Three Bold Predictions for Nintendo at E3
We are just moments away from the Summer Game Fest kicking off, so I thought I would quickly put pen to paper and let you know what three crazy predictions I have for Nintendo at E3 2021! Note, these are not all Nintendo first part specific, and could carry over to other publishers – with that, let’s jump in!
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle 2
Mario + Rabbids is one of my favourite games of all time on the Nintendo Switch, and in reality, potentially ever on any console. While I’ve never been much of an XCOM fan, I quickly gravitated to this title because of the slightly easier mechanics, Mario characters, and fun Rabbids twist. Ubisoft did great work with Nintendo’s IP, and create a truly unique experience. It’s been many years since the first title in the series launched – it’s about time we get another!

Brand New Pokemon Let’s Go…
It’s time to give Silver, Gold and Crystal the Let’s Go treatment. Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevvee are too of my favorite Pokémon titles in recent memory. I have a lot of fond memories of playing Pokémon Yellow back on my Gameboy, so replaying these titles with brand new mechanics was fun. While many hated the system put in place by Game Freak for catching Pokémon, I actually enjoyed this relaxing romp through beautifully detailed, yet familiar environments. I would love to see Gold, Silver, and Crystal get similar treatments.
More Gamecube Remakes
Nintendo is going to go back to the well and give us at least one remake during E3 2021 – I have no doubt about that. But I want Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. This is still the best the Paper Mario series has ever been, and to return to this world on the Nintendo Switch would be magnificent. I would also accept more 2D Zelda remakes like the one we got two years back.
