Hello there readers! I know it hasn’t been that long since I last reached out to you guys for help, after the recent media blowout following the Nintendo Switch launch. On that note, we hope you’ve enjoyed the fantastic articles from this year’s new main contributors, Stan Cohen and Joan Tomko! This year has already been phenomenal for us Nintendo fans, with the madness refusing to cease — and we’re not even halfway through it yet. June is fast approaching though, and we all know what that means: E3 is coming.
At this point we’ve all got our hands on a Switch, had ample time to get a good feel for the console and overloaded ourselves on the incredible experience that is Breath of the Wild. It’s been a very strong start for Nintendo’s system, but this is still just the beginning. This will be the first Nintendo E3 presentation since the console’s launch, and you can bet they’re preparing to go all out.
Those chomping at the bit for more Breath of the Wild are anticipating the two DLC packs coming this year, and with the success that the game has attained, you can be sure that Nintendo will be eager to show these during their Nintendo Spotlight presentation. We can also expect many surprises from the company too with new IP promised, and perhaps we’ll see some upcoming apps and peripherals for the Switch. Reggie has confirmed that the Switch’s portable cousin won’t be forgotten about either, with new software on the way for the 3DS.
By joining our news team, you could help share all of these momentous new details with fellow gamers, delivering exciting articles hot off the press through the largest Zelda fansite around. I’m inviting you to come work with like-minded Nintendo fanatics who can help shape you into a top reporter, and have your work read by thousands of Zelda fans!
So how about it?
