Suffice to say, Nintendo's forthcoming offerings are a stark contrast to everything seen at E3 thus far; more diverse, more colourful, more fun... and generally more surprising. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are soon to enter the gurgling death throes of their life cycles, the Switch has no plans to nail itself into a coffin anytime soon.
Here are the main takeaways from Nintendo at E3.
Given that Nintendo has rarely hurried to release direct sequels to its biggest franchises, given that it looks like it'll be the first time you can play as Zelda herself, given that the company always plays its cards close to its chest... this is huge for Nintendo fans. And Nintendo.
Like a kid who just did up their own shoelaces for the first time, it's hard not to feel a little proud of them.
It's further evidence of a steadily warming relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft, which began when the latter greased the wheels for Cuphead to slither onto Switch.
Should've hired Roger Dean as a consultant.
Beyond that... well... I've never played an Animal Crossing game, so for all I know you have to stuff quoits up a nozzle.
What's really lovely about Nintendo is that, while Microsoft shoved most of its cuter, less graphically bells-and-whistles games, into a brief montage, Nintendo affords them equal worth. For Nintendo, a game is a game, whether its a 2D, top-down, thing, or a huge, 3D, open world, action game.
And this is why Nintendo won E3.
