Nintendo Lays Out Its E3 Schedule, Including A New Direct

Nintendo has revealed its E3 2019 schedule, and while it doesn't reveal anything particularly juicy, it does provide a general roadmap for when viewers can tune in to watch tournaments, Treehouse Live broadcasts, and a new Nintendo Direct.

The Direct will be taking place on June 11 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific. It should come as no surprise that the Switch is the focus of the livestream; the 3DS isn't mentioned in the blurb on Nintendo's official E3 page. After that (from June 11th through the 13th), the company is hosting its Nintendo Treehouse Live. Specific programming hasn't been revealed, since that would likely spoil whatever surprises are in store from the Direct. 

A few days beforehand, Nintendo is hosting international tournaments for both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. If you're in town for the show (or for, well, life) tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis (go here for more information). Otherwise, the tournaments will be broadcast live starting at 11:00 a.m. Pacific.
