With the annual E3 event taking place one month from now we’ve already seen quite a few of the publishers announcing their dates and times for when fans can view their conferences. While Nintendo has already announced their plans to appear at this year’s E3, they have also announced their official schedule for the 3 day long event, including their E3 Direct showcase, Indie Treehouse and more.
First up on the schedule are a couple of Nintendo tournaments to start off the some friendly competition. Both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 team-based tournaments will be underway starting on June 8, 2019 at 11AM PT/2PM ET. Viewers can watch the events as they unfold at Nintendo’s E3 web page, as well as their Twitch and YouTube channels.
Next up is their big E3 2019 Direct showcase which will air on June 11, 2019 at 9AM PT/12PM ET. This will be the big reveal of upcoming Nintendo exclusives with potential in-depth looks at games, such as Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokemon Sword and Shield, and other surprise reveals to keep the Switch continuing its impressive library of exclusive titles. We’re also hoping to see more on titles like Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4, though we’re not exactly holding our breath.
And to kick off the indie line up for the Switch, the Nintendo Indie Treehouse event is scheduled to air between the dates of June 11-13, 2019, though exact times have yet to be announced. The Treehouse booth will showcase some of the best “Nindies” to land on the Switch console, which has been claimed to be one of the best places to enjoy indie titles. Stay tuned for more information on the Nintendo Treehouse E3 Livestream.
Lastly, for those in attendance there will also be plenty of Nintendo demos to try out on the show floor during the entirety of E3. While there will no doubt be tons of fans awaiting to try out these new demos, getting your hands on the free Nintendo Warp Pipe Pass will help negate the wait and offer them priority access to play the demos earlier than everyone else. More details are set to arrive later regarding how and when to get your hands on one of these passes. Stay tuned.
E3 is set to start up on June 11-13, 2019 which takes place in Los Angeles, California.
