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?

Let us know in the comments below.



  1. Not annoyed because history has taught us Nintendo isn’t that interested in E3. It will be annoying if they don’t announce more games though because the impression I get is that the Switch’s library could use a boost.
