We knew it was coming and now it’s official – Nintendo is returning to E3, and its schedule is pretty much unchanged from the past few years. We have a couple days worth of tournaments, followed by a Nintendo Direct on the morning of Tuesday, June 11th, which leads into a Treehouse stream from the show floor.
Join Nintendo for #E32019 starting on 6/8 with the World Championships for #SmashBrosUltimate and #Splatoon2. Then, be sure to follow along during the days of the show to find out the latest news for upcoming games on #NintendoSwitch. Check out https://t.co/0lcDwkB4FE for more! pic.twitter.com/39UaqVaF4i

Most enigmatic is the reference to the “Warp Pipe Pass”, which will allow attendees to play a “select game” in a designated time slot if they apply. Nintendo did something similar with Smash last year, but this time it seems like it’s for an unannounced title.
We’ll be bringing you coverage live from E3 next month, so look forward to it!
