A possible E3 Direct?
Earlier this year, we learned that E3 was once again canceled after hearing many big names, including Nintendo, weren’t attending. This was disappointing news for many, as Nintendo always held a great direct for the event. Last year after a similar E3 cancelation, we never got a full-fledged Direct, only a Partner Showcase. Because of this, many are wondering if Nintendo will have a direct during this year’s E3 Timeframe.
According to Ethan Gach of Kotaku, Nintendo is planning on having a “digital showcase” sometime this year. While the “this year” portion is a little vague, with how close it is to E3 season, it seems likely we could be getting a presentation pretty soon. This could be backed up by the second part of his tweet, which says to expect more news from him in “coming weeks and months”.
Overall the timing lines up well for what would be E3 Season if it was still happening, and while this isn’t an official announcement, the news is from a quite reputable source. Heres hoping we do get a not-E3 E3 Direct!
