Nintendo E3 2018 Plans Revealed

The E3 2018 Nintendo Presentation is on June 12.

Nintendo announced its plans for the E3 2018. The announcement is likely holding back some surprises, but Nintendo says that they will not present any games that launch not in 2018 at the E3. Many hope for a Pokemon RPG game for the Switch announcement at the E3 2018.

We will know at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 12, if a new Pokemon games comes the Switch in 2018. Nintendo will debut its E3 2018 video presentation featuring games releasing in 2018, including the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch at that time.

Right after the presentation, Nintendo Treehouse: Live | E3 2018 will begin three days of live gameplay, appearances by developers and an insider look at games, starting with the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo will kick off E3 2018 with two days of high-level competitive action at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. On Monday, June 11, from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. PT, qualifying teams representing the United States/Canada, Japan, Europe and Australia/New Zealand will ink their way to glory in the opening rounds of the Splatoon 2 World Championship tournament.

The finals will take place the following day on Tuesday, June 12, immediately followed by the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament, which will pit invited players against each other in the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. A few fans who come dressed as their favorite Nintendo character on June 12 may be chosen to play the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game on stage in exhibition play. Tickets will be issued on-site at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles each day of the event.

June 12-14, visitors to Nintendo’s booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center will be able to play a variety of games, including the recently announced Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. Additionally, some of the most noteworthy upcoming third-party games on Nintendo Switch will be featured across several Nintendo activities throughout the week.

Streaming content will be shown live at the Nintendo NY store, starting on June 11 with the Splatoon 2 World Championship opening rounds. And June 12-15, visitors to the store will be among the first to play a selection of games shown at Nintendo’s booth during E3.

“Every year we take a look at E3 and craft the best experience for our fans, regardless of whether they are attending the show or watching from afar,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We expect that each of our E3 activities will give an additional boost to the already strong momentum enjoyed by Nintendo Switch.”

Nintendo will announce more details about E3 2018 in the coming weeks. Nintendo just released its fiscal year results with a stunning rise in profits. The company sold 17.79 million Nintendo Switch consoles since the launch of the console.
