Nintendo also revealed Super Smash Bros Ultimate will include every character to have appeared in prior versions.

Super Mario Party is a party game that lets multiple players go through minigames and compete with one another. Switch units can even be aligned in wacky and creative positions in order to create new playfields. Super Mario Party drops on October 5, 2018. Final smash attacks have been reworked for some of the characters, such as Sonic, Zelda, and Pac-Man, and on the whole, they've been given more straight-to-the-point animations, which bring players back to the fight more quickly.

Lastly, battle royale game Fortnite will be available at 10 am Pacific Time (1:00 am, Manila time) for people to download and play.

The announcement of Super Smash Bros didn't need any introductions. The series has lost its way in recent years and long-term fans will be hoping for something more like Mario Party 6 (irrefutably the best Mario Party) than Mario Party 10 (irrefutably the worst). Also, Nintendo said that the legendary pokemon Mew will come with the Pokeball as a bonus.
