The ESA reconfirms Nintendo's presence at E3 2020

The Big N for the big show

A couple weeks back, Nintendo's Doug Bowser mentioned Nintendo's presence at E3 2020 during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

“We look forward to participating in E3 2020. It is one of many ideal venues for us this year to interact with people in a social and immersive environment. Every year, we base our approach to E3 on the content we have to share.”

Following that, the ESA has put out a press release today that reconfirms what Bowser had to say. Nintendo will indeed be a part of E3 2020, although specific plans have not yet been announced.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) today announced that registration for E3 2020: EVERYONE PLAYS will open February 15 at 11:00 AM EST, exclusively at www.E3Expo.com. The show returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 9-11, with an industry day on June 9, followed by two days open to all badge holders.

E3, the world’s premier event for computer and video games and related products, has been reimagined to include new stage experiences, experiential zones, and live events to showcase new titles and innovations in video games and to celebrate video game culture.

E3 2020 will feature special guest gamers, celebrities, and digital programming on the show floor while connecting with global audiences through extended livestreaming. A highlight will be the debut of an all-new floor experience that will be streamed to bring exclusive conversations with leading industry innovators and creators to attendees and fans worldwide.

“We are working to make E3 2020 a more interactive and immersive experience with a show floor that will amplify our exhibitors, their innovations, and announcements,” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President and CEO of the ESA. “The E3 experience is an industry showcase like no other. It connects media, brands, innovators, and super fans with one another.”

Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020, including Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda Softworks, SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., and Warner Bros. Games, among others.

E3 2020 pitch proposes that the expo "turn into a Gamescom-like festival"

The ESA is currently structuring their plans for E3 2020 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Although E3 is a large trade show by many accounts, events such as Gamescom have nearly 5x the amount of attendees as E3. As such, the ESA has decided that E3 2020 should feel more similar to Gamescom and that it will instead have eight "experience hubs." The image below showcases their current floor plan:

The ESA has also gone on record stating E3 2020 will cater more to consumers, and while media members will still have their own "media day," the goal of E3 2020 is to feel less like a trade show and more like a festival. The ESA feels that social media influencers in the millenial / Gen Z demographic are the most "social good" for their events, and they hope to utilize their influence to better their industry.
