In the old tradition, Nintendo announced its new products at the E3 2019 again in a direct livestream. New trailers for upcoming games for the Nintendo Switch lined up in the video and there were a few sensations too! Here are the highlights at a glance.
"Luigi's Mansion 3"
Unluckily Luigi probably wants to just have his peace, but always gets the nastiest jobs – in "Luigis Mansion 3", for example, the cleaning service in a haunted hotel. A new video focuses on the helpful abilities of the Ghost Vacuum Cleaner with which the frightening plumber goes on a ghost hunt. Also good to know: "Luigis Mansion 3" comes with couch co-op and an online challenge mode, in which you clean up with up to three comrades. The release is due this year – but when exactly, we still do not know.

"The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake"

"Trials of Mana"
The SNES classic "Secret of Mana" has already received a remake, next year is "Trials of Mana" turn.

"Contra: Rogue Corps"
Holy Geballer after old school – that's what "Contra" stands for. "Contra Rogue Corps" is about to follow in the footsteps of the run-and-gun classic.

"Pokémon Sword & Shield"
Of course, "Pokémon Sword & Shield" also appears on Nintendo Direct – after all, the Games are perhaps the largest switch release of the year. However, with the news value of the E3 trailer hapert's. Well, at the E3 2019 both are already playable as a demo. That brings us back home but not so much. After all, we still learn that the Pokéball accessory for the switch in some way with the games will be usable – but how exactly, reveals Nintendo not synonymous.
- Release: November 15, 2019

"Empire of Sin"
Paradox Interactive is known for tactical games with a historical core.

"Cadence of Hyrule"

Banjo Kazooie in Smash
With this announcement, Nintendo was definitely having fun! Fans have long been looking for a performance by Banjo and Kazooie in "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate", but in the new trailer, the developers once all duped – with a silhouette of the "Duck Hunt" dog, but then the actual Newcomer is knocked down. Luck! In the autumn of 2019, the dynamic duo will be available in the tester.
A new "Zelda"!
The blast finally: "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" gets a real, real, great successor! The trailer does not yet reveal the details, but the fact that the game is currently under development is enough for now. Let the hype begin!
