In preparation for the highly anticipated Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo has launched a site dedicated for its planned content and possible hardware releases.
The website went live after the Japanese video game company had announced that the global championships for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 will be held during E3 2019. Nintendo's statement implied that the portal will be populated with content related to the upcoming event, including that of new game announcements and tournament news.
"It's almost that time of year...and we're as excited as you are," Nintendo said. "Luckily, you can learn about all the newest game announcements, tournament news, and Nintendo's E3 plans right here, so stay tuned."
World Championship Tournaments At E3 2019
As of this writing, Nintendo's website contains the aforementioned announcements regarding the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 and Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019. Both of these world championship tournaments are slated for June 8.
The North America qualifying tournaments for Splatoon 2's NA Inkling Open 2019 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's NA Open 2019 Finals have just concluded.
New Game Releases, Hybrid Console Debut
New game announcements from the company are also highly anticipated. Back in E3 2018, Nintendo announced a number of title releases for its top-selling video game franchises such as Daemon X Machina and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna — The Golden Country. Nintendo also debuted the fantasy tactical role-playing game Fire Emblem Three Houses, the 16th main title in the Fire Emblem game series.
Furthermore, the Kyoto-based video game company put the Nintendo Switch on the spotlight last year. It introduced the first proper Super Smash Bros. title to the hybrid console, which, as most would have already guessed, is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The Mario Party franchise in the form of Super Mario Party was also announced for the Nintendo Switch. The biggest one perhaps is Fornite on Switch.
There were also a few releases for the Pokemon franchise, which saw the addition of Pokemon Quest and Pokemon Let's Go. If expectations are met, another Pokemon title should be announced during E3 this coming June.
It is not just title releases, however. If rumors are to be believed, Nintendo may be gearing up for the unveiling of a couple of new hybrid consoles, which is purported to be a smaller version of the Switch.
E3 2019 will begin on June 11 and end on June 13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
