Nintendo’s show will last a little longer than last year.
E3 is here now and already all kinds of juices are flowing. We already had the first big blow with EA showing off for their newest Star Wars game yesterday. Microsoft and Bethesda’s conferences are later today. Sony may not be here this year, but there’s still plenty going on. One thing is, of course, Nintendo’s annual Direct for the conference. Now we know how long it will be.
According to the Niconico streaming page, the Direct will go on for approximately 40 minutes. That will make it a little longer than last year’s Direct.
Nintendo has quite the list of games coming out this year, with the likes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Animal Crossing, and several others. Last year’s show was dominated by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, to an almost overwhelming degree some would argue, but we have such a large spread of titles slated for this year it shouldn’t be as lopsided. The Direct will air June 11th, so stay tuned.
