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.

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!
