E3 2020

Hello, my beautiful sewer babies! This week on NEP, our big talk is on E3. With Sony gone (for good probably) but Nintendo still attending, Oni Dino and Galen take a look at the burning question: Is E3’s importance waning? There’s a lot of elements at play on both the consumer side and the business side, and we throw our hats into the ring. Plus, we’re talking mixed first impressions on Persona 5 Scrambled Eggs, Fire Emblem: Three Houses wave 4 DLC: Cindered Shadows, the Sonic film’s release (with a shocking mention of Pee Wee Herman) and generally unhealthy mindsets in the gaming community—a discussion sparked by… you guessed it: Pokemon Sword and Shield. Let’s Gaming!

One could argue that E3 is in a state of flux with certain companies such as Sony deciding not to attend, the transition to make it a more consumer-focused event, and the ESA needing to gain back trust after it pulled a series of blunders including leaking information about members of the media in 2019. Still, the show goes on, and preparations are underway.

Like previous years, Nintendo will be attending this year’s expo. “Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020, including Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda Softworks, SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., and Warner Bros. Games, among others,” the ESA said in a statement.


We’re still several months away from E3 2020, but Limited Run Games has already confirmed its presence for the show. The company will air its annual press conference on June 8.

It will be hosted at the following times:

With E3 2019 starting to wrap up, we do actually have a little bit of news about next year’s show. E3 2020 will take place between June 9 and June 11. Once again, it will be a three-day affair.
