Not a word was mentioned regarding the Pokemon Switch game. The company is looking to bulk up its offerings at E3.

Ultimate for Switch was announced for release on December 7. Ultimate, ended up taking up most of the length of the presentation, and it promises to be the best title ever in the series.

And the appearance of the multiplayer smash hit Fortnite on the Switch - as a free download - shows that third-party developers are willing to jump on board too.

Aside from a few brief trailers and mentions of ports, such as the Fortnite port arriving on Switch today, its presentation was all about one game, Super Smash Bros.

I had a chance to get an early hands-on demo with Super Smash Bros. So far the only new fighters in Ultimate will be Splatoon's Inkling and Ridley from Metroid. After exploding in popularity on PC, the game has branched out to Xbox and PS4. But the 30 minutes or so I played told me everything I needed to know right now: This game is a lot of fun. There's no Switch-specific content, though.

Daemon X Machina, a brand-new mech game from the mind of Armored Core developer Kenichiro Tsukuda was announced for Switch.

If you'd like to get your hands on Super Smash Bros. This is still the casual cartoony button-masher if you want it to be.

Super Mario Party features new minigames played in a variety of ways, from traditional controller-and-TV types to tabletop modes that run across two wirelessly connected Switch systems.

Nearly every character has seen changes in the way they're used, from different sets of attacks to different designs, more customization options and other adjustments to improve the pace of the game, including a more natural progression system for obtaining new characters. I think it took four games for me to record my first victory (with Fire Emblem Fates' Corrin).

Many more assist trophies have been added, the graphics have seen a massive overhaul and some palette swap characters have different characteristics when you play them (Daisy / Peach, for example). 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.
