E3 2019

Two weeks from today, E3 will technically be kicking off. Nintendo has three tournaments scheduled for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Maker 2, and Splatoon 2 on June 8. Companies will also begin to hold conferences and presentations on June 9, with the much-anticipated Nintendo Direct planned for June 11. The E3 festivities will then continue through June 13.

We’re bound to get announcements throughout the entirety of E3 week, but the Nintendo Direct is when fans of the Big N will be paying attention in particular. Nintendo has said it will focus on software planned for Switch in 2019, but we’re bound to get a reveal or two. The spotlight should also be put on the likes of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Pokemon Sword/Shield, Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Astral Chain, and more.
