Outside of third-party titles, Nintendo has been announcing some of its first-party line-up for the remainder of the year.

A recent 35th Mario Anniversary Direct brought multiple titles to fruition based around the popular company mascot. Super Mario 3D All-Stars will bring together three classic games from the franchise in one complete package. NME recently reviewed the game and described it as a lovingly crafted package of Mario’s best adventures.

The company recently also announced a prequel to The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. The new title is called Hyrule Warriors 2: Age Of Calamity and is heavily based around fast-paced combat and fighting hordes of Hyrule’s enemies.
