Nintendo Spotlight E3 2018: Live Stream & Reactions with Linksliltri4ce!

Hut-Hiya, everybody!!! ♥
PB&A Crew Member Linksliltri4ce here reporting LIVE on Nintendo's 2018 E3 Press Conference. Join me at NOON EST as we see what Nintendo has in store for us!

I will be live blogging the event as well as live-streaming on the good ol' PBnAwesome Twitch Channel, so let's hop on the hype train together!

Here's what I'd like to see:
  • I know my hubs and fellow PB&A member, Jackfelgar, will go bananas if we don't hear about the official release date of the Switch's Dark Souls remake, so there better be an update on that! ;)
  • I know that the newest addition to the Smash Bros. franchise is going to be big this year, especially with all of the competitive events taking place.  I guess I'd like to just see some footage and a new roster of characters to play as.
  • It's been awhile since we've had any news on the new Metroid game... Comic Book Jon, yet another PB&A member, will be stoked to hear more on that one, so I hope there's good news today.
  • I always like seeing Zelda stuffs, obvs... while I still have plenty of spoiler-free Breath of the Wild to conquer, I'm never too busy for more LoZ love in my life.  I don't necessarily need another remake in the lineup, but maybe another DLC or a teaser at future game(s) would TINGLE my fancy.
  • It's not really my game of choice, but I do hope to see something on the idea of a FULL Pokemon game coming to the Switch.  I just think it'd be neat to have an actual console-based Pokemon title off of the standard handhelds.
  • My "Hail Miyamoto" throw would be any news on a new Professor Layton or Luigi's Mansion title.  (Outside of remaking the original Luigi's Mansion on the 3DS.)  I didn't quite get into the Katrielle sequel in the Layton line, which was a HUGE bummer for me... The Phoenix Wright crossover was so good that not bringing myself to finish the newest game leaves me pining for the good old games.  I feel like Nintendo might be seeing Luigi's Mansion picking up steam, so adding another game to the series could be a boon.  After playing in the Luigi's Mansion Arcade Game I am TOTES down for more of my favorite Nintendian Ghostbuster!

So with all of that in mind I will be reporting back here at NOON EST on June 12th for the big day!

Hut-Hiya, again! ♥  We're just about ready to get started!
