Nintendo reveals 'Super Mario Party,' 'Fire Emblem,' 'Fortnite' for the Switch

From the new trailer, it seems that Super Mario Party has done away with the odd everyone-travels-together-in-a-car premise and brought the game back to its individual dice-rolling roots.

Nintendo did announce other games, we swear. However, the Switch still has the classic Nintendo problem of a shallow game catalog.

E3 2018 is here and that means all the big companies are poised to reveal a bunch of exciting stuff.

Nintendo also revealed Super Smash Bros Ultimate will include every character to have appeared in prior versions. Ultimate has been tweaked or updated to make them more viable or balanced. Here are all the major new Switch titles. Super Smash Bros. sucks the air out of the room for all other titles, and with next-to-nothing known about the upcoming Switch entry in the beloved series, expect this to be Nintendo's E3 2018 flagship.

Even though you've already seen the videos for Super Smash Bros.

The release date is set for October 5, 2018.

It also introduced more original games, based on the same characters that have been gracing its consoles for over 30 years. Even more exciting, is the fact that both titles will be available to download later today through the Nintendo Store.

The upcoming mech combat game Daemon X Machina won't launch until 2019, but it looks unbelievable.

While Ridley is a powerhouse that can toss players around the stage like it's nothing, Inkling is a tactician's dream as you carefully manage your inkbar by using specials and periodically refilling by pressing shield and "B". Elsewhere, Super Mario Party looks like it will pack in the usual range of button-mashing, frantic motion controls and clever challenges, all wrapped up in a suitably cutesy package. For example, Ryu now always faces his opponents in one-on-one battles, and some Fire Emblem characters have received new voices. Ridley, Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl all join the roster for the first time. It'll be coming sometime in 2019.

Another small but long-awaited information that Firs-Aime provided is that Octopath Traveler is finally releasing this summer, on July 13th. This retro-style 3D RPG has been available as a demo since last summer, but a new demo with near-final gameplay will come later this month. For anyone still on the fence about an RPG with eight main characters to choose from, you can try out a demo starting July 14, which will carry over save data should you decide to purchase the full game.
