Nintendo dates E3 Direct

"Focused exclusively on Nintendo Switch software."

Nintendo will hold its big E3 Nintendo Direct on 15th June at 5pm UK time.

The showcase will run for 40 minutes and focus "exclusively on Nintendo Switch software", the company said, nodding to the rampant reports of an imminent Switch hardware reveal.

Of course, we're expecting that Nintendo Switch hardware reveal before E3 itself, paving the way for Nintendo and other developers to focus specifically on games during E3.

As in previous years, that 40-minute broadcast will then be followed by deeper dives into some of the games shown. Settle in for a further three hours of gameplay via the return of Nintendo Treehouse Live.

"Most" of the games shown during Nintendo's E3 presentation will launch in 2021, the company said. But will that include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2?

As ever, we'll be reporting live.
