Nintendo Details Its Plans for E3 2017

New Nintendo Switch Game Releases

Minecraft for Switch

After the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017, the Nintendo Treehouse: Live will begin.

Nintendo Switch is out, but there are only a handful of games to get excited about on the console at the moment. They are back and they are not going down easily this year.

Nintendo's E3 booth will host a couple of tournaments during E3, including competitions between ARMS and Splatoon 2 players.

Nintendo's announcement comes as the company is experiencing a rebirth in its hardware division thanks to the wildly popular Nintendo Switch.

"First off, the digital version of RIME on Nintendo Switch will now cost $29.99 / €34.99 / £29.99, the same price as the game on other platforms".

What do you think of the events that Nintendo is organizing for its presentation in E3 2017? The game continues to find itself on almost all gaming platforms, and that continues with Nintendo's home console/portable hybrid. This stream will focus on Nintendo Switch games that will be released this year.

ARMS will make its way to Nintendo Switch on June 16th, while the squid shooter sequel fun of Splatoon 2 is launching July 21st. You can watch them as they are livestreamed from June 13-15.

However excited the whole community was before the launch, has seemed to equalize on the fact that Nintendo Switch can not (most probably) have as great a support for 3rd party vendors as compared to the other consoles.

The reason for the pricing difference is that the cartridges Switch games come on cost more to manufacture than discs for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

In addition, the game includes the exclusive Nintendo texture-pack which was included in the Wii U version of the game. The team behind the game put this down to relatively high production costs for Nintendo's newest consheld. That being said, it would be great to see Nintendo take advantage of its previous successes with a range of officially licensed retro skins - perhaps even as a way of promoting the Switch's upcoming Virtual Console functionality.
