Katherine Ross: E3 2019 is in full swing and Nintendo just released its lineup for the rest of the year. Here are the three biggest takeaways. Luigi's mansion 3 is one of the two big first-party releases from Nintendo during E3 2019. And the game will have a multiplayer mode. It will be released over on the Switch console. Animal Crossing New Horizons is the next edition to the animal crossing franchise. But Nintendo announced that it's delayed until 2020. However, there is some good news here. It's going to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive. And finally there's the legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sequel. It was surprisingly announced at the very end of Nintendo's E3 presentation. There's no timeline for the release just yet, but it's being developed for the Switch. And finally, Nintendo announced that one of my personal favorite video games, the Witcher Wild Hunt will be coming to the Switch later this year. The game, which was originally released back in 2015 is also being turned into a Netflix special. I'm Katherine Ross and stick with TheStreet for more E3 coverage.

E3 is underway.

E3, or the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is one of the largest video game conferences in the world. 

It goes from June 11-13, but it's surrounded by other video game developer events.

On Tuesday, Nintendo (NTDOY) presented its lineup of games for the next year. 

Luigi's Mansion 3

The video game and console developer kicked off its presentation with a teaser trailer for Luigi's Mansion 3, a game that stars Mario's brother as he wanders through a haunted hotel.

The game is the first time that Luigi has starred in his own game since Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, which was released back in 2013. 

The game will be released sometime in 2019.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Nintendo teased the return of the popular Animal Crossing franchise. 

The newest game will take place on a deserted island. 


Originally, Animal Crossing was slated for a 2019 release, but it was announced at E3 that the company had bumped it back to a March 2020 release. 

This game is meant to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel

In the final minutes of Nintendo's presentation, they revealed that a sequel to the Breath of the Wild installation in the Legend of Zelda series is in the works.

However, there's no timeline set for the game's release just yet. 

Breath of the Wild was originally released back in 2017. 

The Witcher: Wild Hunt

Geralt is back.

Nintendo announced that the most recent game in the Witcher series would be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. 

The acclaimed open world adventure and winner of over 250 Game of the Year awards, #TheWitcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition, comes to #NintendoSwitch! Take your steel and silver swords anywhere you want when the game launches in 2019.
