Welcome back to my E3 2021 recap! Today is the day I had been waiting for, and I was not disappointed! As usual, Nintendo saved the day with it’s new game announcements, and a three hour showing of gameplay footage from a few of the games announced! Let’s take a quick look at want went on today, and then we will move onto breaking things down.

Of course, Nintendo was the star of E3’s final day, as it went on for nearly four hours with all the content they had to show. We got a plethora of things to look forward to with games of all sorts.

Also, E3 held a game awards ceremony for the most anticipated video games, which is pretty cool! We’ll take a look at that once we break down the last three conferences that went on for E3’s last day.

It’s so tiny, but holds so much nostalgia!

Also, the expansion pack for Age of Calamity has Princess Zelda herself on my favorite ride in Breath of the Wild, the motorcycle…

Also, Link’s new weapon looks cool!

But the moment all of us Legend of Zelda fans had been waiting for came at the very end, when they dropped a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2!
