E3 2019 saved one of the best conferences for last. Nintendo delivered rapid-fire must-see announcements for Pokémon Sword and ShieldAnimal CrossingLuigi's Mansion 3, Witcher 3: Complete Edition, and tons more.

If that doesn't get you hyped to be a Switch owner, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is getting a few surprise character reveals, cult classic Dark Crystals is being turned into a video game, and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a sequel.

Unfortunately, still no information on the rumored next-generation Switch consoles, which will presumably feature an XL version and a more affordable option compared to the original. Despite the omission of the new consoles, Nintendo delivers enough announcements and surprises to keep fans excited and occupied for the next year and then some.

Check out all the biggest announcements from Nintendo's  E3 2019 Direct below.
