Skyrim will unleash its chaos on Nintendo Switch this November

Rounding off the European Nintendo Direct was a lengthy overview of Super Mario Odyssey.

Nintendo didn't forget about 3DS system owners. The five new $359.99 Nintendo Switch bundles ship by September 29. That's nearly twice as long as their E3 2017 Spotlight. The only thing we know for sure about it right now is what was originally stated on that direct, "A new multiplayer action game for the Nintendo 3DS".

Get ready to be whisked away to unusual and wonderful places far from the Mushroom Kingdom. In the Nintendo Direct, they announced a demo for Nintendo Switch to be released later this day, as well as a release window of 2018.

For Switch, there are a few safe bets. Compatible amiibo include those from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary - The Legend of Zelda series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series.

Super Mario Odyssey launches for the Nintendo Switch on October 27.

Doom and Wolfenstein are coming in 2018.

There's also third-party to consider. Likewise, we could also hear about other features of the Switch hardware, including online functionality and 3rd party services you might expect to find there, as well. It's shaping up to be the biggest Mario game yet.

Over a year on from its release, Overwatch is still hugely popular with fans with many praising the game for its updates, game play tweaks and new characters.

We also got more details on how Mario will travel between all these colorful locations. But these catch-all Directs, for the most part, have kept the focus squarely on upcoming games (and amiibo figures to be used with those games) rather than services. A physical edition has also been announced, coming at a later date. Simply put, Nintendo Switch is just more appealing than the Wii.

Will Nintendo say anything about its next smartphone games?

-Arcade versions of classics such as the original Mario Bros. will be making their way to Switch. On top of that, Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime has warned again in September that the company might not be able to make enough Nintendo Switch consoles.

The promise of a brand new Square Enix game for Switch turned out to be the previously teased Octopath Traveler, an old school Japanese role-player with an unusual graphical style that's being dubbed HD-2D.

If you haven't yet bought a 3DS system, you might want to hold off until November 3, when a new Pokebal-themed model launches.

Until now it was confirmed that this game is a Special Edition but adapted to the portable environment.

What do you think?

Watch the Nintendo Direct itself above so you can catch the multitudes of announcements I couldn't cover here.

The September Nintendo Direct will take place on 13 September at 11pm United Kingdom time.
