Nintendo @ E3 2019
Nintendo have sent a press release to share more details about their plans for E3 2019. First, a clarification about Nintendo Treehouse Live: the 3rd day (June 13th) will be entirely dedicated to indie games, it’s not just a special segment.
Next: on June 12th (3PM to 8PM) and June 15th (from 12PM to 5PM), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will be playable at 80 Best Buy stores across the United States, as part of the Nintendo Early Access event.
And as usual, there will be various activities at the Nintendo NY Store, such as:
- viewing parties for the tournaments, the Nintendo Direct presentation, and Nintendo Treehouse Live
- hands-on gameplay with select Nintendo Switch games
If you’re attending E3, make sure you reserve your free Warp Pipe Pass on this website, in order to cut in waiting times on Nintendo’s booth!
Finally, there will be a special sale on the Nintendo eShop, from June 11th to June 18th. The list of games will be added to this page as soon as the deals are live! Do note that it’s unclear whether Europe will also get a similar sale or not.
