'Minecraft' on Nintendo Switch is the last version you should ever buy

Odyssey represents a return to classic sandbox Mario gaming, and it promises to be the highlight of Nintendo's holiday season. According to the announcement, the digital copies of the game for the console will now be sold for $29.99, which is similar to its price on the other three platforms.

While online shops from consoles such as The Xbox One or PS4 having the credit card storage capabilities, players of the Switch would have only expected no different with the recently released console.

Other playable games include ARMS, and Splatoon 2, and both will be featured in their own invitational tournaments at the Nintendo E3 booth. This is most likely where game developers will delve deeper into the new games they're now working on. "Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017" will deliver new information about Super Mario Odyssey, as well as other Switch games scheduled to launch this year. You can watch them as they are livestreamed from June 13-15.

Nintendo will also host game tournaments that will be livestreamed from the E3 show floor. Quite why a Nintendo Switch cartridge - essentially a jumped up SD card with a bitter taste - costs more to produce than a disc is anybody's guess.

Nintendo's plans for E3 are always a bit on the unorthodox side, compared to their peers.

The Nintendo Treehouse at E3 2017 will again give behind-the-scenes info and commentary from game developers and members of the Nintendo Treehouse team.

However excited the whole community was before the launch, has seemed to equalize on the fact that Nintendo Switch can not (most probably) have as great a support for 3rd party vendors as compared to the other consoles. Although, I plan to stay cautiously optimistic for their reveals, as Nintendo has a knack for announcing bigger news after E3, i.e. the Nintendo Switch reveal.

In addition to these deeper previews, Nintendo Switch owners were also given a better look at Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and a release date for the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition.
