Nintendo’s E3 2018 Overview

With E3 2018 hitting off in just under one week, Nintendo have taken the initiative to explain their plans for E3 in more detail, as well as announce the official name of their video presentation: ‘Nintendo Direct: E3 2018’… who couldn’t see that coming!

Attendees of E3 will be excited to learn that both Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch and Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, along with other games, will be playable on the show floor. Those who wish to play Smash Bros. will need to register a timeslot beforehand however. Additionally, if you are caught playing your own Nintendo Switch while roaming the show floor, not only may you trip yourself up, but a Nintendo rep may also give you a super limited edition pin too!

All the details can be read after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
