Nintendo returns to E3 this year with a new Nintendo Direct presentation. The Nintendo Direct for E3 2019 will stream live on Tuesday, June 11 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET. You can watch today’s Nintendo Direct above.

Nintendo Direct E3 2019 will focus “entirely on software, [and] will offer a look at games scheduled to launch in 2019,” Nintendo says. In other words: Nintendo won’t talk about a new model of the Switch at E3.

The company’s announced 2019 game lineup includes Super Mario Maker 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Astral Chain, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age — Definitive Edition, Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch, Daemon X Machina, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai says we can also expect information on the next DLC character to join the fighting game’s roster. Of course, we anticipate a few surprises, and information on games coming in 2020 as well.

Nintendo will also hold its traditional Nintendo Treehouse: Live stream at E3 2019. That will kick off right after today’s Nintendo Direct, and run from June 11-13.
