E3 2021: Nintendo Direct live report

Here's the big one. Join us live from 5pm!

Happy Nintendo day! Not to get your hopes up too much, but this promises to be a half decent Direct, with news on this year's big releases from Nintendo and room for a surprise or two. Join us from 5pm BST!

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

16:48

Well hello hello hello.

16:48

Who's excited?

16:48

Who's stupidly, almost impossibly excited?

16:48

The same person who's no doubt going to be deeply disappointed in about an hour's time.

16:48

Still!

16:49

There should be at least *something* interesting in this Nintendo Direct.

16:49

*cue 40 minute deep dive into the finer mechanics of Mario Golf: Super Rush*

16:49

Actually you know what, I'd take that over some of the shite some publishers have tried to pull this E3.

16:49

Anyway, I'm hoping we might get slightly more than that.

16:50

Is it reasonable to expect some Breath of the Wild 2 news?

16:51

That would be enough for me.

16:51

Kami says:

that Capcom show was kind of... why bother showing up?

16:51

I'm so glad I decided to skip that one!

16:52

Maybe slightly less reasonable expectations: the heavily rumoured new Donkey Kong game from the Mario Odyssey team; the new game from the Arms team (which'll probably be Mario Kart 9); a new 2D Metroid; the overdue Xenoblade X port.

16:52

Any one of them would make me happy!

16:52

I'm asking for too much already aren't I?

16:54

Whatever happens, I'm sure it'll be slick as anything.

16:54

Oh, and one last thing - wouldn't it be nice to know if there is indeed a revised Switch coming this year?

16:55

I've had mine since launch day and it's falling apart a bit - the fan cover's broken off, it's got all sorts of bumps and bruises.

16:55

It has been well loved.

16:55

Kami says:

... ahem. As I said earlier, I'd like Eternal Darkness. At this rate, I'd take a simple HD Remaster of the game.

16:55

I've never played Eterntal Darkness...

16:55

So I'd jump at the opportunity to play it.

16:56

Under five minutes to go and honestly my heart is racing so much I might just burst.

16:56

(You might have picked up over the past few years that I'm a bit keen on Nintendo stuff sometimes).

16:57

We don't even know much of what Nintendo has planned for the back half of 2021, so there should be at least some news.

16:58

Two minutes to go!

16:59

I'm thinking wistfully of past magical Nintendo E3 moments - the Twilight Princess reveal, the first glimpse at the 3DS.

16:59

Wii Music!

16:59

What will today add to that pantheon?

16:59

minky-kong says:

My body is ready ...for extreme disappointment

17:00

This is probably the more sane approach than downing your second pot of coffee, holding on tight to your Donkey Kong plushie and crying sweet tears of anticipation.

17:00

It's an 18!

17:00

There might be swears and nudes!

17:00

HERE WE GO!!!!!!!

17:01

Koizumi and Takahashi are here to take us through the show - nothing other than the big guns here.

17:02

Koizumi seems to be going for a more agreesive side parting these days - perhaps his lockdown style?

17:02

He still looks handsome as mind.

17:02

And the first game is!!!!

17:02

Well, that's Ganon so it must be Zelda-related - but it doesn't look like Breath of the Wild.

17:02

Oh, it's a new Smash character - and it's Tekken's Kazuya.

17:03

Which makes a lot of sense seeing as Bandai Namco help with so much of the dev of Smash Bros - I sort of wonder why it's taken so long for Tekken to make an appearance.

17:03

tompagenet says:

Starting with a damp squib. Bold approach

17:04

It's not quite the scene setter I imagined...

17:04

Indeed, it's almost troll-like opening up with Ganon when the expectations are set so high.

17:04

But you know what, I'll take it.

17:04

And I'll take any opportunity to see Sakurai do his thing.

17:04

What a man! What a legacy!

17:04

What a very neat and tidy desk.

17:05

Maybe this will be a 40 minute deep dive into Kazuya in Smash tho...

17:05

We are getting reports in that that's a ponytail palm he has as well.

17:06

It looks a little undernourished to me, but I'm new to this houseplant thing so I won't be casting aspersions.

17:07

I'd trust Sakurai with my asparagus fern any day.

17:07

And that's Smash, which makes a fairly brief appearance before we move on to Life is Strange - like, all of it - coming to Switch.

17:07

The remastered collection of the original is coming later this year, with the new True Colours coming in October.

17:08

Other surprising third party games! Eidos Montreal's recently revealed Guardians of the Galaxy is also coming to Switch.

17:08

As is Worms Rumble!

17:08

Yes, I know there's a lot of Worms about - but something about this one tickles my fancy.

17:09

Guardians of the Galaxy, by the way, looks to be a Cloud Version for Switch - as with the likes of Hitman 3.

17:09

Two Point Campus also gets confirmed for an apperance on Switch for 2022.

17:09

And now onto a proper reveal - it's the new Monkey Ball.

17:10

And more importantly - it's the return of Monkey Target proper.

17:10

(though to be perfectly honest, I'd just take a proper re-release of the original Monkey Ball. Oh, and a new Joy-Con with the same octagonal joystick of the GameCube. How else to get that 0.1 string?)

17:10

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is coming October 5th.

17:11

Oh, I wasn't paying attention.

17:11

This is a remake of Deluxe, so it's pretty much asll I wanted.

17:11

Still want that octopad Joy-Con, mind.

17:11

And now something something Mario Party.

17:12

I know so little about Mario Party Im not even sure if this is a new one or not.

17:12

It's out in October anyway.

17:12

But now! It's a new Metroid.

17:12

With confirmation that development on Metroid Prime 4 carries on apace.

17:12

This is Metroid 5.

17:13

Or Metroid Dread, as it was sometimes known.

17:14

I am beyond excited for this.

17:14

I wonder whether it's MercurySteam again, as with Samus Returns?

17:15

Anyway, after literally decades waiting, Metroid Dread comes out in October.

17:15

October 8th, to be precise.

17:15

Kami says:

Oh wow, August!

17:15

YOU READ THE DATE THE WRONG WAY ROUND!

17:15

(I do that all the time).

17:16

Now the real big guns - Just Dance 2022!

17:16

Ha, wow - and now a new Cruisin'.

17:16

Cruisin' Blast is coming this Autumn.

17:17

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot makes a belated appearance on Switch later this year.

17:18

Now the remaining 20 minutes of the show will be taken up with a deep dive on Mario Golf.

17:18

and I'm okay with that.

17:18

neddie says:

Those metroid graphics reminded me of Mighty No.9 for some reason.

17:18

I quite liked the slight Dreamcast aesthetic of Mighty No. 9!

17:18

As ever, I have the worst taste in video games.

17:19

And another update on an imminent game - Monster Hunter Stories 2, which is also weeks away.

17:19

A quick PSA also while this plays - don't watch the Monster Hunter movie which finally comes out in the UK this week.

17:19

It's absolutely dreadful.

17:20

Tiel says:

New advance wars, Mario Kart 9, Exclusive new rayman 2d game??Not sure what can save this for me!

17:20

A new WarioWare?

17:21

themightyant says:

Consider your taste in games Martin should we take it as a recommendation 😂

17:21

That is entirely fair.

17:21

It's been a while since a proper WarioWare, right? The Wii U one seemed like a curious offshoot.

17:21

This one introduces proper two player.

17:21

WarioWare Get It Together comes September.

17:22

Here's Koizumi taking over the reins!

17:22

Shin Megami Tensei 5, this'll be.

17:23

Moody, slightly impenetrable RPG lols for those of you who like things a bit darker.

17:24

I've got SMT3 sitting on my Switch atm, alongside the desire to bone up on the series.

17:24

It's just sometimes hard to get in the mood for a gloomy 80 hour JRPG, so I haven't started yet. Sorry!

17:25

Vlad27145 says:

Martin was talking about Dreamcast aesthetic, this definitely fits the bill.Definitely wanna play it though!

17:26

It does! It looks very much in keeping with Atlus stuff from the turn of the century, which I love.

17:26

It's most certainly a mood.

17:27

A Danganronpa collection next, which expands upon the head-twisting visual novel series. It's coming to Swich latert this year as a compilation - and all four games within will also be avaialble seperately.

17:28

And one of the last Wii U games we haven't seen on Switch yet! Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water.

17:28

NEW GAMES!

17:29

Doom Eternal's campaign expansion will be available later today.

17:29

Tony Hawks remaster, which we knew plenty about, is also due soon - the 25th of this month to be precise.

17:30

Ah, Strange Brigade is coming out today.

17:30

I can't say I was a huge fan of this when it originally came out.

17:30

Anyway, onwards to the Mario + Rabbids game Ubi lifted the lid on on Saturday.

17:30

Well, Nintendo lifted the lid on it slightly before then, but let's not get bogged down in details.

17:31

Well, how about this.

17:32

It's a remake of Advance Wars!

17:32

And a remake of the second one!

17:32

That'll do nicely - it's out on December 3rd.

17:32

And finally!

17:33

A Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity expansion?

17:33

The trolling is incredibly strong with this Direct.

17:33

tompagenet says:

Oh come the fuck on

17:33

As someone who liked the base game - I echo your sentiments.

17:34

Ah, it's a Zelda section - there's hope yet everyone!

17:34

First an update on Skyward Sword HD, which is due next month.

17:34

neddie says:

Surely they'll finish with Breath of the Wild 2?

17:35

There's another five minutes left. So I really hope so.

17:35

(It'll just be the remakes of the Capcom GameBoy games lol).

17:36

Well, before that even here's a special Game & Watch that comes with the first two NES Zelda games plus Link's Awakening.

17:36

Well, here we go.

17:37

Breath of the Wild 2.

17:37

Excuse me while I go silent and stare wistfully at this.

17:38

Skydiving, Skyward Sword style, Talus with entire enemy camps on their back, whole landmasses that ascent into the sky.

17:38

And it's not coming out this year.

17:38

Well, that's that.

17:39

Nothing on the new Switch - which may well be postponed to next year at this point to avoid supply issues.

17:39

And I've got to say, a fairly underwhelming showing.

17:39

Albeit understandably so given the impact of Covid on developers.

17:40

Still, a new Advance Wars!

17:40

Or a remake of the first two, at least.

17:40

And we do get a new Metroid - that's two bits of very welcome news.

17:41

And that was that - and I believe that is E3 2021 pretty much done and dusted.

17:41

As expected it was a slight year for big new announces.

17:41

But I'm still happy with the selection of games we've got to take us through to the end of the year. It's not as if there aren't enough games around to play.

17:44

Thank you, as ever, for joining us here!

17:44

It's been... interesting?

17:45

There is a Treehouse coming later which should give us some more details on these games (I'm certainly curious to see if it is Intelligent Systems on those Advance Wars remakes - something about the way they look makes me suspect not).

17:45

Kami says:

Cheers Martin, do this again when Sony has its event in what, a month or two?

I look forward to it - always lovely to see you here!

17:45

We'll have news from the Treehouse event as it happens, but for now I'm signing off.

17:45

And possibly pouring myself a big gin and tonic.

17:46

Thank you and farewell!

I was expecting Zelda in 2022, but more like March or May. From the looks of this, I don't think it'll be out till next Christmas.Still: Advance Wars!

    Hm. Not much for me :/ Mario Golf in 2 weeks, Metroid: Dread in October.Do you remember the time when there were always some major titles to look forward to? Yeah that was when Nintendo had to support two systems. I don't get it either.
    themightyant 5 months ago
    @electrolite same. PLENTY to play. Off to rewatch that Zelda teaser trailers thanks Martin and happy gaming everyone
    Kami 5 months ago
    I'm hoping to be fully moved by then. See y'all the next live show!
    Vlad27145 5 months ago
    I would've been BEYOND surprised if they had a Switch Pro to show. I'd have been flabbergasted if it came even remotely close to what people are expecting. I've seen talk of 4K capabilities and 10h+ battery life... To these people I say: physics are a thing, not happening!
    themightyant 5 months ago
    All in all pretty happy. Deliberately lowered expectations and they exceeded them with - Metroid 5 2021 - Advance Wars 2021- Botw 2 news 2022 (hopefully)+ skyward sword (which we knew about)
    electrolite 5 months ago
    Enjoyed both MS and Nintendo shows. Plenty for me to play in the future.
    tompagenet 5 months ago
    Whisper it: BOTW is a good game, but it's not much of a Zelda game. And I'm not very excited for BOTW2.

    It was alright, we've seen worse this E3.

    @Vlad27145Well the last one was a Wii U game really, so they’ve really made zero effort
    Kami 5 months ago
    I have said a lot that Nintendo would wait until the Switch's 5th anniversary before pushing new hardware and I am sticking to that.
    themightyant 5 months ago
    @PeteFlash it definitely looked like an upgrade to Botw. You’ve likely just been spoilers on other systems since. I thought it looked fire
    Vlad27145 5 months ago
    @PeteFlash It's still on the Switch, mate, what did you expect?
    themightyant 5 months ago
    Bowser said he was smiling throughout Yes that what happens when you are the one trolling 😂😂😂Mission succesful Nintendo
    tompagenet 5 months ago
    Do feel all the crap about a Switch Pro is getting old now. Always predicted, never realised. And that really was mostly dross. So few truly new games.
    PeteFlash 5 months ago
    Did that Zelda showreel not look really underwhelming to others? After 5 years it looks like we get a BotW expansion pack passed off as a new game.
    lukazor 5 months ago
    No more Pokemon, no Bayo3, no MP4. Nintendo actual trolls, that was pretty awful IMO
    Kami 5 months ago
    Wouldn't be shocked we see Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 to shift the Switch Pro.
    Vlad27145 5 months ago
    I'll give this presentation the special Eurogamer 8/10.6 for the content and two bonus points for the expert trolling.Might be that I had 0 expectations, but I was entertained.
    themightyant 5 months ago
    They are the ultimate trolls. Open with ganon but it’s not Zelda.Get to the end say last segmentOpen with hyrule warriors dlcSay there are 2 things left to show2nd thing is a Zelda game and watch TROLLS
    Kami 5 months ago
    I also suspect Nintendo is delaying a few things for the new Switch system.

    Guess the big guns are next year when development will be steadier and hopefully a new switch to go with Zelda.

    They really really need Glados to voice those creatures.

    It's a bold move to show no Metroid Prime footage, then start your new Metroid with first person cinematics.

    No Martin, actually is Metroid Dread.

    "The filler is strong with this intro"You know, you're not wrong, but despite not being much of a Nintendo guy (... at all, more of a Sony and PC fellow) this is the leaest boring conference I've seen this E3. Especially now that they're showing Metroid Prime!

    Oh shit, brace!

    Mario party rehash. Now with added lag!

    @Daeltaja agreed as crazy as Nintendo are I don’t think they’d dare tease with that and show nothing Zelda related. Hopefully it’s not just Skyward Sword (which I love)

    Life is Strange on Switch, can't fault them for that.

    Moveset is definitely faithful to Tekken, can't fault them for that
    Kami 5 months ago
    Also not exactly the Tekken character I was expecting. Jin would be my first bet, followed by Heihachi...

    My prediction; we'll see the new Switch in October. They'll release it March 2022, around the 5th Anniversary, and after the Switch has hit 100 million sales.
    Zepthire 5 months ago
    My main hope is for a Metroid Prime trilogy release for Switch. A bit of NMH3 would be nice and maybe a tease for the next Smash character.

    Frustratingly Nintendo made the state that it's exclusively a software thing... so I guess no Switch Pro.

    Show me on the doll where the Ethernet Port touched you, Nintendo.
    neddie 5 months ago
    It's probably 40 minutes of obscure Smash Brothers stuff though.
    Kami 5 months ago
    I have a soft spot for Nintendo as well Martin. Though I equally give them a lot of shit too. Seriously... what does Nintendo have against Ethernet Ports, exactly?
    utherp 5 months ago
    Capcom's E3 would have been better if they announced... Baiten Kaitos remaster collection. If we are jumping on the GC nostalgia train.

    ... ahem. As I said earlier, I'd like Eternal Darkness. At this rate, I'd take a simple HD Remaster of the game.

    Nothing we didn't already know. Just one thing; Resi Village DLC in the works. Which tbh, I expected and I'm calling it now involves Lady Dimitrescu, because the Internet will always be thirsty for big mommy vampire boobs.

    that Capcom show was kind of... why bother showing up?
    Kami 5 months ago
    Neddie; I'd ask for something more reasonable. Like Martin kicking down my door and whisking me away on the back of a Rainbow Robot Unicorn or something.
