We’re just about to enter the madness of gaming events. Summer Game Fest is happening again, E3 is back, and Gamescom will be held digitally in August.

Unlike last year, most of the major events will take place over the span of a couple of weeks – starting in just a few days from now. Beyond that though, a few extra ones are planned for later in the summer.

We’ve rounded up notable gaming events that have a chance of offering Nintendo-related news below. The schedule will be updated as needed.

E3 is back after a year off, but Summer Game Fest – which was started last year by The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley – will be returning regardless. Fresh information about the event was shared today.

Summer Game Fest officially begins on June 10 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM in the UK / 8 PM in Europe. The initial broadcast will feature “a spectacular live world premiere showcase, with a performance by Weezer, Day of the Devs and more”.

Partners for Summer Game Fest 2021 include:

Following the cancellation of E3 last year in light of the coronavirus pandemic, The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighly stepped forward and held Summer Game Fest as one way of replacing the show. It’s now set to return for a second year.

Unlike in 2020, it sounds like Summer Game Fest will be held only in June this time around. That change appears to be a direct response to criticism that last year’s event was too long having taken place over multiple months.

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.

VGC is reporting that “the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) is pushing forward with plans for a digital event this summer, but it still requires the backing of major games companies.” Although the physical event has not yet been cancelled, “it’s understood that the digital show is now the focus for E3 2021, due to ongoing restrictions around the coronavirus pandemic.”

This year’s E3 would include the following:

Organizers behind Summer Game Fest have announced the lineup of games that will be featured as part of a Developer Showcase on June 22. Some Switch-related titles are included such as Sea of Stars and Panzer Paladin.

Here’s some additional information about the event:

Summer Game Fest today announced the addition of two Developer Showcase events. The digital presentations, which have been curated by the Day of the Devs team and Geoff Keighley (The Game Awards), will be held on June 22 and July 20. Both live streams will offer gameplay, news, and musical performances.

The initial group of participating developers and publishers confirmed for the showcases include:

The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley has announced Summer Game Fest, a digital “industry-wide celebration of video games”. Fans can expect “breaking news, in-game events, and free playable content” from various publishers and developers. The Verge reports that “Keighley will act as both curator and host for pre- and post-shows” for several companies, including Bethesda, Square Enix, and more.

Keighley said in a statement:
