Nintendo Direct E3 2019 Date and Time Revealed as Firm Confirms No Hardware Reveal

"Let's a-go to E3!"

Don't look now, but E3 2019 is creeping up on us. In fact, we're close enough that Nintendo revealed its plans for the show on Twitter earlier today. Looks like there's lots of software on the menu, but we're unlikely to see any new hardware.

Nintendo is mostly sticking to what works for E3 2019. We'll see a Splatoon 2 World Championship, a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship, a Nintendo Direct presentation, and a three-day Treehouse Live presentation. The precise dates and times for each presentation are as follows:

  • Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019: June 8 at 11 a.m. PT
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3: June 8 at 2 p.m. PT
  • Nintendo Direct 2019: The meat of the show. Tune in on June 11 at 9 a.m. PT
  • Nintendo Treehouse: Live 2019: Should begin right after the June 11 Direct, and goes on for three days

Nintendo already has a page set up for E3 2019, and we expect you'll be able to tune in via the company's official YouTube and Twitch channels. Like always, we'll set you up with everything you need to know about the show, including date and time reminders, closer to the big moment.

2019 is going to be a big year for the Switch thanks to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Sword and Shield. We expect Nintendo will have lots to say about those games.

Finally, this is Nintendo we're talking about, so don't rule out an out-of-left-field surprise—but don't set your heart on seeing anything about the much-rumored Switch hardware revisions. According to Business Wire, the 2019 Nintendo Direct will focus entirely on software.

Don't forget to make friends with our E3 2019 guide. It has everything you need to know about the show, including presentation times and the rest of the show's schedule.
