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”.

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.


  • We’ve got two more DLC fighters left and so I’m hoping that we get Crash Bandicoot as our 10th DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter’s Pass Vol 2 because while Toys for Bob is now support developer for Call of Duty Warzone.
    I say this is not the end for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the purple Dragon because it’s Crash Bandicoot 25th anniversary this year and Activision is going to be delivering Crash Bandicoot content this year just like what Canadian developer Beenox did when they delivered post launch content for the CTR Nitro Fueled Grand Prix which was earning enough nitro points to unlock new racers new karts new skins new decals and even stickers.
    But I’m not going to be watching the Nintendo E3 Direct at 2am on June 16 instead when I wake up I’m going to watch the replay of the Nintendo E3 Direct and hopefully see Crash Bandicoot appear in Smash as our 10th DLC fighter.
    Also I can’t wait to see what Nintendo Switch games are coming to Nintendo Switch this year and next year.
