    Since its initial announcement during the September 2018 Nintendo Direct, Luigi's Mansion 3 has been somewhat of a mystery.
    During Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct , we finally saw some of the gameplay that will be featured in the series' third entry.
    We were fortunate enough to get some hands-on time with a demo on the showroom floor, and it provided both a nostalgic blast to the past as well as an optimistic look toward the future.

    At E3 2019, I was able to try out the upcoming Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 , the lengthily-titled next entry in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series.
    The game has plenty of different characters to play as and a variety of different mini-games in which to partake, and its gameplay is surprisingly simple. Perhaps too much so for those that have yet to try the games.
    The E3 demo featured a few playable characters and four different sports in which they could partcipate, including karate, skateboarding, surfing, and archery.
    Karate was the first one I tried. Here...

    First shown during the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct , Contra: Rogue Corps is a brand-new entry in the Contra series that has some pretty big differences from what fans might usually expect.
    Despite these differences, and having been directed by Nobuya Nakazato ( Contra III: The Alien Wars and Contra: Hard Corps ), it aims to be a worthy entry in the returning series.
    A Mad, Mad World
    Rogue Corps takes place after Contra III: The Alien Wars ; after the aliens have seemingly been defeated, a mysterious alien-infested city appears. Known to many as the Damned City, anyone who ventures into it goes...
