Nintendo fans wondering about the company’s E3 plans can now cease their incessant pondering. There’s be a 40-minute Nintendo Direct on June 16 focused on Switch games, followed by three hours of deep dives via Treehouse Live.
The festivities kick off at 2:00 a.m. AEST on June 16 with a selection of Switch games, with a focus on those coming out in 2021. The Direct will run for about 40 minutes and won’t be focusing on hardware — rumours about a Switch Pro are still expecting something this week. The Treehouse Live stream, which traditionally runs immediately after the Direct, is scheduled to go for “around 3 hours”.
???? Nintendo at #E32021: 6/15, 9am PT!
Tune in for a #NintendoDirect with roughly 40 minutes of info focused exclusively on #NintendoSwitch software, mostly releasing in 2021, followed by around 3 hours of gameplay in #NintendoTreehouseLive | E3 2021.

The most interesting of those will then be shown off by developers during the three-hour Treehouse Live stream. And then Nintendo’s E3 is over and we can all go home and dream about Zeldas and Yoshis and whatnot. Sounds like a plan.
