Splatoon 2's Inklings are in Smash Bros, but we don't know much else
What's not clear, however, is if the Nintendo Switch version of Smash Bros. will be a new entry in the series, or an updated port of the version that came out on the Wii U and 3DS. All we know for sure is that it will have Mario, Link from the Legend of Zelda, and the boy and girl Inkling characters from Splatoon.
Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion is a new single-player mode!
This summer, Splatoon 2 will be getting a new single-player campaign! The $19.99 Octo Expansion story mode will follow the adventure of an Octoling through a series of subterranean tests! Complete the challenges, and you'll be able to play as an Octoling character in online multiplayer!
It's also heavily retro themed -- check out that GameCube floating in the background!
The game is also getting a big free update in April -- adding in three new levels (Camp Triggerfish, Piranha Pit and Wahoo World), as well as 100 pieces of gear and a new maximum rank for hard-core players: Rank X!
That's not the only Nintendo multiplayer game getting some love either: On March 18, Nintendo will be hosting an online tournament for ARMS, its bizarre telescopic boxing game! Anyone with a copy of the game can play -- and players who don't already own ARMS can try it for free on March 31 in a new "Testpunch" event!
The new version of Mario Tennis will have the traditional, simple controls we know and love -- but there are also a ton of special moves and advanced shots added in to give the game an extra layer of depth.
Kirby StarAllies is out on March 16 -- with a free update coming soon!
The next Kirby game is all about making friends -- letting the hungry pink fluffball team up with in-game enemies. That's pretty cool on its own, but Nintendo is sweetening the pot just a few weeks after release: On March 28th, a free update to the game will let Kirby team up with King DeDe, Metaknight and more!
Looking for something a bit more hard-core? Nintendo showed off a few minutes of footage from Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes -- which transports the titular hero into the video game world. There, he'll be able to play seven different games, including an action game, a racing game, a puzzle game and more.
The remake of From Software's iconic brawler is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 25 -- but if you're new to the franchise, and not sure if it's a fit for you, don't worry. The game will have a free network test later this year to let players try it before buying.
For the longest time, Okami was the Nintendo Wii exclusive that everybody just had to play. Recently, it was given the HD treatment for modern consoles and PC gamers -- but weirdly, there was no word of the game returning to Nintendo. That changes this summer, when Okami HD comes home to the Nintendo Switch.
Last year's E3 was mostly about showing of Super Mario Odyssey -- but in-between romps through New Donk City, Nintendo paused to show off Sushi Striker: a frantic 3DS game about eating and throwing sushi.
It looked delicious -- and it still does -- but now we know the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch, too. Both versions will release on June 8.
Super Mario 3D World was great -- but one of the best things about it was the Toad-themed mini-game levels. Those turned into the Wii U's Captain Toad, which didn't see much life outside of its home console. Thankfully, it's coming to the Switch on July 13!
The original Luigi's Mansion on GameCube was envisioned as a 3D game -- but the accessory that would have given it the illusion of depth never came out. That always felt like a lost piece of gaming history, but it's going to be a reality soon: Luigi's Mansion is being remade for 3DS later this year.
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
Last year's remake of Mario & Luigi: SuperStar Saga for 3DS must have sold well, because Nintendo is doing it again. This time, it's bringing Bowser's Inside Story to the 3DS -- but it'll be awhile before you can relive this RPG: it won't hit the portable console until sometime in 2019.
