Today, E3 saw the end of presently scheduled press conferences with Nintendo’s latest Direct presentation. Nintendo Directs, for those who don’t know, are pre-recorded videos that Nintendo puts out every few months to explain what games they’re making and when we may see them. Usually, they come out every quarter or so, and focus on the most immediate games Nintendo is working on, with a good amount of announcements thrown in, too. For E3, these are followed up by Treehouse livestreams, which go in depth on specific Nintendo games with the staff and press, and sometimes feature announcements of their own.
This year’s E3 Nintendo Direct was frontloaded with announcements of new games, and more in depth information of games we’ve heard about before – culminating in a deep dive into the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and what exactly makes it distinct from previous Smash Bros games, and which characters will be in it.
On the whole, this will be a lighter list than the last couple days, but important nonetheless. There are also a few scattered announcements here and there to catalog as well. As the rest of the week is opened up to press and consumers alike to get their hands on many of the games talked about already, there won’t be much in the way of news – so stay tuned at the end of the week for the Master Post, that puts every single announcement from this E3 into one post. See you then!
