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.
Don’t miss your chance to play #LuigisMansion 3, #PokemonSwordShield & more for the first time @ #E32019! Tune into the #NintendoDirect @ 9amPT on 6/11, followed by #NintendoTreehouseLive throughout the show for more game info & the latest Nintendo news. http://go.redirectingat.com?id=87431X1573192&xs=1&url=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2F0lcDwkjtO6 pic.twitter.com/NxB8ve9wc8— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) June 6, 2019
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.
