Pokemon, Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, and More Will Be Playable at E3 2019

If you're going to E3, you can romp with Pokemon, visit a spooky mansion, and dream with a big fish.

Nintendo's days of E3 press conferences are long behind it, but that doesn't mean it can't offer you a good time on the show floor. If you're lucky enough to attend E3 2019, you can go hands-on with some of the Switch's most anticipated titles, including Pokemon Sword and Shield, Luigi's Mansion 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake.

Nintendo posted a tweet listing its playable E3 2019 titles earlier today. Pokemon Sword and Shield will no doubt prove to be a huge draw, especially after yesterday's Pokemon Direct showed off cool new features like "Dynamaxing." I want to know what it's like to control a kaiju-sized Grookey.

I expect the Switch remake of Link's Awakening will also garner a big queue. Link's Awakening originally came out for the Game Boy, and it went on to become a big favorite for many Zelda fans. Its dungeon designs are excellent, and its simple graphics are well-suited for its extremely limited color palette.

Intriguingly, Nintendo's tweet promises these games "and more!" on the show floor. It's a tantalizing addendum, especially since there's a great chance we'll see the long-awaited Switch version of Animal Crossing this year.

All shall be revealed soon: You just need to be patient for a little longer. Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation is on June 11 at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET. We'll publish everything that's worth knowing about Nintendo's offerings. If you need general information about who's showing what, and when, check out our E3 2019 guide.
