Nintendo Details E3 2017 Plans

Nintendo has announced their plans for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

As we previously reported, the company is forgoing a traditional press conference for livestreams, game showcases, and so on. Their E3 festivities will kick off June 13th at 9 AM Pacific / 12 PM Eastern.

You can get all the new information below:

Nintendo’s E3 activities kick off Tuesday, June 13, at 9 a.m. PT with its Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 video presentation. Available to view live at, this presentation will offer more details about Super Mario Odyssey and other Nintendo Switch games, with a focus on games launching in 2017.

Immediately following Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017, Nintendo is once again bringing back Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3, a live-streamed showcase of upcoming games for Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Gameplay for all the featured games will be streamed from the E3 show floor June 13 to June 15 via, as well as on Nintendo’s channels on YouTube and Twitch. In addition to gameplay, the livestream will include behind-the-scenes info and commentary from game developers and members of the Nintendo Treehouse.

When Nintendo’s booth space opens at noon on June 13, show attendees will be among some of the first people in the world to get their hands on Super Mario Odyssey, as well as other games for Nintendo Switch. Super Mario Odyssey is Mario’s first sandbox-style game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.

In addition to all of these activities, Nintendo will also host game tournaments that will be live-streamed from the E3 show floor. The 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational splats onto the scene on June 13 and features Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch. Composed of four pre-qualified squid squads from the U.S., Japan, Europe and Australia/New Zealand, the tournament will find teams participating in the first-ever international Splatoon 2 competition. The second tournament, the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational, takes place on June 14 and will feature Nintendo’s upcoming ARMS fighting game for Nintendo Switch.

I am a research student with a history in psychology. I am a fan of tactical rpgs and I love to travel. I hope to one day be a clinical psychologist.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    So its basically what everyone was expecting.

  • DrearierSpider

    Alexander Brandon is composing the music for an unannounced Retro Studios game. I wanna hear more about that (hopefully we finally get another good Metroid game). Anything else is meaningless to me.

  • ProxyDoug

    I wonder how Bowser’s browser history looks like…

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    So the new Mario is set in New York and Bowser is getting married to Peach while Mario tries to stop it. I’m game.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    So Super Mario Odyssey and a bunch of poorly run tournaments. Aight fam.

    And apparently New Donk City is built over a skyscraper floating in the void.
    This game is fucking weird.

  • UnpluggedBeta

    The only Nintendo news I care about anymore is switch virtual console support; maybe they’ll announce a date here?

  • UnpluggedBeta

    “Princess abduction for dummies.”
    “100% real legal princesses!”

  • Cubed Grapes

    Nobody knows what sandbox games are anymore.

  • Nuku Nuku Natsume Mishima

    We are planing censor a lot of our games

  • Pilebunker

    It’s like how people think Skyrim is an RPG despite having no stats. Genres start to make less sense as publishers slap them onto games to rake in certain crowds while not actually realizing what makes said game that genre. Reminds me of this time when a guy told me Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Mordor was a fighting game because you fight people in it.
