E3 2018: 5 Ups & 3 Downs From Nintendo's Direct

It's almost time

After confirming the game's title and full roster list, Nintendo went into a deep dive of some of the many changes coming to the series with this installment.

As for newcomers, we saw the moveset of the Inklings for the first time. The games manage to be light-hearted while still rewarding skilled play. Between the likes of Super Smash Bros., a slew of new Pokemon titles and, at long last, a port of Fortnite, Switch owners certainly won't be short of new entries in their favorite franchises.

A new trailer reveals "Super Mario Party" is coming to the Nintendo Switch, unveiled during Nintendo Direct on Tuesday.

Nintendo will continue compatibility with GameCube controllers for the new installment, though the company also teased a picture of a new version of the controller during the Direct. If Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was anything to go by, this is going to take the portability of the franchise above and beyond what's expected. And mostly with its own games.

Stage selection echoes the character selection screen in that the options for selectable characters easily hovered close to two dozen.

That means fan favorites such as Metal Gear Solid's Snake and Ice Climbers will be playable right alongside fighters with flawless attendance such as Mario, Donkey Kong and Fox McCloud. Ultimate, which features so many playable characters, new moves, and tweaks to existing fighting controls that Nintendo needed 25 minutes just to cover the bare minimum.

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". That means the tough-to-master-but-highly-effective meteor smashes are tougher to land but they are significantly more effective. Keep it locked to Trusted Reviews to stay updated! It'll be out in 2019 and focus on mechs smashing the crap out of each other.

Along with Smash Bros, the games will be available for E3 attendees to play at the show. Overcooked 2 launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on 7th August 2018, priced $29.99/£19.99/€24.99, with pre-orders bagging the "Too Many Cooks DLC" with bonus chefs Alien, Walrus, Unicorn, Monkey and Calico Cat.

From what we saw there was a tricycle racing game, an athletics game, a puzzle solving one, and much more.
