However, with E3 officially kicking off this coming Saturday (9th of June) we'd be remiss not to think that Epic Games and Nintendo both have something up their sleeves.

XSEED Games revealed its E3 line-up for next week; and, as part of its lineup, it confirmed that Freedom Planet is making its way to Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Switch is only beginning to hit its stride as more and more third-party publishers decide to support the console.

We know we'll be seeing more about Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee at the show, as well as more about Super Smash Bros. Nintendo has already said the fighting game will be the focus of its overall showing this year, so you can expect a lot of news and reveals during the event. In other Fortnite news, Epic Games the creators of Fortnite announced that it will provide $100 million (R1 254 965 000.00) in prize pool money for Fortnite competitions that will take place the end of this year or the beginning 2019.

Any guesses as to what we'll see in the Nintendo Direct: E3 2018 next week? I personally would like to see The Wonderful 101 and Paper Mario: Color Splash make the jump, but those are more personal preferences than actual predictions.

However, if it's coming on multiple platforms. does that suggest the game will be coming out on Nintendo Switch?

When it comes to leaking games, Nintendo seems to have a odd way of dealing with such mistakes.

The game is once again being developed by GalaxyTrail and puts players in control of a number of heroes including a "spunky dragon girl and her friends" that go up against "alien attack forces" driven by "hostile foreign powers".

"According to our research, teams from around the world will be competing at the Splatoon 2 World Championship in Los Angeles during E3".

References to Fortnite have been spotted in a recent eShop update.
