Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Reggie says Nintendo will “have a big E3 this year”, showcasing games for both Switch and 3DS


You never quite know what you’ll get out of Nintendo from E3. A few years ago, the big N ditched conferences on stage in favor of Digital Events. In 2016, they scrapped its usual pre-recorded presentation entirely and had Zelda: Breath of the Wild as its only playable game.

So what’s in store for this year? Going off of a new statement from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, who recently spoke with Fox News, fans can expect “a big E3”. In addition to games for Switch, Nintendo will be showing what it has in store for 3DS.

Reggie’s full words:


“E3 is always a big time for Nintendo. We look at each E3 as a unique opportunity to tell our story. And we’re gonna have a big E3 this year. We’re going to be showcasing a variety of games. We will have experiences for… consumers will be able to attend the show for the very first time. So I’m not gonna tell you all of the various games and all of our little secrets for E3, but I can tell you that E3 is going to be a major opportunity for us to showcase not only Nintendo Switch, but also content coming to Nintendo 3DS.”

Going off of past years, we can probably look forward to hours of live streams from the Nintendo Treehouse. That has been a staple of Nintendo’s E3 plans since 2014.

Wonderful job at quoting, FOX.

I must say, FOX News & Reggie are a glorious duo. I'll believe it when I see it.

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

I kinda hope they go back to pre-recorded presentations, they're really good at those and their live presentations can be kind of... eh... cringe-inducing? :D

Really excited for the E3 this year though, both for Nintendo and the Scorpio. I imagine Sony will unleash a new wave of exclusives as well lol

I expect a new Reggie meme from e3 pre-presentation video like Reggienator and Reggie training on academy ( remember the legendary phrase by Reggie " Hey Bill, You Fired " ).

isnt the first post launch E3 of any console rather big?

He always has to be positive about what Nintendo has in store, but this time there's no reason to doubt him. We already know of Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and with these three games alone it's already going to be a promising showcase. The only 2018 game we know is Fire Emblem of which nothing has been shown so far. There are obviously more games for 2018 and E3 will be the time to show some of them.

Oh, and a Super Smash Bros. 4 port is going to launch this holiday season, because Nintendo is going to charge for online multiplayer, so all the big multiplayer games need to be on Switch as soon as possible.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wii Music 2 inbound! HYPE! TBH I am very nervous because almost every time Nintendo has a very good E3 they have a terrible one after. Last years was pretty good.

That's what I'm expecting

It needs to be, following the launch of the Switch.. hopefully something that is really exciting will be announced

Oh god. If we're gonna have a suit up on stage running his or her mouth, I'm tuning out. I probably won't even bother to begin with, depending on how I'm feeling at the time.

Looking forward to catching some of the Treehouse though.
