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.

Nintendo Kicks Off E3 2018 with Splatoon and Smash Bros. World Championships

E3 is quickly approaching and Nintendo have already started to reveal some of their plans for Gamer Christmas. Nintendo will kick off E3 with two highly intense tournaments. The Super Smash Bros. Invitational and the Splatoon 2 World Championships will go live on the 11th and 12th June 2018. If you aren’t at E3, never fear as Nintendo will be streaming the action live on their YouTube and Twitch channels.

The Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 will bring a specially invited group of Smash players and pit them against each other on the recently announced Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. This is likely the first time gameplay will be showcased to the world, so it should definitely be interesting to follow.

The Splatoon 2 World Championships will take the winners from the Splatoon European Championships, as well as winners from a soon to be announced online open tournament (hosted by BattleFly) for the US and Canada. There will also be open tournaments for Austrailia/New Zealand, and Japan. They will then go head to hear for an all out Inkling war at E3.

Skyrim for Switch gets Motion Control, Zelda Collaboration, and more!

Back in January, we learnt that Bethesda would be releasing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch later this year. Though we have yet to learn when exactly the title will be released, Bethesda did reveal a new trailer in their conference earlier, which details some of the features of the Switch version.

The trailer shows how the game utilises the motion sensors of the JoyCons… test, Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch has motion controls! Tap an Amiibo from the Zelda series on a JoyCon, a special treasure chest will appear, which will contain a special Zelda themed items. Finally, we can see the main character running around in the Champion’s Tunic from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, likely obtained from one of the treasure chests spawned.

Check out the official summary after the break.

The Big E3 Round Up [Strong Language]

It’s happened again, the big corporate circle jerk that is E3, and all consumers can do is hope a bit of errant spunk flies from the circle and pleases them with a bit of salty distraction from the inexorable journey to the grave.
Maybe it’s just that I’ve turned incredibly cynical over the years of exposure to the games industry’s shit but I find it very difficult to be in any way excited for E3 since almost everything shown is either years off, hyped to the balls and could never live up to it or will look considerably more shit that in the carefully choreographed “gameplay trailer”. And even as the first conference started I felt myself thinking “Oh why did I say I’d do this.” A feeling that is never a positive thing, nor one that abated throughout the whole ordeal.
Nevertheless, here I am on the other side of the conferences feeling a mix of relief and mild disappointment that I wasn’t proven wrong in my thoughts. So for what it’s worth, here is my round up of the E3 conferences and my thoughts on the shit that it’s spawned (that may have given the game away…)
