We already knew about most of the games coming to Switch in 2017, but for its Spotlight presentation at E 3 2017 Quite possibly the most exciting announcement of all, Nintendo is developing a fourth Metroid Prime game for the Switch. Like Kirby, it won’t be out until 2018 (at the earliest, I assume).

Nintendo choose to play it safe with this year’s E3 keynote, focusing more on soon to be released titles that people will actually be able to play in the coming months like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, and Pokémon: Let’s Go! rather than offering updates on no-shows announced last year like Metroid Prime 4. If you missed the presentation, though, here’s everything you’ll need to catch up.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have ever Smash fighter ever

The obvious star of the show during Nintendo’s E3 showcase is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which will feature a massive roster of over 60 fighters comprising every single Smash Bros. character to ever appear in the series, including all the DLC characters from Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS. It’s out on December 7th.

Every Super Smash Bros. character ever will be playable on the Switch

  Every Super Smash Bros. character ever will be playable on the Switch You may know your way around Super Smash Bros. Brawl — but are you ready for Super Smash Bros. all? The upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Switch, Super Smash Bros.Ultimate, will feature literally every fighter that’s ever been playable in any incarnation of the popular franchise, game director Masahiro Sakurai announced at E3 today. That’s more than 60 characters in all, including ones who haven’t shown up in the franchise for over a decade, like Metal Gear Solid’s Snake and Pokémon’s Pichu. The lineup also features characters previously available as third-party DLC on the Wii U and 3DS, like Bayonetta and Ryu. Even Ridley, the much-discussed but seldom-seen Metroid series antagonist, will be making an appearance. Each of the characters will be included in the base game, and Nintendo has said it will make the characters easier to unlock than in past games, to give gamers a feeling of being constantly rewarded for playing. Moreover, every character has been tweaked or updated for the new game, some with more minor variations and others with overhauled looks gamers will discover as they play. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released Dec. 7.

Gamecube controllers will work with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Melee fans, breathe a sigh of relief: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will support the iconic GameCube controller when it comes out in December. You’ll need a USB adapter — same as the Wii U — which means it won’t work in portable or tabletop mode, but for Smash purists, there’s no other way to play.

Ridley is finally coming to Smash

Ridley — the giant, draconic boss from the Metroid series — has been a long running meme among Smash Bros. fans, who have spent years demanding that series head Masahiro Sakurai put him in the game. Today, that dream comes true: Ridley (along with the already teased Inklings) is joining the roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Mario Tennis Aces still leaves us wanting Wii Sports on Switch .
With the launch of Mario Tennis Aces, people who adore Nintendo’s sports franchise have a lot to be happy about. It is, by and large, every bit as good as the classic Mario Tennis games. What it is not, though, is Wii Sports on Switch. Specifically Wii Tennis. Much of the enormous success of the Wii is due to Wii Tennis. It was just so approachable and intuitive: The ball bounced to you, you swung, and it felt like you were making direct contact with said ball. Anyone from toddlers to grandparents could pick it up and have a fun time. The magic was not only tied to the motion controls, but also the fact that your swing felt directly tied to the swing of the character in the game, creating a one-to-one connection. Without needing to worry about the movement of your character, all you had to focus on was making a proper swing. But Mario Tennis Aces, like most modern tennis games, allows for direct control over the character’s movement. It also allows for special charged-up shots and a variety of drop shots, lobs and slices. What all this adds is depth — something that goes beyond the back-and-forth rallies of Wii Tennis. Despite the kid-friendly appearance, there’s a surprisingly complex sports game here. What it doesn’t allow for, sadly, is the flip-side: the instant approachability of Wii Tennis. Mario Tennis Aces attempts to mimic Wii Tennis with the new “Swing Mode.
