Nintendo Announces E3 Direct Date and Time

Recommended Videos

Nintendo announced earlier that they will have an E3 presentation this year, something that video game fans have learned to not take for granted after Sony revealed last year that PlayStation will not have a presence at E3 2019. At the time, Nintendo didn’t announce specifically when their E3 2019 presentation would be, but these details have been revealed now.

Nintendo recently announced that their E3 Direct will take place during the company’s usual E3 presentation time slot, the morning the event officially kicks off. This year, that means that it’ll begin at 9:00am PST/12:00pm EST on Tuesday, June 11. This Direct is described as containing information on upcoming Switch games, so, as has been typical for a while now, don’t expect any 3DS news. In addition to the Direct presentation, Nintendo’s other E3 plans include hosting the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 starting at 11:00am PST/2:00pm EST on June 8, hosting the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 starting at 2:00pm PST/5:00pm EST on June 8, and Nintendo Treehouse: Live coverage of E3 following the Direct presentation.

Nintendo is the last major company to announce its E3 time slot. Other companies that will have press conferences at the event include Microsoft, whose E3 presentation is slated for 1:00pm PST/4:00pm EST on Sunday, June 9, Bethesda at 5:30pm PST/8:30pm EST on June 9, Ubisoft at 1:00pm PST/4:00pm EST on Monday, June 10, and Square Enix at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST on June 10. Both EA and Sony will not have press conferences at E3, with the former focusing more on playable demoes at their own EA Play event and the latter skipping E3 altogether.
