For many gamers, E3 2021 hasn't churned out as many big announcements as expected. Many would say it was a disappointment so far, but Nintendo changed that with a bevy of game reveals and updates that was enough to satisfy fans. No, Nintendo didn't reveal an updated Switch as many predicted; instead, they surprised fans with the announcement of "Metroid Dread," a remake of its "Advance Wars" series, a new "WarioWare" entry and a Game & Watch for "The Legend of Zelda's" 35th anniversary. Oh, franchise supervisor Eiji Aonuma also showed off clips from a "Breath of the Wild" sequel. "Metroid Dread" was the biggest piece of news coming from the showcase -- While everyone was predicting a "Mario Kart 9" or "Pikmin 4," few were expecting a return of the the classic "Metroid" 2D gameplay.
