Today’s lineup features a slew of titles for the holiday period, including the launch of Nintendo Switch, Mario Odyssey, New Super Mario Bros. U, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Splatoon 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Animal Shelter, Splatterhouse, Star Fox Zero, and Pokemon Sun & Moon.

Additionally, Nintendo has a new holiday event called the Nintendo Switch Game Show, which will air at 6pm EST on November 3.
