Watch the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 Live Stream!

Some game concepts that'll be familiar to everyone who's played Mario Party games in the past were shown on-screen as well as some new game designs for the upcoming party game.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate headlined a content-packed Nintendo Direct presentation ahead of this year's E3. Nintendo says that the show will focus on Switch releases for 2018, but we might see some 2019 titles and 3DS games as well. The game also introduces all-new ways to play, including Joy-Con™ controller enabled minigames, and new modes to enjoy with family and friends. Once the field is set, the game begins, and players can move their characters between both Switches like it was one large screen. Some, but not all, of Super Mario Party's mini-games take advantage of this feature. There's also the possibility that more details will be offered about Metroid Prime 4 and the new Yoshi game, which were just teased past year, as well as the recently announced Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee games.
