Pokémon Go, Sun and Moon share the spotlight

Nintendo's E3 2016 livestream will dedicate time to three upcoming Pokémon games, according to the Japanese Pokémon website. The Nintendo Treehouse Live program will debut new information from upcoming smartphone game Pokémon Go, as well as show off this November's Pokémon Sun and Moon for Nintendo 3DS.

The live gameplay will air starting June 14. Pokémon Sun and Moon take the stage first after 9 a.m. PT, followed by a Q&A session with Niantic Labs, developer of Pokémon Go, on June 14 at 10 a.m. PT.

Nintendo previously said that it would dedicate this year's Treehouse Live show to The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. That game will be the company's only playable title on the showfloor at E3 2016. The livestream typically runs for the entire length of E3 — from June 14-16 — so it seems as though Nintendo has plenty of time to show off other games heading to its consoles.

Either way, Treehouse Live 2016 kicks off June 14 at 9 a.m. PT with a pre-E3 stream, showing new gameplay from The Legend of Zelda. The game is slated for release in March 2017 on both Wii U and the next Nintendo system, known as NX. As for Pokémon, Sun and Moon launch Nov. 18, while Pokémon Go is currently in closed beta stateside.

Correction: The Pokémon Go stream will air on June 15, not the day after, as previously stated. Pokémon Sun and Moon will be shown on the first day of the Treehouse show, June 14. The text above has been corrected.

Also part of the show are games like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Dragon Quest 7 for Nintendo 3DS and other upcoming titles, Nintendo announced.
