E3 2017

E3 2017 is still a few months away, but preliminary floor plans are already online. Nintendo once again looks to have three booths in the West Hall. The big N is estimated to have reserved 32,000 sq ft total.

Here are a few other floor plans:


The Entertainment Software Association is making a big change to E3 this year. For the first time ever, the expo will be open to the public.

15,000 tickets will be available to all when tickets go on sale next Monday. Tickets will be priced at $250, though an early bird discount will bring it down to $150. Attendees will have access to the show floor, panel discussions, and other events from Tuesday through Thursday of E3 week. Geoff Keighley will be involved, and will offer access to special benefits associated with Keighley’s own E3 programming, such as developer interviews among other things.

E3 2017 will take place between June 13 and June 15.

Super Mario Odyssey was announced at the Switch presentation this past week, but Nintendo didn’t really go in-depth with the game. At E3, Nintendo will certainly have more to say. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told IGN that the title will be present at the expo.

When asked how Nintendo planned the news at the Switch presentation while still holding some announcements for E3, Reggie told IGN that some consideration was given to letting attendees at press events try out Super Mario Odyssey. In the end though, a decision was made to wait until June.

Reggie said:

“The only decision that was made from an E3 consideration standpoint was ‘do we show Super Mario Odyssey from a hands-on perspective today versus E3?’ And we’re going to show it at E3. But at least from a Nintendo perspective, there’s no other consideration that is driven by E3.”

Super Mario Odyssey comes out towards the end of this year, so I think many expected that the game would be present at E3. It definitely would have been odd to omit it.


At the end of each E3, we usually find out when the following year’s show will take place. That’s no different this time around. The ESA has made it known that E3 2017 will take place between June 13 and June 15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

As for this year’s E3, 50,300 people attended the expo. This is a 3.6 percent drop year-over-year. In 2015, 52,200 people attended E3.
