Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there was no E3 last year. We did see some scattershot announcements throughout the summer, but it was pretty disorganized and we didn’t have a traditional gaming event. It even took Nintendo more than a year to produce a traditional Nintendo Direct.

E3 is finally back in 2021, though not completely in the way we’ve grown accustomed to. Since it’ll be digital only, many companies are planning online presentations. Several big companies have confirmed that they’ll be involved in some form. As far as Nintendo news is concerned, we’re most interested in the Big N itself, though we’ll be keeping an eye on the likes of Capcom, Ubisoft, Square Enix, Bandai Namco, XSEED Games / Marvelous, Warner Bros. Games, and Koch Media.

E3 starts on June 12, so we’re less than a month away from the big event. What are your hopes and dreams for the show? Is there anything you’d personally like to see be announced? Let us know in the comments below.

With E3 2021 just a few weeks away, another set of companies have been confirmed for the big digital event. Notable names include Bandai Namco, SEGA, Square Enix, and XSEED.

For the past couple of decades, E3 has been the biggest gaming event of the year. Publishers and developers come together to show off games with media events, playable demos, and more. But like most major events, E3 was scrapped last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The show is now hoping to make a partial return in 2021.
