It was Ubisoft’s turn to take to the stage, and they essentially hit a lot of the same notes that they usually do. New additions to the Just Dance and Assassin’s Creed franchises, as well as a few looks at some titles announced at last year’s show.

Nintendo surprised the world this morning by launching a Nintendo Direct Mini this morning that came with plenty of fantastic surprises. For DLC, Super Mario Odyssey is getting Luigi’s Balloon World and a few new costumes. Pokken Tournament DX is receiving two new Battle Packs.
For new games, though, Nintendo brought out a few surprises. My personal favorite is the shocking re-release of The World Ends With You: Final Remix. They also announced Mario Tennis Aces, PayDay 2, Dark Souls: Remastered, and more. Check out the Direct Mini above for a full look.
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.

To be completely honest, I wasn’t expecting much from Ubisoft, but they went out and just absolutely blew my expectations away. This was a phenomenal show with some genuinely great moments. Seeing Shigeru Miyamoto on a stage other than Nintendo was jarring in such a pleasant way, and he seemed happy to be there.
The big moment, though… came at the end. After years of work, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is now officially official with a new look and characters. Acting as a prequel to the first game, it’s an open world sci-fi adventure, and it blew my socks off.

There’s been a long-standing rumor that, for some reason, Nintendo and Ubisoft were partnering together on a Mario and Raving Rabbids title. Most, including myself, have found it ridiculous, and didn’t believe it to be true. Well, wasn’t I wrong?
ComicBook.com has gotten their hands on some leaked key art for the title, which shows the gang with a bunch of cosplaying Rabbids shooting at who knows what. The game is expected to be a turn-based combat RPG, and will be officially unveiled at E3 this year, in time for an August release.
