Solid Snake Returning For Super Smash Bros For Switch? Todd Black

Nintendo and Epic certainly seem to be winding up for an E3 2018 reveal, and if that's the case, we have less than a week to wait before it's official.

So pop these times into your diary and make sure you return to read all the big gaming news as it's revealed on the day.

When is Nintendo's E3 2018 Conference?

Needless to say, the hype around this event is palpable, whether you're in attendance or watching from home. We will see some gameplay, get some character announcements, hopefully, a couple of pleasant surprises, but not the full roster as well as at least a release month if not an exact date. Just last week, we heard rumors that Fortnite might be coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it seems that Nintendo may have just confirmed the release. While we won't know for certain until next week what Nintendo has in store for us we can assume they have a lot lined up for us. It also looks like it will have small LED lighting to indicate the player's number when playing local multiplayer or co-op.

One of the best things about the Nintendo Switch is the many ways users can play games on it. I personally would like to see The Wonderful 101 and Paper Mario: Color Splash make the jump, but those are more personal preferences than actual predictions.

The game developer will bring Genesis: Alpha One and this will be its world's first console hands-on.

As we quickly move closer to this year's E3, rumors regarding upcoming games have been intensifying.

This will commemorate the tournament that will be held next week and will be distributed in a Nintendo Switch News article on the Splatoon 2 channel on Thursday 7th June.

References to Fortnite have been spotted in a recent eShop update.
