Nintendo Lays Out 2019 E3 Plans Are we getting a floor show this year?


Nintendo has detailed some of its 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) plans in its latest financial report. Nintendo will once again take the path it has blazed the past few years, skipping a dedicated large-scale floor show and instead show a prerecorded video presentation, aka a Nintendo Direct release.

This Nintendo Direct presentation will lay out Nintendos plans for the upcoming fiscal year, including game releases. Nintendo will, however, have a floor presence, as they have in recent years, providing hands-on opportunities for players to try out their products.

Nintendo President, Shuntaro Furukawa directly commented on rumors of plans to unveil a new Switch model at this year’s E3, by saying:

“As a general rule, we’re always working on new hardware and we will announce it when we are able to sell it,” Furukawa told reporters in Osaka. “But we have no plans to announce that at this year’s E3 in June.”

The world championship tournaments for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ad Splatoon 2 will also be held in June, on the 8’th, right before the start of this year’s E3 conference.

As always, any of this information could change before the E3 conference, so stay tuned for more information about Nintendos plans. What do you think of this year’s E3 plans? Do you like the Nintendo Direct style presentations? Let us know in the comments, or over on Twitter.

I grew up on the Atari, Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Genesis. I started my love affair with gaming with Mario, as most kids do, and continued it with Dragon Warrior(Dragon Quest for those who don't know history). Some of my favorite games growing up were the simplest, with Adventure for the Atari 2600 being one of the games I had the most fun with. Still to this day I enjoy that game, and those duck looking dragons. Today I play a variety of games when my mind will let me, which comes in spurts. Right now I am playing a bit of Minecraft.
