Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic emerging early last year, 2020 went without an E3 press conference, and as a result publishers and developers took alternative steps to advertise their upcoming games.

This year, however, the E3 brand is back. While it won’t be an in-person event, the ESA has confirmed via GameIndustry.biz that it has multiple publishing partners involved – including Nintendo.

Also involved are Ubisoft, Microsoft, Capcom, Konami, Take-Two, Warner Bros. and Koch Media. Notable absenses at the moment include Sony, Square Enix, Activision Blizzard, Sega, and Bandai Namco, though there are still a few months to go.

The digital event will take place between June 12th and June 15th, though little has been said about how the information will be presented, other than it being free to access. June 7th through June 11th have also been marked as media days.

We’ll be sure to bring you more on the event as it comes in!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Nintendo Direct presentation confirmed for June then. 😉 I lost interest in E3 a long time ago for several reasons, I’m only watching this for Nintendo and Capcom. I would like to see Square Enix, Sega and Bamco join in as well. I don’t expect Sony to join in however because they have made a point of staying away from E3, we probably get a State of Play presentation before (or maybe even after) this year’s E3.
