Nintendo ended the barrage of E3 keynotes by doing the same thing every other company did this year: playing it safe. A few new game announcements were on the docket, but the star of the show here was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which hits stores on December 7th, of this year.
Many were expecting Nintendo to bring out the big guns this year, but their focus was only the biggest gun, which could go either way. Hit the jump to find out what Nintendo had to show off at E3 this year.
This year’s Nintendo Holiday Experience will set up shop in 17 U.S. malls, giving players the opportunity to play Nintendo 3DS & Switch games from November 11th to December 17th. It will also give My Nintendo members the opportunity to share their QR Code and receive a Platinum Point card that could give them 100, 300, or 500 Platinum Points to spend on digital rewards at the My Nintendo store.

Nintendo didn’t have a whole lot to say this year. With Nintendo Switch sales continuing to be the hottest ticket in the industry, right now, all they had to do was keep the hype train rolling their innovative console and its games.
The surprises were good here, albeit not very full, but there were a few moments that stood out. While there was no trailer, confirmation of a core RPG Pokemon title for the Nintendo Switch has been a fever dream for years on home consoles.
