Nintendo‘s E3 details have been announced and it features some interesting news for Smash Bros. While we already knew that Nintendo’s E3 Direct presentation was due to stream on June 12, we now have some more concrete details about what Nintendo will be up to across next week.
The finer details of the company’s E3 has been officially announced, with its presence at E3 beginning before its Direct stream, as the Splatoon 2 World Championship opening rounds kicking off on Monday, June 11. The tournament will end at some stage yet to be announced during June 12. So don’t get cooked and stay off the hook if you want to keep fresh, Inklings.
The next day is the big one. On June 12, Nintendo is delivering its much anticipated E3 Direct. This will give us our first proper look at the new Super Smash Bros Switch alongside other Switch games due for release this year. Interestingly, however, Nintendo still has not given us a name for the new Smash Bros. I guess we’ll have to wait and see with that one. My guess? Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch (I am one for creativity).
Nintendo E3 2018: It’s Not Only Smash Bros Switch
That’s right. Not content with a Splatoon 2 World Championship and Direct presentation, Nintendo has even more up its sleeves for us eager fans. Immediately after the Direct, Nintendo Treehouse: Live kicks in. This kicks off three days of unedited extended gameplay footage and discussion from developers and Nintendo staff members. This will begin with the new Smash Bros. game.
As soon as the Splatoon 2 World Championship end, a Super Smash Bros Invitational will begin. This will be another opportunity to see the new Smash in action, with professional players getting their hands on the game for the first time.
While there is still no mention of an official title for the new Smash or any mention of the 3DS, it’s an exciting time to be a Switch owner, that’s for sure.
