We're about 3 weeks away from E3, and Nintendo so far is set to have a jam-packed 2019. With the Switch now on its 3rd year, and the 3DS finally retired, this will be the E3 for Nintendo to show how serious it they are with the Switch and its success. The interesting thing this year, is that Nintendo isn't dedicating the show to one particular game like the past few years, so we'll probably see a lot of stuff coming from them this year. Here's my predictions/wish-list for the Switch at E3 this year.

Smash Bros.

Ultimate's 2nd Challenger Pack is revealed during the Smash Bros. Invitational. Will be out by July.


A lot of rumors have been pointing to this, and I think it'll eventually come true. At Microsoft's Press Conference, Nintendo makes a surprise appearance, announcing Xbox App for Nintendo Switch. Allowing you to access all your Xbox Live data, and stream your Xbox One games to the Switch. That's not all, the original Halo Trilogy and Ori and the Blind Forest are both coming to Nintendo Switch courtesy of THQ Nordic.
