Everything You Need To Know From the E3 Nintendo Direct [Liveblog]



Nintendo's E3 conference, which is really just a fancier Nintendo Direct presentation, is about to start. You can watch the stream with us, or just stick it out here for the rolling wave of oncoming announcements.

So far, we know that Nintendo will be focusing on the next Super Smash Bros game in their presentation.

As described, previously, their E3 plans are as follows:

Before the Expo opens its doors on Tuesday afternoon, Nintendo is hosting two days of high-level competition at the Belasco Theater in LA with the Splatoon 2World Championship tournamet. The tourney will take place on Monday June 11 and run from 3:30 – 6:00 pm PT. Teams from the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will be entering for their chance to make it to the finals, which will take place on Tuesday June 12th. Immediately following that will be the Super Smash Bros Invitational, which will pit players against each other in the recently announced Switch Smash Bros game.

If you decide to attend the tournaments on Tuesday and come dressed as your favorite Nintendo character, you 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. Additional details about how fans can attend in-person will be shared in the future.

At 9am PT on Tuesday, June 12, Nintendo will host a video presentation featuring all the games we can expect to see release this year, right after the presentation, Nintendo Treehouse: Live will start its regular programming of live gameplay, developer interviews, and insider looks at your favorite games.

Meanwhile, everyone else at home is going to be waiting for that Fortnite on Switch confirmation.

The stream is about to start, so kick back, relax, and enjoy the show.
