Nintendo just wrapped up its E3 2021 showcase event and while the much-rumoured 4K Switch was nowhere to be seen, the company did host quite a game-packed stream. Some of the biggest announcements include the first gameplay footage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Mario Party, Metroid Dread and more.
While many hoped to see the 4K Nintendo Switch announced during the stream, it never happened. We still wonder how the console went from “almost being revealed” a few weeks ago to not seeing the light of day at all. Anyway, if you missed the showcase then we have a full roundup down below. Nintendo says that all gameplay shown during the stream and release dates could change so keep that in mind.
