E3 2019 is in full swing, and so far, most of the show's buzz is hovering around Microsoft. We're very likely going to get a glimpse of the new Xbox at the studio's June 9 press conference, but additional tittle-tattle suggests Microsoft and Nintendo are going to show up on stage, hand-in-hand.
Earlier today, Twitter user Nibel pointed out Microsoft's official Twitter account posted a tweet outlining where everyone "needs to be" during E3 2019, and it included the date for Nintendo's own briefing at 9 a.m. PT on June 11. It's curious for Microsoft to promote its direct competition at E3—unless Microsoft is gearing up to become less competitive with Nintendo.
Granted, Microsoft's "Where you need to be" suggestion also promotes Bethesda's presser (today at 5:30 p.m. PT) and Ubisoft's presser (tomorrow at 1 p.m. PT). There might be more to this Nintendo/Microsoft crossover fanfic, though. Nibel also points out that French video game site JeuxVideo claims legendary Nintendo game developer Shigeru Miyamoto will appear on-stage at the Microsoft press conference later today.

There's been a lot of rumbling about Xbox Game Pass coming to the Switch, and former Xbox One exclusive Cuphead arrived recently on Switch as well. No denying Microsoft and Nintendo have been quite buddy-buddy recently. We might see what comes of it all very soon.
E3 is a busy, exciting, and confusing time of year. Look at our E3 2019 guide for showtimes and everything else you need to know.
