Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch, as revealed by Nintendo’s E3 Schedule Nintendo DirectBanjo-Kazooie has long been one of those character additions that seemed perfect for Super Smash Bros., but there’s always been one obstacle: Since Microsoft owned Rare, the company that made the games originally, Nintendo didn’t have the rights to reproduce the character on a game solely designed for Nintendo consoles.It seems as though those issues have been resolved.  $289 Aug 19 • Borderlands 3: FL4K, new endgame content and everything else we know $299 $299 Aug 28 • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order trailer, gameplay footage and everything we know See It Why 2020 could be the best year for video games All E3 2019 press conferencesSaturday, June 8Electronic Arts — The game maker showed off 15 minutes of gameplay for its upcoming adventure game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It also announced new features for its free-to-download Apex Legends last-man-standing battle royale game, offering a new character and weapon to play with. The company also showed off a new paid update for The Sims 4, called Island Living, that brings the series to a tropical beach. Finally, the company did discuss drama over the mixed reviews for its Anthem action adventure game, saying it “learned a lot” and had more updates and features planned soon.Sunday, June 9Microsoft / Xbox — The gaming giant’s biggest news was Project Scarlett, its next-generation Xbox, coming in 2020. The new device is up to four times more powerful, the company said. And, like the next-gen PlayStation it’ll include a fast non-mechanical SSD hard drive, and it’ll be powered by custom innards built with the help of chipmaker AMD.  The company also announced that Halo Infinite will launch alongside Project Scarlett next year. Meantime, Microsoft is starting public tests of its Project xCloud streaming service in October, promising people the ability to play high-end games on their mobile devices while away from home. While fans wait, Microsoft announced an update to its Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 as well as a slew of new games. And action star Keanu Reeves, fresh off the success of John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, was on stage to announce his involvement with Cyberpunk 2077, which is coming next year.Bethesda — Bethesda kicked off its event with humility over the mixed response to Fallout 76, but quickly went back on the offensive. Fallout 76 got a new Battle Royale mode, Wolfenstein Youngblood received a new trailer and a co-op mode. We got a new game called Deathloop from the clever folks behind Dishonored and Bethesda introduced us to Orion, a piece of tech from ID Software designed to make game streaming better on services like Google Stadia. The lion’s share of attention, however, went to Doom Eternal, which looked fantastic in both single player and multiplayer.Monday, June 10PC Gaming Show — This annual PC Gaming Show is held at a theater a short walk from the LA Convention Center, but still draws a large crowd, filling the 1,700-person capacity Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Inside, the usual suspects, from Halo to Doom, were nowhere to be found. Instead, the crowd cheered for PC-centric games including Zombie Army 4, Baldur’s Gate 3 and Terraria: Journey’s End. (No, the game sequel problem isn’t any better on PCs.) The highlight was a brief onstage appearance by legendary game designer Yu Suzuki, responsible for classic such as Hang-On and Virtua Fighter. His long-awaited Shenmue 3 is expected in November, 18 years after Shenmue 2. Ubisoft — The French gaming giant announced its next big dystopian hacking adventure game, Watch Dogs: Legion, launching March 2020. The game is set in near-future post-Brexit London, where the economy is failing and government is breaking down. The company also announced a new television show, called Mythic Quest, that’ll launch on Apple TV Plus. And it celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Just Dance party games. Square Enix — This was a huge franchise fair. The press conference started out with juicy details on Final Fantasy VII Remake, namely that it’ll be a two-part game. The first part, an entire Blu-ray Disc, will be devoted to exploring Midgar. After a flurry of trailers and an in-depth look at Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, we then got the main event unveil: Marvel’s Avengers. Tuesday, June 11Nintendo (livestream only) — 9 a.m. PT (noon ET)We’re thereCNET is on the ground, covering covering E3 2019 alongside our sister site Gamespot.
