This week, Nintendo revealed their E3 2018 plans, and right out of the gate they are putting the focus on the recently announced Super Smash Bros. Given their last two E3’s having their booth dedicated to Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey respectively– will this year be a Smash Bros. centric experience?
Below is the schedule of what to expect the week of E3 from Nintendo and can be watched at e3.nintendo.com:
Splatoon 2 World Championship opening rounds from 3:30-6:00 pm PT | 6:30-9:00 pm ET
Nintendo Video Presentation 9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET
Splatoon 2 World Championship final round
Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 starts after the Splatoon 2 finals
Nintendo Treehouse Live starts after the Nintendo Video Presentation
Nintendo Treehouse Live continues
All of the tweets and updates from Nintendo have been explicitly mentioning Super Smash Bros. being the centerpiece of the conference, but that’s not to say we won’t see more on other big titles we know are in the works such as Metroid Prime 4 and Pokemon, or some other games that we don’t know about yet– looking at you Animal Crossing.
