Nintendo Livestream 2018: WATCH Pokemon Let's Go, Fortnite, Splatoon, Smash Bros and more


Nintendo Livestream 2018: WATCH Pokemon Let's Go, Fortnite, Splatoon, Smash Bros and more

Nintendo Livestream 2018 UPDATE 1:

The first game to be shown as part of the Nintendo Direct is a mech shooter with an incredible artstyle. The game sees you wear mechsuits and take on massive enemies - apparently in co-op, too.

Demon X Machina is the title, and it's coming from Marvelous in 2019 for the console.

Nintendo Livestream 2018 UPDATE 2:

The second game teased as part of the show is Xenoblade Chronicles 2 TORNA - The Golden Country (DLC for the game)

It appears to be a massive JRPG with a fantasy/sci-fi vibe and action-based real-time combat.

This will be available in September in 2018.

Nintendo Livestream 2018 UPDATE 3:

The next game teased at E3 was a new version of Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch.

The game consists of many different types of mini games that take place across many regions, and require different control methods to play.

Super Mario Party will release on October 5, 2018

Nintendo Livestream 2018 UPDATE 4:

The next game shown at E3 2018 is Fire Emblem - and it seems to have really gotten much bigger in scale since the 3DS versions of the game.

As well as massive scale battles, it looks like you'll also be able to explore your castles in more detail this time around too.

The video appears to suggest that each hero also has their own unit, which explains the multitude of people that appear on-screen at any one time.

The game will release in Spring 2019. 

It's been a big year for Nintendo since it launched the Nintendo Switch early in 2017.

Since then, the company has been keen to show gamers around the world that it can keep up with the other big publishers and that it can go toe-to-toe with even the likes of Microsoft and Sony.

We're expecting to see more news on the likes of Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, as well as new reveals revolving around Smash Bros. for Switch and Splatoon 2. 

We're also expecting Nintendo to detail more about its incoming online services - and there's even rumours that we'll see a Fortnite shock release on the platform, too.

Nintendo this year confirmed that its pre-show E3 briefing will begin on June 12 - 9am Pacific, 12pm Eastern, 5pm BST, 6pm CEST

You can see the livestream embedded above.

NINTENDO E3 DIRECT - What to expect?

We already know that Nintendo is only going to focus on Nintendo Switch games during its E3 livestream - but that doesn't mean we may not get more 3DS announcements (Amazon actually put up 6 placeholder tiles for 3DS titles just this morning).

Pokemon Let's Go! Eevee and Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu will be large parts of the focus for this stream - if last month's reveals are anything to go by, and we may even get more news on the mainline Pokemon game that's due to drop into the console by the end of next year.

This other Pokemon game (as yet untitled) will be more in the vein of Pokemon games we've been playing over the last few years, and less about Pokemon Go gimmicks. We're excited to hear more.

Smash Bros should get a proper reveal today too: we're expecting more news on the roster, the levels, and the main changes since the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.

We're also expecting to see more information on other titles - possibly Nintendo Switch's first MegaTen game (Shin Megami Tensei V), maybe some more ports, and some Wii U classics making their way over, too.

Don't forget, we're also going to get a Fortnite surprise release. You can read all about that here
