We’re not far off the gaming industry’s event-to-end-all-events, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and news is now coming thick and fast. Not usually one to play its cards early, Nintendo have already confirmed at least some of the games that will be playable at their booth on the E3 show floor in the following tweet:
Don’t miss your chance to play #LuigisMansion 3, #PokemonSwordShield & more for the first time @ #E32019! Tune into the #NintendoDirect @ 9amPT on 6/11, followed by #NintendoTreehouseLive throughout the show for more game info & the latest Nintendo news. https://t.co/0lcDwkjtO6 pic.twitter.com/NxB8ve9wc8

Of course there is still more to come, likely many unannounced games that will be featured during Nintendo’s E3 direct, but it’s heartening to see Luigi’s Mansion 3 among the mix. I’m hoping for an information blowout around Luigi’s next ghostly adventure and if this is any indication, we should get something decent. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is another one that should excite many people to see, and of course Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will be a big draw after the stellar Direct a couple of days ago. I’m less enthused personally about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 but it’s a big win for the Switch platform and I know a lot of people are pretty damned excited about that one.
