E3 2017 Tuesday Recap

by Daniel Tack on Jun 13, 2017 at 06:48 PM

Today was the final day of the major E3 briefings, with Nintendo's spotlight capping off a long weekend of news, reveals, trailers, demos, and games. Some we won't see for over a year, others are right around the corner. Here's everything you need to catch up on all the news that happened today, from trailers to major announcements.

The Nintendo showcase had some expected titles, like Super Mario Odyssey, new content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and other fan favorites like Kirby and Yoshi.

But there were also a few major surprises. Perhaps the biggest is that the next core Pokemon game is in development, and it's for the Switch. That's a huge deal. Or maybe the biggest surprise that Metroid Prime 4 is in development. Both of these titles are likely quite far off - we'll probably end up seeing them at another E3 before they're available - but it's still nice to know they're in the works. After the showcase, Nintendo also revealed that the developers behind Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are remaking Metroid II for the 3DS. So we have a 2D Metroid on the way too!

Our team out at the show has been busy conducting interviews and getting hands-on time with the new titles, so be sure to check out many of our available features today as well!

Below you can check out all the craziness to come out of E3 today. Miss Monday? Catch that here. And if you're still catching up on the wild weekend, you can check all that info out here.
