Nintendo has recently announced their plans for E3. This year they aim to focus on their upcoming title Super Mario Odyssey. They revealed earlier that the game will be playable for the very first time at the show. Not much is known about the title except that Nintendo has described the game in a press release as a “sandbox style adventure,” similar to Super Mario Sunshine and the iconic Super Mario 64.
Nintendo’s E3 booth will also include the annual Nintendo Spotlight: E3 video presentation, a return of Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3, and tournaments for Arms and Splatoon 2, both of which will be live streamed from the show floor. The company also promises to announce new details on games coming out for the Nintendo Switch later this year.
“Our various E3 activities will showcase the next steps for Nintendo Switch, from a summer of social competitive gaming to a holiday season highlighted by a milestone Mario adventure,” Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America, said in a prepared statement. “With Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3, fans at home can watch in-depth gameplay of Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games launching this year.”
Fans can watch all of the content on Nintendo’s dedicated video stream, which will run from June 13 to June 15. E3 is also open to the public this year for the first time in the event’s history. So anyone who is willing to wait in line will be able to try out Super Mario Odyssey which is scheduled for release this holiday season.
