It’s been a wild few days at E3 and we’ve got a few more items of news to share.

Asmodee Digital is Headed to Console
As we’ve reported, two Asmodee titles are making their way to console this year: Ticket to Ride on PS4 and Carcassonne on Switch.

In the Nintendo Direct at E3 we caught a brief glimpse of the game. Check it out in this video featuring Nintendo’s 2018 lineup. It lists the release as Holiday 2018.

Super Mario Party
On Tuesday, Nintendo revealed Super Mario Party, the next in their long running digital board game series.

It looks like they’ve walked back a lot of the poor choices they made in the last installment. It also appears they’ve added one of the most interesting modes from the latest 3DS version that gives players more control on their turn.

Check out the trailer from E3

A Few More Nintendo Tidbits
The Nintendo presentation included a few more interesting games.

One user in my last E3 post wanted to make sure we mentioned Killer Queen Black. This competitive multiplayer game has a bit of cult following and several win conditions, which is unique for the genre.

Fire Emblem is a strategy series that will feel just like home for any board game player. A version of the Nintendo Switch is in the works and it looks like its bring a bunch of new changes. Check out the trailer:

Octopath Traveler was announced when the Switch was first revealed. It is a Square Enix RPG that features a classic style with a twist. On top of the look, it is adopting an interesting structure following one of 8 unique characters. I’ve been skeptical on this title in the past, but the latest showing has me wanting to give it another shot. Check out the latest trailer.
