E3 2017: Nintendo Will Support 3DS Beyond 2018

So it was clearly a priority. While Fils-Aime supposedly did not recall the use of that term, he did reiterate Nintendo's stance that Nintendo will provide specifics about legacy content on the Switch at a later date.

Also announced was an as-yet-unnamed Pokemon RPG (scheduled for 2018/19), Metroid Prime 4, new Kirby and Yoshi games, and also Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, which looks hilarious. It comes down to how do we do something more? We need to get our digital environment world class.

"You know, for us, we believe that having hands-on opportunity married to an announcement is really the best way to do it", Fils-Aime explained to IGN.

"So let's be clear".

Reggie is a master of public relations spin, as you're about to see. That is not going to be the only solution.

"It's going to require a phone". "And that's what's going to keep this device vibrant and keep it going well into 2018 and beyond". It's going to require a mobile device and be delivered by an app.

There were also some rumblings as to why the Metroid: Samus Returns wasn't brought to the Switch instead, as the console-handheld hybrid seems to receive nearly all of Nintendo's attention during E3.

Nintendo needed to come out swinging at E3 this year but have failed to hit hard.

Totilo: Do you plan to sell your older games to people? Those were just fantastic on the Wii U, they just lacked the proper audience. It reminds me a little of games where one player has all the fun and the second player does all the shit jobs.

And get your dancing shoes ready because Ubisoft's announced there will be a new Just Dance game coming soon. Surely, they didn't disappoint with their E3 presentation, especially for the Nintendo Switch owners. The console was launched along with "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", which actually outsold the Switch itself in March, and the next month saw the release of a port of "Mario Kart 8".

Ever since Nintendo fully unveiled the Switch back in January, consumers have been asking about the console's online services and functionality.

I would Love an excuse to show them the Switch could be an option. But none of them worked, as a result of additional electronics Nintendo has included inside the Switch's dock. Boo.

Totilo: Can you say that there's a solution coming?

"We are fortunate that we have had a series of phenomenons", Fils-Ami said.

Fils-Aime: I did not. I was there in Hyrule Castle, up in the high [spires] collecting my Korok seeds and I flew down right into the sanctum and immediately thrust into the final battle.
