With some big time games absent from Nintendo's E3 Direct, Bill Trinen spoke with IGN to confirm where the next Pokémon RPG and Metroid Prime 4 are.
E3 2018 Schedule, Dates, Games, and News
When is E3 2018?
E3 2018 will take place on June 12-14, 2018. However, let’s not forget that we’ll have all of the press conferences beforehand, typically starting on the Sunday before the showfloor opens. This year, however, things are starting EVEN earlier, with EA having their press conference on the Saturday prior, on June 10th. Way to one-up everyone, EA. You’d better bring Skate 4. You can find all of the rest of the important E3 2018 dates and times below.

How to Watch E3 2018 Live
The E3 2018 press conferences from Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft, and whoever else decides to have a presser this year will all be streamed online via Twitch and YouTube. We should also expect a Nintendo Direct at some point during that week that will be streamed live to millions. Stay tuned for more details.
All of the press conferences will be streamed via Twitch at Twitch.tv/e3/ (which will redirect you to the official Twitch stream), and it has been embedded below. For a full schedule from Twitch, click here.
E3 2018 will be here sooner than you know it, and we here at Nerdmuch.com start super early with our E3 2018 coverage. Because, well, we’re always THAT excited for it. To stay up to date with the latest E3 2018 news, announcements, trailers, and opinions, keep it locked to this page.

How to Get E3 2018 Public Passes
This morning (3/8/18), E3 announced that it will, for the first time ever, open its doors to the public. The convention will sell a total of 15,000 tickets that will be made available for purchase on Monday, February 13.
Each ticket will be priced at $250, or if you’re able to snag one early, you can pick it up for $100 off at $150 if you buy one of the first 1,000 tickets.
The E3 public tickets will allow goers to access the show floor, panel discussions, and all of the other events from Tuesday-Thursday of E3 week. More details about other access granted to the those with E3 2017 tickets will be announced soon.
This is certainly an odd choice for the convention to make, especially given the fact that the legitimacy of the necessity for the convention is questioned more and more every year. With it being open to the public, you’re going to see more games media snub their noses at the convention that once presented a way to exclusively bring new information to the public who didn’t have access.
The tickets will be made available on the official site starting Monday, so check back then and have your wallets at the ready; we’re pretty sure they’re going to sell out immediately.
