Nintendo will have a massive stall this year. The Nintendo Treehouse team is promising regular video updates. The Nintendo Treehouse team revealed a lot of new information last year. And now they are also starting the Nintendo World Championships. The tournament will however be only open to US players.
Nintendo said that these regional events will be held all across America. Fans will compete in Super Smash Bros. Mario Kart 8 will also be one of the games at the event. The Finale will be in LA and that will be on June 14.
The users will get to see the tournament from their homes. You should not expect any new Nintendo smartphone games or info on the Nintendo NX console. Nintendo have clarified beforehand that they would not be talking about any of this in the event.
The E3 event will begin on June 16th but the first media briefing by Nintendo will be on June 14th. Nintendo also said that the gameplay from new titles will also be streamed through Treehouse Live stream from the E3 floor.

“Whether you’re tuning in online or joining us at the show, we want to include fans of all ages this E3 with an innovative and nostalgic focus on fun,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “I’m especially eager to bring back the Nintendo World Championships and to crown the 2015 Nintendo World Champion.”
