Press release:

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nintendo is returning to the E3 video game trade show in June with fan-favorite activities and new features to keep watchers around the world and attendees in Los Angeles engaged and having fun. As in recent years, Nintendo will focus its E3 activities on games coming soon, with a special spotlight given to a key headlining title: the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game coming to the Nintendo Switch system this year. Games launching beyond 2018 will be featured at a later date.

The festivities kick off with two days of high-level competitive action at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. On Monday, June 11, from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. PT, qualifying teams representing the United States/Canada, Japan, Europe and Australia/New Zealand will ink their way to glory in the opening rounds of the Splatoon 2 World Championship tournament. The finals will take place the following day on Tuesday, June 12, immediately followed by the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament, which will pit invited players against each other in the recently announced Super Smash Bros.game for Nintendo Switch. A few fans who come dressed as their favorite Nintendo character on June 12 may be chosen to play the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game on stage in exhibition play. Tickets will be issued on-site at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles each day of the event. Additional details about how fans can attend in-person will be shared in the future. All the action from both days will be streamed live on https://e3.nintendo.com, YouTube and Twitch.

At 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 12, Nintendo will debut a video presentation* featuring games releasing in 2018, including the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. Right after the presentation, Nintendo Treehouse: Live | E3 2018 will begin three days of live gameplay, appearances by developers and an insider look at games, starting with the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. Everyone can watch the video presentation and Nintendo Treehouse: Live | E3 2018 at https://e3.nintendo.com, YouTube and Twitch.

June 12-14, visitors to Nintendo’s booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center will be able to play a variety of games, including the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. Additionally, some of the most noteworthy upcoming third-party games on Nintendo Switch will be featured across several Nintendo activities throughout the week.

Streaming content will be shown live at the Nintendo NY store, starting on June 11 with the Splatoon 2 World Championship opening rounds. And June 12-15, visitors to the store will be among the first to play a selection of games shown at Nintendo’s booth during E3.

“Every year we take a look at E3 and craft the best experience for our fans, regardless of whether they are attending the show or watching from afar,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We expect that each of our E3 activities will give an additional boost to the already strong momentum enjoyed by Nintendo Switch.”

Additional details about Nintendo’s presence at E3 2018 will be shared in the coming weeks. For the latest updates, keep an eye on https://e3.nintendo.com.

 

 

Looks like its what they normally do. I love there style of E3, its so direct and streamlined. Plus the treehouse streams are great, I'm excited to see what they have to show. I'm kind of disappointed to hear that there is no games from 2019 though. Maybe they'll sneak one or 2 in like they did last year.

Early predictions:

super smash bros blowout, coming in september with online service

Fire Emblem Switch reveal (going off the recent rumors)

Fortnite coming to Switch 

Animal Crossing revealed, with fall release date

Yoshi 2018 release date

that's all I have for now



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Cool, I'll be sure to rely on you guys to fill me in on the highlights.

my bad, I accidentally submitted before even typing anything lol.......its fixed now.

Although, its not a bad idea to set the expectations so low that's its impossible to get disappointed.

Cool! I'm looking forward to seeing Audrey whatever new games they have in stock! Hopefully we'll get trailers for both Metroid Prime 4 and Retro's new game, and perhaps news about Monolith's next project?

Indeed. I'm expecting to get a cold from the conference so it should be a good conference.

2020 is the soonest that comes out imo. doubt we will hear anything since this is suppose to  be 2018 only.

Which also brings the questions... If this is truly 2018 only..... does that mean no Metriod Prime 4 news.... If we get no news here, I doubt we would hear about it again until an early 2019 direct at the earliest. Long drought on news for the  game at that point.

I missed that part. Well that's a bummer. While I understand why they'd focus on 2018 titles I don't see the point in limiting the presentation to games releasing in the next 6-7 months. We got a teaser for Metroid Prime 4 last E3 and I think it'd be quite the disappointment if the game gets no mention in this years presentation.

I think the key phrase there is 'featuring games releasing in 2018'.  During the 2017 Digital Spotlight, the only games that were 'featured' in the sense that they were given more than 1½ minutes of air time were Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2 and the BotW DLC; all of which were released in 2017.   I assume Nintendo will keep the same format this year where Smash Bros, Fire Emblem and maybe one more game will get high-production three minute trailers while everything else like smaller titles, 3rd party releases and 2019 reveals get 1-1½ min trailers.

I'm sure they'll at least have 1 or 2 surprises for 2019, I hope...

Then again, what do we know about the 2nd half of the year for their line up? The only think I can think of is Smash Bros. So there could be some really nice surprises at their E3 showing this year.
