In a financial results briefing — yes, the same one that brought us yesterday’s news regarding the Switch’s sales — Nintendo notes that they will not be hosting a large-scale press conference at E3 2017.
What’s more, the company notes that they’ll have further information about their E3 plans at a later date, not offering any confirmation that they’ll be doing a Direct and Treehouse stream as they have done in years prior.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Nintendo has been shy about having a live stage presence at E3 since 2015. Instead, the company has opted for a digital-only presence, with streams on Twitch and YouTube.
Plus, let’s not forget that Nintendo’s stage announcements are typically incredibly awkward, as we saw in January’s Switch reveal.
This shouldn’t worry fans of the mega publisher, though. Things are going well for Nintendo right now, with the Switch seeing a great deal of success in its first month and quite a few highly anticipated games on the horizon. We imagine that they’ll have some big news to share regarding more Switch games in the pipeline, but it looks like those news announcements will likely be coming from a Nintendo Direct.
