Nintendo's E3 2017 presentation dated, promises new Super Mario Odyssey details

Posted May 14, 2017

Of course, players will be able to get a lot more additional content by checking popular Minecraft DLCs on the Nintendo eShop.

In fact, Nintendo could be said to be rather over the top in the past, having hired orchestras as they did in 2011 by celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda (all right, we will let that slide because of two things: it is Zelda that we're talking about here, and a 25th anniversary of anything good is worth celebrating), or having comedians pitch their games. The game will allow players to control Mario as they explore different 3D worlds. In addition, Nintendo's latest console will benefit from a wealth of exclusives as well including the upcoming "Pokemon Stars" game, the "Splatoon" sequel and the new 3D fighting title called "ARMS".

Thankfully, the team at have done a quick comparison to help showcase the difference between all three set ups.

But hidden underneath most of the financial reports are some comments from CEO Andrew Wilson regarding the Switch - or more plainly, their consistency in staying in "wait and see mode".

"And finally, to compare, we have a shot of Minecraft running on the Wii U. It of course runs at 720p and renders 10 chunks in distance, so it doesn't look like much has changed in terms of getting more visual fidelity out of the increased hardware on the Nintendo Switch, which is a shame". With the recent release on the portable Nintendo Switch, "Minecraft" takes the hype to another level with a nostalgic gift for all Nintendo console users: a custom and built-in "Super Mario Mash-Up" pack. An important year for the Big N with their newest machine, the Nintendo Switch, tearing up the sales charts, their E3 show will have a focus on Super Mario Odyssey among other 2017 titles.

During the most recent Nintendo Direct, a whole variety of games were both revealed and given official release dates.

The 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational splats onto the scene on June 13 and features Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch.
