During Nintendo’s quarterly investors’ meeting tonight, President Tatsumi Kimishima formally announced that Nintendo will not have a traditional press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though, as they have not held an E3 press conference for the past few years, instead focusing on Nintendo Direct presentations and the Nintendo Treehouse livestreams to showcase their software.
Kimishima did not elaborate further as to what exactly fans can expect from the Big N at E3, which will run from Tuesday, June 13th, to Thursday, June 15th. If previous years are any indication, one should expect a Nintendo Direct covering Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS titles due for release in 2017 and 2018, followed up by three full days of Treehouse livestreams to give fans a constant look at the gameplay of these titles.
There are no specific promises from the company just yet, but seeing as how E3 is already less than two months away, announcements regarding E3 plans are sure to come soon. Kimishima said to look out for more details from Nintendo of America in the near future.
