Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Official Nintendo E3 2019 Thread!

So most characters are basically "villagers" and you decide with the help of your instructions to see which class you want them to fit into. Bataillons can level up on their own. The monastery school looks pretty big which is fine since it's going to be the hub world for a part of the game.
Map design seems more open than the ones in SoV which is understandable because it was a 1/1 remake,lol.

It's just confirming what I already thought, I'm sold.

E3 2019 was without a doubt, the best direct from Nintendo, even with the Capcom stuff, the pacing was amazing and it was just great announcement or great trailer of already announced stuff one after another.

A great deal of surprises and a good balance of current year games with next year games.

My highlight was probably how Luigi's Mansion 3 is shaping up to be the perfect game of the franchise.

Also, Sakurai, add Travis to Smash Bros. already, what else does the man and Suda need to do at this point to get his spot.

Imo 2014 was way better. Nintendo E3 2014 is my favorite e3 show.

If we're going into this, I think I'd put 2017 and 2019 on equal footing and 2014 presentation in 3rd place. It oozed with charm and funny sketches but the games shown in the two other presentations were far superior imo.

I don't know dude. Splatoon, Smash, first Zelda BOTW footage, Bayonetta 2, Xenoblad Chronicles X,Yoshi wolly world, captain toad,  and Mario Maker. Like yeah they had skits but they also brought the heavy hitters. It was a really good mix of both and very enjoyable to watch.

Yeah, 2014 was just ridiculously stacked.  It was just one game after another.  Smash->Amiibo->Yoshi->Captain Toad->Breath of the Wild->Pokemon->Bayonetta->Hyrule Warriors->Kirby->Xenoblade Chronicles X->Mario Maker->Splatoon->Palutena Smash reveal

Add the Robot Chicken bits, the animation for Palutena's reveal, Reggie vs. Iwata, and the pretty well-done developer bits to introduce these games, and there just wasn't a second's worth of fat to be found.

Fair enough ... just goes to show how these 3 shows in particular had such quality standards too. I'm glad we actually argue cuz this means Nintendo can still output some incredible shows :D

I still hold E314 and 17 in high esteem, just that this year managed to floor me a lot more than the others. All 3 had a lot of quality games to show, but the moments of pure joy and shock came more this year for me.

14 had Captain Toad, Star Fox and the return of the Canvas Curse style of gameplay for Kirby.

17 had my favorite trailer of all time with Odyssey, Star Allies and Metroid.

And this year man, Luigi's Mansion 3 oozing with charm, No More Heroes 3, the sequel of BotW, quality newcomers for Smash Bros. after my disappointment with Joker, Panzer Dragoon out of nowhere.

Just overall feel that the high highs of this year surpass in quantity the highs of the other years for me.



Man, Nintendo wasn't messing around cranking out game annoucements at their Direct. They're gonna make me broke :/.

I was lukewarm about their showing at first but in hindsight they really did showcase quite a bit, with a nice mix of new announcements (or at least finally showing footage of stuff teased at), and more in depth footage of stuff already announced.

Especially after this showing, Switch's library just looks completely stacked. Only area it's still semi-lacking is the brand new, flashy AAA stuff (especially from 3rd parties), but I just plain don't put as much stock in most of these types of games as others. 

Switch is still largely a port/indie machine but I'm fine with that, as I love indies, and I'm usually slow with catching up to modern releases, hell many of the ports/remasters coming to Switch I STILL haven't played or have barely touched. I'm still playing through Diablo III for the first time, that's how far behind I am on many of these games lol. 

After the show, game's I'm definitely getting:

Mario Maker 2
Zelda: Link's Awakening
Astral Chain
Pokemon Sword/Shield
Trial Of Mana (Nintendo's pleasant surprise of the show for me. Secret of Mana is still one of my favorite RPGs and I've barely played the Japan-only sequel)
Metroid Prime 4 (should be "probably" since I know nothing about it but let's be honest, of course I'll get it :P)
Zelda BotW 2

Maybes:

My Friend Pedro
Wolfenstein:Young Blood
Bloodstained
Gods And Monsters (Unsure of XB One vs Switch)
DQXI
Luigi's Mansion 3
Animal Crossing
RE5

And hell, there's still probably 7 or 8 games that have already been out for Switch that I've just been holding off picking up..

I really love the Nintendo Treehouse formula. It has sold me on Astral Chain 100% while just the trailers left me hesistating.



Signature goes here!

In true presentation fashion the person playing is getting destroyed.

Doesn't that mean the game's just hard?



Some days I just blow up.

I don't know how you could possibly not have been sold on the trailers already, but hey, at least you're on board now. Also, it's good to know that the gameplay seems very good - I don't wanna watch it because I'm sold on the game already, so I just wanna keep myself in the dark about it as much as possible.
