Nintendo’s E3 2017 plans – a summary of what they’re up to this year

Nintendo announced its plans for E3 2017 a few days ago. As we all know, they like to do their own thing at E3… and to be honest, in general. So in case you missed it, here’s a summary of what’s going on this year:

  • Nintendo will not have a big E3 stage presentation again, instead they will deliver their news via the ‘Nintendo Spotlight’ online video presentation on June 13th
  • This video presentation will focus on Switch games coming out this year, as well as an extensive look at Super Mario Odyssey – playable for the first time on the show floor as well
ARMS, coming out June 16th
  • Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 will return after the video presentation, it will focus on both Switch and 3DS games
  • Nintendo will also host two game tournaments: ‘The 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational’ and the ‘The 2017 ARMS Open Invitational’ that will take place on the 13th and 14th of June respectively

Are you annoyed that Nintendo won’t be holding a big E3 stage presentation, or are their online video presentations becoming the norm?
