With the recent launch of the Switch, Nintendo’s plans for E3 are a bit more impor­tant than pre­vi­ous years. 

Just like past years Nin­ten­do will not have a pre­sen­ta­tion, but will have a pres­ence at E3. Their booth will be focused on Super Mario Odyssey and where it will be playable for the first time. Along­side Mario Odyssey will be Spla­toon 2 and Arms. Tour­na­ments for both games will also be held and live streamed to the gen­er­al pub­lic. The Spla­toon 2 tour­na­ment will be held first on June 13th and an Arms tour­na­ment will held the next day on June 14th. 

Nin­ten­do will focus on titles that will launch this year rather than future titles. They will out­line these games with their “Nin­ten­do High­lights” video. Here is what Nin­ten­do of Amer­i­ca Pres­i­dent and COO Reg­gie Fils-Aime had to say about Nintendo’s E3 plans:

Our var­i­ous E3 activ­i­ties will show­case the next steps for Nin­ten­do Switch, from a sum­mer of social com­pet­i­tive gam­ing to a hol­i­day sea­son high­light­ed by a mile­stone Mario adven­ture. With Nin­ten­do Tree­house: Live at E3, fans at home can watch in-depth game­play of Nin­ten­do Switch and Nin­ten­do 3DS games launch­ing this year.”

All of Nintendo’s E3 events can be seen on their web­site, Twitch and YouTube
