Nintendo Direct E3 2019 live stream, live blog

Posted on June 11, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News, Videos

The E3 2019 press conferences and presentations are closing out with a final broadcast from Nintendo. Today’s Nintendo Direct goes live at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM in the UK / 6 PM in Europe.

Nintendo has been quiet on what will be shown here aside from a focus on 2019 titles. That means you’ll likely be hearing more about games such as Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Pokemon Sword/Shield, and Astral Chain. A new announcement or two is probably in the cards as well.

We have a live stream for today’s Nintendo Direct below (which also includes activities for the first day Treehouse: Live), along with a live blog. Posts will also be made separately during and after the show.

One last thing before the direct ends…

A sequel to Breath of the Wild is now in development for Switch!

Well, that’s all! That was pretty insane, honestly. Huge amount of stuff coming to Switch, from blockbuster titles like Pokemon and Luigi’s Mansion to more unexpected games like Panzer Dragoon and Trials of Mana. It’s a bit disappointing that Animal Crossing got delayed, but what was shown still looks great and it’ll surely be worth with wait. And regardless, there’s still some amazing games coming this year. It’s incredible that Banjo and Kazooie are joining the fight in Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it’s crazy that The Witcher 3 is coming to Switch as well. Dragon Quest XI S will also be an amazing game as well, and it will be fun to play as The Hero in Smash Ultimate.

But what did you think about this direct? Let us know with a comment below. As always, thanks for tuning in!
