Nintendo has confirmed a date for its upcoming E3 2021 Direct. It will take place on June 15th at 9 AM PT and feature “roughly” 40 minutes of information on Nintendo Switch software. These are titles that are mostly releasing in 2021 so expect some titles for 2022 as well.
The Direct will be followed by about three hours of gameplay at Nintendo Treehouse Live. Nintendo had already confirmed its presence at E3 2021 but the timing is even more important given rumors surrounding the Switch Pro. An announcement is reportedly coming soon though listings for the same could go live on June 4th.
The Nintendo Switch Pro, if that’s what it ends up being called, will reportedly launch in September/October this year. An announcement is apparently coming before E3 2021 to provide more time for developers to showcase their titles at the event. A recent report indicates that the console will have a back-flap to replace the current kickstand along with a thicker dock (with USB 3.0 and an Ethernet port) and bigger OLED screen.
🗓 Nintendo at #E32021: 6/15, 9am PT!
Tune in for a #NintendoDirect with roughly 40 minutes of info focused exclusively on #NintendoSwitch software, mostly releasing in 2021, followed by around 3 hours of gameplay in #NintendoTreehouseLive | E3 2021.
