Nintendo Plans Spotlight and Tournaments for E3 2017

Nintendo will be streaming an E3 Spotlight and Treehouse again this year.

Nintendo today revealed its showcase plans for E3 2017! First up will be a Nintendo Spotlight on June 13 at 9am PT/12pm ET, available for streaming on Nintendo's E3 website. Immediately after the Spotlight, the Treehouse crew will tackle many of the games announced in the Spotlight , with interviews and commentary from developers.

Finally, the company will be running tournaments for Splatoon 2 and Arms. The 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational and the 2017 Arms Open Invitational will be streamed from the Nintendo booth.

This is largely the same showcase that Nintendo offered last year, with a Direct stream and Treehouse talks. The difference is 2016 was largely focused on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, whereas Nintendo has a host of titles to show off this year.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
