BourneNintendo – Nintendo E3 Viewing Party 2018

E3 2018 is so close, I can nearly taste it. The real question isn’t what games and hardware will be announced next week, but just what heck would E3 taste like? Well, if I had to guess, pineapple… and cake, but the really good kind of cake.

If you are in Bournemouth next week, why not come down to Bournemouth University’s SUBU building to play some games and watch the entire event live. As part of BourneNintendo and LGBT+ Gaming Society, I am hosting a Nintendo E3 Viewing Party to collectively fanboy over each and every announcement Nintendo makes. Not only that, but I will have the Switch set up to so we can also play some great games while waiting for Nintendo’s presentation. Oh, did I mention there will be snacks to?


Tuesday 12th June 2018 from 15:30 until 20:00

Nintendo’s E3 2018 Details

Over the weekend, Nintendo announced their plans for this years E3 event. You know, that one week a year that is literally a second Christmas for gamers across the globe.

Kick-starting Nintendo’s presence at E3 2018 is the Splatoon 2 World Championships’ opening rounds. This will start at 11:30pm BST on Monday 11th June 2018 and will find the creme de la creme of worldwide Splatoon 2 champions.

The main event will proceed a day later on Tuesday 12th June 2018 in Nintendo’s Video Presentation. As per usual, Nintendo will be showcasing a range of upcoming Nintendo Switch games for 2018 (and probably beyond). Expect some Smash Bros. and new announcements here. It is currently unknown how long the presentation will be at this time.

The video presentation will be directly followed by three full days of Nintendo Treehouse: Live. This is the chance to get a closer looks at games from the video presentation, along with some commentary by the Nintendo Treehouse and game developers. If it’s anything like previous years, we may receive even more reveals.

The 12th June will also see the grand finales of not only the Splatoon 2 World Championships, but also the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, back to back. More details of specific timings will follow.

You can catch most, if not all, these events on our E3 2018 Hub, or Nintendo’s Official E3 Microsite.

Tatsumi Kimishima Retiring as President of Nintendo

Tatsumi Kimishima has been operating as the President of Nintendo for three years, taking over Satoru Iwata’s roles after his tragic and sudden passing. Though it was meant as a temporary role, he was president of the Japanese company over one of Nintendo’s most successful periods. That is, of course, the thriving launch of the Nintendo Switch.

When he steps down on the 28th June 2018, Shuntaro Furukawa will take the reins of Nintendo as the new president. He originally joined Nintendo in 1994, where he has worked in marketing for the company, as well as at The Pokémon Company. More recently, he has worked as Nintendo’s Managing Executive Officer, Supervisor of Corporate Analysis & Administration Division and Director.

We look forward to see what Furukawa can bring to Nintendo for the future.
