Isabelle is in Smash Ultimate, Animal Crossing is on Nintendo Switch

Sakurai is sure having a fun time with these Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveals. Today's direct concluded with a a bit of a tease for Animal Crossing fans.

She's the newest fighter (not an echo) in what is definitely the most ambitious cross-over ever. C...

When Nintendo stopped doing a traditional press conference at E3 a few years back, it was met with some rather harsh criti...
