Obviously, the highlights of the offering will be the demo version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon: Lets' Go, as well as the chance to experience the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit and a "Fortnite-themed photo experience," because, you know, Fortnite is all the rave with kids right now.
Additional games Nintendo makes note of are the constantly selling Mario Kart 8, as well as Just Dance 2019 and Overcooked 2. Both version of Pokemon: Let's Go --- Pikachu and Eevee -- will be playable with the Poke Ball Plus accessory.
