Nintendo E3 2018 press conference: start time, live stream, and schedule

E3 Nintendo Direct will reveal Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch and more

While most companies are sticking to large-scale stage shows at this year’s E3, Nintendo is once again going with a Nintendo Direct video presentation to show off its biggest games of the year.

Heading into E3 this year, Nintendo hasn’t said much about which games it will be showing off in its presentation, and with both Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild releasing last year, it’s possible we could get some new information on some of the company’s biggest first-party games that were announced at last year’s E3, like the new Yoshi game, or Metroid Prime 4.

The only game that has been announced for the video presentation so far is Nintendo’s brand-new Super Smash Bros. game. With Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch headlining the event, it’s likely we are going to get some character announcements and maybe even a release date for the popular series’ first entry on Switch.


The Nintendo Direct E3 2018 will be shown on Tuesday, June 12 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET on Nintendo’s Twitch and YouTube channels, or at the top of this post.
