Expectations from Nintendo Direct at E3 2021

Nintendo Switch Pro

Nintendo Switch Pro would probably be the most exciting announcement from Nintendo Direct at E3 2021. Apart from all the leaks and rumors surfacing on the web about the upcoming next-gen console, no official statement has been released from Nintendo’s end.

Moreover, a rumor came recently claiming to be the leaked picture of the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pro. Others mention that the upcoming Switch Pro will feature Nvidia’s chip allowing for DLSS support.

However, only time will tell much truth about these rumors when Nintendo Direct airs on June 15th at E3 2021.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a hugely popular Nintendo video game. Apparently, there have been rumors suggesting that another Legend of Zelda game could launch in late 2021.

Nintendo gave us a glimpse of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 during E3 2019. In the teaser trailer, Nintendo revealed that the game is in the development phase. We believe it’s about time we get to see some gameplay trailer alongside other information about the upcoming game.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is an upcoming action RPG game on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has already released the trailer for this game, and we know that Pokémon Legends: Arceus will hit Nintendo Switch in early 2022.

It would be interesting to play a Pokémon action RPG finally, probably a dream come true for Pokémon game fans. We’re hopeful that Nintendo will drop a gameplay video at Nintendo Direct at E3 2021.

Splatoon 3

Splatoon is a third-person shooter game by Nintendo. While this game is not as big as other esports titles, it has surely turned some eyes; and has shown potential for a possible esports title from Nintendo.

Splatoon has made its way into many hearts through splatting some ink, and we’re hoping to see a gameplay reveal with new developments aimed at Splatoon 3.

Bayonetta 3

A hack and slash-type video game by Nintendo could make a comeback at E3 2021. While the game runs on multiple platforms, it is most popular on a Nintendo Switch.

Moreover, it’s been almost 7 years since we saw the last Bayonetta game, with Bayonetta 2 releasing in 2017. Nintendo did release a teaser trailer for Bayonetta 3 in 2017. However, no solid information has been revealed about the game so far, which makes us wonder, would Bayonetta 3 be on Nintendo’s roster at E3 2021? We surely hope it is!

Metroid Prime 4

Metroid Prime is an action-adventure video game series with multiple installments under its wing. At E3 2017, Nintendo revealed a trailer for the upcoming installment, Metroid Prime 4.

Interestingly, no further concrete information is known about this game so far. Moreover, we’re positive that Nintendo would finally reveal some intricacies about the Metroid Prime 4 at this year’s E3.

Here’s our list of every Nintendo game to look for at E3 2021. The event goes on air on June 15, Tuesday, and you can watch it on YouTube, Twitch, and Nintendo’s Website.
