord, I missed some didn't I?

17:38

Alien Isolation though!

17:39

Here's Banjo and Kazooie for Smash, because that's what you asked for you perverts.

17:40

Well, there it is.

17:40

That's coming this autumn.

17:40

And that was a lot of video game.

17:41

One final thing before we leave.

17:41

I have no idea what it will be.

17:41

It's... A new Zelda.

17:42

Cripes.

17:42

It's a darker spin, it looks like - almost like Majora's Mask to Breath of the Wild's Ocarina of Time.

17:42

And that's all we're getting.

17:43

INSOMANiAC says:

Clap THAT you cunts

17:43

And clap I did.

17:43

Still, no Birdo. Nintendo fails.

17:43

That was good, wasn't it?

17:45

What a way to end the conference part of the week.

17:45

So many games. So many awesome looking games.

17:45

I'm off to download the Mana Collection. We'll have plenty more on the site from the showfloor over the next few days!

17:45

And thank you so much for joining me. It's been fun!

    @WOLF13 you forgot sequels
    WOLF13 6 months ago
    So many ports and remakes. Where is Nintendo’s innovation?
    FunkyPhilFree 6 months ago
    No Metroid 🤬🤬
    DartFeldsWings 6 months ago
    Man that was great but for flip sake ninty I really really would like some metroid prime, pllleeeeeaaase
    Kami 6 months ago
    Well, it's been a riot but I'm going to go watch reaction videos on YouTube for the rest of the evening. Later all!
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Kami: Pretty much. I'd also like some non-Shrine rewards. Some of my favourite stuff was finding all the lore in Hyrule Castle, and the memory cutscenes. It'd be cool if there were more of those kind of non-tangible rewards for exploration, maybe filling in some timeline gaps (yes, I went there).
    Kami 6 months ago
    @xandaca - Exactly. What I want; dungeons, bosses, more enemy types and some more weapon types. Also a way to reinforce weapons.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Kami Taking that into account, and BotW having come out in early 2017, I'd be surprised if it arrived much later than Christmas 2020.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Hopefully at that point it'll pull data from Breath of the Wild so we don't need to run around revealing the map again and other things.
    Kami 6 months ago
    I also don't think we'll wait too long, if they reuse the map and assets and are just adding to the game, development for the sequel should be significantly reduced.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Daeltaja That would be pretty cool. Seems like a missed opportunity that she hasn't contributed much to her own legend.
    Daeltaja 6 months ago
    Judging by the trailer, it looks like she will. Maybe a second playable character?
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Kami @Daeltaja Nintendo's second attempts are usually pretty good at refining and building on what worked first time around, so I'm reasonably hopeful. Interesting to see if Zelda plays a more prominent role. Hopefully she won't just get snatched up again.
    Daeltaja 6 months ago
    I like the look of this Pokemon. Very chilled.
    Kami 6 months ago
    And I want to see Wooloo in combat. That troubles me.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    Maybe I should be troubled right now by how all my internal dialogue is saying right now is "Show a bulbasaur, show a bulbasaur, show a bulbasaur..."
    Kami 6 months ago
    They can just add to it, add dungeons and some towns to show Hyrule recovering and so on.
    Daeltaja 6 months ago
    @xandaca totally agree.
    Kami 6 months ago
    @xandaca - I had the same feeling. There's plenty for a sequel to build on, that's for sure, particularly if they don't have to remake the entire game map this time.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Kami: That wasn't a criticism, but a reflection of how I had far more fun doing my own thing rather than actually playing the main storyline/quest, which was rather bland. Even the Lynels were more fun to fight than the bosses. I hope the next game keeps the world as vivid and fun to explore, but puts more depth, length and variety into the main quest parts.
    JoelStinty 6 months ago
    @xandaca Yeah the same. Whilst nintendo may lack in certain areas (online!) they excel at showcasing their games with trailers and treehouse. I reall like that they show gameplay trailers.
    imagonnawin 6 months ago
    I appreciate that insomaniac has been running with the original 'cheer that you cunts' from the bethesda show and adapting it for each show. I also appreciate Martin including it in his coverage!Jeez, I'm impressed with the switch's upcoming games, great job.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Not disagreeing, but still. I'd even like some town-building, getting Hyrule back on its feet whilst facing down another threat
    Kami 6 months ago
    @xandaca - If only all tech demos lasted 100+ hours, eh?
    HerrProduk 6 months ago
    It feels odd finishing an E3 in the afternoons but it’s been a pleasure all. See you sporadically in the comments.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    @Kami: BotW always felt like a really accomplished tech demo first and foremost to me. Now I'd like them to deepen the story and gameplay outside the exploring and related mechanics.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Treehouse is the delicious icing on the Direct cake every year.
    Kami 6 months ago
    @xandaca - I'd love more dungeons and an underlying mystery to unravel.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    Treehouse Live is such a great addition to Nintendo's E3 showings. I just leave it on in the background, even during games I'm not especially interested in.
    HerrProduk 6 months ago
    @AtFruitBat I thought that too, especially after all the clever things they did with the BOTW soundtrack
    Britesparc 6 months ago
    Blimey.
    MarkMarkYepMark 6 months ago
    Luigi's Mansion 3 was the highlight for me. Didn't think the rest was that mind blowing. That they're working on a new main Zelda game is hardly shocking news.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    Re: Zelda, a stranger and darker take on BotW would be very welcome, particularly if they go for more variety in bosses and dungeons (and a greater number).
    Kami 6 months ago
    Indeed, a pleasure as always to hang out with you here Martin. And everyone else.
    AtFruitBat 6 months ago
    How long before someone reverses the music in the BoTW trailer? Because that sounded like it could be something else
    HerrProduk 6 months ago
    Cheers Martin
    sharland 6 months ago
    yeah i'm not convinced if I'm honest. aside from the sequal to BOTW nothing really grabbed my interest, it might be heresy but this xbox streaming is more interesting to me for playing games on the go
    Kami 6 months ago
    That was a much more optimistic end to E3 this year.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Thank you for your coverage as always Martin! Three cheers. And probably that Bethesda guy too, if you listen close enough.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Right Sony. Your turOH... Sorry.
    RedPyramidThingy 6 months ago
    I'm never getting my Metroid Prime Trilogy am I? Good show though
    imagonnawin 6 months ago
    Smashed it. It has something for everyone... Except waluigi.
    Kami 6 months ago
    *regains composure* Yeah, that was alright I guess...
    monkeywithnoeyes 6 months ago
    That was really good. Over to you sony!
    xandaca 6 months ago
    Games I'll be buying this year are Mario Maker 2, Doom, maybe Witcher III and Luigi's Mansion. My heart still breaks a little at no Pikmin, no matter how much I steel myself, and it's a shame Mario Odyssey never got any DLC.
    mrk142 6 months ago
    I did miss the smash bros patch notes though
    Kami 6 months ago
    That was packed.
    SBandy 6 months ago
    They killed it. Absolutely killed it.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    Okay, they got me at the end.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    THAT is how you do E3.
    monkeywithnoeyes 6 months ago
    Zelda in space!!!!!! Yeaaaaaah
    kantaroo3 6 months ago
    I'd say Nintendo 'won E3'. For sheer throughput of quality games.
    xandaca 6 months ago
    Looks like Pokémon is the big game for Nintendo this year, then.
    Kami 6 months ago
    *massive applause*

    I predict an xbox collaboration that people will go crazy for but will overshadow a lack of new Nintendo titles.

    @mrpon - Nintendo has stated no new hardware, just games games and more games this E3.
    Kami 6 months ago
    I'm honestly surprised most of us are still here after the amount of crap we've given this E3.
    mrpon 6 months ago
    Soooo new model?
    GrayHeart 6 months ago
    Golden Sun remaster, do it Nintendo. Do it now.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Hopefully they just open with the nipples. And keep it up.

    Info on Animal Crossing Switch is all I'm hoping for. It's not like it wouldn't be fun to hear about other games, but AC Switch is where its at for me.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Also a disturbing lack of nipples this year.

    Surprised you’re still going after last night Martin
    Kami 6 months ago
    It's positively a lovely time. I don't know why everyone doesn't show their stuff at a reasonable time for everyone!
    mrk142 6 months ago
    It’s usually a shocker opener and closer isn’t it? Or is that wishful thinking?
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    Hello, Martin.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    what do you think they open with? They've already covered Mario Maker and Pokemon separately recently, so I'd be inclined to rule those two out. I think I'd go with Animal Crossing.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    It's almost like this company realised they have a worldwide audience.
    mrk142 6 months ago
    Surprise! Vitality Sensor 2K19. Called it here first.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    @vert1go it's the mash-up the internet has been screaming for.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Of course, they could drop Ecco 99 and we'll all look silly.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Excite Euro Truck Simulator 2. In collaboration with Nintendo.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    Ni No Kuni confirmed for Switch. Presumably it'll be in the Direct, but hopefully won't take up more than a couple of minutes.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Astral Chain was a very pleasant surprise.
    mrk142 6 months ago
    I’m still getting over the Astral Chain reveal so they can just confirm it’s still coming out in August and I won’t care about the rest of the presentation!
    Kami 6 months ago
    Plok HD.

    Things that will never happen that I'd like to see: Excite Truck 2: Down to Truck

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions: We've Fixed the Bullshit Difficulty Spikes Edition #er FE I'd go for.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Let's hope Nintendo is feeling generous this year.
    JonFE 6 months ago
    Yep, his thoughts exactly :)
    Kami 6 months ago
    @JonFE - It's been so long... a new F-Zero is so overdue.
    JonFE 6 months ago
    @Kami, my son was asking for a new F-Zero just the other day.As for me, Eternal Darkness HD would suffice :)
    Kami 6 months ago
    Failing all of that, I'll take a new Wave Race.
    Kami 6 months ago
    All I want is a new F-Zero, Eternal Darkness HD Remake, Mother 3 and maybe Super Mario Strikers. I'm easy to please.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    How about Tokyo Mirage Sessions? I'd completely forgotten about that game. Was just reminded by looking at a list of Wii U games.
    xmassteps 6 months ago
    I'd like Wind Waker HD, probably the only Wii U port I'd get that remains
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Do we think we'll get any surprise "out now" "free" "demo" things?
    vert1go 6 months ago
    The more Wii U ports the better. It'll keep me from needing a Switch anytime soon.
    Kami 6 months ago
    I don't even know how they'd port Xenoblade Chronicles X over. Though a sequel would be the bomb.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    @Kami, definitely Pikmin 3. Fortunately, I already have a wishlist so how about: The Wonderful 101, Yoshi Woolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Paper Mario Colour Splash, and why not Devil's Third?
    vert1go 6 months ago
    It was last still confirmed in development in 2017. So it'll have had 3-4 years.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Pikmin 4 will be the dream reveal. I do wonder if it has landed in development hell...
    vert1go 6 months ago
    Perhaps finally time to see Pikmin 4.
    Kami 6 months ago
    To be fair, I can't think of anything more the Wii U has left to port aside Virtual Console stuff. Maybe Pikmin 3.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Resident Evil Remake will be patched, replacing the zombie sharks with zombie Ecco's.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    I'm 50-50 on whether there will be any Wii U ports. Super Mario 3D World to go with the level editor in Mario Maker 2?
    Kami 6 months ago
    It just occurred to me this is the first E3 in a VERY long time without Reggie. And now I'm sad.
    vert1go 6 months ago
    100 Dolphins are dropped off the coast of Erangel and the last one stand... swimming wins. Playerunknowns Battlewaters feat. Ecco. Nintendo Switch exclusive.
    Kami 6 months ago
    I'd hope Animal Crossing shows up, if only because I never want to see the summoning memes ever again ever.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    @xmassteps, Banjo Nuts and Bolts is criminally under-rated. I'd love to see it on the Switch. Chances? 19%.
    KevInChester 6 months ago
    Battle Royale mode for Animal Crossing I reckon.
    Kami 6 months ago
    Yeah, I know what you were aiming at but every time someone mentions a Game Boy mini I just imagine that freakin' tiny GBA and wonder how any Game Boy "Mini" can be "Mini" after that! XD
    xmassteps 6 months ago
    Now that MS and Nintendo are buddying up, ports of the XB360 versions of Banjo and Perfect Dark would be cool
    Mr.Spo 6 months ago
    Nintendo confirmed no hardware this E3. No revisions, no classic minis. They might not even continue the classic mini line now Switch is properly established on the market.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    @Kami yeah, I've got one of those, but I would like is something the same shape as an original GameBoy, but smaller, with a bigger, back-lit screen, with about 50 games on it a battery which would last for absolute days (because it would require such little power). Would pay £80 easily!
    Kami 6 months ago
    Didn't they have that titchy-tiny GBA?
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    @Yogafire, that's a pretty good list. I would love an offical GameBoy mini.

    WFH today, so this will ease me into the evening, with a cheeky beer at the desk. 🤪Praying for Gameboy Mini, SNES online and some kind of crazy Sega Arcade HD deal - Daytone USA and Virtua Fighter ready to download NOW. 👍And Galaxy HD.And Pilotwings / Waverace HD etc.
    Miyamotosan 6 months ago
    I'm not expecting too many surprises as there's so much Nintendo has already announced for the next six months. I'd love to see Pikmin 4, which is a possibility, and SNES games as part of the online service would be nice. For a super "out there" wish, I'd love any mention of the Mother series.
    el_pollo_diablo 6 months ago
    I predict SNES games to be included as part of a more expensive subscription tier.

    @MrSpo - Yeah, Nintendo's 2019 is looking mega packed from hereon out, it's hard to think of anything else they could squeeze in at this point.
    Mr.Spo 6 months ago
    Big rumour is some kind of Microsoft presence. Everything from Halo coming to Switch to game pass to Banjo Kazooie in Smash has been flying around. I'm expecting Ori and the Blind Forest for Switch and maybe Banjo in Smash.
    Boardwise 6 months ago
    As much as I want a release of Wind Waker HD, I have a feeling that Links Awakening will be it. Still so happy with that remake. I am hoping for a Metroid Prime Trilogy HD set to hold over for MP4.
    Mr.Spo 6 months ago
    Tried to format that as a list. Sorry! But basically Nintendo's next 6 months are already packed. Should be good even without many surprises.
    Mr.Spo 6 months ago
    I mean, it's easy to guess what we're getting:Mario Maker 2 reminderMarvel Ultimate Alliance 3 reminderFire Emblem Three Houses trailerAstral ChainDaemon x Machina release dateZelda: Links Awakening release date (leaked by Amazon Japan)Luigi's Mansion 3Pokemon Sword/ShieldAnimal CrossingWe might get a Bayonetta 3 trailer but that has to be a 2020 game. We won't see anything of Metroid Prime 4, given it was scratched and rebooted. Witcher 3, Mana Collection, Spyro Trilogy, too, probabl

    @cowell By the time they start giving away the SNES stuff the Switch will be about to be replaced and they start all over again with the next console.
    Iwasexclusive 6 months ago
    Also, Nintendo win E3 if they unbox something. There's been a dearth of unboxing videos recently.

    Surely, if Nintendo show in-game footage, they win E3!?! Just show more of the new Zelda game, please.
