PostNintendo E3 2019 thread - Direct coming 11 June 5pm

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nintendo has outlined its plans for the E3 2019 video game trade show, which takes place June 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The weekend before the show includes two competitions featuring top players of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 games from around the world. Returning activities during the week include a Nintendo Direct presentation on the morning of June 11 and Nintendo Treehouse: Live—a daily livestream from E3 featuring live gameplay and in-depth analysis of games featured at E3. Nintendo will feature many playable Nintendo Switchgames at its booth, and a new Warp Pipe Pass will help transport people to a priority access part of lines for select games.

“We’re starting with some heated competitions and delivering new content the whole week,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Whether people are attending the show in person or watching from home, our goal is to provide them with the best possible Nintendo experience.”

Some of Nintendo’s activities at E3 2019 include:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 Tournaments: The team-based Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 and the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 tournaments will take place on Saturday, June 8, at The Theatre at Ace Hotel at 929 S. Broadway St. in Los Angeles. Both events will feature players from North America, Europe, Japan and Australia/New Zealand. The line for entry starts forming at 8 a.m. in front of The Theatre at Ace Hotel. Fans who want to catch the competitions in person can gain free entry after receiving an event badge in line on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 10 a.m. and competition is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. People who prefer to watch the competitions online can visit https://e3.nintendo.com/ and Nintendo’s channels on Twitch and YouTube. Nintendo will communicate additional details about these tournaments at a later time.

After battling their way through more than 11,000 players in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019, the winning team of Wrath, Devonte and Poltergust will represent North America against teams from Europe, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.

The team of FTWIN showcased its elite splat skills in the Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 by toppling some of the most experienced Splatoon 2 squads across all of North America. The team will be looking to continue its winning streak against some of the top teams from Europe, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.

Nintendo Direct E3 2019: The presentation will begin at 9 a.m. PT on June 11. Viewers can watch it by visiting https://e3.nintendo.com/. The presentation, which focuses entirely on software, will offer a look at games scheduled to launch in 2019.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live: The livestream hosted by Nintendo of America’s Treehouse staff right from Nintendo’s E3 booth returns to give viewers a deeper look into select games, along with commentary by those who know the games best. People can view the livestream at https://e3.nintendo.com/. Additional details about Nintendo Treehouse: Live will be announced at a later date.

Warp Pipe Pass: As always, Nintendo will have a variety of games to play in its booth. People who are attending the E3 2019 show can reduce the amount of time they wait in line for select Nintendo games by reserving a free Warp Pipe Pass, which will allow them to gain priority access in line during their designated time to line up and play. A Nintendo Account is required to sign up and reserve a Warp Pipe Pass. Nintendo will communicate additional details about how and when to reserve a pass at a later date.

Focusing entirely on software I see...

Would be nice to get some surprises, the line up for this year has been good but not great from my perspective - a couple of extra big hitters would be nice to see on the horizon.

Yep I’m hoping for some surprises too, to end the year with a bang. I think we have a great year ahead already, but not a great ‘all Nintendo’s resources working on one machine’ year. Not yet.

Out of the games we know about, this year it’s Luigi's Mansion. Next year it’ll be Metroid.

Like I said in the other thread, 5 is meh for me, since I usually work until 6 and will be putting in some extra hours because new job. No live E3 chat for me this year. :(

As I mentioned in the Switch thread the direct should fall on my Tuesday off, really hard to call what I’m looking forward to the most though.... definitely between Pokémon Sword/Shield and Animal Crossing though.

I've come to really enjoy a lot of the Treehouse streams too. Hoping we get more info shed on Animal Crossing on there if it's being shown.

I've said it before, but I'm expecting four showings of the new Animal Crossing and two for Sword/Shield. I've always enjoyed the Treehouse streams, but last year's felt bad due to the anticipation of having to sit through another Smash segment. I've got a feeling it'll be more like in 2017, though, hence the above four and two expectation for those two games [since the highlight game gets double the segments of nearly every other game].

Very much doubt we’ll see Metroid next year considering it went into production this year.

I do hope a secret 2D Metroid is on the cards though.

It's a shame that it looks like we won't see anything about an upgraded Switch as I'm pretty confident that will be my jumping in point.

New 3DS was announced in August 2014, a couple of months after E3, so there's still hope of seeing the Switch "lite" version soon.

Most rumours were pointing to that being a 2020 launch anyway

I’m kind of glad they’re focusing on games rather than new hardware at E3, after all games sell the consoles so having a stronger library of games will mean when a Switch revision does arrive (if it does of course) it should get off to a strong start if its priced well.

Fair enough talk a lot about hardware if its kicking off a new generation for the company but partway through software should take priority.

New F-Zero please.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I don’t think we’ll see Metroid Prime 4 in 2021 let alone 2020.

I’m sure we have a 2D Metroid coming soon though.

I’m thinking they will announce that SNES games are coming the NSO service and will that they will launch straight after the Direct.

I think this year is set in terms of what software Nintendo are releasing (Maybe one Wii U port like Pikmin 3) but we may see more third party announcements and perhaps 1 or 2 teases towards Nintendo’s software plans for 2020.

I think next year we will see either a new 3D Mario or 3D Zelda that will be ready to launch around the time the new consoles arrive.
