It won’t be all about Pokemon, though. As the developer’s iconic Smash Ultimate title appears to be hurtling towards a conclusion, and Zelda fans cross their fingers and toes for a new Breath of The Wild, there’s a lot of things that could slip through the cracks.

As we mentioned earlier, 2021 promises to be a big year for Nintendo in terms of Pokemon, but there’s a lot more than just that on the developer’s horizon.
With promises of a new console and more, Nintendo’s E3 stream promises to be a pretty spectacular event.
Pokemon Legends Arceus
First up on our watch list is anything related to Pokemon Legends Arceus. The open-world style title has fans already on the edge of their seats, and dropping the official release date has only added fuel to the fire.
With January 28, 2022, being the date everyone is looking forward to, players will be hoping to catch a few more glimpses into this very different take on the Pokemon adventure. It’s basically as if you took Pokemon and Zelda: Breath of the Wild and blended them together. See why we’re excited yet?
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
Dropping just before Arceus on 19 November, 2021, is the remaster of Generation IV titles Diamond and Pearl. A trip down memory lane for trainers everywhere, both titles are highly sought after by trainers everywhere.
While we’re not expecting anything new gameplay-wise, it’ll be interesting to see if the devs give us any further insight into the title’s new features and graphical enhancements.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
If all of that Pokemon madness doesn’t have you stoked, then the possibility of a sequel to the iconic Zelda title, Breath of the Wild, surely will. While we’ve known about the sequel for some time, there’s been very little official discussion around it.
Save for this pretty ominous trailer, we know next to nothing about the new installment in the classic series, so we’ll just need to wait and see what E3 gifts us.
The new Nintendo Switch Pro
As we move into yet another generation of consoles, it’s likely that we’ll see some snippets of the newest console on the block: the Nintendo Switch Pro.
With the company’s newest hardware set to release in Autumn alongside the cheaper alternative, the Switch lite, fans will no doubt be looking forward to the possibility of upgraded graphics, software, and much, much more!
Last on our list of “must-sees” is Metroid Prime 4. First showcased all the way back at E3 in 2017, fans have been waiting to sink their teeth into the highly anticipated title.
With only the above trailer to go on and no leaks so far, any sliver of information would reignite the hype around the classic title.
