"The presentation, which focuses entirely on software, will offer a look at games scheduled to launch in 2019."


Also, for those attending:


Warp Pipe Pass: As always, Nintendo will have a variety of games to play in its booth. People who are attending the E3 2019 show can reduce the amount of time they wait in line for select Nintendo games by reserving a free Warp Pipe Pass, which will allow them to gain priority access in line during their designated time to line up and play. A Nintendo Account is required to sign up and reserve a Warp Pipe Pass. Nintendo will communicate additional details about how and when to reserve a pass at a later date.

Good to see they're doing something about the massive lines they usually get, the Warp Pipe Pass sounds like a good idea

REDMOND, Wash., May 9, 2019 – Nintendo has outlined its plans for the E3 2019 video game trade show, which takes place June 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The weekend before the show includes two competitions featuring top players of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 games from around the world. Returning activities during the week include a Nintendo Direct presentation on the morning of June 11 and Nintendo Treehouse: Live—a daily livestream from E3 featuring live gameplay and in-depth analysis of games featured at E3. Nintendo will feature many playable Nintendo Switch games at its booth, and a new Warp Pipe Pass will help transport people to a priority access part of lines for select games.


“We’re starting with some heated competitions and delivering new content the whole week,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Whether people are attending the show in person or watching from home, our goal is to provide them with the best possible Nintendo experience.”


Some of Nintendo’s activities at E3 2019 include:


  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 Tournaments: The team-based Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 and the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 tournaments will take place on Saturday, June 8, at The Theatre at Ace Hotel at 929 S. Broadway St. in Los Angeles. Both events will feature players from North America, Europe, Japan and Australia/New Zealand. The line for entry starts forming at 8 a.m. in front of The Theatre at Ace Hotel. Fans who want to catch the competitions in person can gain free entry after receiving an event badge in line on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 10 a.m. and competition is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. People who prefer to watch the competitions online can visit https://e3.nintendo.com/ and Nintendo’s channels on Twitch and YouTube. Nintendo will communicate additional details about these tournaments at a later time.

    • After battling their way through more than 11,000 players in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019, the winning team of Wrath, Devonte and Poltergust will represent North America against teams from Europe, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.

    • The team of FTWIN showcased its elite splat skills in the Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 by toppling some of the most experienced Splatoon 2 squads across all of North America. The team will be looking to continue its winning streak against some of the top teams from Europe, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.

  • Nintendo Direct E3 2019: The presentation will begin at 9 a.m. PT on June 11. Viewers can watch it by visiting https://e3.nintendo.com/. The presentation, which focuses entirely on software, will offer a look at games scheduled to launch in 2019.

  • Nintendo Treehouse: Live: The livestream hosted by Nintendo of America’s Treehouse staff right from Nintendo’s E3 booth returns to give viewers a deeper look into select games, along with commentary by those who know the games best. People can view the livestream at https://e3.nintendo.com/. Additional details about Nintendo Treehouse: Live will be announced at a later date.

  • Warp Pipe Pass: As always, Nintendo will have a variety of games to play in its booth. People who are attending the E3 2019 show can reduce the amount of time they wait in line for select Nintendo games by reserving a free Warp Pipe Pass, which will allow them to gain priority access in line during their designated time to line up and play. A Nintendo Account is required to sign up and reserve a Warp Pipe Pass. Nintendo will communicate additional details about how and when to reserve a pass at a later date.

Actually, last year it did mean just that, and everyone was disappointed because they only showed off games coming soon.

So they're not focusing e3 in one single game like they did with Zelda, Smash, Mario, etc

That could actually be a good thing but many thought animal crossing would be it this year.

Erdrick is almost here 😭😍
If Nintendo continues their “2 Smash reveals at every E3 where Smash is relevant” trend, I’d expect the supposed Dragon Quest character (Erdrick or otherwise) during the Smash World Championship (shadow-dropped on the same day) & another Joker-style teaser reveal during the Direct.

I assume it's not unreasonable to keep an eye on the Smash tournament for a possible character announcement; wonder if we might get anything Splatoony at their event (New update details? I don't really know what schedule Nintendo are aiming for on those).

One thing's slightly nagging me: Even when we haven't had E3s specifically focussed on a single title, am I misremembering, or is it still not unusual for them to name one major title that would be getting further news in the PR as a teaser ("Mario Odyssey and other forthcoming games", that sort of thing)? I'm a little surprised Animal Crossing isn't mentioned in that regard, but I might be misremembering the format of PR past.

It's a safe bet that they will announce the final Pearl v Marina splatfest at the end of the tournament. I wouldn't expect anything beyond that though

Is America not as crazy for Animal Crossing as I thought? Would that not make for a great title to focus on like Smash, Mario and Zelda?

Or maybe its delayed to next year..

Or it’ll be there and they don’t have to mention it because there are lots of titles that will get coverage. Animal Crossing is not a game that gets major focus at E3.
