With Microsoft and Sony showing off their offerings in the past two days, Nintendo wrapped up the series of press conferences today announcing their lineup for the coming year.
Here are the highlights of the Nintendo Direct at E3 this year.
The popular Soccer-meets-demotion derby game, Rocket League will be making its debut on the Switch later this year. While the game will include all the modes and features available on other platforms, the Switch version will also feature special content. Cross-platform capabilities were also announced but details on how they would work are rather slim.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles will be getting a sequel during this year’s holiday season. Featuring a new group of heroes, the game is a follow-up to the role-playing game originally available on the Wii.
Kirby and his insatiable appetite will be heading to the Switch next year.
The Pokemon Company announced that they are working on a yet-to-be-named Pokemon RPG for the Switch.

Yoshi is heading to the Switch with yet another cute light-hearted platforming adventure game.
