Nintendo at E3

Picture of Sandoozee
Co-Founder of Time Wasters. Favourites are Couch co-ops, games that can be made into drinking games, and anything open world. Grew up on Nintendo but I have been putting considerable time into the Playstation 4. Nintendo will always have my heart.

When it comes to learning what’s coming out – E3 is basically information Christmas. 

I could go through every single item that was mentioned during the event but let’s be honest, you won’t read that. You might think you will but at best you’ll get two pages in and you’ll think to yourself “I’m over this”. 

Instead let’s break it up into categories and items in those categories will get a more in-depth look in the future. Click here to see all our articles about E3. 

Let’s dig into Nintendo.
