Super Mario Party Announced For Nintendo Switch; Release Date Confirmed

Super Mario Party Announced For Nintendo Switch; Release Date Confirmed

I expected Nintendo to essentially port the Wii U version of the game. The company is looking to bulk up its offerings at E3.

We now know the Nintendo switch series entry is called Super Smash Bros.

When Nintendo released its Switch console in 2017, it hit the ground running and brought many of its biggest properties to the console within months.

Meanwhile, Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors were on the opposite end of the emotional spectrum. He did us a great service. "My responsibility is to whatever team I play for".

Of its 45-minute E3 2018 Direct, Nintendo spent about 30 of those minutes exclusively discussing Super Smash Bros. A huge chunk of the press conference was dedicated to the newest installment, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which should tell you just how important the upcoming mascot fighter is for the Nintendo Switch. The only new characters announced so far are the Inklings from Splatoon and Ridley from Metroid. After exploding in popularity on PC, the game has branched out to Xbox and PS4. But only the Switch version of the $99.99 Starlink starter pack will include a Fox McCloud pilot figure and his iconic spacecraft Arwing, as well as exclusive Star Fox mission content. And as reported, it was made available right after the Nintendo presentation ended. As you would have seen in the direct, he's now got an appearance that matches his recent adventures in Breath of the Wild. Two new combatants - Inkling from Splatoon and the alien Ridley from the Metroid series - will join the lineup as well when the game launches December 7 exclusively for the Switch.

I don't care how long their announced games will take to release, I just want them announced! The debut trailer showed off the new visual style for combat: planning your moves uses the familiar aerial-view grid, but once your units move in for the attack, the camera zooms in to show 3D battles with full infantry for a look resembling Fire Emblem Warriors. The focus is still on four-player antics, but this time around you can play some games across multiple Switch screens if you've got them handy. This game won't launch until sometime in 2019.

Another small but long-awaited information that Firs-Aime provided is that Octopath Traveler is finally releasing this summer, on July 13th. A few of its mini-games have been revealed through a special amusing trailer, making it a great addition to your Nintendo Switch library after 1-2-Switch.
