Nintendo To Release Major Direct for E3 2021, Reports Indicate

Nintendo will be taking part in the recently-announced E3 2021, with reports suggesting a major Direct showcase is incoming.

Last year, popular gaming event E3 was unfortunately shut down, thanks to the ongoing global pandemic. Since there wasn’t enough time to prepare, this meant that all shows were effectively cancelled, and developers were forced to make their reveals separately.

Seeing as we were right on the cusp of a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S reveal, this was a major disappointment to fans everywhere. And this year, it doesn’t look like we’ll have the same issues.

Yes, COVID-19 is still an active threat, but the event organizers aren’t about to let their show be taken away for a second year. Now, with an online-only E3 incoming in 2021, gamers can stream the event for free – with no danger.

And reports indicate that Nintendo has quite the Direct to showcase for us at E3 2021.

What Will Nintendo Reveal at E3 2021?

Many fans are already wondering what exactly Nintendo will reveal at E3 2021. After all, there are some exciting new projects in the works at the Japanese video game conglomerate.

Although Jeff Grub at Venture Beat reveals “another full-scale general Direct showcase” is on the way, we wonder what that entails.

Perhaps most essential is the long-overdue reveal of the 4K Nintendo Switch Pro which recently leaked. Games-wise, there’s sure to be a lot of people hoping for more information about Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Nintendo’s open-world, Breath of the Wild-style Pokemon game is the cause of a lot of online hype. So much so that it rivals that of the upcoming Breath of the Wild 2. But that’s not the only new Pokemon game on the way!

Speaking of Zelda, we actually do have a release date leak for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

There’s even a Splatoon 3 release date leaking early. And we’re definitely eager to see more reveals for Nintendo’s squid-based shooter.

E3’s digital showcase will commence on June 12 and run until June 15. We’re expecting a number of exciting reveals, especially as Nintendo is joined by Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, and more.

It looks like Sony is skipping E3 again this year. Perhaps the publisher is instead setting up PlayStation’s next State of Play event for its own reveals.
