As I’m sure all of you gamers know, E3 has been a thing the past few days. I have yet to have a chance to sit down and watch some streams due to work, but I wanted to touch upon a few Nintendo games that caught my eye.
4. Mario Party Star Rush
I absolutely love the Mario series. The older ones are classic and the newer ones (up until number 8) are great and still fun. I’m not a huge fan of Mario Party 10 and I’ never played Mario Party 9, though I heard it was similar to number 10. Star Rush is quite indeed. It’s not the same as the old school Mario Party games, but it’s not so similar to Mario Party 10 that will make me turn away from it.
From the trailer, it seems as though you all play as Toad and move at the same time, but not together. You have your own dice block, roll it at the same time as everyone else, you plan out your path based on the number you roll, and then you all move at once. Honestly, I was chuckling watching four toads rampage through the one board. So it’s different in that aspect and may even make things fun if we compete for spaces. You can also recruit other Mario characters for your “team.” I’m not entirely sure how that works, but it’s an interesting mechanic nonetheless.
I wasn’t impressed with the last Mario Party and while I’m disappointed Star Rush doesn’t go back to Mario Party’s original routes (and it’s for the 3DS. I prefer to play Mario Party games on a console.), it does look like they tried to improve some aspects from Mario Party 10. I’m willing to give it a try.
The release date for this game is November 4, 2016.
3. Paper Mario: Color Splash
I’ve talked about Color Splash before. Paper Mario is one of my all-time favorite games and while I would like a new Paper Mario game that’s similar to the first and second games, I still have hope for Color Splash.
We now have a release date for October 7, 2016.
2. Pokemon Sun & Moon
Who is not excited for a new Pokemon game? Let’s be real now.
Again, I’ve talked about Sun and Moon before so there’s not too much to say. Though they did showcase three new Pokemon, which I think are absolutely adorable, even if other people say otherwise. I’m super excited for this generation as a whole and wish I had enough Pokemon to start planning my team!
These games are being released November 18, 2016.
1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Again, I haven’t actually watched any of E3 so I’m going by my own knowledge and views of trailers on YouTube as well as wonderful spoilers of the Internet. Due to that, I’ll talk more in-depth about this game in a later post.
However… I just want to say that I cannot wait for this game. It looks absolutely gorgeous and you can’t go wrong with a Zelda game. I can’t wait to see all the new things they have in store for us. I absolutely loved Skyward Sword, but this is such a step up.
We are long overdue for a Zelda game, but now I see why it took them so long.
This game will be released in 2017.
