E3 Day 4: Nintendo Reveals

E3’s final day had a lot to show, for both hardcore and casual gamers alike. Here are some of the biggest titles announced from day four of E3.


Kicking things off, Nintendo showed off a trailer for a brand new DLC character for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken series will be joining the battle sometime after the character showcase on June 28th.

Nintendo also announced an upcoming Mario spinoff game, Mario Party Superstars. The game essentially functions as a “greatest hits” album for the rest of the series, collecting ten of the most popular maps from the rest of the series in one big, modern-gen package.


Mario Party Superstars is set to release on October 29th, 2021.

Nintendo followed this announcement with more reassurance from Nintendo that Metroid Prime 4 is still in development. Nintendo fans have been reassured that the game is in development since it was revealed in 2017, as no release date or trailer has been shown since then. However, this time, Nintendo showed us a new Metroid game in its place.

Metroid Dread is the fifth game in the classic Metroid series, taking place right after the cliffhanger Metroid Fusion left fans hanging on in 2002. The game is being made by MercurySteam, the same developers that made the well received Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS back in 2017. The game is said to have a darker story and will feature Samus exploring a new planet. Metroid: Dread is set to release on October 8th, 2021.

Nintendo then went on to announce the next entry in the award winning Danganronpa series, Danganronpa Decadence. The game is the series’ first experience on the Nintendo Switch, and it has the first three Danganronpa games bundled together in one package, as well as a new game, Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp.

While Danganronpa is most well known for being a gruesome, dark murder mystery visual novel game, the new spinoff title looks to be more lighthearted and fun, focusing on the expansive cast of characters and a fun turn based strategy system rather then the twisted world they live in. Danganronpa Decadence is releasing only on Nintendo Switch sometime in 2021.

Finally, Nintedo showed off footage of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the award winning open-world game Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game seems to take place in a fantastical world full of floating islands and new technological gadgets, like a robot arm that Link now wields, first seen in the initial concept art for Breath of the Wild 1.


Nintendo also demonstrated some of Link’s new abilities, like his power to rewind time and a flamethrower that he uses to attack enemies. While no release date was given, Nintendo did say that they’re “trying to get the game out by 2022.”

That’s it for this year’s E3. Whether you’re a fan of Western or Japanese games, this convention had a little something for everybody.
