Nintendo’s E3 activities will kick off on Tuesday, June 13th at 9am PT (12pm ET) with the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 video presentation. Here is where they’ll show off their newest/upcoming titles, with the headliner being Super Mario Odyssey. Immediately following the video comes the Treehouse live streamed show. Featuring game demoes from titles on the 3DS and Switch as well as behind the scenes info, this stream is like a big Let’s Play session. Don’t worry about missing out as it’ll go on from June 13th to the 15th; there will be a lot of games being played. Good times!

Nintendo will also be hosting game tournaments for Splatoon 2 and ARMS, live from their booth on June 13th and 14th respectively. More information will be forthcoming as we get closer to E3. Personally, I hoping to hear about new games coming to the Switch. Tournaments and Super Mario is cool, those are things we already knew about. A few surprises here or there could do well for the fast selling system.
