- Nintendo has a gaggle of huge games coming to its wildly popular Switch throughout the rest of 2019.
- I played all of them at the video game industry's big event last week, E3 2019, including the next major games in the "Pokémon" and "Legend of Zelda" franchises.
- In a surprising twist, the most fun I had with any game in Nintendo's huge lineup was one starring Mario's goofy brother Luigi.

Nintendo's games at E3 2019 highlighted the massive Nintendo Switch lineup coming in the back half of the year, but there were three standouts. The first is "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening," a re-make of a classic Game Boy game.
