Super Mario Party is a brand new Mario Party game coming to the Nintendo Switch, officially announced during the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 live stream. The game combines every Smash Bros fighter in the series history, bringing 64 combatants into arenas pulled from across the Nintendo 64, GameCube, Wii U and 3DS releases.
Nintendo announced in April that it had sold 17.7 million units of the Switch to date, and forecast it would sell a further 20 million over the following year. Depending on what kind of Nintendo fan you are, you're either overjoyed to see Ridley join the roster, or miffed that anticipated E3 2018 games like a new Animal Crossing on Switch and Metroid Prime 4 were total no-shows.
This story is developing. This is only half of Nintendo E3 2018 show though as the remaining 30 minutes have been dedicated to Super Smash Bros.
As ever, competitive gaming is just as big a focus of Smash as casual slugfests, with Sakurai detailing a wealth of changes to refine, speed up and rebalance the game.
Amiibo characters can also be used from past releases, complete with saved data.

For fans of Nintendo and the company's enormous roster of colourful video game characters, it's an ultimate dream come true. I checked it out today this new entry in Nintendo's crossover fighting franchise during a special Nintendo Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event today in Los Angeles. Thanks to Ridley's nimble aerial attacks (plus a whole lot of luck, given how rusty I am at the game) I emerged victorious against the likes Inkling, Zelda and that ol' mainstay, Mario. Brawl - but are you ready for Super Smash Bros. all?
For my second match I chose the lithe and lovely gun-toting Bayonetta, and it came down to a sudden death faceoff against Street Fighter's Ryu.
Nintendo kicked things off with a new game, which you might've mistaken for a new Armored Core.
The game releases August 7th. You want to play old games online? A new title card screen pops up before each fight, showing large portraits of each character before the battle begins.
Other characters include Ness, Lucas, Ganondorf, Ike, Pichu, Jigglypuff, Roy, Olimar, Diddy Kong, Lucario and Lucina, not to mention Robin, Mr Game and Watch, Greninja, R.O.B, Dr. Mario, Duck Hunt, Pit, Dark Pit, Palutena, Corrin, Bowser Jr, Toon Link, Young Link and King Dedede.

According to Local Memphis , Nikita Blake, another of Cheeks' neighbours, added: "It's very sad". They say Leimome Cheeks is a very nice woman and they can't believe she did something like this.
