Nintendo Return to EGX with Switch and 3DS
The EGX news that got me the most excited was hearing Nintendo was returning to the show floor. In 2015, Nintendo’s stand was my favourite part and I am so hoping that they will throw out all the stops for their return. Nintendo was hugely missed last year, I think they should work hard to make up for their lack of attendance.
Nintendo has provided me with my favourite game in the whole world ever with Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I am hoping for some decent merchandise but I’m also really looking forward to trying Super Mario Odyssey. Although I am not the biggest Mario fan in the house I adored Mario 64 and Galaxy was pretty incredible too. I don’t think Odyssey will be a letdown.
There are plenty of other Switch and 3DS titles that we’ll be trying out:
- Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
- Worms W.M.D
- Metroid: Samus Returns
- Mario & Luigi: Superstar Sage
- Monster Hunter Stories
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Splatoon 2
- Pokkén Tournament DX
- Fire Emblem Warriors
In addition to the games, Nintendo are also crowning four champions who will battle it out at EGX. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe EGX Championship takes place on 21 Sept. The ARMS EGX 2017 Grand Prix is on the 22 Sept. Saturday 23 Sept will be The Splatoon 2 UK Championship Grand Final and the Pokkén Tournament DX EGX 2017 Invitational is on Sept 24.
