Nintendo has officially revealed their plans prior to the long-awaited E3 2019, and it appears as though more than just a Direct is around the corner. While PlayStation will be giving this year a miss, will Microsoft steal the show or will the Big N give them a run for their money?
How to Watch Nintendo E3 2019 Livestreams
Those who are not attending and wish to watch the surprises unveil live, you can do so on their official social media platforms. We’ve embeded their official Twitch channel below.
E3 2019 is scheduled to kick off from Tuesday, June 11 to Friday, June 14. Nintendo is set to host an array of different events prior to the event, so let’s take a look at what these are.
Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019
To kick off the show, Nintendo will be hosting the official Splatoon 2 World Championship. Although this won’t be appealing to some, many who are interested in the competitive side of things won’t want to miss this.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3
Set to begin on June 8th, this event will start following the conclusion of the Splatoon 2 World Championship. While the Splatoon 2 Championship is scheduled to take place directly prior to this competition, the timing can be subject to change depending on its outcome.
This is another event which will take on an integral part within the competitive scene of Nintendo, similar to the Splatoon 2 World Championship.
Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational
Another competitive event Nintendo is hosting is the Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational. This will allow four members of the community to get hands-on with the game on June 8th, prior to its release.
E3 2019 Nintendo Direct Date
Most importantly, Nintendo will be hosting a new Direct presentation. Nintendo has already confirmed that this will provide a sneak peek at upcoming Switch games. There has not yet been any confirmation as to what exactly these will include, however. We do have our suspicions, which you can keep an eye out for in the near future.
The Direct will be taking place from June 11 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST. Nintendo hasn’t confirmed how long it will last as of yet. Previous directs have usually aired for roughly 30 – 40 minutes, however.
Nintendo Treehouse: Live
The annual Treehouse showcase is also on the horizon for E3 2019. Tune in to 3 days of Nintendo Switch gameplay of upcoming titles, courtesy of developers and members of the event.
Nintendo Treehouse will be a wrap of E3 2019 for the Big N, starting on June 11.
