It's here that the Japanese gaming giant will unveil its plans for next six months – and hopefully beyond – and give us a good look at the games we could be playing this holiday season. At last year's E3, Nintendo focused mainly only on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (don't do this again, Nintendo, please), running through a long, long, list of confirmed fighters and stadiums. However, it wasn't exactly a hit with most Nintendo fans, so we expect/hope them to give a broader view of all its E3 2019 games titles this time around. And boy, what a line-up the Nintendo E3 2019 Direct could be. From the new Animal Crossing, to Luigi's Mansion 3, and titles like Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Nintendo could have one of the strongest conferences of the show, which is especially important as its the last in the E3 2019 schedule. If Nintendo does things right, then it will spend a good portion of its E3 2019 Direct talking about the new Animal Crossing Switch game. We've not had any more information about the game since September last year, which only confirmed that the game is indeed coming, will feature Tom Nook and will arrive sometime in 2019. If that's still true, then the game is scheduled to arrive in the next six months, and we don't even know what it's called yet. We assume it'll be the next fully fledged Animal Crossing game, with the last one being Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which was released on 3DS back in 2012. Will we be playing as the new mayor again? Will the gameplay follow the similar tropes as previous series' entries? There are a lot of unanswered questions right now, but hopefully the Nintendo E3 2019 showcase will clear that up. The Pokémon Company, and developer Game Freak, like to keep things to themselves when it comes to big announcements, which is why we're getting a pre-E3 special Pokémon Sword and Shield Direct on June 5. That means we're getting all our Pokémon Switch goodness and fresh information before E3 has even started. That doesn't rule out a quick appearance of the game during the E3 Direct of course, but don't expect these two gen. VIII Pokémon titles to be the main draw. Game Freak will probably focus more on their new RPG, provisionally named Town and also set for a 2019 release, during the E3 show. As far as we know, Luigi's Mansion 3 still has a 2019 release date as well, and we're going to get some more information on this at E3. The last game was a neat 3DS exclusive, so it's exciting to see a sequel is coming to the Switch. From what we know, Luigi's back to his Ghostbusters-esque antics in another spooky mansion, but there are no further details than that as yet. As for Bayonetta 3, we know even less at this point. The game was first announced back at the Game Awards in 2017, and we've had zero information about the game since then. There's a lot of information still to come: gameplay details, release dates, and more. Whether Platinum Games is ready to reveal more about the game is a big question, as I assume the main focus will be on Astral Chain, but even a tiny glimpse at the Nintendo E3 2019 showcase would be greatly appreciated. Originally released over 25 years ago for the Game Boy, it came as quite a surprise that the utterly brilliant Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is getting remade for the Switch. And, it's even coming out this year. That means this remaster is ripe for a major appearance at the Nintendo E3 2019 showcase. We've already had a glorious trailer, which almost frame for frame recreates the original, but any more footage, gameplay, and, of course, a concrete release date would be of interest to most Switch owners. As for whether we'll see anything of Metroid Prime 4 announced at this year's E3, I strongly doubt it. Although the game was officially announced back at E3 2017, earlier this year Nintendo confirmed that the current project was being scrapped and restarted, which means we're probably years away from getting a proper look at the game. Unfortunately, as it's high on many Switch owners' list. Such is the nature of Nintendo's incredibly fast-paced E3 Directs, there's bound to be a few surprises nestled in between the biggest namesalready mentioned. Last year, the big surprise was Fortnite arriving on Switch right then and there after the press conference ended, so expect the Nintendo E3 2019 Direct to have a few of its own. Hopefully. We've already had rumours of a few ports and remasters, including The Witcher 3 (confirmed! - ed.), and the Metroid Prime: Trilogy, which would certainly stave off the hunger for Metroid Prime 4, at least for a while. But there are also rumblings that a sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in the works, but knowing how long Breath of the Wild took to make, this may well not make any kind of appearance at E3 2019. Maybe not even 2020. It's also interesting to note that the rumours of Xbox Game Pass coming to Switch have also not been disproven yet, and with some Xbox Live features already implemented on Switch with the release of Cuphead, this could be an exciting time for the new relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft. This may well be elaborated on during Nintendo's, or Microsoft's, E3 press conference. And then we come to the idea of new Nintendo Switch hardware. Rumours have been flying about no less than two potential new Switch consoles for some months now. The reports suggest that there are two more Switch consoles in the works, the first being a smaller 'mini' version of the original machine, and the second representing a more advanced, almost 'pro' version, offering higher specs, a bigger screen and better graphics. The latest report suggests the mini edition is closer to release than the more advanced alternative, but Nintendo isn't saying anything official about either right now – aside from the fact it definitely won't be announcing hardware at E3 “As a general rule, we’re always working on new hardware and we will announce it when we are able to sell it,” Furukawa told reporters in Osaka back in April. “But we have no plans to announce that at this year’s E3 in June.” Of course, just because Nintendo says its not announcing any new hardware, that doesn't rule out variations of the current console. After all, we've had a Pokémon Let's Go edition, and there's a special Super Mario Maker 2 version that comes complete with stylus. But yeah, best not believe they'll talk about future hardware revisions come June 11. So, this is what we know so far. And yes, hopefully we'll get plenty of surprise announcements, but don't shoot me if the whole Direct is exclusively focused on Luigi's Mansion 3 Random wish list: A new F-Zero, The Wonderful 102 and the long-rumoured Pikmin 4.
