They're surely going to arrive sooner rather than later, but this would've been the ideal time to whip fans into a frenzy and win E3 right out of the gate, especially as Nintendo's competition didn't exactly have mind-blowing conferences this year.

There was so much packed into that short little stream, that it's actually hard to unpack it all.

Nintendo/The Pokémon CompanyA new "Pokemon" game for the Nintendo Switch is in the works. Some people have wondered if the game could potentailly make its way to Nintendo Switch so they can bring the racing game on the go. So, anyone who wants to reserve a spot in line for things like Metroid Prime 4, here's an opportunity to do so.

Ambulances and fire trucks filled the streets around the building, which is located in a diverse, working class area of London. The Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson took to Twitter to urge those living nearby to help Grenfell Tower residents.

At any other time, this would have been the biggest announcement from the show, but Nintendo managed to top it. Yoshiaki Koizumi, a producer on the title, suggested that the game will utilize both multiplayer and network features, as they're both integral to the appeal of the Switch. We know nothing about the game - Nintendo showed nothing but a logo during the company's E3 presentation today - but it's coming to Switch, even if we might not see it for a very long time. They don't have a specific release date yet, but they will arrive soon.

During the event, Nintendo said fans will have to wait "for a year or more" to get their hands on the new game.

Numerous games Nintendo has planned will revive classic franchises like Pokémon and Metroid. Presumably a direct follow-up to the original Xenoblade Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is sporting a brand new, stylized look that appears better suited to the Switch's hardware.
