Here is the confirmed time and date of the Nintendo E3 2018 press conference

Once again, Nintendo will not be hosting a live press conference at E3. Instead, they will unveil their new games with a video presentation broadcast right before the show opens, at 9am on Tuesday June 12, 2018.

The broadcast will be streamed on the Nintendo E3 website, Twitch, and YouTube.


Once the video presentation has finished there will be three days of content from Nintendo Treehouse Live, including gameplay demos, and developer interviews. Nintendo’s E3 2018 booth will also host the Splatoon 2 World Championship, and a Super Smash Bros Invitational.

NIntendo E3 2018 schedule

As for the games, Nintendo says that its E3 slate will focus on new Switch games coming in 2018. This means plenty of time spent on the new Super Smash Bros. We can also expect to see more of the new Switch Yoshi game, some third-party titles such as Bayonetta 3, and perhaps even the next game in the Pokémon series. Metroid Prime 4, we fear, will have to wait for another year.

You can check out the stream with us here, and also please follow it live with us on Twitter because we’re working really hard at being good at social media are we famous influencers yet?

And if we haven’t heard by mid-June, we should also get full details of the Nintendo Switch online service which is set to launch in September.

If we could have one random announcement, how about a full follow-up to the Game Boy launch title, Super Mario Land?

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
