The main event for Nintendo at E3 will be the Digital Event which will be broadcast online at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 16. This will be the company’s time to showcase all of its upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games such as Star Fox, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Devil’s Third, Yoshi’s Wooly World, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, and more. Just don’t expect The Legend of Zelda as Nintendo has already stated that it will be skipping this year’s E3 following the title’s delay to 2016.
The Nintendo Treehouse will also make a return to this year’s E3 with online broadcasts directly from the E3 show floor. Last year featured live interviews with developers along with demos of games, so expect more in this vein.
Qualifying rounds for the event will begin at Best Buys in major cities across the US. Winners from the events, as well as invited competitors, will compete on the 14th for the crown of 2015 Nintendo World Champion.
Information on which Best Buy stores will participate and the games that will be used for qualifying will be announced soon.
Qualifying for the Nintendo World Championships 2015 will being at Best Buy locations around the United States starting on May 30.
“The winners from each regional event, plus competitors invited by Nintendo, will meet on June 14, at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles for a multi-round Nintendo game competition. In the end, one player will be crowned the 2015 Nintendo World Champion. Fans in Los Angeles will have the opportunity to attend the tournament, while others can watch online,” Nintendo detailed in its E3 press release.
